My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Goodwill Industries Of Eastern North Carolina, Inc., Durham, NC, USA
This a HORRIBLE company to work for, and people should not donate to them! They micro-manage and will not let you make any decisions being a store manager. They watch their employees on the camera more than they do the people that come into the store and steal everyday. They don't tell you that when you are hired that you will be cleaning up pee and feces from people that decide to use the bathroom in the dressing room or outside in the parking lot and don't give you the right tools to clean it up. This is a very physically demanding job, where you have to work crazy hours, and sometimes don't even get a break because they don't have enough staff on, or there isn't another manager.
Goodwill claims that they are a non profit organization but will fire managers for not meeting sales, when you have no control over people coming into the store to buy things. Sometimes homeless people come into the store and ask for clothes and we have to turn them away and refer them to the Salvation Army, or helping hands mission because goodwill doesn't believe in helping out the homeless which I don't understand because everything in the store is donated to them. People need to be weary about working for Goodwill because you will not be happy. The money that you earn isn't worth the time, aggravation and stress that you have to go through at this place. They definitely don't live up to their mission statement.
