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 – more... 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. – less

The unfortunate truth about Goodwill of Southern California.
Coaching Specialist (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAFebruary 2, 2013
Pros: working with the clients
Cons: administration, pay scale, treatment of staff.
I worked as a Coaching Specialist for a year and observed Goodwill mistreatment of its staff. I saw workers who had dedicated 10 plus years fired and tossed aside without even a goodbye. This all stems from Goodwill's "at will policy" which allows them the right to fire you with little to no cause. I also observed a back-stabbing mentality that I thought – more... only existed in County work and was shock to see it in a non-profit. I tried to keep focus on the mission which is to help disabled workers but that also was a let down. The management would treat our group as second class citizens making them just shred books for recycling and paying them less then minimum wage justified by a loophole in the labor law. Their are some good people that work there unfortunately they probably will be fired due to some cost cutting measure. This is the unfortunate truth about Goodwill. – less
