I worked at Carter's full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Carter's is constantly trying to better their employees, hence also bettering the company. Everyone is HR is very friendly and fixes all issues in a timely manner.

Pro to my Con: Carter's has a carters cares line that you can call to complain anonymously at any time. You can also speak with some one in the HR department who will truly follow up on any issues you have and try their best to resolve them!

Last but not least if you are pregnant and give birth while employed they send you a box full of things from clothe, hats, blankets, bibs, to socks. Its amazing.

If you are in a manager position you are offered full benefits.

Cons

The particular store I managed had a store manager who was very unorganized making work unpleasant and hard to deal with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay on top of store managers who don't seem up to par.

    I have been working at Carter's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -The people. Corporate, Peers, associates and customers.
    -Flexible with schedules and requests off
    -Tools provided to advance training
    -Celebration of outstanding employees
    -Customer relationships!

    Cons

    -Lots of movement, training and marketing changes with minimal extra payroll if any given.
    -Visual hiccups in corporate
    -Marketing issues (cut back your expenses spent in that field)!
    -Freight overload. It feels like the distribution is off for three days then packs hundreds of boxes to flow it out to stores. Trickle it into store 5 days a week.
    -Opportunities diminish once you are at Store Manager Level.
    -Your district manager will make your career flourish with the right opportunities (it all comes down if your DM is a "people driven" boss)
    -Salary. At least 15-20% less than other competitors yearly.
    -Bonus Incentives are very hard to achieve. 30% comp in the month of January? Really?
    -Health insurance price is crazy high! At least $450 per month.
    -Yearly raises are not even 1% raise, even when EE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example. Visit your stores and ASK your Store manager what they want to be in a 1-5 years.
