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

    Pros

    Casual work environment, stores close at 8:00pm everyday except Sunday close is 6:00pm. Our office allows one weekend off per month, work every other Sunday. Promises of more training and job placement services in the next three years.

    Cons

    Management is promising more opportunities to improve job skills through education within the next three years, I think this is too slow. The corp website has good information and advice, but employees are never shown this information in orientation.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to be more pro-active in cross training employees. Every employee needs to be aware and reminded of the help that is currently available for job search and skill enhancement instead of expecting the employee to research these opportunities by themselves.
