    I have been working at Hanesbrands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been with Hanesbrands a little over a year working at their corporate office in North Carolina. I began my career at Hanesbrands as a temporary employee and was hired on full time after only 3 months. Hanesbrands has a positive culture and promotes personal growth offering numerous courses on campus focused on improving technical skills as well as soft skills. Tuition reimbursement is also offered if you are looking...

    I have been working at Hanesbrands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pretty laid back work environment. Employees are pretty nice and helpful. Insurance is decent if you need LBGTQ++ related coverage.

    Cons

    No value to loyalty, no matter how long you work there, you could work there twenty years and get paid the same as the guy who just got out of training. Upper management won't tell you anything. So don't count on having trust.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more that includes what they know and their loyalty. Honesty is the best policy it would help reduce the drama if they told us what's going on.

    Pros

    Very understanding , they take interest in all the employees. Always roo. To move up the ladder. I went from customer associate to key carrier, then assistant manager finally to store manager. Able to have interaction with the CEO of the company.

    Cons

    District managers sometimes test patience

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to pay attention to sales associate's up to managers. Without the people on the floor selling for the company there wouldn't, be a company. When choosing candidates for employment Ask for input and ideas from employees .

    I have been working at Hanesbrands full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great brands and good shopping discount. Excellent commitment to the Winston Salem community with United Way events and Hanesbrands theatre.

    Cons

    The only thing that counts is hitting your numbers. The culture at HQ is toxic and there is no focus on personal growth. Most talented people work a few short years to get strong brand experience and then move on to companies that have a pleasant work environment. Focus on diversity is just lip service.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your leaders aren’t dismissive of or insensitive to all levels of employees.

    I have been working at Hanesbrands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co workers are nice . Good 401k

    Cons

    Bad behavior in upper management is rewarded. Problematic terms like “urban” are tossed around and rap music is blasted during sales presentations a prop. They are constantly marketing to POC but have few on the team an 0 in management roles. There is no work life balance and wanting to have one is frowned upon.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as assets and allow them to grow. Take and adhere to some sort of bias training
