Great place to work for, just not much room for growth or stimulating to the mind

Pros

Great environment, other employees, the usual customers that come in, supporting the "mission", friendly.

Cons

Hardly any appreciation from the upper level staff or senior regional staff. Regional decisions seem to negatively affect the store rather than helping or improving it. Not much growth and the work is hardly stimulating. It's more for those in the "in between" of life, whether it's high school, college, or beyond, that aren't looking for any particular motivation to move up within the company.

Advice to Management

Listen to employees needs and suggestions. Find a way where employees aren't reprimanded for voicing opinions about the company or its management staff.

    Pros

    Everyone was helpful and kind Executives and managers were very available Not too stressful at all

    Cons

    Extremely poor management Environment was okay Low wages

    Advice to Management

    The environment is sometimes TOO laid back and rules aren't being enforced. Employees would a lot of times not show up to work and they would have too many get away cards. This doesn't promote efficiency, positive work environment, and morale is low. Also, Goodwill needs to stop hiring managers that are not ready to take that role.


  2. Good Company, not for me.
