Had a tough experience at ReStore & want to warn others (I'm 67 w college so not stupid): the people there are 90% PAID employees (only 3 vols) & tightly-knit. The work is quite stressful, sweaty & dirty because they have so many donations & no time for much training. As a result, 2 of the paid staff can get pretty irritable. 1 of them interrupts constantly & won't even listen when a volunteer asks anything. I got the impression that some resent volunteers & only tolerate them. In addition, volunteers are not allowed near the cash register where tools are& if you need something, you have to ask & risk being the target of their rude reactions. I was called names & told to "get in the back" when I tried to ask where our scissors were. There is not enough equipment & the paid staff hoard it. If you have really thick skin & want to sweat, work there. If you like a little respect & courtesy, run like heck! I worked there over 2 months. It was great fun if you could stand the rudeness.
