[I don't understand why people want to down Goodwill either. It is shame. They do the Dell Reconnect, which saves landfills. It is called recycling people. They do Shred, people watch them do it everyday. I tell you what is sad , when people dump their trash in front of goodwill and they have to pay to have it removed. What is wrong with you people?
You act like you have something against them making any money. It is called recycling.
I think you should know the facts before you start bad mouthing them. You people don't even know the facts, you just run your mouth.

Has anyone noticed the increase in prices at the local Goodwill's lately? They have raised quite a bit and if you notice the stock seems to have slacked off. Well I hate to tell you, but they are taking the best items and selling them on Ebay and at the local flea markets. As a shopper you are not seeing half of what comes into those stores, don't fall for the public relations spin they put on it. They are a terrible company, they even banned their employees from speaking to each other.

Goodwill employees handicap people that could't Otherwise get a job? Really? Where? The people I see there selling, putting out merchandise, and loading seem just fine. What disabilites are you talking of? My sister works at a local goodwill. Nothing wrong with her. She just needed a job.

Not everyone at Goodwill is disabled and not all disabilities are visible to the eye.

Not all disablilties are physical. Goodwill trains people in hoft skills and teaches them how to be their best. So if you don't notice someone with a disabilies Then Goodwill is working.

All the long term employées left for à reason. Upper management went to shit. How much actual hands on experience in retail was taken in considération before she got the job. Certificates dont mean much. Everything aimée put into makng Goodwill what it was over all those years went to crap less than à year later.
yea right

goodwill industries doesn't care about their employees the chief executive officers make more than their employees $280/hour that's too much money i worked at goodwill industries back in 1986 for 34 days i was referred by vocational rehabilitation my former counselor judy lockhart told me i get paid based on my productivity i couldn't grt a job in the community they said i had autism spectrum disorder or mental retardation that is false mental health is to blame for me being held back a grade in school that's right i'm stupid they were wrong goodwill industries is nothing but a for profit enterprise they get stuff for free they raise the price 2 to 5 times higher in their stores so they can rip you the customer off it's a scam don't donate to them

I have reason to believe at least one location has some employees that pounce on the "good stuff" before it hits the shelves. I took some items there a couple months ago, but from now on, I think I'll find someone who needs them or put them on Craigslist under the "free" section.
yes i agree, i dont donate to them anymore because of the price increase on things that are MOSTLY given to them and the disabled issue, they make me sick i have TONS of stuff to get rid of i am going to do what you are, im going to find someone that is need of it by asking around or simply on craigslist or facebook. i personally think goodwill is nothing but a steal and on top of there prices, when you check out they ask you if you would like to round up the change to help out some charity...uh no thank you ill donated my hard earn money myself and see that it gets to them its become nothing but another money hungry place just like the rest of them, nobody is out to help anyone anymore they are all out to help themselves anything to make a dollar this little consignment shop i heard about is suppose to be awesome, its local and they dont make money off anything the money they do make they take it to put more food in the pantry they give out food to those in need and they do sell clothes and stuff but very very cheap. a friend of mine went there and she bought a bunch of really nice jeans for .25 a pair and said they were hardly worn i just havent checked it out but keep doing what your doing goodwill is a rip off
