    Pros

    The pay and the work load. Even when super busy or small staffed the work is not difficult at all.

    Cons

    The rare communication among management. The cliques among management . Favoritism of certain employees from management. No company parties only potlucks that are supplied by everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and end the cliques.

    I have been working at Goodwill full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Starting pay recently increased.

    Cons

    This company seems to lack follow thru with many things. Eventually the inconsistency becomes extremely irritating. They do hire from within but it's who you know or who likes you that plays a huge part in that.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard work and put a little effort in to seeing for yourself who hard workers are.
