    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodwill (Milwaukee, WI) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on a Saturday and got a call on the following Monday to come in for an interview. I went in the next day for the interview. It was about 10 minutes long. The questions weren't very hard. There were a lot of "tell me about a time that..." questions. I thought it went very well but they said they had a few more interviews to do and they would let me know in a couple days if I got the job. The following business day I got a call saying that I was being offered the job and to come in the following day to fill out paperwork and go for a drug test. The whole process from when I applied to when I was hired was only about a week.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodwill.

    Interview

    I had to submit a resume, and answer some questions online. I then got a call asking me to come in for an interview. At the store before the interview I had to fill out a sheet that had my availability to work on it. Then they took me to a back room where the interviewer asked questions about when and for how long I would be able to work, why I wanted the job, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot of questions about why I put down the availability that I did, which was sometimes kind of hard to answer.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goodwill (Santa Rosa, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    There were three interviews. It depended on which job you were applying for. I had applied for the Sales Associate Cashier. First they have you in a large group discussing the job and what is expected. After that, you go and test on your cash counting abilities, and then go in and answer questions from a panel interview. At the end you are asked to role play in the position you are applying for. It was fun. The panel was relaxed which relaxed the room. The questions from the panel were easy to answer - such as would you work at this branch.....I answered yes to all.

    Negotiation

    There isn't any negotiation - one get paid a starting salary and after three months the hourly wage will go up - then I believe it is yearly.
