do not work for them
Asssistant manager, orillia - October 19, 2013
I am a former assistant manager for goodwill.
They are modern day Slave drivers.
They treat there staff and Manager badly. They terrminate Staff for no reason and fight to pay Lieu Pay.
Bins of Products come from Toronto with Mice feces, Maggots casing, and urine/feces stained. Bed Bugs / Fleas. Stains.
Managers are not professional with staff. Parting at their homes after hours.
They mark up product so when it is 50 - 75 % days they are still making retail profit.
Health and Safety is a job. Example Orillia location manager and union rep are best friends and staff are afraid to come forward as they get fired when they do come forward.
Reported issues with manager and head office and was let go.
They take items donations they are not sellable, and clearly unhealthy.
They sell knock off purses and clothing at a high mark up, and will not put items special items on days on sale and put them out on days they are not.They will even markup items the day of sale on floor just before the store opens to make more $ on the item. So you think u are getting 50 or 75 % off, but your are paying double the original from when they just opened.
Goodwill is not for the helping the community or people that need it. They are greedy. I can buy cloths cheaper at Walmart then at Goodwill.
Run don't walk from goodwill in any position.
