    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Goodwill in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was in contact with Samanthi, my-would-be-supervisor. I emailed my resume, cover letter, and writing sample to her. She then notified me that there was job posting. I submitted my information through a website form. I was contacted by Bobby Pierce via phone to set up an interview time. He asked me to fill out a long application online before my interview. When I came into the campus in Lincoln Heights, I signed in and waited to be called in. I was asked a couple of questions by Bobby and then more questions by Samanthi and Trisha (I think that's her name).

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I was asked for a face to face interview two months later. I thought it was a very long process. It was a panel interview with a development director, and two other people. It ended up being only an 30 minute interview, and felt very rushed. They didn't seem to explain the mission of Goodwill, or much of what I would I would be doing. I got the sense that no one liked me in the room.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was conducted in a professional manner. I was given two interviews. The first one was with the manager of the program and the second one was with the Vice President of the Vocational program. I was provided a tour of the program and given extensive trainings which came with a certificate after completion. I really enjoyed working around the people and the being able to wear jeans on Fridays. Overall, this was a good entry level job.
