    Very unhappy with the company that claims "Putting people to work".

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

    Pros

    One only things good about working for Goodwill in Austin is the people who work with you. I left GWICT with some friends for life. The benefits were good as well.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. It is almost slave labor and no matter what they tell you, there are millions of barriers to employment. Their motto is a complete scam. After working my butt off for 2 years......I wouldn't even do community service there if you paid me. All of the managers they hire don't have a clue what it is to have compassion for your employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yall need to take a few of those classes you offer to your regular employees and have a few of the prople that sit on their butts all day making 20.00 per hour at corp....come to the stores and see what we do for 8.00 per hour. It makes me sick

    The mission of the company is good, but the employee pay is shoddy.

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

    Pros

    Helping others to become employable in today's job market is a rewarding job.
    There is an employee discount for all re-sale merchandise.
    The location is central and easy to get to.

    Cons

    Pay disparity is a problem, which hurts moral.
    Any bonuses are based on a percentage of what a person makes. A 2% bonus for a part or flex-time employee making just over $8 per hour is insignificant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay more.
