Production & Retail Team Lead (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – May 1, 2017
I loved working for GW but regionals are not to great they do not do thorough investigations on certain things. I learned great communication skills and patience working there. I love how they are different cultures there.
Cashier, Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – March 17, 2018
On a typical day at goodwill industries I would stock shelves, maintain store appearance, and ring people up at the cash register. I would also assist customers with questions and help them locate items and count the til at the end of the day.
Cahier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Seneca, SC – March 17, 2018
The management there was ridiculously overbearing causing unnecessarily amounts of stress for the job. If they wee to be less pressuring about trying to mark up the prices of everything to almost idiotic highs of prices it would be a lot better.

Sales Associate and Cashier (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – March 16, 2018
For the size of the store and how many customers There should be a lot more employees.. work load is huge and never finished no matter how hard you try.. You constantly feel defeated , And you have management over your shoulder reminding you what you're doing is not good enough! If you know how to read and write go anywhere else!!!
Lead Processor (Former Employee) – Fairfield, CA – March 16, 2018
A typical day at my work would be taking pictures and posting Items online. To make or quota we would have to post 42 plus Items a day. What I have learned while working here Is that this place is fast pace with a lot of gossiping going on here. It would be nice if they paid more than just minimum wage.
This is a great opportunities for the disabled and for those who show initiative to move forward in the work field. It gives the workers an opportunity for references and help for whatever needed to become successful in the work force. It is also a great place to learn new people skills, as well as communications with co-workers. They also teach how to create a legal Resume and Business Management. The opportunities are there for all who may be in need.
Plenty of help; Obtain Resumes; Receive Money Management Classes
Get Overwhelmed at times; It's not for those who may only interested in a handout.
A good starter job , not meant to stay in forever , unless you move up the ladder .
Donation Attendant (Current Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – March 16, 2018
Overall, goodwill itself isn’t a bad company to work at , they pay well and if you have the correct managers , they will try and help you move up the ladder , if it’s something you want . I’ve been here for 2 years and I’m grateful but , it’s time to move on.
They start at $10.00 hourly, and if you’re full time you’ll have paid time off .
Customer Service Associate/housekeeping (Former Employee) – Oakwood, GA – March 16, 2018
i got my job through a job outreach program. they trained me and told everything i needed to know very clearly. after the outreach program reached its end, they hired me full time. the management was always very help and they were not afraid to get their hands dirty. they were firm but fair.

Goodwill is a friendly place to work always got along with coworkers and managent which in both cases were great people to be around Never under too much stress or pressure worked in same store entire time and we were like family.
