No time to go to the toilet, no time to eat, no security cameras, no good direction or supervision, no option for development. The salary of managers is really low for the work they do. Salaries are not assigned according to the size and amount of work of each store. Managers of a big store and with a big volume of work are paid the same than managers of a small store. (experience in Brisbane)

I believe that if you are a good worker and you help a Business to make millions of dollars, you should be rewarded or motivated at least. I know how new managers have been hired for a lot more money than the managers who have been working there for a long time. why? , no idea, friends, family members, who knows. The situation seems really unfair.
Pros
A discount for items to buy
Cons
work Saturdays for the same money

Salvos is good place to start up as volunteer, staff and management are good. It is fast paced with many activities from inquiries, collecting the donated items, cleaning, checking the quality ,pricing and presentation.
Multitasking is required with good customer care experience.
Pros
Friendly place to work
Cons
Multiple tasking when less employees.

A typical day has lots to be done, to keep the store in check as well as to interact and deliver the best customer services to customers. Organisation is a very essential factor when helping to run the store. The hardest part of the job is to do nothing if you are ever stationed at one particular position, with no customers around and cannot move too far from your spot. The most enjoyable part is communicating with everyone around you to make sure everyone has a great time there, whether they decide to purchase something or not.

good to gain work experience to find other jobs but not enough to sustain yourself or family. there is a nice work environment that is relaxed and slow paced. you have to be pretty social to be happy working here.

Management and upper management don't particularly care about their most of their staff members, I feel they play favourites alot. I would like to see better management and maybe better working conditions for their staff and volunteers. No chance to really progress further into a career unless your well liked. Staff discount is good.

Not enough hours. The entire culture of the salvos is not what you think. As as casual you get tossed around like a rag doll and are expected to know everything right off the bat, and if you don't perform like a god your first time at a different store the manager will never call you back despite the fact you're new. Look elsewhere for work.

The day was dependent on the number of people who donated on how bossy you were and how many trucks were dropping off and picking up must days it was busy
