A typical day at work fast past,exciting, alot to accomplish in days working there. My co-workers were awesome, friendly,respectful etc. The hardest part of the job would be working in different climate change espically snow. I enjoy working with my co-workers. As far as management not fair to others as they say they are.

Awesome job. I would definitely do it again. Processing is the best thing. Just hanging out doing your thing and your doing your thing. If you haven't done anything like it I suggest it! It has it calming moments!! And you'll meet some awesome people!
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Shawnee, OK – January 18, 2017
Never seen a business with such great passion for the work that is being done. Everyone is amazing and polite, the music could use a refreshment but that wont be a bother when you're consumed with the great shopping and great people.
Working at these different employers was a experience in a way where you can learn a lot. As far as people, building a relationship, seeing and understanding, but overall it is life changing experience that is going to mold and shape to be a better person.
Family work environment with the belief of the Goodwill Mission
Store Associate (Current Employee) – Paragould, AR – January 17, 2017
I love working at Goodwill, we have a family type setting and personal concern for our fellow workers. Our true asset is our goal of servicing the community by Goodwill standards. Our store record is one of the highest in the state. I work in textiles. I presort, inspect, and hang donated clothing and getting it out onto sales floor. I have done this single job for almost 3 and 1/2 years because they have not found anyone else that do that job better than me. My manager and co workers are some of the best of the business. There is a combo of light hearted spirit mixed with the best teamwork I have ever experienced. Helping the customers is the best part of my job. Many of them do not understand that the store money is used to help person find jobs. It is the best place I ever worked
Relaxed but professional working conditions
Electrical and heating problems with the rented building
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Portland, MI – January 17, 2017
A typical work day is like running around like a headless chicken. Being a cashier is stressful, but you wont ever be bored. I have to take care of the clothes on the rack, take care of the wares carts, rotate the colors of the week, assist customers who have questions, take care of dressing rooms, put items back in their places, make sure the store remains functional and clean. Oh, and while i am doing all of this, i have to keep an eye on the cash registrar because i am not allowed to have a bell to notify me when someone is waiting to check out. But, on the plus side, my co-workers are all very nice and always give me advice. Depending on the manager, they can be nice and easy to talk to or really intimidating. The most enjoyable part of my job is, it gets me a paycheck every week and most customers don't make me want to go crazy.
like sorting stuff, at times work could be heavy and deadlines to get work done could be frustrating, but enjoyed it nonethe less, co-workers were for the most part fun to be around, as I mentioned earlier meeting deadlines could be frustrating, but the enjoyable part would learning to do new jobs
