    Pros

    Team based environment with great leadership. Higher level management really cares about employees skills based learning and well being. Family friendly employer is a bonus too.

    Cons

    Due to the companies nonprofit status, funding is limited and fincial constraints tend to make forward progress move slowly.

    Pros

    Fun to see all the cool stuff people donate. Good pay $10 hr so better than most jobs

    Cons

    Retail hours so weekends are a must. Got to wirk in cold and hot weather

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything depends on making sales so don't really think it's about being nonprofit

    Pros

    A very good mission. A company designed to help people who struggle. Many different departments and ways to get involved.

    Cons

    Unorganized and low budget. No one is paid what their worth. Non profit should not mean substandard hours and salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase your mission to help those who work for you also.

    Pros

    Goodwill has a great mission, helping individuals find jobs in the community. There is a motivated and knowledgeable staff that provides quality programming and services to all participants.

    Cons

    They do not pay enough in relation to responsibilities that are bestowed upon the employees. In a nutshell, overwork and underpay.
