Work like a dog for pennies, but feel good about yourself.

Donations Attendant (Current Employee)
Richmond, VA

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

ProsThe mission. The business experience. The operations experience. What you can learn by paying attention to day-to-day operations of the company.

ConsPoor pay. Unflexible schedules. Uncooperative management. Disproportionate African American employment. Little room for advancement. Promotions/Raises only happen on a yearly basis.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe management is not open to ideas or new ways to do things. Most management is so concerned with the bottom line and profits that they miss ideas or new methods that would actually be MORE efficient, and produce higher profits.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
