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

    Pros

    Overall, I think very highly of GTM. It's a pretty friendly environment. Easy place to work, nice people, the work is not difficult by any means.

    Cons

    Not exactly a long term position. Great for college students. Moving up in the company isn't easy, especially when they have already determined your place in the company.

    Great benefits... Free gym memberships, on site health clinic that is free. Relaxed atmosphere and everyone seems to help each other.

    Cons

    Direction changes often, may be due to the owner.

    Continue to listen to your employees.

    I have been working at GTM Sportswear full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced and fun environment for people that are fast paced and fun. Free medical clinic for employees, and spouses and children. Employee scholarship program. Awesome medical coverage, 401k matching, paid vacation. Employee emergency assistance fund. I work with great friends.

    Cons

    Management had growing pains, made some wrong moves with good intentions regarding personnel and inventory that were magnified by the recession and changes in the market. Entry level positions have entry level pay, but some people don't include the cost of their benefits. High turnover rate of external executives and sales reps has been an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Welcome back Dave!

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay!
    Excellent opportunities for growth! Many of my co-workers have been promoted from entry level jobs which is encouraging to see.
    Team members are willing to go the extra mile to help one another which makes coming to work enjoyable!
    Most of the managers and supervisors that I work with are friendly, you can tell they Care!

    Cons

    Because of the seasonality of our work, many of the operational positions are temporary. Although most of the seasonal workers are retained at the end of the season, its sad to see some go.

    Pros

    This company is continuously looking for ways to be and do better, and employees are able to give ideas and take part in implementing new ideas, process, and projects. There are several ways we are able to express our ideas, and with so many helpful and just as eager people in other departments it makes it fun to try something new. The opportunities for growth are endless provided you go get them! I also appreciate the free on site health clinic and free gym membership.

    Cons

    The new and updated software system has been a little tough to get used to, but we are starting to see how it will give us better results and reporting, and the possibilities to do more later down the road.

    Advice to Management

    We know you all care about us and the company, thank you for everything you do to help.

    Pros

    Fair pay, great benefits - health care, profit sharing, 401k plan, free membership at local gym and discounts at some local restaurants.

    Cons

    Super fast past during busy season and a lot of seasonal workers coming and going. First shift starts a little early, at 7am but you get off at 3pm so that's nice.

    Pros

    Humble people who own that 2014 was awful. They were honest when hiring me that they are on the rebound, but it was a hard bounce. Constant coaching and advancement opportunities. They don't have the lowest prices, so they know that service has to be awesome.

    Most of the managers and supervisors worked their way up, they've earned my respect.

    Free Genesis Membership. Discounts at Coco Bolos, Cox Brothers, Powercat Grill, Firestone, Freddy's and other places around town. Free on site Health Clinic for immediate family.

    Cons

    Needs a PR makeover. Lots of customers are having a hard time trusting us after last year's fall. Software is kinda glitchy, but improving. Still more reliable than some retailers. They seem to hire cute young blondes...and it's mostly done over the phone.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your employees. Help us set reasonable goals, and push us to attain them. Keep up the Shout Out program

    Pros

    Mending some wounds, owner has made some big moves to advance the company. Rising stock, rising capital, and rising stars. Good place again, and a fresh new outlook. Been there years and years, and years, doesn't look to be going away anytime soon.

    Cons

    Who doesn't take a beating and get back into the ring? GTM does, and remains the heavyweight champion!

    Advice to Management

    Going strong, getting stronger. Great job in a tough round of hits, bruises, and below the belt sucker punches. Keep on fighting, determination and dedication have won the battle!
