SOCIAL WORK INTERN (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – May 24, 2018
They really care about their staff. Staff go out of their way to be collaborative and supportive. The most enjoyable part of my job was assisting families with food from donations and the SA food bank.
Office Support (Former Employee) – Wyandotte, MI – May 23, 2018
I enjoyed being apart of the Salvation Army family for 6 months. I was able to assist in the front office, and with helping out the clients that came in with the resources from the food pantry and personal care items available,when needed.
I learn to put patience,kindness,sensitivity and listening into practice while being there. I learnt not to judge or put people down, but to pray for everyone that I came in contact with.
I enjoyed being there because God gave me grace to be a blessing in helping the people,and to use my time wisely in prayer for the people.
The hardest part about the job was not being able to assist those who needed a financial blessing for their rent,or transportation,or people who had just relocated to Michigan.
bell ringer (Former Employee) – Melbourne, FL – May 22, 2018
Great seasonal position. Ringing the bell for the red kettle campaign is a good way to earn some extra money while helping others. Many of the same people work every year which adds a sense of workplace continuity.
Adiminstrative (Former Employee) – North Carolina – May 22, 2018
This is a non-profit organization. It has a set of codes and ethics that are similar to non-profits in that the mission is pushed forward. The mission can sometime become more important the means to reach the end result.

Driver (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – May 21, 2018
Working for Salvation Army.....When I first started driving for Salvation Army, for the Red Bucket Campaign, it was an experience! I would take out the bell ringers and the empty buckets, lock them up to the poles, make sure the ringers had gloves, a mat to stand on, their apron, and a bell that worked, and go onto the next site to do the same thing all over again. Then, later I would take out another group that would replace them, and I would, unlock the full buckets and replace them with the empty ones, and place the full ones in a safe spot in the van. I would always enjoy talking to everyone that just got done ringing, telling stories about what had happened, while their were ringing their bell.
This job was for the summer, like many of my jobs have been. This job was very enjoyable because we got to work outside, with kids, and doing something that we all enjoyed. I had to make sure that all of the ropes course staff knew what they were doing and stayed focused while on the course. I also had to make a plan so that the kids can go through the course safely. Lastly, I also had to teach the staff how to check the course, safety on and off the course, and how to handle the equipment.
Custodial Director / Lead Chef (Former Employee) – Monroe, LA – May 21, 2018
A typical day would start out. Come in clean bathrooms and mop, sweep. All three building that included the chaple. I learn that alot of the time. Every thing that shines isn"t always gold. Management is the worest i have ever experinced. You can not give your opinion on anything. If you do your job will be terminated. This manager was the worset of the worset. The hardest part of my job. Was having patients with these people. Every day was a struggle to keep my sanity. The only part i enjoyed was helping. The homeless people try to get back on their feet. Seeing them do something positive with their lives. We as in crew all help support each other. It was a very scary experience. Which i am glad is over.
