    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Carhartt full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People come first here. The belief is that if the company takes care of its own, its employees will take care of its consumers. All of the higher-ups I've come into contact with (including Mark Valade) have been willing to listen to any feedback, positive or constructive. The company is always striving to improve in many different areas of business.

    Cons

    Despite the company's efforts to improve, many if not most tasks become incredibly difficult and/or time-consuming when systems fail. Being consumer-facing, this can lead to inordinate stress for my team. We have aggressive sales goals, but we are constantly held back from blowing them out of the water by bad infrastructure. Our business seems to be outgrowing our current structure and I don't believe we are responding well to those needs.
