Unfortunately this isn't a great review but rather a message to Goodwill Industries of Central Arizona. I have a few friends who work at a Scottsdale Rd store in Tempe AZ whom on a daily basis leave work feeling like they were just beaten with a baseball bat. I am a former employee who was fired for trying to stand up to "Bree" the production manager at the store who treats the production like a heard of sheep or cow being sent to slaughter. That isn't mmuch of an exaggeration! She constantly demeans the employees with no respect or concern for their feeling or moral. She has threatened employees with their jobs for situations that have no direct involvement required of her. She has violated store policies but the employees are afraid to speak up. I was terminated, with others to follow and a few have quit. This store was like a family until she made it a broken home of employment. I could point out specific example and will if needed but I don't want any of the workers still there to suffer from this complaint. I had made a previus unanimous complaint as though I were a Goodwill shopper upset with the treatment of the employees at this store and of my termination. Two employees whom I was friends with were then questioned as to whether they knew of the complaint and if they had even helped write it. Actions like that and the daily actions of the production manager named "Bree" should not be stood for as no employee at any place of work deserves or should be treated as immorally and unethically as we have been by "Bree". I hope to see her reprimanded for her actions, especially since her performance at the previous Goodwill stores she has worked at display a similar trend.
