Outlet World stores foster societal degradation with customers competing aggressively for strangely priced goods.

I worked at Goodwill full-time for less than a year

Pros

Frequently accepting applications for positions with full-time benefits. Starting pay is slightly higher than minimum wage. A chance to learn cashiering with full responsibility.

Cons

Conflicting job requirements, unrealistic expectations, incompetent management, inconsistent hours, distrust toward employees, and inconsistent business practices that make jobs a stressful environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The inability to set and enforce consistent pricing on Outlet World goods has created a negative environment for employees and customers alike. The need to haggle pricing breeds distrust from management and stressful customer relations.

    I have been working at Goodwill full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's an honest living, with some decent benefits if you can make it to that point.

    Cons

    Horrible working conditions, aside from the pet dandur, fleas, rat feces, and very heavy dust, you have unreasonable working conditions. If the person sending the totes is mad at you or does not like you then you will never meet your quota. Not enough proper functioning equipment to get the job done, like pricing guns. God forbid you ask for personal protective equipment, they get mad at you for that. They scream at you in front of all your co-workers and think nothing of it (workplace bullying). The employees that have been here for years treat new people very poorly and no one does anything about that. Overall, not worth the extreme stress for a job that pays only minimum wage. The supervisors are a joke. They are the bullyies and do nothing but intimidate people. It's almost comical how they do it, they have nothing better to do? Someone with higher authority or a company spy should go in and experience what its like. Maybe something would get done. Find a different job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bullying. Stop violating simple OSHA rules. Do something productive for the company instead of emotionally beating up employees who don't deserve it. Give people a chance even if you are miserable in your own life.

    I have been working at Goodwill part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people
    Learning experience
    Variety of people
    Benefits after 30 hours/week

    Cons

    Haphazard schedule - that's just the nature of the job. If you can't improvise on a daily basis, this job isn't for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
