Good pay to get ahead in life, bad and careless management.
Cons: Way too short breaks, ignoring any customer service, proud disrespect and exploitation of their associates, lack of personal and professional growth.
I worked at Goodwill Industries of NNE for five years and only felt disrespected in the last two years of my career. No room to grow; If you want to challenge and/or better your life and gain life skills by working here and at another job, run. Run for cover as fast as you can. Way too much tasks are placed on associates and little is ever shown from higher management that they appreciate it. In fact, the appreciation that is shown is to add more tasks to your already impossible production demands. I have never seen a retail store openly ignore their customers because they place so much of their production demands on associates, yet on their employment requirements they emphasize that customer focus is a must. If you rely on customer interactions to be a part of your career, keep looking. That will never happen here, and any and all in-store and executive managers really don't care to change that. And I have never seen so much butt-kissing in one place to make sure you get just a tiny bit of something. Only if your kissing butt so much will you ever gain anything that even relates to a managerial role within the company. My lips will never ever be hurting again, and I LOVE setting this bridge ablaze.
