    I have been working at Goodwill full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Goodwill for almost 3 years. Good people to work for. Plenty of opportunities for upward mobility for those who like to make a difference! Proceeds of retail operations are utilized to help people with developmental disabilities.

    Cons

    Retail associates should be paid more. (As a manager, I've heard that an increase is being discussed). Turn over is excessive due to wages. It seems as if I train new associates so they can work for someone else!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase starting wage significantly to retain employees. Implement a benefit package for part time employees. Of course, as a member of management, I would welcome an increase in salary but I believe the priority should be placed on associate wages first!
