I worked at Goodwill part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Autonomy - sort of; easy job

Cons

constant supervision; second-guessed my mgmt; treated like criminally-minded children

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just because you hire people with records does not mean all of your employees are criminals. Your level of distrust in your employees is unfortunate. Instead of rewarding your hardworking, long-term employees with a raise or bonus, you spend several thousand dollars on a faulty surveillance system. All Hail Big Brother.

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

    Pros

    Their mission to put people to work is a noble cause. Most of the customers are great and the regulars really care.

    Cons

    Harsh working conditions, ill treatment of employees, discount insurance that is not worth paying for, no employee value, education means nothing, low wages, little to no advancement offered, favoritism, high turnover rate, managers get bonuses for meeting budget while employees get nothing, unrealistic goals expected, and long hours standing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees more, offer better health benefits, offer better wages, promote more within than externally, keep a closer eye on the managers in the stores, offer bonuses based on performance, make education mean more, formulate realistic goals, and stop favoritism.
