    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Goodwill in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter. I did one 30-45 minute phone interview, and then one face-to-face interview that lasted around 30-45 minutes as well. The two recruiters and manager that I spoke with were extremely nice. They seem to believe in mission and are very welcoming. I asked each person about how they like working for the company, and they seemed genuine when they said they loved working their. Both said it's the best place for good work-life balance, and that they couldn't see themselves working anywhere else.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't try to negotiate. They gave me all of the information and I was happy with the offer. They pay more, and have more benefits than I expected.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Goodwill in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very friendly interiewer. Read questions from a packet, so I imagine that the questions everywhere should be very similar. We discussed my available hours and sales experience. At the end of the interview I signed off on my open hours and their right to perform a background check and a drug test.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodridge, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at Goodwill in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied at the Bolingbrook, IL location, but received a call about interviewing for a position at the new Woodridge location that is scheduled to open sometime in July. I was greeted very cordially by several of the staff members, including HR, and the interview was very, very easy. My interviewer was very kind and laid-back, and hired me that same day - which was nice, no "waiting game" to play. I was referred to a clinic in my area for a drug test and was told they would do a background check.
