Horrible Pay/ No Benefits/No chance of advancement

Store Associate (Former Employee) Jonesboro, GA

ProsIt is a company that "puts people to work" so they give people a chance to work there regardless of who you are or where you come from.

Cons*No chance of Advancement
*As far as a Paycheck goes.....well it doesn't go very far at all. You will recieve the minimum pay available and might not even get a pay raise the WHOLE time you're working there. EX: Try $7.25/hour for a year and still no change???come on.....One word for that.....CHEAP
*OH! and NO BENEFITS....at least not any worth recieving.
*Favortism must go!
*Managers need to step it up (instead of relaxing in the office playing video games and listening to music) try going on the sales floor or even to the production area and helping out. Maybe even go around and get feedback from customers instead of just walking around "delegating" with your head up your ass.....something is always better than nothing.ALWAYS!
*Athough delegation is key to management success and even success of the company, it doesn't mean to give someone else your work load just because you don't feel like doing it yourself....or doing anything for that matter.
*No positive feedback.Try telling an employee they are doing a good job every once and a while.
*Management needs to take responsibility for their actions instead of making excuses and blaming associates for their own shortcomings.....Ex:monthly budget (thats where teamwork comes to play)
*Teamwork? What teamwork? people that work there are so worried about making friends.......& what other people are saying about them...GET OVER IT! IT'S A JOB! you don't need to be friends or have friends in order to get the job done.
...........Too many cons......
But HEY! it's a JOB! Even if it is a slave trade........

    A soap opera.

    Associate-Albuquerque, NM (Former Employee) Albuquerque, NM

    I worked at Goodwill


    Pros: Customers are usually nice. You get a 10% discount, and… Cons: Management on a power trip, some talk down to employees. Mine did. Lot of work. Little pay or respect. Fellow employees want to quickly suck… Advice to Senior Management: Get real about your expectations of employees, don't take them… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
