If you lose your job you cannot collect UE
Solicitation (Former Employee), CTJuly 31, 2015
Pros: None
Cons: Everything
Overall it should be better because your a doing the "most good" for people. No direction from the 1st day to the last and also just remember because they are a "church" and you are let go you CAN NOT collect UE benefits from them. You will go in thinking you are helping out the ones in need but not really, find another non-profit to work with!

Supervisor (Former Employee), Southgate, MIJuly 29, 2015
Pros: Good benfits
Cons: They dont care about their employes
Running the line having to put out 2800 pieces of clothing in 7 hours could never start on time due to other factors To lead my crew but also respect them as a person The managers of the store were great the district manager did things she shouldn't have! My co-workers were amazing!! The hardest part of the job was discipline of my co-workers when I felt most everyone was doing their job and management disagreed. I did not enjoy this job at all !!

Helping others
Management (Current Employee), KansasJuly 27, 2015
Pros: Great Benefits
Cons: Not much advancement
Really a great place to work for if you take the corrupt upper management out of the picture. Not much room for advancement. Store manager is the highest position you can achieve. However achieving that will take years because hardly anyone gets promoted, unless someone quits. The customers are great and are what make the day manageable.

I really love working there. I love the people and the culture, however, there isn't very much security.
DIRECTOR, HUMAN RESOURCES (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDJuly 26, 2015
Pros: Free lunches, environment
Cons: Security - I don't feel very secure there
What I like the most about my job is the variety. Everyday is different. One day I'm recruiting, the next day I'm facilitating orientation, the next day I'm handling employee relations and the next I'm doing performance management. It keeps me on my toes.
There's no one in the organization or program that I can say that I really dislike and that includes my administrator which is my boss. We are like a family here.
