    Pros

    Most if not all the supervisors are good hard working people. They work with everyone as far as what most places get rid of you over. Its a fairly calm environment. Almost like a family.

    Cons

    I actually don't have too much to complain about... Like i said its a decent place to work.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Gildan Activewear full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Charleston location of Gildan puts you in one of the best cities in the countries. The job is a secure one and they offer decent benefits.

    Cons

    The is little room for career advancement and no performance incentives. The Charleston location has recently consolidated and acquired a new brand, so the company culture is not defined yet.

    I worked at Gildan Activewear full-time

    Pros

    - strong ethical values - great CEO - intelligent executives - the complex and vertically-chained orientation of the business structure allows for a challenging work experience (never boring)

    Cons

    - a little disorganized for its size due to its recent rapid expansion - controls are also a little too tight for it's size, feels like a family-owned enterprise sometimes
