    Pros

    Family owned, slower paced environment and very stable business. Great benefits, flexible working environment and relatively laid back. Not a whole lot of rapid change- which can be a pro or a con.

    Cons

    There is a significant number of under performers who get a pass simply because they’ve been around forever. Although never explicitly communicated, you will have to compensate for their shortcomings if you want to move things forward.

    Advice to Management

    Stop holding the younger and older generations to separate standards.

    Pros

    Not many to speak of. If your looking to apply here? Do yourself a favor and move on. Not a great place to work.

    Cons

    Hours got cut. Management treats us like children. Lots of redundancy in the job. Management is not very good to work for. Limited benefits for sales associates

    It's like a family.

    Pros

    Good perks , good lunch, great buys.

    Cons

    Promotions to most liked and their relations. Sr management talks down...excuse me, or doesn't acknowledge staff at all, as they pass you by...footsteps on your back.

    Advice to Management

    Why hire experts, you search out the best, woo them in and hire them, and then don't listen to them.

    "Leadership Team"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Carhartt full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Significant cost savings on merchandise and you get to wear the clothes to work e

    Cons

    Leadership Team is crippling this organization. Incompetent leadership starting at the director’s level going up. Abusive behavior such as demeaning or belittling employees by some leadership seems allowed by the CEO, HR and top management due to their relationships outside of work. There is favoritism everywhere! No Work Life Balance!! You are expected to answer emails all hours of the day/night to include weekends. Your dedication and hard work is not noticed unless you are one of the chosen ones. Same thing with employee recognition, there won’t be any unless you are in their click!!

    Advice to Management

    Get Rid of the Trouble Makers and Stop Playing Favoritism!! Make them accountable on how they treat others oppose to brushing underneath the carpet!
