Production & Retail Team Lead (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – May 1, 2017
I loved working for GW but regionals are not to great they do not do thorough investigations on certain things. I learned great communication skills and patience working there. I love how they are different cultures there.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – August 17, 2018
Goodwill was an okay company to work for but things often seemed very unorganized and there were too many people in charge giving different instructions. Managers would hire their friends and would turn away other applicants. I was the only male cashier so I was forced to do everything and anything that required physical effort.
Goodwill offers a handful of benefits for employees.
Managers often hung by themselves and let employees battle through tough situations alone.

Controller (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – August 16, 2018
I enjoyed every hour spent at the office at Gulfstream Goodwill as the workforce and the Executive Management were friendly, down-to Earth people who truly appreciated all of the employees and expressed their appreciation on a daily basis.
Great environment particularly if you were a hard worker.
Difficult to get accurate financial information from various department heads.
Senior Store Manager (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 16, 2018
Worked serveral years. Work was not appreciated or rewarded. Upper management is insecure and will throw u under the bus to cover u their mistakes. The hourly employs work hard and are the strength of this organization
No overtime for salary employees but it is expectected. Upper management is awful to work with
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – August 16, 2018
Diverse work invironment, fast paced, stress full at times, pay is average for the work performed, good place to gain experience in the warehouse industry, good first job for someone with low level of work history
Fun place to work. Employees are mostly characters.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Sarasota, FL – August 16, 2018
I was a cashier. We were the third busiest Goodwill in America so we worked hard to get those customers rung up and out. The managers were the worst I've ever had. They do near nothing and especially when we were slammed and needed them to jump on a register they both were hesitant to or diliberately got lost somewhere.
Working with characters. Humorous recovered addicts and criminals.
Must work 40 hours a week unless you have some autistic like disability. No part time.
Working at Goodwill Industries taught me how to cope with working in a fast paced work environment.
EHOB Processor (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – August 16, 2018
Our daily routine included processing different materials ranging from preparation of EHOB medical mats to sorting and distinguishing differences in raw materials being used in several competing industries.
Good place to work to learn skills for advancement
Keyhokder/Assist Manager (Former Employee) – Harvey, LA – August 16, 2018
This industry is a non profit organization where school students, younger people starting out and seniors who have disabilities or retired can succeed. This job is perfect for training skills which will help a person advance in this company and pursue others.
