    Database Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodwill (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Very detailed. They wanted to know everything about me before I could even get a phone interview. A copy of my driver's license and my full social security number. I had to fill out many electronic documents and email them back. I have never had to give so much information before even getting a phone interview.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albuquerque, NM
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodwill (Albuquerque, NM) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Went into the break room with the manager and he told me to read the responsibilities of the job. After that he read interview questions off a paper. Told me I would be great in customer service but needed to talk to his district manager since I'm a full time college student and Goodwill only hires full time as well. I declined the offer since I couldn't be able to handle full time thinking it was a part time position.

    Employment Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woodstock, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodwill (Woodstock, GA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The Internal Talent Acquisitions Specialist of North Atlanta is very unprofessional. When she called me initially to inquire more about my interest of the position, she was doing a lot of self talk while her computer stalling, and she was rude. She did not have a professional verbal communication, and also did not know any information about the position itself. I actually declined coming in for an interview just based on her because of her bad attitude and felt she is a negative reflection of the company; I didn't want to get involved with that type of mentality.

    Reasons for Declining

    unprofessional Internal Talent Acquisitions Specialist of North Atlanta and she left a bad taste in my mouth
