Pros: staff meetings, available office space for case notes, laptop issued

Goodwill is a great place to work because of the wonderful program participants. The staff is friendly and helpful. This is a good job for people that are passionate about disabilities and making a difference in people's lives. The most prominent problem is the large amount of driving in your personal vehicle.
