I have been working at Goodwill part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great environment, other employees, the usual customers that come in, supporting the "mission", friendly.

Cons

Hardly any appreciation from the upper level staff or senior regional staff. Regional decisions seem to negatively affect the store rather than helping or improving it. Not much growth and the work is hardly stimulating. It's more for those in the "in between" of life, whether it's high school, college, or beyond, that aren't looking for any particular motivation to move up within the company.

Advice to Management

Listen to employees needs and suggestions. Find a way where employees aren't reprimanded for voicing opinions about the company or its management staff.

    I have been working at Goodwill full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is financially stable and hasn't laid anybody off. The culture of the company is friendly but you do have to be productive.

    Cons

    The pay is a bit on the low side. The work is strenuous. There is a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    If you would raise the base pay a little bit fewer people would leave the company.
