Reviews for Goodwill Industries International, Inc.
Some of their prices are higher than in Walmart new. I used to purchase a lot but not anymore. With coupons and special sales in regular stores is better than in Goodwill right now. They need to review their prices.

I am NOT a paid representative of Goodwill. I have made donations to Goodwill to be used for the benefit of less fortunate people. I have learned that the CEO plus the district heads earn more than $3 million, let alone all the other employees. That's a lot of donations and sales that goes to something other than the purpose for my donating.

As the national spokesperson for Goodwill and the Donate Movement, I have been in a unique position to partner with many members of the management team and see firsthand what a quality, caring organization this truly is. I am so impressed with everyone I come in contact with at the national office, and am impressed too with the CEOs and marketing professionals I've met from the member agencies all across North America. Goodwill has been around for over 100 years, reclaiming the value of both things and people, as the founder Edgar Helms said long ago.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
witnessing the quality work that quality people do every day to help those with barriers to employment
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
open as many Goodwill agencies as possible to help even more people in this economy.
