The word Goodwill outside and inside of the company is not all about them. They do give people work if they have a disability, but if the disability is not physical they don't believe you.
Support from management
Someone will constantly have a problem with Junior management, but if you go to a Store manager you can't even get help from them about a problem.
They have no idea what the word teamwork even means. They allow people to go about doing their jobs without assisting with the people who actually need help.
Freedom to work independently
They will always be looking over your shoulder. They don't trust you to do your job correctly.
If there is a complaint about a manager you have to physically go up to headquarters and speak with someone in Human Resources.
Guys do guys work and women to women work.
Attitude towards older colleagues
If you have had the job for over 5 years then you definitely get respect for when you work there.
They do allow you to go on to being a manager.
Overall compensation for your work
At first, the compensation was wonderful. Now, half or more than half of their rewards have simply left the company. The healthcare is a lot worse than Obamacare. Their sick and vacation time is terrible.
Office / Work Environment
Bundle up, you will always be cold if you work in one of their environments.
They recycle everything. Donated items and non-donated items.
They give you a work schedule, of course. If you want time off for a weekend you practically have to pull tooth and nail just in order to have that weekend off.
For all the years that I have worked for this company. I have never been proud to be apart of the company.
They definitely allow you to keep and have your job. If a manager doesn't like you then that's another story.
Has a wheelchair ramp and the ground is completely flat on the inside.
If you have a mental disability you will fall down. I fell down three times when I worked there. It's different for everybody.
The work is extremely boring if you are not even that smart.
Inclusive / Diverse
When you give your opinion to this company it's like going in one ear and then out the other.
