Friendly people
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Shoreline, WAApril 13, 2012
Pros: discount on furniture
Cons: by the time you get your pay, there is nothing left to choose from.
This is a good place to work or even volunteer! All of the employees have great attitudes but the manager was hard to get along with.

The most enjoyable part of the job would definitely be finishing the day knowing that you have donated your spare time to help such an amazing corporation run its day to day procedures.

This is a great place to work, Too bad it didn't last long
General Labourer (Former Employee), Windsor, ONJanuary 15, 2014
Pros: the nicest people you'll ever meet. steady work. never run of things you need to accomplish
Cons: short time working there. was only a temp
I loved working here, It was great to meet kind warm people of all sorts of backgrounds. The jobs and tasked preformed were labor intensive but if you know what you were doing it was a breeze

You fist start off with collecting donations that the trucks would bring in or people that would drop off donations. Then a team of people would sort threw the – more... donations looking for quality from new to gently used clothing. What ever wasn't good enough to make the cut would then be throw into a compactor and was then bailed for donations that were sent overseas to 3rd world countries. Other clothing items (such as t-shirts with prints) were cut into rags that would be given to the salvation army to help the less fortunate bathe or do general cleaning.

Nothing went to waste here. The old electronics that were donated were inspected for mercury batteries that were removed and disposed of properly. Other electronics that were not able to be salvaged or deemed out of date were stripped of all metal compensates and were sent to the recycling bin for drop off. – less

Productive and Essential Charity.
Sales Assistant (Current Employee), Navan. Co. MeathOctober 23, 2012
Pros: it gave me the oppurtunity to learn new skills like cash handling.
Cons: we have to deal with some very difficult customers
It is an interesting place to work as i get to meet people and see how much the charity helps people in need and how the numbers are increasing for them to help. I have learned customers skills and cash handling experience and work well as part of a team which is essential to create a good working environment. I enjoy the satisfaction of helping people.
