Sales Associate in Maize, KS
The typical day at work would be coming in, clocking in then going straight to work until break. Then, after break work until close, then clean. I learned that you need to be patient and kind to everyone no matter hoe disrespectful they can be to you, because you are there to help them. The management was strict but at the same time they just wanted us and them to be the best we could be. The hardest part of the job would have to be mainly just making sure you're always staying buys, and the most enjoyable would definitely have to be meeting and interacting with new people.

You don't feel like a number at Goodwill. I've made some nice friendships working for this company and the work is super easy. Management could use some work. There's not really any training so good luck figuring things out! Pay is not great, but not terrible for the work.

Great working environment for all. Management is awesome and so are the fellow associates. Everyone helps each other out to make the day/night go smoothly.

I was stressed out most of the time but I enjoyed working with a few people that I got along with they made it fun by laughing and joking around making the job more fun
Cashier in Bloomington, IL
As someone who has many disabilities both physical and mental I figured Goodwill would be a perfect place to work. I was so wrong. At first things were great, people were kind and helpful. In less than a few weeks I started to notice the constant drama and lack of productivity happening by not only employees but managers. When I would get too sick to work I was eventually written up and fired. After I left I was informed by a few workers that employees but mostly the managers would talk bad about me. My time there I was extremely over worked. I would often be the only cashier for the entire shift and often I had to work overtime. Not only was I required to be the sole cashier but I also had to do work in the back as well as sorting clothes on the sales floor making me unable to properly assist customers when confused or needing to check out. The managers constantly manipulated me into doing more than what was required of me simply because they or other employees weren’t wanting to do what they needed to.
