Quote: Service Dog Allegedly Led To Barring From Goodwill Store, Tennessee Woman Claims ...
...a Tennessee woman dealing with disabilities resulting from a car accident, claims her service dog,...., led employees at a Goodwill shop to deny her entrance.
“About a month ago my husband and I went to the Goodwill, and we were approached by their supervisor. We were told that we had to leave or show certification or documentation for the dog," Holowka told WCYB.
That's not a legal request, according to the Americans with Disabilities Act, which states that "state and local governments, businesses, and nonprofit organizations that serve the public generally must allow service animals to accompany people with disabilities in all areas of the facility where the public is normally allowed to go."
....says she was involved in a car accident in 1992 which led to epilepsy that sometimes gave her partial complex seizures.....helps her deal with the resulting complications, but .... says the fact that she has no lasting visible effects sometimes complicates the process.
While federal law says one thing, the Goodwill store apparently believes another. WCYB reportedly spoke with a Goodwill representative who said that they'd be happy to admit .... and ...as long as they showed the "right paperwork." Excluding that, they maintained that their policy says "no pets allowed." Unquote

i work for a good will store. one day during the week of June at a women with a little girl who had a Chihuahua dog as holding the dog in her arms.

with this next statement i wasn't trying to be a but head but i ask why there was a dog in here because it not a service dog or anything and since i am the janitor of the place i don't want costumers complaining that a dog messed up the floor or even was running around in the store.

and the manager said the dog is welcome because it's small and as long as she holds the dog in her arms it's fine.

i said ok.

then i got chewed out buy a costumer about how they should not let a dog that is a non service in the place because of health regulations and i said talk to my manger.

so they costumer left along with the dog.

I'm working on this and when the time is right I will get this printed. It's going to be called "Goodwill" Do you know who your donating too?

Goodwill in Omaha Nebraska sucks too. They wrote me up because I sexually "harrassed" another male employee by saying a customer was Hot. He himself read sadomachistic porn aloud and wrote "anal lube" on a lotion bottle the same day he turned me in. They also take soiled bed sheets and pillow cases and mix them with clothes. Don't you think this is stupid in these days of the Bed Bug epidemic?

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.
I can say that I was hired a few days ago by Goodwill and I have yet to be told when, how or if I will be paid. There was no training with the exception of being shown where and how to put out clothes yet, it was assumed that I knew how to do everything.

I took a job as custodian at Goodwill in Canton Ohio. Was trained one day by a person who was disabled. 2wks in I hear Mgr say we are happy with this arrangement you guys are doing well. 30 days in I was let go for no reason. I honestly didn't know what the heck I did wrong. Everything they asked me to do I did with the best of my ability. I have experience as a supervisor as well I was definately "screwed" First job in over a year too I should have stayed on unemployment now Im fucked 3 ways from Sunday.

The Goodwills in the Goodwill Omaha system are great. They are organized and the employees are paid $8/hr minimum. I have worked at one of the stores for almost a year and a half and am greatly satisfied. Then again, I am a college student and the goodwill is flexible.

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.
Sounds like you would fit right in with them. You are money hungry. All you want is tax write-offs and do not care about people or feelings. You are a broken record. How many times are you going to write the same thing. If people want to write about their personal experiences with Goodwill they should be able to with out feeling like someone is going to bash them. By the way. If so many people are saying so many things are wrong with Goodwill.....uh...maybe something is wrong.

I work for goodwill in Michigan and i have been there for 15 months and i loved my team when i first started then we got a new manager and it went all down hill from there. I have been promoted 2 times since i been there and since i have become a supervisor i regret it.

I must say that I am a Customer Service Manager for Goodwill of Central Arizona, and I have to agree with most of the posts above. Unfortunately Goodwill treats their employees like crap. I have been with the company for nearly two years, and have just barely been promoted. The only reason I was promoted was because of a store manager who saw my experience and work ethic and pushed to get me promoted. Unfortunately the company fired this manager a month later for "undisclosed reasons". Before anyone starts in, I am a well educated individual. I do have a college degree and have several years of previous supervisory experience. I do not put much stock in rumours, however, I have heard that I am not being promoted as appropriate because the district director does not like me. Apparently I am "too much of a 'know-it-all' to be promoted further". I have consistently seen an abuse of power from management staff above me, and from senior management within the company. Unfortunately, senior management doesn't care to listen to the hourly minimum wage employees, and I find that I'm being told to just ignore the complaints. GICA, has changed the way they offer benefits to their employees, including charging for benefits for the employees that used to be covered by the company. Unfortunately, this change of a payroll deduction for healthcare did not come with a pay raise. In addition the annual pay raise for being a good employee is $0.25 per hour. We are told not give anything more. The senior management of GICA seems to not want to hear the complaints from their employees, and issues are simply brushed under the rug while those involved are let go for various unfounded reasons. GICA does not offer proper training for any of it's employees and does not honor the "promote from within" policy that it so often flaunts. The company could take steps to improve, however it should be done sooner rather than later. As far as doing something about it, I have taken steps and even requested to speak directly with senior management within the company and with the board of directors only to be denied each time. Instead I have been "documented" for failing to follow company policy regarding a procedure on the register. A procedure that has never been followed in the nearly 2 years I have worked there by any of the management staff, but has "miraculously" been on the books for years. I unfortunately do not have the faith in the "Goodwill Mission" that I had when I first started working for them. As of this post I am official seeking a position within another company that will allow me grow professionally and utilize the many years of experience and knowledge that I have obtained.
All that you said here is true. Signed, Deep Throat.

I am currently suing Goodwill of Chillicothe, Ohio for violating my rights as a disabled person. It was my first job in 20 years that I did not have to lie about my disabilities. Only to have those disabilities used against me. I am more then devastated it has put me into a barely functional depression. This forum will magically disappear as most already have that I have posted anything about them on. I resigned and so far the unemployment office has sides with me, but they appealed it once again now we have to go for a hearing. I am just glad I managed to get a damn good attorney and EEOC is taking a very long hard look at helping me persue my case. I will do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING in power to expose them as the pathetic frauds they are!
