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

Amazing workplace with supportive staff
Retail Associate (Current Employee) –  Oxford, CTJune 19, 2017
Every Goodwill location is different. However the location in which I have had the honor of working at is amazing. The management is good-hearted and kind and want to see their employees succeed. The staff is like a second family and we all work as a team and want to see the store do well. Although sometimes donations and sorting can be tough, having supportive coworkers makes going to work fun and exciting. I wouldn't trade my work experience at Goodwill for the world. Meeting all different types of people has helped me gain customer service skills and how to work with different types of customers. I'm grateful to have been able to work here.
Pros
Supportive coworkers, flexible hours

If you need a job, it is a job.
Retail Associate (Former Employee) –  Glastonbury, CTNovember 30, 2016
Work was tedious and poorly managed.
Reaching into a tub of clothes over and over hurts your back.
No one likes working there and it shows.
Minimum wage (or less, Goodwill exploits labor laws).
Minimal opportunity for advancement.
Pros
Get to look at donated things, discount
