Salvation Army was a fun place to work because of the staff and children attending summer camp.
Driver (Former Employee), Hampton, VAOctober 20, 2014
Pros: 1 hour lunches
Cons: no longevity at this position, which is what i was initially looking for while seeking employment. .
What I learned while being employed with the Salvation Army is that they sincerely care for all of the children that they provided childcare for.

Although I was employed with them for a short span the managing staff was very dedicated to fulfilling their roles which greatly exceeded my expectations. This had always occurred during a typical day at – more... work and was the most enjoyable part of it.

The hardest part of the job was waiting for some of the staff to get the children ready for these organized scheduled field trips causing us to be late for some of them (field trips). – less
