Be careful of the management team if you are at the store level. Mine seems to enjoy making people cry.

I enjoy working as a cashier for Goodwill. I feel like my gifts are being put to use.

Be prepared to work double your male counterparts at senior levels just to stay employed/tough slog to get promoted.

    Boys club at the top yet they don’t acknowledge it. Poor work life balance / unfair treatment of female senior leaders.

    Culture expects you available at all hours/no respect for any personal time. Very difficult environment for parents.

    They call it structure but really its inflexibility to allow for any type of work life balance

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. If you need a part time position to earn some additional income then it can help you buffer until you acquire something more stable.

As long as you are prepared to sacrifice time with your family, you can go very far in this company. Gender means nothing when it comes down to making money, which is their bottom line.

Beware of the stress-level and backhanded expectations. People are encouraged to give unsolicited feedback to people's managers.

It's a great place to work and there is equal chance for growth within the company for men and women. Most of my direct supervisors/superiors were women.
