Co workers were awesome people!
Puller (Former Employee), Pharr, TXFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: christmas break! co workers!
Cons: short breaks! not enough lunch time! bad management!
sinces thIs company is in south Texas we get cheap pay for what we do! People from Kansas which is were the company is from ,get paid double what we get paid! The IC (inventory control) "crew" don't do nothing! People that are pullers,replunishers,ect basically do there job! HR manager never tells them anything it's just pure favoritism! Never fails that they find any little thing to not give you your raise! Was at 100% on efficiency for 8 weeks (which they said you'll get a raise from) if your consistent! Yet they would make it a big deal and not give it to you! Plus now there's hardly work and one shift gets more hours than others and it's just totally not fair for everyone ! Overall this is a bad bad company! No good what's so ever ! Worked there for couple years,still didn't appreciate nothing what's so ever!

This place doesn't appreciate the hard work people put in. The pay is terrible, you barely get any vacation time and they don't promote from within.

Credit Specialist (Former Employee), Lenexa, KSSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: very nice atmosphere. great benefits
Cons: hbi. they changed the company.
I would help with returns and write up credits for non-returnable products. Data entry, filing. I learned a lot about returns and the process. The credit manager was AWESOME. My co-workers were fun and willing to help as needed. The hardest part of the job was the busy seasons. Very stressful. The most enjoyable part was the community out reach programs.

Awesome workplace with amazing coworkers
Graphic Artist (Current Employee), Lenexa, KSSeptember 16, 2014
The people you work with makes up the company. It's a really good place to get your foot in the door and get to know people. A typical day at work consists of creating new arts per customer's orders, proofing coworker's art to ensure quality of design, interacting with customers and sales reps to create the perfect design for them. I've learned so much just working there for over two years. We've learned how to prep files for the screen print press and knowing what can be printed and what can't. The job isn't very challenging until you get a request that just won't work as a design or it won't print well. We have to deal with a number of hard designs, either custom build logos or the customer sent in something that we would just have to be creative with and make it look good. The job is very satisfying though when you see your design printed or you see someone in the streets wearing what you created. The people are amazing and you make life-long friends there.

rude people lousy management
Receiver (Former Employee), Pharr, TXSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: good hours.
Cons: poor management and lousy hr + rude people
The HR manager at this place is dating one of the workers, and shows a lot of favoritism towards him and his group of buddies. The job itself is great but extremely low pay for the amount of work that you put in. EVen if you're a great employee inventory control will cherry pick any mistake whether major or minor that you maKe in order to use it against you to make you look bad. Management idiotic they reward theyre poor employees and punish the good ones. Promotions are awarded to those who don't deserve it and are unqualified. Anyone who has worked at the Pharr warehouse knows this is all true. P.s no raises!!!!!

Pros: culture and people
Cons: early mornings
I have been at gear a little over a year now. The culture and people make me look forward to coming to work every day. i work three 12 hour shifts and the time goes by fairly quickly because I always have something to do.from folding to preprice to package garments. They trained me on how to do everything I am supposed to do. we all work as a team

hot and unorganized
Finisher (Former Employee), Lenexa, KSAugust 5, 2013
Pros: no pro"s
Cons: working in so much heat. standing on non padded concrete floors for an entire shift
Gear wasn't air-conditioning. I worked as a finisher who would retrieve garments from an oven, rolling down a converter belt. The hardest part working there was standing on concreted floor without any kind of padding on the floor.
