Salvation Army is a volunteer organisation which raises money for charity by selling donations made by the community to the community. Salvation Army is friendly and relaxing place of work.

You either get it or you don't, but if you do, its a great team of like minded people, a large and varied organisation. It has faith based elements, but many non-faith based jobs too, so it suits all types who want to do caring work that makes a real difference. They are an inclusive employer and workplace and have a really positive culture.
Pros
Sense of purpose, many lovely people
Cons
not for profit = lower salary for work than you would get in different organisations, they have a lean workforce, I was made redundant

Little knowledge of professional practices in the workplace when dealing with volunteers and their safety. Support systems for employees was in conflict with volunteer structure.

I do sorting of donated goods. I do not get paid because I am on Job Search Allowance. I work only 2 full days in a week. I am allowed to work 15 hours a week.

Good staff to resident ratios.
New management, good changes coming

Questionable team work

Most RNs good, others treat carers like rubbish and inferior to them.

Shifts are not shared fairly

Residents not assessed fairly.
Eg absconding resident put in low care and residents on sling put in low care set up.

really good happy to work and easy. I don't think so they paid for a volunteer. I chose to work the salvation army because they help a lot people that why I donate my time because I don't have money.

I volunteered to door knock, handing out pamphlets. Although it did not pay i learned valuable people skills. the hours were long especially in the summer but it was good nonetheless.

We had a small party with the residents. We all were very excited and happy. I noticed that most of the residents came to join them which made me more happy for them. However, I was sad for the other residents who were missing their family.
Pros
free gifts
