"It has been a great learning experience. I had positive relationships with everyone, however, better teamwork and collaborative work ethic should be attained. Growth opportunities may be limited for the corporate office."

"To be frank, there are actually two company cultures at Goodwill; one for the retail side, and one for the corporate, or "mission" side. So, I'll preface this review by stressing that I've been engaged in the corporate side of Goodwill, so I can't speak with experience about the retail environment. To be expected, salaries are lower than they would be outside of a non-profit--this also means pretty weak health benefits. There was an overly-long time-lapse in hiring a new CEO, which has resulted in not-so-hot leadership. The company is very siloed, which is a shame because the employees within Goodwill are great people and a joy to work with on a daily basis. It's a great place if you're looking for terrific people to be in the trenches with--and a bad place if you're looking for career development, mentoring, or strong leadership."

"Not an honest company to work with. Ongoing thievery of donated goods is not dealt with by managers. They're dishonest with employees about overtime time cut out. Any person there any time could see most profit goes to corp office as there income is available to find. Good nonprofit as they say to stay away from working or see donation profits line pockets very few"

"Do not work here. The job may seem fun exciting and interesting. All the fun things you can see and all the good prices. The pros are slim but here they are. 20% discount. Flexible schedule. Now the cons. -Minimum wage (no raises ever), the only way to receive a pay increase is by promoting up. Which is not much more money, the most known was a 1.00-2.00 pay increase. But could be more the higher up you get, which is not a simple goal to manage with this company. -You must wear a uniform shirt that you must purchase from the company. Costing anywhere from 7-12.00 a shirt! You can use them as a tax right-off but depending per state some places you cannot. - Anyone under supervisor level does not get full time. -They will schedule you minutes from being full time. Watch your time worked! If you for a reason miss a punch they will not pay you. If you worked in between locations they have been known not to pay for time worked at a location. -The jobs from front to back are unhealthy and unsafe! Many workers come into contact with materials from chemicals to bodily fluids daily with no proper training or safety gear to handle materials. Some items are infested with bugs from roaches to bed bugs but the company ignores any reports. -The company will limit supplies to a very minimal amount, leaving it difficult to complete some aspects of the job. When this happens the company will then write up or terminate anyone who didn't complete their job, regardless of the lack of materials and supplies needed. -The managers talk about employees to all other staff. No one's business, no matter how personal is any secret! -The managers are very unprofessional! They have ethical dysfunctions and when these managers are reported the company will not fire them, but move them along the chain in the company. Supporting work for bigots, thieves, racists, and so on. The list is so much longer. This company is a pocket lining business! They do not help anyone."

"Doesn't pay enough for what we put up with in the production room. New manager played favorites and gossiped too much. Ridiculous quotas to obtain, very dirty environment. Manager doesn't care if you are sick or have a family emergency to attend to. Got sick from sorting through dirty shoes and clothes all day. Never had a chance for advancement due to picking favorite employees. Felt stressed out from production manager and store manager."
