No opinion of CEO

I worked at Goodwill part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Autonomy - sort of; easy job

Cons

constant supervision; second-guessed my mgmt; treated like criminally-minded children

Advice to Management

Just because you hire people with records does not mean all of your employees are criminals. Your level of distrust in your employees is unfortunate. Instead of rewarding your hardworking, long-term employees with a raise or bonus, you spend several thousand dollars on a faulty surveillance system. All Hail Big Brother.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    If you enjoy helping people and don't mind getting dirty

    Cons

    To cooperate office an employee is just a name. No one will notice if or when you go above and beyond. If you find $ in a donation, put it in your pocket. If you turn it in you will not get any of it and no one will ever say.. thanks for doing your job, we appreciate you. NEVER!!!

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Goodwill full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    My current manager is spectacular to work for.

    Cons

    Many in the company have forgotten that we are here for the community.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas. Just because that's not how you used to do things doesn't mean it's how they should continue.
