Horrible place to work
Business Service Representative (Former Employee), Newhall, CAMarch 16, 2015
they work you and there is a certain culture they focus on hiring. Not very professional. Dont bother working here, its all a front on how they try to help those with disabilities, they work them for less than minimum wage and they work their entry level employees as well.

Good place to work at if only the pay was more rewarding.
Career Resource Specialist (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CANovember 6, 2014
Pros: your allowed to learn new things, get trained and help others.
Cons: not enough pay for those of us who are not entry level.
Day to Day activities are different working here.There is always something new to learn, my supervisors are great, a good mix of people working here but we all seem to get along well. The most enjoyable part is knowing that you have done something today to help others empower themselves.

"Goodwill to those with "Special needs", but "You don't matter if you don't!
Food Services (Current Employee), Los AngelesJuly 25, 2014
Pros: good benefits.
Cons: from my obesservations, and experience...no organization, ownership, and a boat load of contradiction.
This is my first experience with Goodwill, in any form. As a new employee for this company, and/or non profit organization...I have to say with all honesty...WWWOOOWWW!!! Logically ...anyone, or company would research the Industry in which they choose to try and penetrate,and/or be part of, but not Goodwill. You would think the company that hired a professional Consultant in the Industry that they would like to penetrate, would at least consider the advice, and/or experience that they are paying for, but not Goodwill." If you have no disabilities and are thinking of applying to Goodwill..I advise you to reconsider for your own good, and wish you good luck if you do except any position with this company. It seems their true motto seems to be...."Goodwill to those with Special needs, but You don't matter if you don't."

Valuable Internship
Clerical Assistant (Former Employee), Pomona, CAMay 29, 2014
Pros: great people to work with, constant development in the field, free lunch every now and then.
Cons: no positions available for interns, interns are extremely restricted to what they can work on.
The workplace was amazing i was able to learn what each individual liked so that way i already knew how to handle things when working there. I had an issue with separation between co- workers, But other than that everything else went just fine. Management was enjoyable to a certain extent. I really enjoyed working there because i enjoyed the type of work given. I just wish that the internship was more organized and that they had things cleared with district on what was allowed for interns to learn hands on and what wasnt instead of "playing it by ear" and if the internship was intern to hire position.
