Before I started to work for Goodwill, I lived with my mom at home. I saw an ad for a job at Goodwill in the local newspaper. I was able to get an interview and was happy and excited to get the job. Though I have had a lot of summer jobs, I am proud to say that I have been working at the Augusta Goodwill store for the past twelve years.
What I like best about working at Goodwill are the customers. When I first started working here, I worked in the donation area, sorting and hanging clothes. I enjoyed that work and now I assist with taking care of the dressing rooms, where I have the opportunity to interact with our great customers.
Goodwill helps people find jobs, they work with people in their Residential Services program and in their many other programs that help people gain independence.
I see a better future for myself, since I have been working at Goodwill. I now live in my own apartment, my own home. I am independent and I love it.
