    I worked at Goodwill full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Goodwill-Suncoast's mission is to help people achieve their full potential through the dignity and power of work. 87.7% of GIS budget is devoted to programs and services. Last year, they placed 10,178 people in jobs and served 66,841 people. Employees stay with Goodwill and are dedicated to the mission. Great benefits and very well run company.Senior management is excellent, knowledgeable and fair, except for one.

    Cons

    Rethink, reevaluate HR, HR management, and power base. Too much power in the VP of HR hands. Be aware you will put in overtime if you are a manager and you are salaried so you will not get paid overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is a good company, however each department is starved for more staff. Distribute the work more fairly.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay for management. Feeling of helping others. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    Unpaid overtime every week. Horrible pay for associates. It's hard to get people to work as hard as we expect them to for part time minimum wage. Bad communication between different departments in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication/organization between different departments needs work. Appropriate compensation for amount of work done.
