Lots to do and even more to learn than most jobs but it allows you to expand your duties and is also enjoyable. Not going to elaborate on the ups and downs of certain positions.

This place is horrible to work!

Horrible Horrible place to work, bosses are rude, talk down on you, just one big sweat shop, your either running in warehouse to pick items, or shipping, or sewing, screen print and heat press

None

A productive and quiet workplace.

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).

Pros

snack days, were allowed to take short breaks from long hours on the computers, able to work remotely, cared greatly about their employees

Lack of Care

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.

No work/life balance

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.

Help people considering your employer. Share your experience.

Great Workplace Atmosphere

I really enjoyed working at GTM. They are very dedicated to making employees feel at home and welcomed. I would recommend anyone looking for an inside sales position to give them a shot.

Stressful and not overly friendly

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

Pros

Celebrations of various holidays

Cons

Disrespect of leads and management didn't listen

very stressful, always waiting for the other shoe to drop

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.

Pros

learned a little about fabric supplication

Cons

all the people that thought they were more experienced than they were

Great place at first...

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.

Pros

Easy work, Great Benefits

Cons

Low pay for cost of living in area, Racist employees

This is the worst place to work

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.

Pros

Nothing

Laid back job with many opportunities

Not a bad place to work, however if you don't fit into the views or their way doing things it will be hard to advance in the company. Very result driven and a quota is set in every job there.

Work environment

This started off good when i was first employed. As time went on the company takes advantage of employees who do good work and they don't compensate them for the jobs they do and areas the know.

Pros

Stable work

Cons

No consideration of empkiyees

Wonderful management and staff

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.

Pros

Free Onsite Clinic

Cons

None

Poor management

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.

Pros

Decent empolyee benefits

Cons

Poor work environment/management

Excellent benefits

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.

Pros

free onsite health clinic, PTO hours given every pay period, paid holidays

Cons

too many women working together causing unecessary drama

Very poor place to work

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.

Pros

Worked around my school schedule, relaxed atmosphere, casual attire

Cons

Unprofessional, lack of communication, out of stock items made it very hard to sell, lack of appreciation, poor management

Productive and fun work place

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.

Pros

Physician on site, weekends off, great people

Cons

Sitting most of the day

Fun place to begin career

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.

Pros

Good people, benefits, career advancement

Nice company, but no vision.

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.

Pros

On-site health clinic, discounts at local restaurants, discounted athletic apparel

Cons

Very slow PTO accrual process makes vacation a joke.
