This was something that my family and I volunteered for every year.
Volunteer (Former Employee), San Diego, CaliforniaDecember 2, 2014
The volunteers got to serve and make meals for homeless and those who are less fortunate than others. I really enjoyed giving back and being able to cater to those who really never get that kind of experience.

Fun place to work, with wonderful co-workers.
Retail Assistant (Current Employee), Spokane, WANovember 28, 2014
Pros: employee discount and fun people to help and work with, and to learn from.
Cons: there are no open positions right now. i am there on a volunteer basis.
My day at work is varied. Generally, I find out what is needed of me and then fulfill those duties. Dealing with merchandise; gathering old stock for storage, putting out stock from storage and new stock from the warehouse. Put stock back into it's appropriate department. When needed, cashiering; knowing the sales, discounts and specials, and how to – more... count in or open and count out or close my till. Closing for the day is the hardest part because the job is so much fun. The most enjoyable part of my job are my coworkers and the customers that I get to deal with; the people are diverse and are great to help, work with and learn from. – less

A dynamic work environment
House Manager (Former Employee), Queens, NYNovember 23, 2014
Pros: challanges
Cons: short lunch breaks
As House manager,I have a busy schedule,managing clients,writing detailed reports on incidents and operation.A typical day involves,managing crisis and resolving issues between clients and forwarding current intake and discharge to NYC Department of Homeless services.

I learn to prioritize my activities in this fluid and dynamic environment,always – more... having crisis.I work with excellent and effective staff,whose efforts contribute to a smooth operation.

Management is key element in my operation. I have a management style that encourages staff,in that,i trained staff to have knowledge in various sectors in our operation,in other words,staff can perform in other areas,if the need arise.

Hardest part,is ensuring compliance by residents on programs,as participation is voluntary.Most enjoyable aspect is successful service delivery. – less
