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

    Pros

    stands behind mission to help community, everybody very friendly,

    Cons

    long hours, stores are filthy- people running goodwill think just because it's a thrift store they don't have to be clean (?), no set schedule, poor hiring and not being honest in interviewing (see below) leads to high turn-over, all stores run however the mgr feels- no price structure- made customers upset and confused

    Advice to Management

    Be honest during interviewing. I was told no overtime expected and bonuses were "practically guaranteed". Nothing could be farther from the truth. I never worked less than 46 hrs (for same pay) and NEVER saw a bonus in 6 months. And when you try to take off on a company holiday, you are frowned upon for not working those additional hours too

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

    Pros

    One only things good about working for Goodwill in Austin is the people who work with you. I left GWICT with some friends for life. The benefits were good as well.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. It is almost slave labor and no matter what they tell you, there are millions of barriers to employment. Their motto is a complete scam. After working my butt off for 2 years......I wouldn't even do community service there if you paid me. All of the managers they hire don't have a clue what it is to have compassion for your employees.

    Advice to Management

    Yall need to take a few of those classes you offer to your regular employees and have a few of the prople that sit on their butts all day making 20.00 per hour at corp....come to the stores and see what we do for 8.00 per hour. It makes me sick
