Cashier/Pricer (Former Employee), Texas City, TX – April 21, 2014
Pros: health, life, vision, dental (insurance)
Cons: no requested days off around holidays.
*A typical day of work consist of extreem hustle and bussle. There was never a steady flow. It was always sink or swim. *I learned a few management skills, how to price items, and better customer service skills. *Management for the company, in all honesty didnt know their place. Most of them acted as if they were just an employee and most of the time – more... was not mature with their position. *Co-Workers were alright, but in a sense not so much because they constantly fished for information about people they had no business knowing. Basically they couldnt mind their own business and leave home life at home. (Mixing work and home life together) *The hardest part of the job, was never catching a break. We were always so busy and in constant motion. *The most enjoyable part of this job, was that all of the customers were regulars. And developed a friendship with them, enjoyed talking with them daily and seeing their faces just brightened up my day. – less
Pros: a company that truly cares about it's employees, benefits
Cons: varied work hours
Goodwill is a wonderful company to work for. One that truly cares about it's employees. We get to help people who are in need of a helping hand every day. Customers that are in hard financial times are able to get clothing and everyday items inexpensively. The company strives to employ people who are looking to turn their lives around and get back on – more... their feet. The varied work hours can make work difficult sometimes, but knowing we help the people in our store every day makes up for it by far. – less
