Nepotism, Mismanagement, Negative Culture San Diego Goodwill
employee (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 9, 2018
Currently an employee of San Diego Goodwill Industries. I cannot say what location or what my position is for fear of retribution against me.
But let's be clear, look elsewhere to work.
Management lacks any real knowledge or experience. They don't follow policy but expect the employees to follow policy to the letter.
A manager at one location, who has some serious clout with the upper ranks was allowed to hire one of his friends to be a supervisor. Hence you get an idea of the culture.
If you have any serious breakdown, mentally or physically from the constant bombardment of stress, you will need to provide proof from your doctor to have restrictions.
The business model they follow is medieval and outdated, but they believe in it as it allows them to exert power over the underlings.
If the managers say they are doing their jobs for the "mission" or believe in the "mission", consider holding back your faith in them.
The "mission" of giving people jobs is but a ploy to bulk up their ranks with minimum wage earners to crank out that profit margin.
They encourage all employees to report anything on anyone, posters on the walls encourage this culture, you may surprisingly become a target for whatever reason they deem.
