I was shit canned for nothing. Interrogated like a criminal...then fired. Had evidence to contradict their story and STILL didn't get unemployment from them. They are in cahoots with the state in most EVERY state.
The clothes are also riddled with scabies.
If what you are saying is true you are a fool to work for such an organization. It is a free country, leave. I like Goodwill I get a great tax write off when I contribute to them.

My daughter worked at Goodwill for almost 4 years. And she knew her time was coming to an end. The people she had worked with never made it past 4 years. So low and behold at about the 4 year mark they set her up to fail. They say on their adds that they help the poor and disabaled. I do not agree, and I will go to To Vincent de Paul before I ever go back to BADWILL. If any of you are from WA state and in the Auburn area, please call ask Jessie from king 5 news. I really think he can help. or if you have any other suggestions or ideas respond to this. I am tired of seeing the adds for goodwill saying they help. I wonder who they really help? Help thy self.

All of you disgruntled Goodwill employees should acquire skills to enable you to get a job you enjoy. This is why we pay our taxes for the free educational system of which you should be taking advantage. Didn't your parents tell you to make good grades and study in school? If they didn't why didn't logic dictate you to do it? You still have a chance to get those skills which make you attractive to employers other than Goodwill, so go get them. Believe me complaining will not do you any good in the business world, it will go on our record which will stay with you for life. A smile and hard work is a better alternative, good luck.

Why don't we complain to our local news satations about Goodwill being Badwill. There adds have to stop, they are not true. After 4 years working with them you are terminated. And if its not that a young 7 year old is raped by a customer. They need to be stopped.

That won't help you if you are an employee, get the skills so you don't have to work for them as I suggested. Believe me you will be a happier person. A company with unfair employee practices will never pay you what you desire. I went to night school and school on the weekends, and you can also. If you work for them use them to get an education at night school. Anger begets anger so just destroy them with smiles and your happiness, this usually annihilates the angry mean person, good luck with a successful future.

I think they suck because they are greedy! Seems like they want top dollar for broke and used stuff! I donate to places that help the homeless shelter in town here or the salvation army. Goodwill is getting selfish!

They abuse there employees,and treat you like dirt.
And the only way to work your way up, is to be as nasty,dishonest and disgusting as they are. And it dont matter who you turn to for help they are all in it together!!

Why haven't you Goodwill employees done anything? You complain but you say nothing about what you have done about it! You people are like US citizens who whine and complain about the president but don't vote. Ever heard of getting a lawyer?

Goodwill is a scam. And a depressing place. Ive never worked at one but they have been a sketchy organization for a long time. My 2cents.

These people in management are thugs. And they select bullies to supervise, aka, oppress, the rest of the employees. These are the sociopaths -- the managers and their lackey supervisors -- who provide support to the greedy buggers at the top. Greedy Goodwill -- has a ring to it. The economic downturn has barely touched them. They are able to keep profits up by seeing that you don't get overtime, and finding reasons to fire you when it's convenient for them. They should be locked up for crimes against humanity. Or -- you could organize and form a union.

Why do you work for them? Do you lack the skills to get another job? Go into business for yourself. They are a great place to get a tax write off for contributing unwanted items. Did you read my post about acquiring the skills employers are looking for in an employee. LPN nurses are in big demand now, but require the necessary skills, look into this. The pay would be much better than working at Goodwill. Hope this has been helpful.

GW was my last resort of getting a job. Hmmm... I was fired for unsatisfactory job performance with no written warning or even knew anything was coming after just 6 weeks! I worked at the corporate headquarters store. From my boss to the higher ups, it's the most dysfunctional place I've ever worked at. And, they're ads on television just continue to put blinders on the public about who they really are. The workload and atmosphere is equivalent to a sweat shop. Don't shop there and definately don't work there. They're a scam!

Believe me, I have never worked there, or shopped at a Goodwill Store. I have no intention to ever shop at one. I donate to them, good place to get tax write-offs.

I never donated because they make you drive and drop your stuff off somewhere at their donation sites. Other charities will pick your stuff up from home. Save time and money. Donate elsewhere.

You and I are free to do as we please. I also support a local church with donations for the needy, Goodwill is not the only place to which I have donated. BTW, everyone at that church works as volunteers for no pay.
