    Great Company, Lacking Staff

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company is awesome to work for. District management is fair and direct, communication from corporate offices is timely and clear. Its a very laid back company as far as retail goes, but still professional.

    ConsIn store communication is very poor; great systems put in place by corporate are not followed through or communicated to staff. Frequently changing policies creates tension and stress with goals that are already difficult to meet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your staff

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I learned how to be good at retail and customer service.

    Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee)
    Gettysburg, PA

    ProsEnjoyed interacting with the customers and their kids. Product knowledge helped to sell the clothing. Enjoyed getting the employee discount even on top of the sale prices.

    ConsDistrict manager not involved enough with the day to day happenings in the stores. Should visit more often to give feedback on what to continue doing well and what needs changed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more hourly

    Assistant store manager

    Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee)
    Carle Place, NY

    ProsBenefits, team, discount! Promotions, compensation

    ConsNothing really bad about this company everything is to be expected

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat place to work Carter's is a great company. The company feels like a family, my team was great it's not a hard place to work and because of the prices being so great they have great loyal customers. The work/life balance is good, my store hours were great, they are upon the technology, emailing upper management and computerized scheduling, their pos systems are good, return policy is great, managers communicate with staff well, back room organized and big, bathroom for customers to change kids is rare in stores that aren't department store Carter's understand that it's a kids store

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    good job if you are management

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    Prosflexible schedule, decent discount because you can use it on clearance, good pay if you are mgt or above, that's about it really.

    ConsThey don't spend enough on payroll, so the expectation is nothing close to reality. No work/life balance, have a training program that is good, but because you are always running on to little payroll it isn't really effectively used. underpaid associates with no hours to give out so it's hard to keep good staff. every year they have a new training focus so they layer on more unrealistic expectations. They overwork the mgt, and under work the staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your talent. Benefit your full mgt staff. When you have cooperate visits they need to see the real story, not the dog and pony show you put on.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Working towards re-growth and re-establishment of a great brand.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNew direction from upper management that seem to welcome more ideas and opportunities for growth. Great people to work with. Good benefits.

    ConsSometimes difficult extended hours. Difficultly working with other parts of the business groups who are located in other states. Lack of solid, visible efforts to promote from within, before going outside the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in better communication and information transferring system. There are so many companies that run "international / multi-state" companies that manage cross-functional teams that can pass information smoother and faster than they do at OshKosh. Invest time looking for and encouraging current employees to apply open positions before looking outside the company.
