I have been working at Goodwill full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Their mission of putting people to work. The customers and assisting people to find what they need. Noble mission and do a lot of good for the community.

Cons

Do not value employees. Inability to move up in most cases. Education is useless. Treatment of average employees by store managers can be difficult and unsatisfactory. Although not advertised, the bottom line is more important than employees. Health benefits are discount insurance only, no sick leave offered but do earn personal time off. Beginning salary is a little better than minimum wage with quarter per hour raises annually depending upon performance. Job Job is not

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your employees more. Offer career paths to move up in the organization based on such factors as performance, interests, and education. Offer full medical and not discount insurance. When making budget, then employees should also receive bonuses and not just managers. Better treatment is needed.

    I have been working at Goodwill full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job is very easy, monotonous and can be done half-asleep. Even at the management level.

    Cons

    There are more politics and backbiting in this company than any other I have ever worked for. The best way to move up in the company is to make inside friends and to buy bribe or cheat your way to the top. I've worked for this company for five years in nine different stores in two different states and have seen it in every location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create stricter policies to reprimand those that abuse the system
