Did my internship at the Elyria, ohio center. It was a nice experience, but could use some improvement.
Operations Assistant-internship (Former Employee), Elyria, OHDecember 30, 2014
I learned alot, but some improvement is needed. I was expecting more hands on work, but instead didnt get to do much. Too much emphasis was put on my weight, and not where it should have been, I felt the organization was discriminating against me because of non important issues.

Kettle Worker Summary
Kettle Worker (Former Employee), Coatesville, PADecember 29, 2014
Pros: knowing i was helping someone other than myself.
Cons: bitter cold and people assuming i was asking for money when stating "good morning".
Ringing the bell to capture customer attention as I greeted them during the holiday season, to support donations given.

Engaging people as they approached, met children who would bring their parents to me and made work pleasant and worth the agony of enduring the bitter weather of the season.

It was nice seeing people i knew.
Bellringer (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CADecember 27, 2014
Pros: there were breaks at 12 and 4 for 15 minutes and a half hour lunch at two.
Cons: it only lasted a little over month
A typical day at work would be standing from 10 am to 630 pm in front of a store and ringing a bell. I would greet the people who came and tell the people leaving to have a nice day. It was a very easy job for me but a lot of people apparently didn't last.

great work place
Sales Associate (Former Employee), vancouver,waDecember 22, 2014
Pros: in my area, great co-workers, loving customers
Cons: late breaks, write ups for nothing, and too much stress
the salvation army was my first job. I worked there for 9 months because it was a wonderful work place. great employees and the management was very helpful when training it's employees. after I got hired for part time work I leaned how to work the cash register and help close the tills after hours. my co-workers became a second family to me we we're a great team. the hardest part of my job was when the store closed. the most enjoyable part was getting to work with a lot of great people in great community.
