I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Goodwill in August 2015.

Interview

It was pretty laid back. The lady who did my interview was very nice. I applied on Monday and she called Wednesday to set up and interview for Thursday, got offered the position on Sunday. She asked about my work history and if I thought I could do it. She showed me around and that was about it.

    Interview

    applied online even though that never works out for me. got a call about a week later asking if I was interested in employment. It was quite funny because I was searching for other jobs and was not properly dressed for an interview.But interview was easy you just have to pass a background check and you're good.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Goodwill (Pacific Beach, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Goodwill (Ottawa, IL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    You meet with the store manager and possibly another member of the management team, and they review a packet of questions with you. They aren't terribly difficult questions, but you are expected to put some thought into them. The interview itself took maybe 15 minutes, and by the end of it they had already let me know that they were interested in hiring me pending drug test and background check.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Goodwill (Moscow, ID) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Two people, manager and assistant manager. The assistant manager is just a witness and remains silent, which seems strange. Pretty basic questions, very simple process, no tests or iq exams, or personality analysis. They didnt throw any curve balls at all.

    There was none. They did not talk about pay.
