Reviews for Goodwill Industries of Central Ohio, Inc.

Rating: 1 stars  

Had a question about the website concerning an obscure reference on the auto auction portion of the site. When I called the auto auction the Agent didn't know what was meant by "gas monkey garage project". I thought it was a typo. Was then referred to Todd Regal(sp) whose call went to voice mail. So, I now call the website number for " any questions or comments and the operator sends me back to the auto auction agent who tells me he just spoke to Todd Regal who is aware that I've been referred to speak to him. Now I call the operator again and tell him he needs to connect me to someone who is responsible for the website and he rudely tells me that the agent should have been able to answer my question and that he was being very patient and kind with me, and sends me to Todd Regal's v. m., whom is V.P Marketing. So now I Google gas monkey and it's an obscure car reality show on the discovery channel that I guess I should esoterically be aware of just because I potentially want to by a car at their charity auction. One more call to the agent to explain who says,"I'm a car guy and I never heard of it." Once more the v.m. forTodd v.p. marketing who handles website content. No return call. Very unprofessional for a nonprofit whose lifeblood rellies on donations from the general public whom I'm sure very few are hotrod hipsters. No goodwill.

Goodwill continuously provides volunteers with great opportunities to give back in the local community. I have personally volunteered in bowling and the art studio. Their mission of empowering individuals with disabilities and other barriers is great. I loved the interaction i had with their consumers. It was a great experience.
