    I have been working at Goodwill full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    To be clear, this is specifically for Goodwill Manasota:

    Employees are a number 1 priority, always. They are willing to invest in employees to further their education, and they aren't afraid to help employees branch out even if it means them moving to another company.

    Cons

    Communication could be better, but it's still better than most places I've been.
