WHY WORK FOR GOODWILL?
You’ll know whatever your job, you make a difference. Funding for our mission of jobs training and career development is primarily generated through the hard work of our retail employees. That means we enjoy a stability not often experienced by human service organizations solely funded by outside sources. Goodwill employees are driven and Goodwill is constantly changing and growing. The reason our company performs so well and is respected as a leading Goodwill region is the flexibility, work ethic and passion of those who work for us. We believe strongly in giving back to our employees by offering top notch benefits – paid time off, medical coverage, dental, vision, life insurance, disability, tuition reimbursement, 403(b), retail incentives, and even a company pension plan which contributes 10% of your income each year when you become eligible. Join us and find out how amazing it is to be a part of the team.
