I have been working at Goody's Family Clothing full-time for less than a year

ProsDiscount, Benefits, Work Environment, Extra pay for getting people to open a store card. The earliest I ever have to be at work is 9am, and the latest I ever have to be at work is 9pm. Its an awesome work schedule. 1hr lunch breaks.

ConsThere aren't very many cons. Like most retail environments you have to push credit card sales, you find what works best for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementI love my management team, everyone is very friendly where I work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Proswhen bob goodfriend owned the company, it was profitable and a great place to work. when the kmart gurus took over, within 3 years, the company folded

Consthe last 3 years of the company's existence was a roller coaster ride. they treated the dm's like crap, so in turn, the managers got the bullets. what had been built up by goodfriend for 50 years got shot to crap in 3 short years.

Advice to Senior Managementyou should have found some other company to run into the ground.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

One of my best work experiences!

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Lebanon, PA

I have been working at Goody's Family Clothing

Prosy's is a great place to work if you love fashion and assisting others on being more fashionable!All the staff, from the top to the bottom get along very well. Always fairness and respect in the workplace. Very good benefits, much better than I had expected.The company as an entire whole runs very smoothly.

ConsThere is not a lot of room for advancement and it takes a long time to do so. Raises do not come around too often. Hard to have a set schedule here. Hours may vary greatly from one week to the next which can make it difficult to make other plans and makes it hard to keep a budget.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be for them to continue being the great management team they are and Goody's will continue being a great place to work!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
