    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Goodwill (Leander, TX) in August 2013.

    Interview

    It was pretty straight forward and completed by the manager of the store and a witness manager. He was a pretty straightforward and fair guy. He asked questions like specify a time when you provided excellent customer service, what are your goals, why do want to work here, why should I hire you -- it was pretty basic and didn't last longer than an hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodwill (Mount Pleasant, MI) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Awful. Simply awful. Firstly, I was called about the interview and arrived on time. They didn't specify where to go, so I asked some employees. None of them knew, but a sweet older woman went back to ask for me. She said they would page me when I could go in, and that I can feel free- get this- to SHOP while I wait. I was mortified, so I just stood around pretending to look at merchandise. While I waited I overheard an employee loudly saying to another employee that there was an opening and they already knew that they were going to hire her friend, but they had to interview a certain amount of applicants according to the company. At that point I almost cried, I was so embarrassed. I should have left, but I stuck it out like a trooper.

    About a half hour later they paged me back, and it got WORSE. I sat back there while two younger adults slumped in their seats laughing and teasing each other. They ignored me for a good long while until they finally kind of looked at me and told me "You'll do a lot of laundry. Do you like doing laundry?" I said that I didn't mind it. They said "Well, it's really gross." Then we just kind of sat there for a while. Eventually the girl looked at the guy and said, "Well, I guess that's it," and then he said, "Drama." Then she looked at me and asked me how I feel about drama. I said that I don't think it belongs in the workplace. They dismissed me and told me they would call. They never did, but I didn't expect them too. I also would have turned the job down.
