I worked at Goodwill as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Everyone was helpful and kind
Executives and managers were very available
Not too stressful at all

Cons

Extremely poor management
Environment was okay
Low wages

Advice to Management

The environment is sometimes TOO laid back and rules aren't being enforced. Employees would a lot of times not show up to work and they would have too many get away cards. This doesn't promote efficiency, positive work environment, and morale is low. Also, Goodwill needs to stop hiring managers that are not ready to take that role.

    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.
