Current Employer Testimonials

Current Employer Testimonials


Acadia Windows and Doors has partnered with Goodwill Industries of the Chesapeake for the past 12 years.  We’ve found Goodwill to be an exemplary partner.  Goodwill’s success comes from their dedication to both the employee and employer.  They took the time to get to know our business, so they could determine which client would be the best fit.  Naturally, they know their clients, too.  That’s a win for the employee, and a win for us, as well.

Goodwill does such a good job supporting the employee and employer that we no longer hire directly.  All new hires, including friends and even relatives of current team members, begin their tenure here as temps placed by Goodwill.  Their screening and coaching process has served our company and our employees well.

I would not hesitate to recommend Goodwill Industries of the Chesapeake to any employer looking for good, well prepared individuals.  Our relationship with Goodwill has worked extremely well for us—it can work well for your company as well!

We have worked with the staff of Goodwill Industries of the Chesapeake for one year and have been impressed by their professionalism and commitment to their participant population. Through this relationship, we have hired more than 40 employees. The participants they refer/recommend for hire from their job readiness programs are prepared for the world of work and have proven to be some of our best employees.

I have had the pleasure of working with Goodwill Industries for the last 18 months. During this time we have been able to place more than 125 candidates across 10 stores within Baltimore City. Through their dedication in providing quality candidates we have been able to raise our retention rate. Once a candidate is hired the commitment from Goodwill continues with regular follow up to ensure the employee is adapting to their new job, and environment.
