The ReStore has a tight knit family atmosphere in both customer and co-worker relationships.
The ReStore team is flexible with my schedule as a mom and a student.
What I wish was different
Consistency in work flow is often troubling. Because the ReStore relies heavily on volunteers and donations, even with a title of cashier I tend to double as a store associate and custodian. Those actually employed there are often stretched to the max in their capabilities.
Jobs at the Restore are far and few in between. However, if you are interested in working for an entity that helps to reduce homelessness and defeat poverty, then you might consider volunteering at our local ReStore to become acquainted with the inner workings and then snagging a position when it becomes available. Also, the ReStore partners with the Americorps VISTA program with short-term programs available in the summer. There is also a year long term but it is harder to get the single position that is available.
