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

Pros

The mission and the associates were the motivating factors for myself.

Cons

The more dedicated you are to their mission, and following corporate standards, the more likely you are to be fired. Investigations should not be finalized based on hearsay, or by people who are not going to gather all the facts. Use investigating tools.

Advice to Management

Find ways to keep the managers and regional managers from dismissing people who have followed corporate standards, and procedures.

    I have been working at Goodwill full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady paycheck is nice. Good benefits once you become elagible for them. Good feeling to be putting used stuff to good use.

    Cons

    Keep your mouth shut. If you say negetive stuff it will get back to the wrong people. At my last annual review (4th one) I got a really good review and then got an annual raise of thirty cents an hour. After taxes that might be a whole ten bucks take home a week. Seems the manager got fired before coming to work here for the way his employees got treated and is starting to do the same to some workers here. Do anything management don't like and you pay for it, with split-up days off and the worst schedules.

    Advice to Management

    I think treating employeesnicer would be good for the company and good for business. It would not hurt people to give a compelment once in a while.
