LEAD CASHIER/STORE MANAGER IN CHARGE (Former Employee), Anchorage, AK – April 1, 2014
Pros: meet new people and help them make a difference
Cons: the salvation army is not out to help anyone just making money off of the needs of consumers, that is all.
While working with The Salvation Army, I found out that even your managers either aren't sure or either not caring. The only reason why I stood it out with this employer is because I worked hard to get where I was. Promised promotions that never came through. Then being transferred and demoted for a cause that was never my fault to begin with, on top – more... of that suspended and then given vacation time to work in the warehouse with men from their program, ODD MUCH? In the sense of it all, I do not appreciate being stepped on, and as much as I would love to take it all back and continue school, I can't because what's done is done. Now when I go into looking for other options I'm stuck with having to put down supervisors that not only solely wanted to gone but weren't even professional about it either!? Would I ever recommend this company as far as it's reputation goes to work within? No, I would not. As far as donations go? Yes, for they'll take even literal trash and make their employees sort through it. It's very disturbing to think about, and no I will not tread lightly on that case. The Captain would come into stores and yell at the employees, and basically threaten them with their jobs due to his own job being on the line. My advice, look for a reliable and sturdy company to work within, one that will promise you growth and dependability! – less
