ED Magedson – Founder
Goodwill Industries2109 SW Penn Ave. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma United States of America
Urgently requested, with the sincerest request for immediacy of caution and action: DO NOT DONATE, WORK FOR, OR IN ANY WAY- CONTRIBUTE TO ANY GOODWILL FACILITY. Let me expound... this "Goodwill Industries," has proven itself to be a corrupt, greedy, non-compassionate, ruthless and carless brood of vipers as is related to any and ALL human and/or public relations.
My room-mate is an intelligent woman of a mature age who just happens to live with "Prior Willy"- a mild learning disability. While her thought processes are not always easy to express, she is quite clear and concise, once these said thoughts are collected. Due to her stress-level at this juncture, I have personally chosen to lodge this complaint against Goodwill Industries.
First, my room-mate has worked for Goodwill Industries for 17+ years. Though more than capable, she has NEVER been given an opportunity for advancement into the "higher" echelons of Goodwill Industries. In an attempt to transfer from out-of-state, she was told that she would just have to start all over again (I reitterate here that she has worked for this company for 17+ years) and would only make minimum wage. This is absolutely outlandish!
I personally travel quite frequently and throughout many of the Goodwill Industries facilities located throughout the midwest and southeast; I have personally witnessed the repulsively demeaning character, the bad attitudes and the lack of concern that management and various non-challenged staff members hold toward customers and employees alike. Goodwill steals from the public in order to errect facilities that are essentially designed to fatten the pockets of management and give them a FALSE sense of pride and accomplishment- all this while my room-mate's (amongst other employees in similar situations) sick leave and vaction time was ELIMINATED in order to fund these exhorbatant and useless ventures.
To put the icing on the proverbial cake- my room-mate was left outside the "Goodwill Industries" facility (tonight)- in freezing wind and temperatures, while management remained inside the building where it was warm... she was informed that she was not allowed to wait inside (for her ride) and that she could wait across the street at McDonald's if she wanted to get warm.
Within the first three days of her transfer to this particular facility, she has been bullied, threatend with employment termination and kept at work in a NON-HEATED loading dock.. Certain management personnel have also been through her personal belongings-(a notebook she uses to record vital information such as contact names, numbers and addresses) one manager's word over another manager (and the lying, on behalf of management ensues)...
One can only summize that "GoodWill [and I use that term very loosely] Industries" is making a mockery of the generosity of American Citizens and abusing presumably "easy" targets by hiring those who face disablities and challenges on a daily and often life-long basis. The majority of Goodwill Industries employees are handicapped, in some way challenged or have serious health problems They hire these "targets" (under the guise of care and consideration) in order to reinforce their own feelings of inferiority, inadequacy, false-pride, and false-accomplishment.
If you or someone you truly love and care about is in any way associated with Goodwill Industries... get out now- you are worth a lot more than they would have you believe.
If you are Goodwill Industries Management and wish to rebutt- I DARE YOU. Likewise, If you in anyway know who this complaint is in reference to, and she by some "strange" circumstance is fired... GET YOUR CHECKBOOK READY because I WILL OWN YOU. Our lawyers are standing by...
Thank you for your time and consideration in regard to these matters. Give (without reccompence/ receiving) to your local homeless with a pure and non-jugemental heart. Have a nice day.
