I love Goodwill for one fact, it serves as a wonderful place to dump off junk after hours under the cover of darkness, that can not be picked up by regular garbage collection. Why pay someone to pick up and dispose of old televisons, mattresses, broken furniture, soiled carpets, batteries, deceased pets or depleted uranium.

I work for store 251 in Myrtle Beach,SC..btw I LOVE suzy Qs post..you are SO right on..id like to add more juicy info about Goodwills EVIL and GREED..they receive money for hiring disabled persons and veterans or both..they actually get money for every damn body they hire,just more if ur "documented" as disabled..ok anyway..Goodwill is all about making money and "production" numbers..now these stores are supposed to be minimum 60% employed by disabled people..if these people DO NOT meet production levels..they can then be "time studied" from workforce development..so then by LAW they can legally pay these poor people SUBMINIMUM WAGES..and since labor laws of 1986..there is NO minimum..the can pay whatever they want..AND even if they don't collect disability or SSI..so how is this EMPOWERING or IMPROVING peoples lives through the diginity and power of work?..YOU ARE RUINING PEOPLES LIVES GOODWILL!!!..GOD IS WATCHING YOU!..also. they sell COUNTERFEIT handbags and everyone knows this..all you have to do is contact your State Dept and speak with an investigator..if they have these fake goods on the floor and selling them..it is ILLEGAL..they can be fined and prosecuted!...the money they make is used to open more stores and line executives pockets..ROBERT SMITH..CEO..YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!...you're a MONEY HUNGRY TYRANT..YOU HAVE NO SOUL..EXPOSE GOODWILL for what they really are!!!!...

Goodwill is a scam. They sell the clothes-millions of donated clothes-to other dealers for high prices!!They in turn sort the good stuff for their stores and sell it at high margins. They make more than Bloomingdales and Macys because they dont pay anything for them. Its a 5 billion yearly enterprise with most of the money going to individual directors. If you want to donate DO NOT DONATE TO GOODWILL. Give instead to Salvation Army or to sell your clothes over the internet!!!

here in post falls idaho, there is a major road that runs right behind the goodwill so you can see what people donate befor it goes into the store.i have seen many good things go in but never hit the floor to be sold. i even donated some good resellable stuff and went in the store every day for 2 weeks and it never showed on the shelves!!!. just tonite they had a brand new electric toothbrush next to the cash register, i asked if anybody could buy it and the fat b$$ch behind counter said No !! in a stern voice. well the hell with goodwill, their ripoff employees, their overpriced online auctions, and their bad attitudes!if you think of donating to goodwill, save yourself some time and just ask the people who work there if they want it, if it is any good they will end up with it anyway.

I am absolutely disgusted with the high prices being charged by Goodwill Industries here in Santa Rosa Ca. I have been shopping Goodwill for 40 years and have seen the prices rising higher and higher over the past 10 years. Why are mens t-shirts priced $2.00 but womens t-shirts are priced $4.00? Kitchen utensils $5.00 a piece?? Glasses $3.00 a piece. I won't be going back until these prices come down. Nor will I be donating and I am telling my friends not to donate either.

I went to Goodwill in Rocky Mount NC and buy same tennis shoe the cashier said they was five and ten dollar.But the sign post the shoes for $3:29 and them sold them for Ten and Five Dollar, and that like telling a lie a about the prices I call the manage he said they change the price with how they look and what shape they of in.

The goodwills in my area are hiking prices on everything. Also the online stores are kind of a ripoff. Their shipping charges are outrageous and don't make sense. For example an item that cost a dollar to ship size small and just weight a couple of ounces their shipping charges are $9-11 dollars, very ridiculous and on top of that they have in place handling charges that typically go for $2-4 per item, sometimes they dont allow combine on shipping forcing you to pay handling fees and shipping fees for every single item...what a scam they have for stuff they get for free...I smell corruption !

I have wanted to write to Goodwill, Salvation Army, Value Village, and any other "charity" thrift store. WHY, on earth would you price stuff you get for FREE at 75% of new? It's broken, missing parts, no warrenty, and like I said...it came to you free. Reading all the other articles, I can see that your corporation is corrupt. (The CEO's reading this are probably having the last laugh.)The employees are under paid according to the above articles. Why do you have display cases with high end jewlery, or antiques? Some priced in the $1,000's and I am sure about 1% of your customers could even afford it. I saw a schwinn stingray priced at $289. Are you kidding me??? The tires were not original, it was in fair condition at best....e-baying it would probably on get you $100. A pair of faded jeans in the womens section was $49. Yeah sure they probably go for $100 new...but this is a THRIFT STORE. Your customers are low income. I have gone in with the intentions of spending $40 or more on stuff that I could use. I end up leaving having spent $0. Loosen up the prices, price it accordingly and remember you got the shit for freeeeeeee!!!!! I know I would spend more. But not at the current pricing.

