Negative work environment

Bra Fitter (Current Employee)
Pleasant Prairie, WI

I have been working at Hanesbrands part-time for more than a year

ProsIf we make a max sales goal every month we all get a $50 bonus, and a $25 bonus if we make minimum sales goal. Pay is $1 higher then my states' minimum wage. Physically easy job because its a small store.

ConsThey raised the bar soo high on our sales goals, we don't even make the minimum anymore. We are still the top store in our district but don't get any kind of bonus for it. Hanes is not a good, growing company to be worth getting into management wise. We only get one ten minute break if we work any shift up to six and a half hours. The store manager needs to go ASAP. Half our employees are actively looking for a different job, and every single other manager is looking for a different job. We are very slow a lot of the time during cold weather months, and even on days when the number if associates out number the amount of customers on the store, we still aren't allowed to put out stock because "the customers come first". And the manditory greeting for every customer is ridiculous and long.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore encouragement when we do good, rather then always freaking out about every little mistake. We are still human.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

So many mngmnt changes and people quitting and being understaffed...

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Kittery, ME

I have been working at Hanesbrands part-time for more than a year

ProsWhen you first get hired you get clothes to pick out and wear to work. After that in the spring and fall you get another allowance of clothing.

ConsYou are hired to work under 28 hrs but they are so understaffed that you end up working over 40,after 2 years no raises. The DM is very rude and biased.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe store needs to get some management in that can actually manage a store. I have been through 3 and have no more patience to wait any longer.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Short term, low quality, too constrained

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Winston-Salem, NC

I worked at Hanesbrands

ProsBig company
Strong player in market
Durable consumer goods

ConsFocused on stock price
Bad quality products
Brain drain

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on ROI over a long term. Your horizon should be 10 years at least.

And promotions are wrong: advertising is not using modern channels.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Overall it was rewarding, I gained a lot of knowledge.

Store Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Hanesbrands full-time for more than 8 years

ProsI really enjoyed the customers and it was very rewarding to help people. For the most part I had an amazing staff.

ConsTo many policies and procedures that get made up as someone feel like it should be different. Company requires to much out of staff for what they get paid. They don't help you when you get you are short staffed. If you enjoy working 65+ hours (not getting paid for it), not being able to hold a staff down due to too many qualifications for the positions and not enough pay for the ones with the qualifications. The quality of the product has really gotten worse over the years.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe grateful for what you have and quit adding more stores, untill you can get the stores you already have on track. Every store is different, you can't base everything off of a super store. I strongly think Hanesbrands should go on the Undercover Boss show, they would really see that they have dedicated employees that go over and beyond and want the company to succeed.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
