Donation Organizer/Distributor (Ancien employé) – 11 Essa Rd, Barrie, ON L4N 3K4 – 6 août 2019
Everyone is super friendly, helpful and they without hesitation will put the satisfaction of their customers before themselves and with that being said, safety is still their primary concern and they will recommend any other alternative plans if an obstacle approaches that cannot be handled by themselves such as suggesting other locations that can take furniture in for donations.

Assistant Manager (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 21 juillet 2019
a typical work day was working sorting, tagging and hanging items, what I learned is was how things operationed, MANAGEMENT well they need work and you do not hire good people and have no plan in place to use their skills, workplace culture is ok but everyone was happy most of the time, the hardest part of the job would being told what to do by everyone, there is no leader who has a plan so the confession continue, the best part of the job would be meeting new people.
Hairstylist (Ancien employé) – Barrie, ON – 19 juillet 2019
I volunteered a couple times here over the past couple years. I was helping with taking care of the homeless, the staff was very friendly overworked but because they have a big heart and they know how severely important it is to take care of others especially in the Barrie Area. It is very sad to see the population of people that are homeless hopefully we can come to a resolution in the near future and take all the stress off the Salvation Army. I quite enjoyed what I did and I love to work with them in the future if they ever asked. I feel it's very important that everybody works together in a community to take care of each other that is how I was raised in my values and morals ,you never know when you might be in that kind of a situation and you would just hope and pray that somebody would help you and your family, pay it forward my motto.
Volunteer (Ancien employé) – 1458 Dundas St E, Mississauga, ON L4X 1L4 – 18 juillet 2019
as a volunteer the job wasnt too demanding, i would come there occasionally and my hours still documented. There was a variety of different tasks we were entrusted to do, they were usually very repetitive, but you would get fairly long breaks every 4 hours (30 min).
Great place to make a difference but co-workers can be a risk
STREET OUTREACH WORKER (Ancien employé) – Ottawa, ON – 17 juillet 2019
Began working here and loved the job initially but then began to see the unfair expectations of work load between staff. Older staff that had been around for a long time had become lazy and regularly lied to management about completing work but it was never dealt with even when repeatedly brought up to management. Instead the staff who complained are disciplined and ostracised for speaking up. Otherwise if you are working with staff who are willing to try you can really help. Recent implementation of a referral list for street living individuals for housing services means you're the front line to help street living individuals return to housing. Great ability to connect with other front line agencies and services. Additionally, lots of driving at all hours and in all weather conditions which can also be stressful.
First line to help redirect homeless to housed
Inconsistent work load, some VERY quiet days some VERY busy
FLOATER (Ancien employé) – 12928 50 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5A 4L2 – 12 juillet 2019
Every day felt mysterious we've had interesting customers coming in i've met some very nice people. I've learned to mind my own business and to just do my job. The manager was very friendly very understanding and made me feel not only like a employee but a friend. The hardest part of my job was when my feet would always hurt but i fought through the day and got my job done as needed. The most enjoyable part of my job was making my co workers laugh and just having fun and feeling welcomed and comfortable.
having a break for 15 minutes especially when it was needed
some days felt long and exhausting but i still made the best of it
