I worked for the Salvation Army in Dallas, TX at their Carr P. Collins Social Services Center. I just wanted to share my experience. I did not have a good experience working for this organization because of multiple reasons. I witnessed the majority of their staff verbally abuse and mistreat their clients. The management also engaged in training new staff to do this very same thing. While it may seem unbelievable that the Salvation Army would permit this to go on, it occurs nearly every single day. Staff at this location even engaged in stealing donations , and I though this was very unfair to the people that they are supposed to be serving. Everytime a donation is stolen it's as if they're stealing from the very people that they serve.
While working at this facility, I was attacked by one of their clients with a trashcan. While I was an outstanding employee, the Salvation Army feared a Worker's Compensation Claim and terminated my employment. If you take a look at www.indeed.com, you will find many people complaining about the way this organizations treats it's employees.
I was very disappointed in the Salvation Army at this location.
