ADC Attendant (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL 36617 – October 22, 2016
Typical day in the position I held: taking in dozens of people donations. Having lack of enough equipment to do job effectively. Co workers was ok when you had a decent person to work with. Advancement available. Raises available on work performance.
Cashier/ sales associate (Former Employee) – Gilbert, AZ – October 22, 2016
When working for goodwill I learned how to interact with customers and provide great customer service. I often had to help customers on the floor and help them find what they were looking for. Also I was a cashier and it was so much fun helping serve the customers. I got along great with everyone.
I think Goodwill is a very helpful company for the handicapped and for low-income individuals.

As a person who lives with an autism-spectrum disorder, I have had some difficulty finding and retaining a permanent job. However, Goodwill is doing excellent work at training me and finding a job placement for me. Furthermore, I love how dedicated Goodwill is at reaching out to help the handicapped and low-income individuals.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Blacksburg, VA – October 21, 2016
This place is very interesting. The days are always different. Never boring. Some days were really hard others were average. It was fun to see all the neat items that came in. Some of the workers were awesome some were drama queens. Always trying to get someone in trouble. Goodwill could keep good employees if they would weed out the bad ones.The place loses good employees all the time. They get tired of drama. Their employee turn around is really bad. They do not keep anyone long at all. They expect a lot and offer very little.
Fun, interesting, different everyday. plenty of time off
benefits are not good, do not tell the public the truth about donations.

Cashier (Former Employee) – Woodbury, MN – October 20, 2016
I think working for goodwill overall was a wonderful experience , I do think they could have work better at management. Some of the manger were not as organized and wasn't hiring enough people on the sales floor. I do say tho, that goodwill staff was always good at help each other out when ever needed and very welcoming.
