Ensure production is moving along at a high rate; spend as much time as possible myself with this in addition to the daily reporting and problem-solving issues. I have learned to respect all different kinds of people, and to communicate as effectively as I can with all the different styles and personalities required. I enjoy my co-workers, like to have fun, while working as hard as we can as a team. The hardest part of my job is meeting the production goals without enough hands.

Enjoyed working there and it was fun working for different offices never got bored. Learned a lot of new skills as well as being able to brush up on old skills and the company was very diverse. I guess the hardest part of the job would be leaving because you make a lot of new friends.
The commute was not very long, did not have to work weekends
Cashier (Former Employee) – La Mirada, CA – March 24, 2017
The company which holds a an exempt status as if aiding the community to employ people and support growth is mainly about the bottom line. The push on sales for the managers is crazy and the requirement of cashiers to ask everyone for a cash donations is downright incorrigible. The clothing prices increase every year and the company doesn't even have a program for homeless people to come and get clothes, shoes, warm blankets or towels. The essentials to live on the street without dying. Not the pretty picture portrayed in the commercials

Supervisor (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – March 23, 2017
As a supervisor, I managed crews up to 15 employees and store functions. Throughout a supervisor shift, opening the store, closing the store, store production, employee maintenance, and customer service is included each day. The best part of the job was taking a series of classes through Goodwill corp out of Portland on working with the disabled. The hardest part of the job was seeing that the actual stores rarely supported more than one minimum disabled individual in their workforce. I was supervising in three different stores while learning the true workings of Goodwill. The best part of the job is the great crews of employees and wide variety of customers. The most difficult part of working as a supervisor was the retail hours that were never consistent.
The people I worked with were great! Sometimes the customers can be a little hard to work with. If a customer complains on something they say you did even if it's not true they will take the customers side EVERYTIME!!

A typical day at Goodwill would be I come in and had to hang 550 clothes a day by 3:00 and most day one other person would help you. Then I would do purses or shoes.If some went in salvage I then would have to box them and label.Straighten up store also help take donations.
Made your own hours and felt good inside about yourself
Did everything an associate did except run register and no pay
Stock Clerk (Former Employee) – Great Lakes, IL – March 23, 2017
Very few opportunities for advancement unless you were in the click. If you were a retired E-7 or above and had no experience or qualifications for a particular management position you were hired over an E-6 with the experience and qualifications for that particular management position.