I am complaining regarding the goodwills in the Santa Clarita Area. They receive donated items that they mark sky high, that either sit on the shelf until they are broken and are of no use to anyone. If this is a "win win" situation, then why aren't they marking items at a "win win" for everyone concerned. Many disabled, unemployed and consumers who other wise can't afford things should be able to purchase donated items at a fair price and not close to retail for a used item. I have noticed that they wait to bring out under-marked items for when their family or friends come it. On occasion, I see the staff lead certain consumers to rooms where they have stored items or hid items for them to retrieve. People are ripping off tags, changing tags and if you want an item that doesn't have a tag they will mark it up to what they feel that certain customer can afford in most cases RETAIL. One manager named Jim who works in the Stevenson Ranch store, is the rudest person and you hear people talk about him including the employes. He raises his voice in the store and rants and raves about different shoppers . Is lack of professionalism and management skills is disturbing. After shopping Goodwills at other locations, SCV by far has the highest price Goodwill! I will never donate to Goodwill again! They do not live by their Mission to help the needy. THEY HAVE BECOME SO GREEDY!

Glitter fascist sale shows poor customer service. First displaying red and black balloons. Forcing people and actually yelling at people to stay behind an elderly person that could not have been waiting out in the cold since 4am. Then claiming that there was a time limit on deciding to purchase items. Only to find out later that the stuff offered was mostly junk crap not worth a dime. Goodwill is not a community friendly non-profit and promotes and helps more naturalization than helping the people born here on the land. I hope karma takes over and shows the fraud for what it is.

TODAY BEGINS VETERANS DAY WEEKEND..... I HAVE SERVED TWO COMBAT TOURS IN IRAQ, TOTALING 28 MONTHS OF MY BOOTS POUNDING THE SANDS OF THAT MISERABLE COUNTRY. FIRST ONE FROM SEPT 2005 to SEPT 2006 WITH THE 4th INFANTRY DIVISION FOR 13 MONTHS AND THE SECOND FOR 15 MONTHS WITH THE 18th AIRBORNE CORPS....I RETURNED IN APRIL 2009 FROM THE LAST ONE. I AM A REGULAR SHOPPER AT GOODWILL....THEY OFFER DISCOUNT TO SENIORS...AND....TO MY DISMAY.....TO STUDENTS BUT NOT TO MILITARY VETERANS!!!!! FOLKS, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT!!!!!! CAN SOMEONE TELL ME A REASONABLE, LOGICAL EXCUSE AS TO WHY A DISCOUNT IS GIVEN TO A STUDENT WHO DEFEND THIS COUNTRY WITH A PENCIL IN THEIR MOUTH AND A BOOK IN THEIR RIGHT HAND AS A WEAPON? WHEN I ASK THE CASHIER WHY WE ARE EXCLUDED I HAVE ALWAYS HEARD THE SAME EXCUSE "we are working on it" FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS!!!!! I DEFENDED THE RIGHTS WE HAVE BEEN ENJOYING THIS DAYS....AND WE, THE MILITARY COMMUNITY DESERVES BETTER THAN THAT....THESE PEOPLE NEED TO GET THEIR STUFFS STRAIGHT AND SOON!...... IT IS SOO PITIFUL TO HEAR THE SAME ANSWER ALL THE TIME.....IS TIME WE GET THE RECOGNITION FROM GOODWILL....

i am a regular shopper with goodwill and heres my story, Last week i was shopping at the northwest side outlet in indy. I had finished shopping and was sitting in my car when one of the managers came outside and got in her vehicle no big deal i see it all the time, However when she put a brown paper bag to her lips it dawned on me that this job must be too much for her no wonder she is harsh towards the customers at times. It gets better another employee (a cashier) came out too she stood right next to her manager as she took another swig from her bottle both of these employess should be fired one for condoning bad behavior and one for demostrating bad behavior

Went to goodwill in Anderson s.c in the stuffed animal bin there was a Garfield the cat stuffed animal with a net on it all items suppose to be 50 cents in this bin got to front to purchase it and the guy said it was not marked to sell. I mean really WTF so he then takes it in the back and comes out without it says I can not purchase it they have to price it. Not only did it piss me off because it was in the stuffed animal bin but my daughter age 7 thru a hissy fit home! Y'all people are ripoffs everything is to expensive & it's not fair to take away from a child just because something ended up in the wrong bin as the manager said. The boy at register seen it came out of stuffed animal bin he also didn't have to be a dick head & just let me have it for the price the bin said even offered to pay more how cruel are y'all people!! The crap is giving to you needs new friendly staff and more reasonable prices....

I have recently three problems shopping at Goodwill. 1. Store would not accept their own $5.00 coupon that was issued at neighborhood grocery on back of dated receipt because Goodwill exp date of 12/2011 was torn off when reciept issued. I had shopped for an hour and had to pay full price if I wanted goods. Manager was no help. Town & Country issued me another Goodwill coupon and apologized. 2. At donate $2.00 , buy 1 pair jeans and get 2 free sale. Store clerk and manager didn't feel that corduroy jeans were included in offer but did include colored stretch jeans. 3. Brought pair of men's Polo jeans to clerk . Sign clearly stated "All Jeans $7.00 unless marked differently. Jeans had no price tag but did have plastic color used to identify prices during sales. Clerk said jeans should be higher price because of Polo name. She sent another clerk into back who came back and said $8.00. I was so insulted that I will never donate another item or shop regularly in Good Will again. They can be so rude to regular customers even though they operate solely on free donations given to them. This is not good customer service.

