They did provide training during the first two weeks I was hired. (And they will continue to provide training for other processes.) All the supervisors were helpful to the best of their abilities and did regular evaluations. You get to participate in graphic design projects every now and then, if you so choose to. On days where the production floor was low on staff, we were asked if we wanted to help with the safer jobs (and still be paid).
snack days, were allowed to take short breaks from long hours on the computers, able to work remotely, cared greatly about their employees
There is a serious problem with playing favorites. , I had worked under a pair of siblings between this and another job. they like to talk about what you make and when you work. and then nit pick everything you do, causing any normal to panic if they are standing for even just a min.
They claim they are a family-oriented team but really everyone is out for themselves. It's a mentality that falls from the top down. Management has no clear direction which makes growing successfully in your job non-existant. It's daily fire drills to fix the mistakes of management. It could be a great company if they cleaned out upper management.

I liked my job there however I didnt feel they treated all personnel friendly I did engraving, sublimation and lasering. Didnt' have anyone who would talk to me about my work load probably because I always got it accomplished. Some of the leads treated some individuals disrespectfully
Celebrations of various holidays
Disrespect of leads and management didn't listen
in 2014 they thought a in house pattern maker was needed. so i came to work for them. in 2016 they changed tech designer and i set on my hands most of the time after that.
learned a little about fabric supplication
all the people that thought they were more experienced than they were
The job was great when I started. It wasn't difficult to meet production requirements with filling orders. What was difficult after a time was dealing with racists who work there. Management sweeps everything under the rug instead of addressing the issue.
Easy work, Great Benefits
Low pay for cost of living in area, Racist employees
Do not work here. It's pretty much a sweat shop. Multiple dangerous working conditions supervisors are aware of, but too cheap to fix. Multiple people have complained about the same lead, who bullied everyone. Instead of doing something about it they promoted her, so they could move on and do something else and not have to interview someone new. Pretty much told us if we didn't come in on Saturday's they would fire us ... which is not in the contract you sign and is illegal. Fired people for no reason other than they didn't like them. Multiple inappropriate relationships. What little pay you get is not worth it. Wish I could give this 0 stars.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

I loved my job more than any job I've ever had. Between the customers and staff interaction, it made for a fun work place full of new things each day. The hardest thing I experienced while working for this company was leaving them when we PCSed to Campbell.
Free Onsite Clinic
Working at GTM was a constant struggle every day. Management had an unbelievable turn over rate as well as employee turn over. There was no consistency and it was a "who you know" atmosphere. The hardest part of the job was dealing with fellow employees and management. The best part was being able to work with marketing and construct garments.
Decent empolyee benefits
Poor work environment/management
PTO accrual for every paycheck, free onsite health clinic, fast paced work environment, guaranteed 2, 15 minute breaks and 30 minute unpaid lunch break, will work with you on your schedule.
free onsite health clinic, PTO hours given every pay period, paid holidays
too many women working together causing unecessary drama
I worked for this company for 3 years while I was in school, I didn't think it was that bad at first but I couldn't have been more wrong. Many of the managers were way under qualified for their position. Whenever you needed their help with anything even they wouldn't know what to do. For example: I had my manager tell me that it wouldn't have been worth their time to call a customer back because the dollar total on their order wasn't high enough, in my opinion that's just very unprofessional. Hardly anybody that works there is actually passionate about what they do. Many of them are constantly looking for job opportunities elsewhere. This also causes the turnover rate to get extremely high, we had a new training group come in at least once a month because they can't retain anyone. When I was getting ready to graduate there was a position opened up that they said I would be a good fit for. I waited until the end of the quarter like they told me to before I talked to them about it. I talked to them at least twice a week for a month and then they told me that the job had been filled, without even granting me an interview for it. GTM does not respect their employees one bit. Of the bonuses that were promised to the sales, only 9 out of the 41 actually received their bonuses. I don't understand how anyone actually wants to work there.
Worked around my school schedule, relaxed atmosphere, casual attire
Unprofessional, lack of communication, out of stock items made it very hard to sell, lack of appreciation, poor management
Great management which makes the job. Everyone around you is more than happy to help. Typical 9-5 office job but they tend to have more fun than most other offices.
Physician on site, weekends off, great people
Sitting most of the day
GTM Sportswear was an excellent place to begin my career. It offered a team focused environment with an emphasis on collaboration between departments. Our department focused on fostering interpersonal relationships by offering monthly department outings and company wide engagement events (kickball tournaments, fitness challenges etc.). GTM offered competitive pay, great benefits and an on-site healthcare clinic for employees and families.
Good people, benefits, career advancement
There isn’t a clear vision as a company. The Hanes acquisition went well, but there isn’t much clarity as to the long term future for this organization. We often sell against ourselves, as our customers are able to buy from wholesale companies nearby. When attending clinics, we often stand next to “Champion” reps who have the ability to undercut our prices and take from our booked dollar goal. When your “winners” are bailing left and right, it’s time to take a look at your management team and see if it’s time for a change. It’s too bad, because the day-to-day atmosphere is great, there’s just a few cancers at the top who drag the organization down. Oh yeah, and we have a free on-site health clinic.
On-site health clinic, discounts at local restaurants, discounted athletic apparel
Very slow PTO accrual process makes vacation a joke.
There is a lot to learn with the many different processes. Training is challenging, but worth it if you're able to stick with it. Relaxed workplace culture while striving to meet production goals. Hardest part of the job is training. If you make it past that, it is a fun job. Taco Tuesdays, snack days, and chili cook offs are just a few of the common activities. The most enjoyable part of the job is there is no micro-management and you are basically entrusted to know what is expected of you and to be responsible enough to get the jobs done and completed in a timely manner. Only real gripe is having to share work centers due to not having enough computers for every artist.
