    I worked at Haggar full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Leadership genuinely cares about the employees. Beautiful corporate culture. Work-life balance. Healthy work environment. Good salaries and benefits. Truly nice people across all departments.

    Cons

    Perhaps too conservative. There's plenty of room for innovation. I can't think of anything else. It's overall a great company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dare to take more risks in order to increase sales and grow. Don't be afraid to innovate.

    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager
    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager

    I worked at Haggar full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Haggar for my first retail job experience. My co-workers were friendly and the customers were generally very nice. Our district manager was also very friendly and encouraging. Our store location won a few little prizes here and there from headquarters which was nice. The district office would buy us lunch on Black Friday weekend and reimbursed for traveling expenses if we had to work in another store. Overall, the experience that I gained at Haggar was good!

    Cons

    Retail hours and working on holidays, but that's how retail is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep treating your staff well!

    Former Employee - Accounts Receivable Analyst in Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Accounts Receivable Analyst in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Haggar full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    When the Haggar family owned it, it was very family oriented. I worked side-by-side with Mr. Haggar's granddaughter. You could walk into the CEO's office and get candy from a huge jar on his table and talk to him about anything. My boss, I left in 2004, still to this day (2/6/2014) calls me on my birthday.

    Cons

    From what I hear, when the family sold the company to outsiders, the family oriented atmosphere dissappeard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really get to know your employees and make them to believe that you really do value their opinions and that they are valued at the company.

    Pros

    The unwavering commitment of the leadership. The positive, friendly, inspiring, collaborative environment. The president and the CEO are doing an amazing job at empowering the people. Employees are energized, motivated, inspired. Lots of employee engagement and a good work/life balance. Comp and benefits are unbeatable. Bonus for all employees in the company.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons. The president Tim Lyons and CEO Michael Stitt are really doing an amazing job overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change a thing. You are doing a terrific job!

    Pros

    Senior Management Listens to the field team and reacts to feedback. They really care about employees and treat everyone like family. Customer service culture is top notch in the industry.

    Cons

    Salaried level employees work a lot more than 40 hours. Too many attempts to try trendy product lines. Overbuying/producing which lead to a need to sell product at or near cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop chasing fringe. Make the best casual clothing in the industry and charge a reasonable price. Pass increased profits on to employees through better salaries and benefits.

    Pros

    Office culture is fantastic. Upper management very centered on being the best company to work for in the Dallas area.
    Excellent work-out facilities and great work-life balance.
    Compensation very good.

    Cons

    Limited personal growth opportunities due to the company size being small.
    Lots of pressure in the job due to the volatile retail industry.
    Resistance to some basic changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some in upper management are still very autocratic and don't value employee's input.
    Stay focused on good ethical business decisions.
    Get input from many in upper management, don't just relay on one source of information.
    Some confidential information has been leaked regarding decisions affecting jobs. This should not happen.
