All this company cares about is upper management making money
sales associate 2 (Former Employee) –  TennesseeNovember 20, 2015
I liked my Co workers although some will stab you in the back first chance they get but all in all they don't care about any of their employees all upper management cares about is making money they need to fire all them and hire caring people bet they live in million dollar homes don't donate to this place they mark everything up so much the average person can't afford to shop there anymore.
Pros
Other employees
Cons
Long hours very low. Pay no raises have to beg for 1 then always a freeze on them

Awful.
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNJuly 6, 2015
The only thing this company cares about is its bottom line. Virtually none of the missions programs they used to pride themselves on exist anymore, but they continue to run the commercials on local television that boast about those programs. It's a lot of smoke and mirrors with this company and the people who run it. If you work here you will be set up to fail.
Pros
None.
Cons
Low morale, high turnover, managers who don't care or manage their people

management has no clue
warehouse (Former Employee) –  chattanoogaMarch 12, 2015
management has no clue
too political environment for new hires to begin a career
good people--just set in their ways and do what where and when they want.--not a good atmosphere to bring new people into!
Cons
where do we start?

Processor (Former Employee) –  Dayton, TNNovember 12, 2013
I loved the atmosphere, super laid back and we all got along really well (not including management). The best part of my job was knowing that Goodwill helps those in need every day.
