    I have been working at Goodwill full-time

    Pros

    Goodwill has excellent insurance, it is probably the single best thing about working there. They have everything from short and long term disability to dental and medical all for $22 a week.

    Cons

    Pay is not that great. Goodwill treats their employees as second class citizens with little regard for their well being. I work in transportation where employees are treated as theives and liars. Its truely amazing.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at yourself and ask why there is heavy turnover in particular areas. See if there is a common demoninater.

    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.
