I enjoyed working with The Salvation Army because not only was it working on my favorite season of the year but it gave me a warm feeling inside knowing that I was helping the less fortunate.

Not a bad job, but after the same routine daily and bickering co-workers, with no job advancement, it quickly gets old. Do not recommend.

A welcoming non-profit organization that is meets its desire to help others.
Corps Accountant/ HR Specialist (Current Employee), Sanford, FLAugust 12, 2015
The Salvation Army is a non profit organization that is dedicated to help those that require assistance, but it is also about providing an outlet for children in the community a safe and healthy environment where they can have fun and learn. Having been with this company for almost eleven years, I have learned great things about the company and its programs and its stance on helping those in need. Every day I am filled with an understanding of the Salvation Army's purpose to provide, even during instances where all we can provide is a shoulder and an ear. My co-workers and I have created a bond over these few years and believe that in the end, no matter the situation, we are always there to help not only the cases that come through our doors, but also each other with whatever problems arise.

Horrible
processing Line (Former Employee), Brighton, MIAugust 9, 2015
Pros: Constant hours
Cons: Co workers bickering like children
I first started to work as a floor assistant. Then was punished for something I didn't do and was sent to processes. We weren't allowed to wear coats in the processing line. I was apparently disrespectful to my supervisor and "rolled my eyes" I have a lazy eye and a stigmatized eye. So they did me a favor by letting me go.

Good place to work...
Cashier (Current Employee), Danville, PAAugust 7, 2015
Friendly atmosphere, family type place... if it were not for the fact that I moved and gas expenses have risen immensely, I would not be looking for another job closer to home.
