    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goodwill in September 2017.

    Interview

    Great first impression, the receptionist was professional, friendly and greeted me by name with a bright smile which put me at ease. I was interviewed by two seasoned employees who were both enthusiastic about the interview and very pleasant, speaking with them felt easy and comfortable. The building is very bright, clean and welcoming, parking is a breeze. The interview was relaxed and felt like a conversation instead of an interrogation.

    Grant Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodwill (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online. I was brought in to a panel interview with two people. This was such a strange interview. It seemed almost hateful, like one of the woman was mocking me? I don't know maybe they just didn't like my hair. No idea.

     I love your mission, but it seems like you have lost a donor.

    And then to tell me at the end, that they were going to have another 2 interviews which I thought was a bit much for a part time position. One of those included a skills test I believe.
