I worked at Goodwill full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The mission and the associates were the motivating factors for myself.

Cons

The more dedicated you are to their mission, and following corporate standards, the more likely you are to be fired. Investigations should not be finalized based on hearsay, or by people who are not going to gather all the facts. Use investigating tools.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find ways to keep the managers and regional managers from dismissing people who have followed corporate standards, and procedures.

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

    Pros

    They have benefits. You get a paid break every two hours.

    Cons

    The people who get promoted are the ones that try to get others in trouble. You have to work 28 hours a week to get benefits which would be fine but many employees are classified as 24 hour a week employees and then forced to work 40 hour weeks without benefits.
    Strict rules about everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward people who work hard instead of the employees who to get their coworkers in trouble.
    Pay hard workers a bit more so you won't have so much turn over.
