Well I don't have alot of time to write but I figured I would give everyone the truth about this company, I worked here for about six months and I was working at a small location that only accepted donations we didn't have a open store as the closed it a year before I started there and moved to a better location, so our jobs was to sit and collection donations all day, we never had more then one person working, we had to load the entire semi by ourself, the semi was parked outside and there was a ramp attached to it so that means we had to take 1500lb boxes of clothes and other items stacked double so 3000lbs and try to get them up this ramp,
I was a small guy but even the bigger guys couldn't hardly do it, now we had to do this 2 times a week, un-load the pallets and load them, and we had to do this crap in winter as we had to try to run as fast as we could to get up the ramp without slipping and falling and get it up there if we didn't load it we could get wrote up and get in trouble, if someone donated large items like couches and other huge things we had to do it ourselfs even though our employee handbook states we aren't allowed to lift more then 50lbs until one day I didn't load this heavy a** couches this guy had he had 4 of them and I couldn't do it myself they were over 200lbs each I refused them and I got in trouble like are you kidding me?
They were so cheap that when it came winter the heat didn't work in the building all we had is a space heater that was to eat a small room like I mean SMALL, yet it was suppose to heat 2 huge stores front/back even when we had to have the garage door open to load the truck, I complained along with the 2 other guys about the heat issue they sent there useless repair people out and they said they had no idea why it wasn't working, left and did nothing, I complained several more times, sent them again, once again useless,
finally after a few weeks of freezing in 30 degrees inside the building a heating company comes out and says yeah the heater is shot its going to cost like $3k at least to fix it, and he said they won't fix it I know they won't spend this money, he sent them the things wrong with it, and they said they weren't going to fix it because they plan on closing this store within a year, I'm like are you kidding me? So I call the corp office complain to the main guy he's like if your that cold you must not be working that hard, 30 degrees are you kidding me? So I just kept reporting the issue as I had to sit out in my car for at least a half hour at a time with my heat blasting to stay warm I got sick several times,
then I started getting written up for all these random reasons I knew they wanted to fire me so they didn't have to fix the issue at hand, not only all these problems but this wall that was HUGE had black mold all over it, I mean COVERED in black mold, I showed several people it and they said that looks bad they did nothing about it, so I ended up quitting due to unsafe work conditions and collected unemployed for about a month then I got denied stating I quit and blah blah, I ended up fighting it for over six months, seen a unemployment judge they didn't show of course because they knew they were wrong,
I won and yeah goodwill is nothing but a fraud company, they help no one, they start you out at dirt wages, gave me a 15 cent increase in pay that's it, stay far away from them they lie at helping disabled people as I was one and they had me slave to do things for nothing and the major disabled people they have doing s**t jobs like sweeping floors in the back so no one can see them.. Your money goes to the CEO's that are getting paid over 150k a year, Yes they actually earn over 100k a year everyone at the corp offices you can get this info too but looking into it, and the real hard workers can't even make it in life or pay there bills..
SCREW YOU GOODWILL, I HOPE EVERYONE SEE'S WHAT KIND OF COMPANY YOU REALLY ARE.
