Habitat for Humanity ReStore
I truly enjoyed my time there but my commute duding rush hour was approximately 1.5 hours.
I always enjoyed helping people and Habitat for Humanity believed in second chances. I believe everyone deserves a second chance.

Relaxed and fun
Working here allowed me to be creative in decorating and organizing the store making it easy for customers to find what they’re looking for. It gave me a lot of really good experience working with others and taking orders and making sure things get done the right way.

I didn't like it.
Not only is it the same experience as working a job, they don't pay most people either. And whoever they do pay is lucky to make enough to live on at that.

Fun place to work
Usually, I would wipe down the hardwood furniture throughout the store. Hardwood furniture would include chairs, tables, cabinets, and dressers. The job was not hard and my co workers were nice to me.

Stressfull place, but overall good fun
Typicall day would involve bouncing around everywhere juggling many things at one time, lots of physical activity and plenty of social work with customers. pricing items, directing volunteers. and much more that your paid for. In the end, it's a team effort.

Productive Work Place, Good People
Uphold the organization of the store. Receiving donations, pricing donations, and integrating donations into store isles. Workplace culture is hard work, being able to take orders and accomplish tasks set by supervisors. Hardest part of the job is finding space for donations to fit in the store. Most enjoyable part of the job is seeing people buy the donations, and the profit that is used to build affordable housing.
Pros
All profits benefit the building of affordable housing by Habitat for Humanity
Cons
Labor work, Like working in Home Depot

Good introduction to employment
The work was simple enough, but provided physical and mental challenges that could be solved either alone or with a team. I recommend this position to anyone looking for a place to start.

Every day was a different work day at habitat. some days you would find yourself receiving donations from customers, doing donation pick up's from donors house's, and even running the sales floor and helping customers with things they might need help finding. Overall it was a fun work place. Employees are very friendly and great to get along with.
Pros

I volunteered at Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore three days per week. I swept, cleaned, and kept the area tidy for customers. I worked on a class project and helped customers carry items out of the store.

Learned about house work and team building.
Rotating workers mean you have to constant adapt and pick up the slack for people. Rewarding experience to help the less fortunate.
Pros
Enjoyable experience and learn about basic house keeping

Long hours
