a typical day at work could consist of many things from sorting and pricing clothes to sorting brick a brack and then finding somewhere on the showroom floor to put it to going out on the truck and doing home deliveries. place is great everyone's easy going. hardest part is lifting heavy stuff probably also the most enjoyable
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 16 October 2018
Being a volunteer in a op shop can be a great experience as you get to met and greet new people and work with many different people. Volunteering for 5 years once a week you learn how communication skills, customer service, stock control, cleaning and other retail jobs.
CSE (Former Employee) – Collaroy NSW – 15 October 2018
Beautiful aged care Facility only thing lacking is the management etc. Coworkers are awsome friendly esp the RNs. They help eachother alot like teamwork. Only thing is some coworkers dont know how to respect others by speaking at their own tongue language other then that everything's spot on
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Epping NSW – 3 October 2018
Learnt that some of the locals are regular donors of Salvation Army. With two other friends, we all door-knocked within a delegated area. The least favourable thing that can ever happen on a door-knocking fundraiser is not receiving a response to your doorknock. Interesting thing is some houses have the coolest doorbells out there. Best thing is that we are rewarded with a free celebratory BBQ.
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Gosford NSW – 16 September 2018
I Volunteer on the sound desk regularly and other random task like working a food stand or collecting for the Red Shield Appeal as they appear. Its got a great group of people and its never makes you feel like quitting.
Casuals in this organisation are basically dispensable. Get tossed away the same way most of their not to standard donations are thrown away. They always have plenty of 'work for the dole' staff at hand which Salvos get paid by the government to take on as free labour! Can't help but conclude Salvos contribute more to poverty than help it!
Some genuinely nice retail assistants and lovely customers
Retail and Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Canberra ACT – 25 August 2018
Enjoyable place to work because the people cared about what they were doing and it was good to work for something that gave back to the community. Managed very well but actual work was generally and boring.
Volunteer Team Leader (Former Employee) – Whyalla SA – 16 August 2018
Great team of people to work with. Few leadership issues but nothing serious. Excellent facilities and average response to hazard reporting. Would recommend to those who would like to contribute to helping the less fortunate.
The other volunteers there were always welcoming and approachable, and the times are quite flexible. You get to know regulars and feel morally benefited. When I was there, presentation was fantastic and storage organisation was up to standard.
