No loyalty to Management
Store Manager (Current Employee), Washington, PAFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: working with customers
Cons: hours you have to put in
Typical hours put in a week 44.5. At time I would put in over 70 a week. They don't give raises after 2 years, they believe you have learned everything you need to know, but we are always having new training. Co workers are there for a job and that is it. They can care less about the goals that needed to be met. They don't do any more then they have – more... to or go out of their way to help with projects. Hardest part of job is all the training for new employees and all the paper work. It is worse than buying a house or car. The most enjoyable part was working with the customers. You always have one that is just not a happy person but the ones that appreciate your help make it worth wild. – less

Hard Work, Temp Job

Pros: hours

Long hours and hard work but it is only a temp job. Wouldn't recommend unless you like to work hard and worry about losing it soon.

Not family friendly!
Paralegal (Former Employee), Winston-Salem, NCSeptember 9, 2013
Pros: decent atmosphere
Cons: strict attendance policy with absolutely no flexibility.
Very disappointed to find that upper management frowns on flexible work schedules. I had to fight to meet the needs of my young children while working at Hbi. No exceptions were allowed.

Working at headquarters was disappointing. Managers care less about your overall work product as long as you're at your desk from 8-5, regardless of whether you have – more... work to keep you busy. Very antiquated values. Manager was in and out of the office constantly, not dependable. – less

A great company to work for.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Monroe, MIAugust 5, 2013
They are very flexable with schedules. They are alright with pay. The manager was the best manager I know. The hardest part of working retail is the customer is always right. Headquarters does not deal with the customers directly, and they don't always understand what it is like to be in the stores. They try...but don't always get it right.

It was a wonderful place to work, and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Project Administrator (Former Employee), Winston-Salem, NCMay 8, 2013
Pros: all of our annual merchandise sales, tickets to numerous events, company picnics, free coffee/tea, t-shirt giveaways, united way events.
Cons: i cant think of any. "sorry".
I was initially hired as a Temporary worker when the Company was Sara Lee Corporation. I eventually was hired on full time and it was the beginning of a wonderful adventure. I was promoted twice during my tenure and was offered opportunities to travel and train associates at one of our facilities in Weston, Fl. that eventually shut down. Hanesbrands – more... became a private company with many changes to come. I survived many cutbacks and downsizing until I was affected by a restructuring within the company in April of 2012. I enjoyed working for Sara Lee/Hanesbrands, during my 17 year tenure. I had the best co-workers, who I sorely miss. I enjoyed my job, and being able to resolve issues on any given day, and by being part of an organization that is such a powerful Brand. I knew my job inside out, and I cannot truly say that there was anything that was really hard. We all encounter difficulties at some time, but we try to navigate through them, and move on to the next problem. I was very proud to be part of a Company that values its employees and is such a giant when it comes to Corporate innovation. – less

Hard work but paid off
Packaging Operator (Former Employee), Clarksville, ARApril 20, 2013
Pros: paid for breaks
Cons: repetitive and exhausting work
Work was very repetitive and doing it for 40 hours a week was exhausting, but in the end it was very rewarding because I was making decent money and providing for my family when they needed it. It was very hard to associate with anyone because of the loud noise from the machinery and we practically had to yell at each other to have a decent conversation. – more... But what I was there for was not to socialize but to do my job and do it the right and safe way. – less

I Hope Other Locations Are Better
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Auburn Hills, MIMarch 7, 2013
Pros: decent pay.
Cons: unstable hours, insufficient breaks, horrible management
The Great Lakes Crossing store was a totally horrible place to work. I have gone to other locations and they did seem nicer, at least as a customer. At this store, though, the management is really rude and disrespectful to employees and customers. There was a pattern of the store management deciding they didn't like associates and making up things to – more... guarantee the termination of their employment (providing incorrect instruction to associates on register policies on purpose, keeping employee entrance locked so associates couldn't clock in on time). Two associates in an all-female store were fired in less than a year for claims of sexual harassment and one was fired because sickness led to some minor tardies (as defined by reasonable companies: less than three minutes). Human Resources was no help to these employees. The claims of sexual harassment were never investigated. The girls who were supposed to have harassed others were never asked for their side of the story. At different times, associates contacted the district manager or human resources to say they were worried about the way the store was being run. Not only were these concerns not looked in to, every employee who contacted HR was fired. It was a super hostile environment. The hardest part of the job was feeling like being constantly attacked and berated by other employees. The store had a hard time keeping employees because everybody was miserable.

The store manager has all employees sign a lunch break waiver, saying that instead of receiving a full lunch break during the day, employees receive between a ten minute break. Associates supposedly could clock out for thirty minutes if they chose, but the manager would bully them into not doing so. Associates are hired for 10-12 hours a week, but the turnover rate is so high that the store is usually understaffed, so more hours are usually given. Sadly, this means the manager is unwilling to work well with second jobs, especially when she decides she doesn't like you and is working to push you out of the store. One girl had been getting like five hours a week, so she got a second job. The manager then started scheduling her for four hour midshifts five to six days a week so it was impossible for her to work the other job.
The customers were usually really nice, even though bra shopping is so stressful. Customers were probably the best part of the job. And I did learn a lot working at this store. I learned exactly what type of manager I never want to become; I learned a lot about customer service by watching horrible examples of what not to do; I overall learned how to not treat other human beings. – less

Sales Consultant- Liaison (Former Employee), Nashville, TNFebruary 24, 2013
A typical day at work is dealing with a lot of customers and sometimes more than one. I learned how to deal with angry, and happy customers. I also learned to run the cash register and stock merchandise.

Great management team and employees!
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Cabazon, CAJanuary 19, 2013
Pros: co-workers are great!
Cons: short breaks without being able to leave the store unless you clock out.
HanesBrands Inc. in Cabazon, CA can be a very fast paced place to work on some days. It is located in an outlet mall that is a tourist hot spot. Everyday we are faced with tourist from out of the country who either speak very little English or none at all, and we still have to make sure we provide them with the best customer service possible. I have – more... learned to be very patient with customers and take my time listening to them as well as being able to explain things in a way they may understand. The management team here is great. They are very understanding and very professional. It is clear why they were promoted to be managers. All of the co-workers are a blast to work with as well. The hardest part of the job would probably be having to work through all of the different language barriers throughout the day. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be all of the employees. They are so fun to work with that there is no reason to NOT like to be there. – less

Engergetic Work Enviroment
Manager (Current Employee), Matawan, NJJuly 27, 2012
A fun enjoyable work place that not only let's each and every employee be themselves but you get to help customers in your own way. Working hands on with customers is the best part of my day. You get to meet new people one on one and get to hopefully let them leave the store with a product they want and a smile on their face. Managing a store of ten – more... plus employees is not always easy but you have to be able to balance everyones wants and needs, and be able to deligate what needs to be done on a daily basis to each employee. I have learned along the way that there is no way you can please each and every person but you have to do the best that you can do, each and everyday. – less
