Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Springfield, ILJune 10, 2014
Pros: employees were great
Cons: low pay
I liked working here because of other employees. Manager was very nice and helpful when I had questions. I was hired on as a clerk and the day before I started they called and ask if I would like to be Assistant Manager. I took position and after a couple weeks they let me go due to not learning job quick enough for them

Great place to work. Unfortunately, only part time.
Emergency Assistance Social Services Case Manager (Current Employee), Dallas, TXJune 8, 2014
Pros: ability to meet people in community, challenging, rewarding, great coworkers and bosses.
Cons: part time.
The Salvation Army has a wonderful mission and is very intentional about meeting the needs of families and individuals in the community. The most difficult part of the job is the emotional burden that comes with listening to each person's story and family crisis. However, even though it can be emotionally draining, it is a great opportunity to show – more... love and compassion to someone who really needs it. This is one of the many reasons that this job is very rewarding. – less

Not such a fun place to work
Direct Care Worker (Former Employee), Brooklyn New YorkJune 5, 2014
I loved my clients, and helping them, but the management was corrupt and made it very diffucult to do my job. I still persevered, and eventually those that affected the clients negatively were fired.

Big brother watches you at all times!
Driver (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJune 2, 2014
It's a job in a Substance Abuse program. The staff are scrutinized as being a client also. There is no such thing as unemployment, unless you want to personally want to pay for it. Time working is not compensated. As a driver, doesn't matter whether you started today, or work for ten years! Cameras in the trucks to catch the drivers doing something – more... they consider wrong. – less

Very irritating place to work.
Customer Service Representative/Cashier (Former Employee), Holland, MIJune 1, 2014
I have no words for what happened to me while I worked here. The managers were rude and didn't care about store policies. More often then not, I'd notice the managers sitting with their feet up, texting or chit chatting to each other while the staff was forced to take care of the storefront in the busiest of hours. Performance is judged based on hearsay – more... instead of actual observation. The only positive thing about working here was that it was for a good cause, but unfortunately the management was just terrible. Also the store was very dirty. One person can only clean so much. – less

counter-productive workplace atmosphere
Head Electronics Testing Dept (Former Employee), Utica, MIMay 30, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers, independent work, customer interaction
Cons: no benefits, poor clock-in system, wasteful atmosphere
Testing, pricing, light repair, displays, and on floor customer assistance all performed almost entirely and exclusively by myself. I enjoyed my coworkers and my department, but there was no room for growth, and the income wasn't reflective of my work. Customers found me friendly and helpful.
Hardest part of the job was being threatened by certain members – more... of management unfairly and without reason. – less
