    Former Employee - Key Holder in Howell, MI

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule. Everyone I worked with was very friendly. They work with you on getting time off for what ever you need. Very easy to get promoted.

    Cons

    Very strict dress code. The environment turned into a high-school like environment after everyone got too comfortable with each other. Training course is long. Wasn't paid enough for what I had to do 90% of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better, especially key holders and stockers.

    Former Employee - Director, Sales  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Director, Sales in New York, NY

    Pros

    Good company culture
    Fair policies and procedures
    Hard working but not over the top hours
    Fridays OFF from Memorial Day thru Labor Day (work 40 hrs in 4 days) - GREAT!
    Good products at a great low price
    Products that are good value and well made.
    Seem to pay pretty well amongst the market

    Cons

    Not enough HR representation in the two NYC offices. As they are based in Winston-Salem.
    Offices in NYC are not that big so growth inside the company is not really possible with most areas
    Fast to hire freelance / reluctant to ever add to staff

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, good benefits. Beautiful office campus with a lake and walking trails, free clinic on site and a workout gym. Nice people work here for the most part.

    Cons

    Small cubicles for office space allows for little privacy, but I've gotten used to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Listen to employees

    Pros

    Supportive leadership
    Decent pay as temp
    Good work environment
    Smart coworkers
    Good team environment
    Supportive atmosphere
    Genuine desire for constant improvement

    Cons

    No benefits as temp
    No career advancement
    Outdated software and processes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you've got a temp who provides value, bring them on and make them feel like part of the team instead of being on the outside looking in. They'll be more loyal and do a better job.

    Pros

    Hanesbrands provides excellent training for their employees. The benefits are outstanding and the people who work there are very passionate about what they do.

    Cons

    They need to do more hiring from within. Lower starting pay than other companies. The work load feels to heavy to complete at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to inspire your employees through a balance of work and family life.
