Fun raising money for a great cause
Bellringer (Former Employee), Boone, NCJuly 18, 2015
Pros: Meeting people, morning meetings with coffee and snacks and inspirational message
Cons: Standing for long hours
This is only a 5-6 week per year assignment, but it's fun meeting and greeting customers and being outside. Although weather may be cold and you stand for long hours, if you dress appropriately and have good shoes, the time goes by quickly.

This giving community helps enrich lives of under-resourced families by giving aid where possible.
Volunteer (Former Employee), Evanston, ILJuly 17, 2015
Pros: Hands-on company with solid religious background, aiding families in need.
Cons: There are so many families and oftentimes few resources to help the needy.
In the short time that I was volunteering for the Salvation Army, I saw several lives impacted in a very positive way. People were helping people, not through hand-outs but through providing assistance to struggling families, working their way through tough situations.

Director of Operations (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA / McComb, MSJuly 13, 2015
Working for The Salvation Army there is never a typical day! However, each day had its rewards. In this position I had the opportunity to hold the hands of the sick and less less fortunate offering hope to a better way of life. It was also my responsibility to raise funds to meet operational budgets for my assigned area through public speaking and awareness events. I was responsible for the area of southwest Mississippi covering the lower five counties of the state. Through this position I learned to adapt quickly to a very different culture in the workplace while never compromising my integrity. In addition I hope though my style of people management I was able to bring constructive operational procedures that enhanced the day to day operations of the command as a whole. This describes my work in McComb, Ms
My work with the Army in Atlanta was very different. There my typical day was to manage the day to day operations of the business administration and Human Resources. Some of those responsibilities included payroll and benefit processing, and account payable,

Receptionist (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJuly 9, 2015
Pros: Seeing children smile.

During the holidays, you try your best to get what each child wished for and add something they may need. Each family received a box of holiday food. Everyone has a role. The hardest part was finding something everyone wanted. The Most enjoyable part was seeing children smile.
