The Salvation Army Reviews

30 reviews
All Categories
I felt the supervision were very cold and standoffish with the interns. I was treated great by other counselors, intake coordinators, and staff. The experience I received was priceless, as I facilitated process, smoking cessation, anger management, and family groups. The Lead Counselor allowed me to do individual counseling sessions with eight to twelve Beneficiaries every week, and gave me awesome feedback in our weekly counselor's meeting. I was there for seventeen months, and they continuously encouraged me to apply for a full time position. When I finally went to their official site and applied, it took them six weeks to be interviewed by the same Lead Counselor who was encouraging me to apply. I heard from other interns that The Salvation Army tends to use Interns as often as possible, and only runs hiring adds as a formality. I tried my best to stick to counseling and avoid their politics or business model

The Salvation Army is a great place to work if you are passionate about mission-driven work. Can be frustrating if you like to shake things up as they tend to be stuck in their ways, but they are definitely helping people day in and out!
I worked as a Program Assistant at a Learning Center, which was a part-time after school program during the school year and a full-time day camp during the summer. You get paid a little over minimum wage, and it is mostly a teaching position. If you are passionate about teaching, or you are passionate about working with difficult and under-privileged children then you will be very good at this job and you will find the work difficult but enjoyable. However, if neither of these things is your passion, then you will not have an enjoyable time at this job. The work is hard and stressful, and you work with difficult kids who are, most of the time, uncooperative. Overall, I have worked here for a year and a half, and I enjoyed the children and my coworkers a lot.
