no fun
Cashier (Former Employee), Colorado Springs,CoApril 2, 2015
Pros: sometimes having pot lucks but it was mostly a 30 mins
Cons: two 15 mins breaks
I worked register, stocked merchandise on shelves, hanged clothes on racks. My management was a help at times. my co-worker I got along with some. The hardest was stacking shelves with to much, and hanging the clothing on rack to much made it look messy. My most enjoyable was just having a job.

House Aide (Former Employee), Jefferson City, MOApril 1, 2015
Pros: Family oriented, cozy
Cons: none
A typical day at the homeless shelter was supervising residents and monitoring for compliance of rules. Doing intake, and monitoring job seeking, alcohol testing, counseling, confronting and conferencing.

Management and co-workers were a team and getting the job done.

The hardest part of the job was to pass to baton to the next shift attendant and go home.

Most enjoyable part of the job was the people. Working with people is great.

I had work Tuesday,Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Sometimes Sunday with 29 hours a week. My minimum wage was 8.25 and my jobs was backroom, merchandiser, and cashier. The hardest job was put up with bad attitude from supervisors and the managers. The service was poor it need more training employees and less rules.

Fun workplace with a noble cause
Volunteer Work (Current Employee), Killeen, TXMarch 26, 2015
I'm usually in the warehouse, sorting goods to be brought out to the pricing table. I also take in donations and occasionally write out receipts for their donated items. I also help move furniture, sterilize said furniture and help the employees there whenever they request it. The management are genuinely good people who care about helping those that can't help themselves. The other employees/ fellow volunteers are also nice and more than willing to help others out. The hardest part of the job for me is trying to maneuver large pieces of furniture through the small doors into/out of the store. The most enjoyable part for me is going through the donated items; it's always interesting to me to see the different things that come through the warehouse.
