I have been working at Goodwill full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The job is very easy, monotonous and can be done half-asleep. Even at the management level.

Cons

There are more politics and backbiting in this company than any other I have ever worked for. The best way to move up in the company is to make inside friends and to buy bribe or cheat your way to the top. I've worked for this company for five years in nine different stores in two different states and have seen it in every location.

Advice to Management

Create stricter policies to reprimand those that abuse the system

    I worked at Goodwill full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The satisfaction gained from helping disadvantaged people obtain employment.

    Cons

    The work environment was atrocious and we were limited in the help we were able to provide participants of the program.

    Advice to Management

    Provide therapists for the participants. Cut down on the level of gossip, backstabbing, and club-feel of the company.

    I have been working at Goodwill part-time

    Pros

    Great people and great work ethics

    Cons

    Lack of care for the workers.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to care about those who work for you, and less time caring about how many new goods you can fit in a store.
