    SSVF Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goodwill (Oklahoma City, OK).

    Interview

    Was very laid back. The questions weren't too hard, but I fumbled over a lot. It was a panel interview which was very intimidating. Interview room was very tiny and the office was a little messy. The only lady in the room made me feel better through the whole interview.

    Donation Attendant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goodwill (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I had a pulse, so they offered me a job. Goodwill terminated employees on a routine basis due to their unrealistic production goals, so they are always hiring. You can easily get a job here, but you won't get to keep it.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodwill (Saginaw, MI) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Multiple questions on Goodwill background. Laid back interview but relatively tough questions if you did not review background of company. Asked more than the typical interview questions but still did the common ones. Overall, good experience with an accepted job offer with higher pay and title than original salary.

    Lead Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chattanooga, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Goodwill (Chattanooga, TN).

    Interview

    Interview process was easy. Interviewed with two people and basic questions. Got call later that day with an offer. At the interview I was told they have certain benefits and that the salary was between two numbers. Also asked them about reviews and raises. When they offered the position to me, the offer was lower than what they said in interview. After I had the position, found out that they didn't have some of the benefits that were important to me which was different than what was told to me in the interview. Also, they haven't had raises for years, so I was lied to in the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your background? They don't ask too many questions, just tell you about what they are looking for. Caution, they don't tell you everything.   Answer Question
