    I have been working at Goodwill full-time for 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.

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

    Pros

    The company is financially stable and hasn't laid anybody off. The culture of the company is friendly but you do have to be productive.

    Cons

    The pay is a bit on the low side. The work is strenuous. There is a high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you would raise the base pay a little bit fewer people would leave the company.
