    Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate 

    I worked at Carter's full-time

    Pros

    Loved the management. Your hours are never guaranteed but its a perfect job for someone who has to be a full time student. Discounts on all three brands and your hours will expand a lot during the holidays.

    Cons

    Holidays can get pretty hectic with so many customers and crazy hours during Black Friday. Personally I loved the rush of it but I know not everyone will.
