    app for another location called saying they had an opening else where. Went in for interview few days later. Normal question asked, said they had like 8 other people so no clue why they even bother to call me when i app for some where else. Been two month and no call back. See they are hiring for the same job NOT going to reapply.

    Donation Attendant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Denver, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Goodwill in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, I got a call back within a week. Interview was at the headquarters in Denver. I waited about 20 minutes until I actually got interviewed. The room I was interviewed in wasn't a very appropriate setting, the lady was wearing dirty jeans and a old t-shirt, and the room was filled with junk and there was trash all over place. Wearing slacks and a button up dress shirt was obviously too much for this interview. The questions were straightforward, and about a month later, I still have not received a call back letting me know if I got the job or not. No worries, I've gotten plenty of better job offers since then.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Pacific Beach, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Pacific Beach, CA
    Application Details

    interviewed at Goodwill in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was emailed and called back the next day. When I went in for the interview, there were two people there, but only one did the talking. She asked me questions about my ideal job, past experience, and whether I had any management experience. I am definitely "overqualified" by my education for the position, which became more apparent in the interview. I feel like I didn't fit the mold of what they were expecting.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult, but she asked me if I had management experience, so I'm not sure why that was asked, since I was just applying to be a cashier.   View Answer

    Donor Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Interview Details

    It was very simple and basically hassle free. Background check. The Donor Specialist position is not a management job, so the hiring process for this position was extremely simple. I really don't have any other input, they just want to make sure that a person is physically able to perform this job due to heavy lifting.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions as this is not a management position. The main question seemed to deal with honesty. As a Donor Specialist, especially at an independent location, there's the concern of theft.   Answer Question

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Portland, OR
    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Goodwill in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview through a recruiter. Everything was great until the interview. Kind of a bait and switch situation. Interviewed for a store manager position, and was told i would be hired as an assistant until I proved myself which could take anywhere from 6mts to 2years. They pride themselves on development, but it did not seem evident to me.
