    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goodwill (Madison, WI) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online; received invite for 15-minute phone interview; scheduled for in-person interview; given verbal job offer and told background check would take a few days. Two weeks later and I've heard nothing, which is rude but seems somewhat normal nowadays. Not worth waiting around for, esp. for the kind of pay offered.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goodwill (Tacoma, WA) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Over the phone interview with the direct team leader of interest. An offer was made, only then did I discover that the position was full-time admining for 4 team leaders with 4 separate departments as opposed to admining for one overseer as described. The offered salary was not worth the effort that would be required of the position, once the full scope had been revealed after designing the job posting as intra-office and as one position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goodwill (Appleton, WI) in December 2019.

    Interview

    This was a great process. It started with a phone interview, and they gave more details on the position and asked me questions about my experience and relevant experience to the role. I was then invited for an in-person interview that consisted of 4 interviewers (after a tour of the building), where they asked more elaborate questions about my relevant experience and ways that I handle conflict/tasks at work. It was a great interview and everyone was extremely friendly and I felt that I fit in with the team immediately. Later that day, they called and sent me a background check to complete, and then the next business day I was offered the position officially. It was a great experience and I look forward to starting my new position.
