Enhancing my current abilities and learning new projects
Job Source Receptionist/Computer Monitor (Former Employee), Austin, TXJuly 22, 2013
Pros: healthcare; dental care
Cons: working overtime
My workdays would be medium-paced and would be filled with administrative projects throughout the day. I would be learning new projects as well. I work well with limited supervision;however, I like to speak to my supervisor about how a project is going or if there are any needs from my supervisor that they may need me to know. I enjoy being a team player – more... as well. Their experience or insight into a project would enhance my work as well. The hardest part of my job would be fast-paced deadlines. I work well with deadlines, but at a slower pace. The most enjoyable part of my job would be working diligently and meticulously to move a project to completion. – less

Fast paced and challenging job
Logistics Supervisor (Former Employee), Austin, TXSeptember 17, 2012
Pros: freedom to excel or fail, invested in employees.
Cons: uninvolved management, unwillingness to provide resources, negitive department infighting.
Due to the unpredictabilty of The Industry that Goodwill operates in the flow was very up and down through the year. Usually we were so busy that it was all you could do to keep up. I enjoyed the fast pace and chaos most of the time, there was never a dull moment. We found ourselves without the tools we needed to effectivly opperate at times, somehow – more... we always got the job the job done. This was the hardest part of the position.

I will miss the people more than anything. I always found my employees are the most rewarding part of management. I found that as a whole the company cares deeply about its employees and continually trains and teaches them. I would say that watching them grow and suceed was the most enjoyable part of the position. – less

Austin Goodwill Industries runs circles around the rest
e-Commerce Online Auction Lister (Former Employee), Austin, TXJuly 6, 2012
Pros: servant leadership philosphy, great benefits, education culture & plenty of opportunity to move up & build a career.
Goodwill Industries come under different area and regional umbrellas that follow different missions. Goodwill Industries of Central Texas goes above and beyond it's mission statement with innovative e-commerce and huge recycling operations. Goodwill in Austin is huge and has a strong community presence with job search centers, plenty of retail stores – more... throughout and partnerships with Dell and Workforce Solutions.
Having just relocated to Houston I'm shocked by how mom & pop Houston Goodwill is being run. The Houston board of directors, CEO and executive staff need to rethink their entire operation. Maybe go to Austin and learn how to run a seriously professional non profit organization with real community impact. – less

Fast paced friendly work community
Trainee (Former Employee), Austin, TXMay 2, 2012
Over the years I have learned that it is important to be a responsible employee by coming to work on time, discussing needs and issues related to the business with my supervisor, and work hard to complete job objectives in a respectful, responsible manner. I have experience working in a warehouse setting doing manual labor. I was required to lift and – more... organize large objects, sort recyclable materials, books, DVDS, CD’s and VHS tapes for future shipment and/or sales. I learned how to salvage TVS, radios and other electronics hardware so in order to recycle the copper material they contain. Another part of the recycling process required organizing luggage carefully onto pallets and bailing stuffed animals so that they could be transported to other facilities for re-sale. I also have extensive experience performing janitorial work. I have sanitized “clean rooms”, cleaned offices, conference rooms, and restrooms to ensure employee and customer satisfaction. – less
