    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.
