treated as just a number which is very sad as this is supposed to be a very caring charity. On the charity it is only by name for tax purposes and definitely would not give or donate anything to this company.
Pros
none
Cons
Poor management

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.

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 stress of having to deal with picky customers, stress of meeting high budget targets. Sorting through terrible donations and trying to deter customers donating rubbish. The thrill of finding something that a customer is after and making someone smile who has had a rough time. Some weeks have a lot of work as a casual other weeks can be fairly lean.
Pros
Everyday is different
Cons
Dealing with management and donations and some customers and limited staff

Great management

Hard to have a break in the staff room

I enjoy working at Salvos Stores as I have a great team of people to work with.
My days are varied with many different tasks to complete.

The overall management of the store is fantastic without the micro managing of the staff,
I love helping people to find not only the necessities that are required but also the little treasures that we have in stock.

Never go here for anything. I worked here I trusted the people. They betrayed my trust and broke my heart. I'll never forgive Salvos for how I was treated. Don't shop here, don't volunteer here, just go somewhere else.
Pros
Making "friends"
Cons
The friends are a lie no one there really cares about you

No respect shown to volunteers by manager and female staff members. Over priced on almost everything they sell including furniture. Female staff member returning next week after being dismissed for bullying another staff member and reducing her to tears. Everything was covered up, even though the camers would have captured everything. These people think that it is a real army....but in fact its a sham.
Pros
Air conditioned
Cons
Everything else.

Store managers must meet monthly sales targets and all levels of management from store level as well as area managers, regional managers etc,all the way up to CEO receive monthly bonuses if sales targets are met. Never attempt to speak up about any dishonesty within senior management as you will be immediately DELETED from this organisation.
Pros
There are some beautiful retail assistants as well as volunteers who are very genuine.
Cons
Please read review

Although the staff and volunteers are great to work with, the area managers are very difficult and at times bully the managers to make their budgets. Companies ethics and values are below standard and most of the time profits are put before people.
Pros
Meeting some beautiful team members and customers.
Cons
Bullying culture exists within this company.
