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

    Pros

    You are guaranteed 40 hours of work each week. The pay is biweekly. I started at $8.50 per hour. You are given an hour lunch break. As a floor associate you are responsible for placing the clothes onto racks as well as removing them from racks. You operate the cash registers and make daily announcements to the customers. The hardest part of this position would be rushing to get a certain amount of clothing and items onto the sales floor within a given time.

    Cons

    Most employees rarely leave before evening. Work hours vary and could range from 8-5 to 12-9. The job can become monotonous after a while. Meetings are held to track progress and to tell employees whether or not they reached a sales goal. It can be frustrating when there is a problem with reaching the sales goal but the employees have done all that they can.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to keep a professional relationship, rather than personal relationships with employees. Expect realistic amounts of work and success from workers. Acknowledge the good that is done by employees. Help out more.

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

    Pros

    You help the community. Very spirited onboarding. Not much else to offer.

    Cons

    Low pay for invested time. No room for advancement. Plenty of Lifers. Money Money Money is the word.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management is disconnected from the mid management and employees. Big dreams are built on the backs of the hopeless and disposable.
