What does it mean to work for Goodwill Industries?
Goodwill is more than just a thrift shop. The employees of Goodwill work together as a team to process thousands of donations for sale. The donations help fund employment services for 5,000 individuals in the Lincoln community. Our employees have earned their spots on the Goodwill team, working each day enthusiastically and dedicated to our mission: willing workers employed and community resources maximized. Goodwill also strives to be environmentally responsible, working to recycle any unsellable item. Last year, Goodwill diverted 5.1 million pounds of materials from the landfills.
See what Goodwill means to JT, Team Lead I:
JT has been working as a team lead for Goodwill Industries in Lincoln since 2011 and is just one of the many Goodwill employees who embody the mission whole-heartedly. Here’s what he has to say about his job...
“I enjoy working at the Computer and Electronics Store because it's a good fit for me. I've always been real big into games, both video and other styles. At this store I get to use my knowledge of games to sell them. I also am a huge comic book fan and get to sell comics here as well. Since being at this location, I have learned a lot about computers. I know how to take them apart, refurbish them and make slight repairs. I also have learned a lot about all sorts of different electronics. Goodwill has helped me grow as a manager and I am thankful for the knowledge they have taught me.”
