Volunteer (Former Employee), Hempstead, NYMay 18, 2014
Pros: meeting new people every day, learning how to do a wide range of things
Cons: all of it was volunteer work, so i never got payed for it.
It was really educational to work at The Salvation Army. With all of the variety of things we have done, from helping fix up camp to driving out and handing sandwiches to unemployed people, I knew that whenever I would go out with the Army, that I would grow and learn something.

Bellringer (Former Employee), Hickory, NCMay 18, 2014
Pros: helping a good cause
Cons: it was cold
Working at the Salvation army was fun you got to be out in the public at a store and collect donations during the holiday season. The proceeds went to a good cause and I liked working there. The management was great and they always had a meeting before the day began. They offered to give rides so that people did not have to use their own gas to get – more... back and forth. the co-workers were awesome and most were older and very nice to me since I was the youngest one working for the company at the time. The only downside to working there is the fact that you had to stay outside the entire time and I was working nights so when the sun went down it got even colder. – less

Childcare employee (Former Employee), Roxbury, MAMay 17, 2014
Pros: mentoring kids.
Cons: pay was low, hours were short.
The job was a good experience since I am looking to go into healthcare and be a pediatrician. I enjoyed helping the students with their homework and teaching them things they didn't . At times the job was pressuring, I felt I was given responsibilities that I wasn't trained for. Overall the job was a good experience, mentally and physically,

Social Service Worker (Former Employee), McKinney, TXMay 14, 2014
My position at this job was paid for by a grant that the organization received from a private donor. The economy encountered a downturn, and the grant money disappeared and took my position along with it. The work was generally rewarding. I was able to help many needy members of the community through this position.
