Changes in hours randomly. Management was critical of employees on a daily basic, working employees with minimal training. Work-place culture was diverse. The hardest part of the job was constant change in productivity requirements and management people skills.
Engaging with customers, providing great customer service. Enjoy working with a diverse

I enjoy the mission of this company and participating in an enterprise that is making the world a better place and positively influencing the sustainability of our resources. Goodwill inspires me to consider the importance of performance, work ethics, and integrity through their mission.

Working in the backroom, you're working the entire shift. You get to sort through merchandise and choose what can be sold based on expectations. You get to choose the price of merchandise, based on brand and quality. Working on the sales floor, you're putting away merchandise, merchandising the items, and helping customers. Management is extremely flexible, doesn't treat you as "replaceable", and works on the line or floor with you when needed.
This is not a good place to be employed! Too many Chiefs not enough Indians. A major lack have commitment, direction, and general respect runs deep!

I thought at first Goodwill would be a good job. As I started to settle in I realized otherwise. A very inefficient and disrespectful place to be. There are Maybe three people in all I've met working at Goodwill that I think was honest with me. I strongly advise for whoever reads this to look for employment elsewhere! No joke seriously! Not a good place for advancement. If you have any plans on climbing the ladder think again. Take it from me it is really better to look elsewhere for work!

Good college job, did not have enough hours. Some unprofessional managers. Worked there over a year and when they changed their minimum wage, My pay didn't change at all, so I was making as much as someone just starting.

Try and meet our goals each day. management is helpful most of the time sometimes they change what we do in processing without telling us till we do it one way or no exploitation as to why or say the other mangers are wrong in how they taught us. Hardest part is getting our goal done when we don't have the materials or people each day. Coworkers are fun to talk to and make it more enjoyable to be there
Working at Goodwill Industries taught me how to cope with working in a fast paced work environment.

You had to watch your footing when you walked around in the store. You would have to constantly stay on your toes or be yelled at if you don't move fast enough. It really isn't a great place for people to work if they have disabilities.
