Great. Coming from a history of non profit retail, I understand that sometimes the job is more demanding than usual, but you get out of it what you put into it. When I first decided to take a job at Goodwill, I heard all the stigmas...it's low class, it's a scam, etc. People want to say that it's a 'greedy' company, but I have seen first-hand what it has done for people who could not otherwise get a job. Also, the career center is FREE. FOR ANYBODY. Your donations are helping the less fortunate. I wish more people would recognize this. I'm proud to say that the work I (and the company as a whole) do every day impacts the community in a positive way.
