Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Winston-Salem, NC
Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Winston-Salem, NC

I have been working at Hanesbrands full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Fun brands to work on, summer hours (every friday off) is a good bonus.

Cons

Promotions/pay not based on talent, more based on good ole boy network. Employees who do little in actual work but devote time to social causes promoted by company get rewarded over those who are talented and carry the load.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop promotions based on nepotism/other agendas and reward the employees doing the work.

    Pros

    Good place to start out of business school. Networking is crucial in helping you get noticed and get the good assignments.

    Cons

    Hard work alone will not be enough. You must socialize with the right people. The apparel industry is a tough industry, but if you can make it through the layoffs, you will get a good experience with a top paying job in the area.

    I worked at Hanesbrands as a contractor (less than a year)

    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    Outdated software and processes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.
