Not as much fun as it used to be but the people are very caring.
Financial Specialist (Former Employee), Columbus, OHJuly 30, 2014
Pros: most of the employees are fun to work with.
Cons: healthcare
A typical day at work was coding invoices for payment, entering them in to Great Plains, sending them out for approval, creating batches to be approved for payment and printing and mailing checks to vendors.

The majority of my co-workers are hardworking and fun to work with.

The hardest part of the job was closing for month end.

I would say that – more... the most enjoyable part of this job is knowing that what I do is a part in helping people with disabilities and other barriers. – less

fast pace and fun
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), Columbus, OhioSeptember 11, 2013
Pros: get breaks and lunches, fun customer interactions, weekly auctions
Cons: in the retail dept. you cannot buy anything from the store you work, old fashioned accounting i.e. punch cards, accounting dept makes a lot of mistakes when it comes to your paycheck
great home time
PTO accrues quickly
paid holidays
nothing is overly difficult
im full time so I always get a steady paycheck but part-timers hours vary greatly- you could work 34 hours one week and 8 the next

my overall summary about Goodwill Columbus, Inc.
ADC Attendent (Former Employee), Columbus, OHAugust 2, 2013
I had no issues with this company, only that they need to be more patient with their employees, especially the ones who they hire who have disabilities.

low pay and bad working conditions
retail (Former Employee), morse Rd columbus ohioOctober 18, 2012
Pros: discount on clothing
Cons: bad work condisionsi in back
managment is poor and the working conditions are poor. They provide you with no dust masks from the sometimes nasty clothing that comes in. They really don't respect the disabaled at all they expect them to do the same normal people do. Thats unfair !!!!!!!!!.

Pros: i could work as much as i was available.
Cons: none-goodwill is a wonderful place to work. highly recommended
Working in Supportive Living had been the most rewarding opportunity to serve people with disabilities. It allowed me to meet wonderful people both staff and clients. Giving the best of my abilities granted me trust, respect and admiration for everyone that enriched my life. I learned patience and endurance along with the unconditional love that holds – more... dear in the hearts of those that I served. The most enjoyable part of the day was showing up and being greeted with the smiles of my clients. They are so grateful, loving and kind. – less
