    I have been working at Hanesbrands part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent discount and an environment that will really teach you how to handle difficult customers and work quickly.

    Cons

    Staff is incredibly hypocritical. My manager can do whatever she wants but if anybody else does the same they are punished. She gives random discounts to customers without approval of corporate. Upper management will cover for one another. For example my assistant manager is getting a write up and should be fired because of the amount of write ups she has already received. Rather than fire her upper management erases her previous write ups from her file so she can stay. If management doesn't like you then you will have a tough time at Hanesbrands. Thankfully they like me but you need to stay on their good side. Also they are very critical if you need time off and it can be hard to switch shifts. Overall, this is not a good place to work because regional and store managers will look the other way when injustices are occurring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing by favorites and hiding in the break room. Also stop covering for one another and trying to pin your mistakes on sales associates.

    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule. Everyone I worked with was very friendly. They work with you on getting time off for what ever you need. Very easy to get promoted.

    Cons

    Very strict dress code. The environment turned into a high-school like environment after everyone got too comfortable with each other. Training course is long. Wasn't paid enough for what I had to do 90% of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better, especially key holders and stockers.

    Pros

    the environment is great the company supports and takes every thing you say to heart. so if you have a concern about something and you want a investigation done about it you don't have to be upper management you can be just an associate. plus even as an associate you get a 401k and stokes. and they reward you for all hard work your a person to them not just another number.

    Cons

    now the only annoying thing is that on a store front you only have two colors your allowed to wear black and white and no in between colors. You must always be in business attire so no canvas shoes nor tie up shoes dress shoes only. Their late palsy is extremely strict they run off a point system points are bad get many and your gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some of the upper management needs to be in the stores more so you'll stop righting people up for one thing being out of place and when some one ask for a new thing because the other one broke try and fix it ones then send them it.
