I worked at Goodwill

Pros

The people who worked there were very nice. Pay was acceptable.

Cons

I worked at the Willowbrook, IL, Goodwill store from when it opened last fall until recently.It was not a good job.

The managers seemed inexperienced. They criticized and embarassed people in fron of other workers. This is especially true of the general manager.There was little communication between the managers and sometimes it felt that we had 5 different managers with 5 different ideas on what we should do and how we should do it. There was no clear understanding of how we should do our job. There was a lot of pressure to make production goals that stressed people and caused low morale.

I wish this review could be better but it is what it is. Goodwill does good stuff for the community. I was disappointed that they don't treat their workers better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate.

    I have been working at Goodwill

    Pros

    The support that is given to individuals with disabilities is great. The staff works together to make a positive experience for those walking through the door

    Cons

    The communication level from the higher ups is lacking. The amount of negative staff trying to cause problems for others who just want to serve the customers is aweful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open the communication level to all staff. There seems to be secrets and side meetings and favoritism happening in the area. I would like better support from staff
