    Team Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goodwill (Sacramento, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and got called in for an interview a week later. Manager was pretty nice but they seemed kind of unorganized since people keep going in and out during the interview. She talked to me for about 10 mins and read a bunch of questions off of a list. The questions were about my past experiences and how I had or would handle certain situations.
