"Goodwill does amazing things for the community. As with any company there are better executives than other, better employees than others. But most everyone there has a heart for what they do. I worked for the Goodwill of Middle TN. They definitely had a heart for their community. Matt Glostner is a higher up in the company and has the biggest heart out of anyone I have ever worked with."

"Goodwill Industries provided me with every training opportunity I could have wished for when starting out a new job. This made the transition into the job smooth and easy, and helped lead me to a successful time there. Both the management and co-workers of this location were some of the most friendly and helpful that I have ever had, and made it sad to leave when it was time."

"I have been with this employer for sometime now and have watched it go on a downward spiral the last year. Company is terminating high salary managers and assistant managers. Because of a new VP company, which is non-profit, is now over 8M in debt."

"I’ve worked for goodwill about a year now. And supervisors just aren’t good with working with others. Though the pay is okay, when it comes to personal matters; such as family deaths they do not work with you regarding your grievance."

"I only worked for Goodwill Industries for six months, but they were a great company to work for as a software engineer. They never overworked us, and were all too aware of the seriousness of burnout and the high turnover rate in our field, and took great pains to keep us sane and happy. I would love to work for them again in the future."
