Habitat for Humanity of Omaha
January 3, 2013

While volunteering with Habitat, in Omaha, I got to know several of their employees. After a year, I could no longer work there as I watched 1 manager, and 2 Supervisors get fired for disagreeing with the management, mainly because of being overworked and under prepared. At the same time I observed as there were under performing staff, who were allowed to stay because they were "minorities". (Another direct quote from an HR Manager).

Their volunteer management was a complete mess, with groups showing up to the wrong sites at wrong times, and many sites not being ready for the number of people. I observed as some volunteer groups treated the staff poorly, and continued to work on sites because they were "large donors" (a direct quote from a Habitat Manager).

Overall, I was very disappointed with a local group doing such a dis-service to an organization that has such a large and respectable name. I have several friends, and families of those mis-treated and even fired by this organization (over primarily political issues) that will never donate, volunteer, and who have little good to say, especially about their upper management.
