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

I have been working at Goodwill part-time (more than a year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Goodwill as an intern (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
