    I have been working at GTM Sportswear full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity to dip your toes into a more company setting. Casual clothing every day of the week is awesome.

    Cons

    Company has been through some hard times, communication between departments is an issue. Not everyone is on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    #communication is your biggest priority, also making sure that the employees who have shown their loyalty are rewarded for it.

    I worked at GTM Sportswear full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free health clinic on site. Relaxed dress code. Awesome co-workers. Good Values.

    Cons

    No sense of job security. No work/life balance. Upper management has a lot of closed door meetings. At one point we were on hold with vendors because we couldn't pay them, but management told us we were on "back order" with these vendors. A lot of great reps have left because they are unsure about their job outlook even when you're on top. No communication between sales and production on both ends. Unrealistic goals and bonus program. No consistency.

    Advice to Management

    Be true to your word you give your employees. Be open and honest about things that go on inside the company so we gain your trust back. You can "lick your wounds" and "be on the rebound" like managers have written these crappy reviews, but you aren't anything with a high turnover rate.

    Pros

    Mending some wounds, owner has made some big moves to advance the company. Rising stock, rising capital, and rising stars. Good place again, and a fresh new outlook. Been there years and years, and years, doesn't look to be going away anytime soon.

    Cons

    Who doesn't take a beating and get back into the ring? GTM does, and remains the heavyweight champion!

    Advice to Management

    Going strong, getting stronger. Great job in a tough round of hits, bruises, and below the belt sucker punches. Keep on fighting, determination and dedication have won the battle!

    I worked at GTM Sportswear (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Zero. Zlitch. Nada. None. Lack of all things positive!

    Cons

    Most employees will be hired on to the production floor and the management of said floor is hurrendous! Talking down to you, rolling their eyes when having a conversation, complete and utter favortisim. And a whole load of other wonderful things. Trust me this company is a sinking ship that you do not want to go down with. Stay far far away. And if you do work here, don't open your mouth or have opinions.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone in management and start over. Production management is awful and should never have been put in charge of people!

    Licking it's wounds, but still a great place to work.

    Pros

    Humble people who own that 2014 was awful. They were honest when hiring me that they are on the rebound, but it was a hard bounce. Constant coaching and advancement opportunities. They don't have the lowest prices, so they know that service has to be awesome. Most of the managers and supervisors worked their way up, they've earned my respect. Free Genesis Membership. Discounts at Coco Bolos, Cox Brothers, Powercat Grill, Firestone, Freddy's and other places around town. Free on site Health Clinic for immediate family.

    Cons

    Needs a PR makeover. Lots of customers are having a hard time trusting us after last year's fall. Software is kinda glitchy, but improving. Still more reliable than some retailers. They seem to hire cute young blondes...and it's mostly done over the phone.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your employees. Help us set reasonable goals, and push us to attain them. Keep up the Shout Out program

    Fast paced, mostly great people, good benefits

    Cons

    Management doesn't have a clear vision, lack of trust in the leadership, trying to do too much too fast, not always honest about company status with employees

    Advice to Management

    Be honest. Treat your employees with respect. Give them what they deserve for the years of service.

    Pros

    The company is becoming more and more innovative with their uniforms and decoration options. They are very price competitive and a pretty laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    If you are not from Manhattan, went to school from Manhattan or work in their corporate office, you are not fully considered on certain situations. I looked at it as a fraternity because there would be times where people only on the inside came first instead of listening to other on the outside. If you had the connection, you got the job, even if you weren't fully qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees who are out in the field.
