    I worked at Dickies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good hours, cafeteria onsite, secured parking

    Cons

    There are many old employees that are paid way too much for what they are doing. They do not like to accommodate disabled people and will fire you for any reason to keep from having the added expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sitting in your offices acting like you are doing something. Respect your employees and reward them every now and then, even if it is just pizza. Bring the factories back to the Usa instead of Shanghai

    I have been working at Dickies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Environment is changing with new talent and ideas. Moving to new ERP and new HR teams. Have some great new leaders that know how to make this a flexible well run business.

    Cons

    Moving away from the old stuff. Some people will resist but most welcome change. But change is just starting. After 2017 it will be good to see where they end up

    Advice to Management

    Add personality to the company. Be aggressive in advertising a personality and showing it at work. Update the work environment to tailor to a company serving the working man. Not just a bunch of white walls and old tires cubes. Every space should have the style of the working man and woman.

    "Worst CPG Company in America / Inapt Leadership with no desire for growth (WALMART TEAM)"

    I worked at Dickies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None. Horrible company with terrible leadership. No desire to improve or grow and will not value any employees opinions. You will be treated like a dog. There is a reason for the extremely high turnover rate and it falls directly on the management. Also, be prepared to work most holidays that 90% of other CPG companies take off including the largest retailer in the world.

    Cons

    You will not receive any training. There is no room to advance within the company and too many people fighting for too little work ( which leads to a very nasty environment). You will be "monitored on the cameras" (seriously, that's weird). You will give monthly presentations that have no relevance to the job. They are just to entertain middle managers with nothing better to do and other analysts who don't gain from learning about your very different account. You're work is not valued by the company and you will be ridiculed for making suggestions. Don't waste your time with this company and look for a company that treats its employees like they deserve and will help you progress in your career. If you have the misfortune of working on the WALMART team with B. Warren or P. Sikes keep a close guard. They are too worried about losing their spot in line and will throw anyone under the bus regardless of the situation. There are so many opportunities out there than to take one working for miserable people that try their hardest to make you miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Change your strategy and leadership. Invest in your people and treat them right. If you want to grow your company in a significant way then you have to invest in your people rather than treating them like animals. You have people in leadership roles that have no business managing anything. As far as business outlook; if you expect to keep doing the same things because "that's the way you've always done them", good luck. You will continue to decline.

    I have been working at Dickies full-time

    Pros

    Was a high paying job. Now others companies get paid the same starting off a job and withing 2 years they will get paid more than Dickies.

    Cons

    Work hard and get paid 12-30 cents extra. Work less and get 25-40 cents more. Cause the ones that work less need more motivation to work.

    Advice to Management

    If your working and showing the company that you can exceed all your task with no help. Well give him/her at least a better pay. And not reward the ones that work less more pay. And tell them I gave you a higher pay so help me out since I helped you.

    Pros

    Good wage for entry level, steady work

    Cons

    Management needs more training because they are very overwhelmed and unable to deal with stress. Non climate controlled. Job title misrepresented at times.

    Advice to Management

    The management needs to either be replaced, or a week or two of nothing but training, which leads me to believe that they shouldn't be in management at all. They get angry and explode and over react at the most ridiculous thing. In fact I should be managing them instead because they are not up to par.

    Pleasant environment, wonderful group to work with and show your talents.It was a wonderful place to work, and a wonderful learning experience!

    The down time, and lack of work. Sometimes i had to go days without work, also no room for advancement.

    Pros

    It had good work environment.

    Cons

    But not so good pay...

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to pay them more. They have lives and families they have to care for and 9-10 dollars an hour is not enough to support a single person much less a family.

    I have been working at Dickies (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Family run business
    - Well known brand
    - Probably competitive pay for apparel-specific job functions (designer, merchandiser, etc.)

    Cons

    - Pay on middle to low scale for broad company functions (HR, Finance, Marketing)
    - Only 10 vacation days for the year until 5 year mark
    - Archaic attendance policy for salaried employees
    - Very traditional dress code (and enforcement)
    - Not much training or investing in your career, your essentially a stop on the assembly line
    - NEW: Summer Hours Program, only this company can take a perk of flexible hours on Friday afternoon and turn it into a burden

    Advice to Management

    Basic advice would be to stop letting HR dictate every ounce of the employee culture (or complete lack of). Modernize your business and make this an interesting/fun place to work. Positive culture could yield positive growth and a whole host of other benefits.
