Mission: Goodwill of Silicon Valley’s mission is to support our employees, our customers and people with challenging barriers to employment; to raise their standard of living and improve their lives through our services and social enterprise.
I have been working at Goodwill full-time (More than a year)
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.
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.
I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Goodwill (Colorado Springs, CO).
I got an interview threedays after applying online. There were two people conducting it. It went great and received an offer hours later. Starred training a few days after. Training was for an entire day and not too bad
