Working at Gildan was a great cultural experience. There infrastructure and project management system was very organized. My duties were updating their comp cards for their apparel line and catalogs. Editing photos and creating e-blast collateral
Gaining experience to produce work at an international standard
Learned a lot in my role. Worked for a couple really great managers and one not so great.
Forecast Analyst II (Former Employee) – Charleston, SC – November 2, 2018
Large company that does a good job not feeling like a large company. Individual contributions matter. Planning and forecasting are valued. Analytics used effectively to support data-driven decision making.
very fast pace work here for years. alot of ot required here so be prepared for mandatory lasting as long as six months to a year. but if you like to work your life away then this is the place for you. and in doing so the checks will be well for it but still no home life.
Great company to work at for people who gets satisfied with meeting deadlines. HR management is pleasant.Overtime is possible, especially during the holidays and summer. I started as a material handler and worked my way up towards QA.
keep your machines running with out yarn ball up, keeping up with the time to know when each machine will stop and start.. the hardest part of the job is making sure at all times there is no machine stopped and you is responsible to run 2-3 machines at one time. the most important thing about the job is to always work safe and use ppe at all times
My day started at 6 am and went to 3 pm. My job included using a hand held computer wand, and then unpacking pallets of merchandise and then putting the items in the proper bays. It was hard work and at times was extremely busy, but the management was really the best part; they were always appreciative of us all working hard and they generally left you alone to do your job. However, if you needed anything at all they were always there and always helpful.
Gildan was slow at times unless we get a lot of orders than its fast pace and working with the right people make it a great workplace. I hate that I don't work there anymore but I would go back and work for Gildan again.
Job environment was stressful at time. I worked as a sorter operator and being over there means your are by yourself at all times and rarely someone else come over. You can not even go to the bathroom till you are relieved and same thing for breaks, I was late for break one time by 2 hours.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – South Carolina – August 19, 2018
It was a job but it wasn't paying enough and they are shut down now. The lunch break was short you had to eat fast and go right back to work. It was a job but it was just to much to be working and getting little pay.
Analyst (Current Employee) – Charleston, SC – August 16, 2018
Management will make and then break promises with little regard to the well-being of the employee. Titles, responsibilities, corporate structure, etc. change on a quarterly basis and employees are never directly informed of the changes even after they have been implemented.
Hard to move up in your career there, the management was all guys and will not give women a chance to move forward! The benefits was great but is really a health concern! Because of all the cotton and dust. They wouldn't let us cut on blowers if the inspection people came out! The people that work there was great it's just poor management!
Poor management and not paid for the amount of work you had to do.
