  3. "Good company culture, but lacks IT advancement opportunities unless you work here for 10-15+ years"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I have been working at Hanesbrands

    Pros

    Summer Hours (half day Fridays during the summer months) Unlimited sick leave Company sample sales (Champion, Ralph Lauren Polo, NCAA/NHL) Very diverse company!

    Cons

    Even though directors and VPs sit on the same floor as regular employees, doesn’t mean they have an open door policy as they may display. It’s very tough to matriculate up the managerial ladder in IT. They will just increase your position level without any increase in responsibilities. Hanes has a very old mindset to work culture. A millennial hiring rush was implemented to bring in newer, younger talent for the aging employees, some been here since the Sara Lee days. However, the lack of development or lower salaries, has forced millennials to leave and seek for better wage compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Value more of you younger employees, for which they are the future of your company.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Hanesbrands full-time

    Pros

    Hanes pays well and the cost of living in WS is not too high.

    Cons

    Next to impossible to be promoted. You are only bonus eligible as a Sr. Manager or above but the company hardly ever meets its goals so you never make bonus and they don’t give annual cost of living increases. Sr/Executive Management are not people centric. Company culture is very out dated.

    I worked at Hanesbrands part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you like working retail this is for you.

    Cons

    If you do not like working retail, this is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop threatening to write up employees if they do not go up to customers every 5 minutes. It is like harassment. Makes people uncomfortable.

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

    Pros

    Very supportive team and everyone at the company has been wonderful to work with. Lots of fun employee events onsite. Cafeteria, medical clinic, and fitness center onsite. Great brands. Environmentally-conscious company. Very good medical insurance through Cigna.

    Cons

    The company should be more open to allowing flexible work arrangements and the ability to work from home as needed. There could also be more awareness of a healthy work/life balance. Many employees are consumed day and night with the workload. The vacation policy could also be a little more generous.
