I worked at Goodwill part-time for less than a year

Pros

Great place to gain teamwork experience and to learn accountability.Goodwill is a fair employer, giving credit where credit is due.

Cons

At times you feel like you are standing on thin ice. There are secret shoppers who come though and grade the employees, leaving with management their full report.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward employees for exemplary customer service. Positive reinforcement for going above and beyond expectations is a great way to motivate other employees to repeat the behavior.

    I worked at Goodwill full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Goodwill is in business to help people with disabillities -- self-imposed or otherwise.

    Cons

    A lot of the people who work here are not outward focused -- they're only interested in their own success, not the organizations or others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better and attract more qualified people who want to give back to society but can't at the rate you are pay8ing.
