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

    Pros

    Typically full time employment, hire people with mental disabilities

    Cons

    Pay was $8.00/hr. which is ironic considering their mission of "helping people get employed," seeing as no one can live on that wage. I was in college at the time, and requested only part-time employment several times, and ended up having to quit because no one would change my schedule despite my DAILY insistence.

    All you need to learn how to apply for a job is online, go to a library if you don't have a computer. Besides, helping someone find a job only works if there are jobs out there. Shop at the DAV, their cause actually makes sense, although I probably wouldn't recommend working there either because of the pay.

    Advice to Management

    Make your mission focus on giving the employees you have one of the most competitive pays in the market instead of working towards throwing people into the same machine which makes them homeless/in debt.
