Great Company for Finding a Direction
Human Services (Current Employee) –  Bridgeport, CTAugust 6, 2018
The career opportunities at Goodwill truly help employees gain the skills they need to find and understand their career paths. It's an excellent place to build up your resume and experience a professional work environment. Additionally, management encourages career growth and works with you to determine your next steps. However, like most companies, growth takes time and requires an individual to be work hard and be patient. Overall, the experience you have is what you put into it. Highly recommend for an entry into the Human Services and Retail fields.
Pros
Resume Building, Growth Opportunities, Mission Focused
Cons
Lower Salary

It’s trash
Retail Associate (Former Employee) –  Bridgeport, CTJune 27, 2018
Management sucked. The manager is a rude, bitter person who will disrespect you in front of everybody. The work is way too much for minimum wage. Managers show favoritism and co workers barely work. If you need a job, this should be your last choice

Helping others
ILST-Counselor (Former Employee) –  Bridgeport, CT 06605June 21, 2018
You arrive at the home of the consumer your working with and read the log book to see how the previous shift went. You check the calendar for appointments, if none plan an activity such as going to the park. Then come home and prepare dinner and give out pm medications.
Pros
Rewarding to be helping others
Cons
Can be challenging emotionally at times
