Fun place to work. Employees are mostly characters.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Sarasota, FL – August 16, 2018
I was a cashier. We were the third busiest Goodwill in America so we worked hard to get those customers rung up and out. The managers were the worst I've ever had. They do near nothing and especially when we were slammed and needed them to jump on a register they both were hesitant to or diliberately got lost somewhere.
Working with characters. Humorous recovered addicts and criminals.
Must work 40 hours a week unless you have some autistic like disability. No part time.

I enjoyed my time working at Goodwill as a cashier. Talking with customers and getting to know the ones who visited us often was my favorite part of the day. I knew many of our customers by name and still talk to a few of them even after leaving the company. Ours was a smaller store, so we often only had one manager and one cashier to close the store at night. It could sometimes be stressful but not any worse than any other retail job.

I like workimg st Goodwill because you get to know your daily customers, you get to know your teammates and you grow as a family. Also, the managers will understand if you cannot make it to work and also will work woth your sche

I loved my job at the Goodwill but after working there for 3 years, I had never received a raise and my benefits were slowly cut. I probably made more money beginning my career there till when I ended it. I had to quit for there was no progression.

There is team work, we clean and help with customers. Most management is friendly. They only post the schedule a week out which really sucks, my schedule changes all the time so I can't make any plans.
A fun job with great people but in no way a wise career choice.

This job is perfect for young kids alot of fun and you make great friends, However it seriously lacks as most retail jobs do in wages. This is NOT a livable wage. However if your looking for some extra cash and a fun job this is your answer.

I didn't mind working here, but they are very corporate despite how they try to portray themselves and there is really no way to get a good paycheck here or a raise. However, the day to day staff is always really good and it can be a fun place to work.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Oberlin, OH – July 30, 2018
A typical day at work was very long, boring, mean customers I have learned from this job to keep to myself The management played favorites, were doing sketchy book work, talked down to the employees and gossiped about everyone. The workplace is very dull and drowns your energy as soon as you walk in the door. The hardest part of the job was working with grumpy irritable people. The most enjoyable part of the job was clocking out and leaving.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – July 29, 2018
Working here requires/ involves: Multi tasking, customer service,physically demanding and being able to cope with a schedule involving having to work 2 or more different shifts per week and often days off that are not back to back, but are spaced days apart. It is a great place to work if you have not had a job, or have been out of the workforce for some time, or are new to the country. They will provide training for you. But unless moving up in management here is your goal, I do not recommend staying here for longer than a year or so. It is really a great way to get your foot in the door if you have little or no experience working or working in retail.
I'm pretty sure the CEO is crooked but it helped me out
Cashier (Former Employee) – Blue Springs, MO – July 28, 2018
I'm pretty sure the CEO is crooked but it helped me out of a pretty bad place at the time. I had no job, and no aspirations, and really nowhere else to be. Goodwill provided that when I was low and I have been thankful for that. I am quite bothered by how much money seems to flow into the pockets of the higher ups of the company. Or if it does not go to them than it is certainly not apparent where else it is going.
