    I absolutely love my job at Carter’s! I am able to have a work life balance, get paid hourly, treated with respect...best company I have worked for, since Sephora.

    Tight payroll and background checks seem to take a very long time in our state.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I worked at Carter's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, friendly coworkers, free parking, gym in building, new building.

    Cons

    HR is creating a toxic work environment - and they run the place; depending on your department, management can be terrible and don't count on HR to help out much with that - they're too busy forcing you to celebrate for the camera (they're always filming "happy" employees) and forcing the attendance of that god-forsaken Development Day and any other event they dream up during the year - NOTHING is voluntary. Dealing with them was 1,000 times more stressful than my actual job.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on that HR crew - unless you're just looking for picture-taking, cupcake flinging, bossy cheerleader, fake-ness. As far as functioning as a traditional HR group (you know, solving conflicts or improving office moral...that stuff) they are terrible.

    Pros

    You get a discount. Which really isn’t much only 25%. Customers get that. Nice workers, company donates missing clothing pieces to children in need. Small store. Overall easy job

    Cons

    Bi-weekly pay. Hardly any hours. 8 hours a week if you are part time, sometimes 4.

    Advice to Management

    Workers should be paid weekly. Find a way people can actually make a decent pay check. Only full time employees get hours that’s not right. Plus you guys keep hiring which is taking away from people who already barely get hours.

    I worked at Carter's full-time

    Pros

    Nice office space, free sodas, and decent pay

    Cons

    Overall leadership is lacking and the benefits are not the best. A number of co-workers had HR issues that were not addressed correctly. In a lot of ways this company is still a "good-old boys" club.

    This company did not invest well in the people. Limited training and learning opportunities.

    Awesome place to work nothing bad to say
