    Pros

    Good training ground for sales people.

    Cons

    Pay is benchmarked off Winston-Salem salaries, so can be a disconnect when working in a satelite office.

    Pros

    Pretty good work life balance depending on your manager.
    The people are very nice and genuine for a large fortune 500 corporation.
    The pay is competitive with other COGs.

    Cons

    There is little to no career development.
    Senior management has reduced the workforce so everyone has to carry a larger load but they have made very little investments to improve internal systems and processes to make management of the business easier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Hanesbrands has the potential to be a company that is highly sought after to work for because it is based in the south where hospitality still exists and it is very affordable and relatively close to the Appalachian mountains and the pristine North Carolina beaches.

    The benefits are pretty good but I would like to see Senior Management make an effort to become one of the top 100 places to work. The company is already 80% of the way there but if they stepped up their investment into their employees, talent acquisition and employee retention would improve and most importantly employee moral would get better.

    Pros

    If you work at a regular store, and not a megastore, you have a small staff, so you become like family. You can also receive a quarterly bonus if your store makes target or maximum sales goals. You can promote to a low management position quickly.

    Cons

    Low starting salary, high turn-over, not enough openings for store management positions, distance between other locations. Also, you and your staff are responsible for small odd-jobs, for which you do not receive compensation (repairing light fixtures, etc.). You do not receive holiday pay unless you are a full-time employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer holiday pay, make promotions more attainable, and offer a better starting wage.

    Good learning experience working at an apparel leader, but skeleton staff and limited resources make it difficult.

    Pros

    Results oriented company with high performing stock

    Cons

    Mandatory summer hours and winter break requiring employees to take a week of vacation between Christmas and New Year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in appropriate resources to avoid diminishing returns that result from overloading employees.
