    I have been working at Goodwill part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits after six months but you have to fight for them and you might get your hours cut back to prevent you from your eligibility.

    Cons

    Management's main concern is profit and every employee knows it. Lots of politics and backbiting and closed-door stuff. Sadly there is a snitch system and if you say something negative about a supervisor or manager they will get told. If you work there adjust to low pay, keep your mouth shut, and keep your eyes open for other opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Supervise your supervisors and listen when a lot of employees make the same complaints about the same supervisors. Smoke usually means fire.
