    Pros

    stands behind mission to help community, everybody very friendly,

    Cons

    long hours, stores are filthy- people running goodwill think just because it's a thrift store they don't have to be clean (?), no set schedule, poor hiring and not being honest in interviewing (see below) leads to high turn-over, all stores run however the mgr feels- no price structure- made customers upset and confused

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest during interviewing. I was told no overtime expected and bonuses were "practically guaranteed". Nothing could be farther from the truth. I never worked less than 46 hrs (for same pay) and NEVER saw a bonus in 6 months. And when you try to take off on a company holiday, you are frowned upon for not working those additional hours too
