    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity full-time

    Pros

    Store management is great. Working in the store doing furniture repair also proves to be quite relaxing; plus meeting all sorts of people keeps things entertaining.

    Cons

    Executive management has lots of budget issues and as a driver, I am paid the same as a cashier.

    Advice to Management

    Added responsibly typically correlates with additional pay. I have never seen employee turnover at such a high rate; fix the pay scale and maybe you will keep employees.