THEY GET THIS STUFF FOR NOTHING. Over the years, our family has donated thousands of dollars worth of goods to GOODWILL. Now that the economy is stressed and more of us people are shopping at GOODWILL, the are spiking prices, exploiting the situation and profiting from our loss. In other words, GOODWILL is taking advantage of a bad situation. They should be doing just the opposite and should be renamed BADWILL!!!

Ok,I work at a Goodwill in South Carolina,my greedy Ceo's name is Robert Smith,his old ass not worth a shit VP,is Tom,Corporate is in N. Charleston,SC,and my district mnagers name is Cindy(smokeaholic)Kaufmann.Anyway,enough of that,where I work no matter how much work experience you have,if you are hired as a sales associate,you get 7.25 an hour,the "leads" or supervisors,get about 8.25-8.50 an hour,the assistant mgr,low-mid 20s annual salary,and the store manager(even if its a big store(get around 40k+ annual salary,the GM and AM,both get bonuses for reAching sales goals,and maybe other incentives,not sure.In my region they are required to have a minimum of 60% of their staff to have some sort of documented psychological or physical disability,so keep that in mind when dealing with odd associates,most other companies would never hire these people cuz they can't perform to company standards.We do help the community some,give clothing and such to need families,schools,etc..but I wouldn't say a lot though..employees get a dismal 20% discount,and can't shop except for when clocked out and merchandise hasn't just hit the floor, WE ARE NOT allowed(at least my area)to hold stuff in the back,take stuff home,etc,even though people are doiin shady stuff all the time,I see it.They have a group of people with more severe disabilities come mon-fri,they come adult homes,private residences,etc,brought on company van,they clean bathrooms daily,and mostly hang clothing to be put onto floor,also keep in mind they get paid about 10$ for the 3-4hrs that they are there for,pretty horrible huh,since they get a disabiliy check somehow,its legal to do so.The work environment is germ infested,people get sick all the time from each other and merchandise,Goodwill receives grants,and other subsidies from the government for hiring disabled,helping find employment(if they have a workforce center),adult ed programs,etc..clothing that is stained or too worn goes into a bailer to be bailed,and they get about 500$ per bail,merchandise is also put into "gaylords",large cardboard boxes,when stuff that is donated is not working or not in great shape,electronics,computer stuff,cardboard,metal and shoes are all put into these gaylords to be sent off to be sold by bulk/lb,Goodwill is tAx exempt,thus merchandise is tax free and they don't pay property taxes,sometimes their land that stores are located on is donated or at very low cost. Yes employees can be rude cuz its a very stressful profit driving business,BUT,the customers are crazy,with people buying and seeling stuff online and such to make money,getting the good stuff is very competitive,a lot of loud,yelling customers,fighting,etc..it seems like shoplifting frm customers is tolerated(they never charge or prosecute),BUT employees get written up all the damn time for stupid shit.GOODWILL is EVIL and GREEDY beyond comprehension,they make a killing and yes their prices are high sometimes,but do u know why? Its because managers have some much pressure to make sales goals,and alweays want to make bonuses,coporate is riding managments ass all the damn time.oh and btw my D.M.,Cindy Kaufman,well her husband owns and operates snack machines in the stores(3 of them) in my area..she is profiting off of her poor ass employees,she's a greedy fucking arrogant bitch,that's called CONFLICT OF INTEREST, yoou fucking morons..so I hoped this info interested you :).

shame on you people,both my husband and i are disable ,living on a very small income,no medical ins.and have all types of. illness.we have to take turns buying our meds,him one month,me the next.to us goodwill meant we could go shop sometimes and get excited about a second hand item.over the years we have made many donations to gw,i hope at least the proceeds help their local needy community,but,i doubt it.WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE HUMAN RACE .we no longer look out for each other

Three weeks ago (June 17 2011) I slipped on a hanger on the floor at your Oak Ridge Tn store and had to go to the hospital by ambulance for a knee injury....I had witnesses to this and it was clearly a case of negligence that the hanger was on the floor (several people told me they had seen it there for at least 30 minutes). My knee is still giving me problems (as I have had a knee replacement on that knee from a previous injury). I have YET to be contacted by ANYONE from Goodwill OR their insurance company and I am receiving bills for this that I do not know what to do with. I am on disability and cannot pay these. I thought SOMEONE would have contacted me by now.Do I need to contact an attorney to take care of this or do you think we can settle this without all that? The store has all my information and the Corporate office should have it by now. I will wait a few more days to hear from someone with Goodwill and then I will have to turn it over to an attorney, because I am still having problems with this knee and need to go to an orthpaedic dr.to have it checked out.Thank you,Cynthia McKinley
