    Pros

    *Genuinely great people!
    *There are plenty of opportunities to be involved with special projects and multi-department committees.
    *Senior management is approachable, interacts with everyone, and provides regular updates using a Q&A-type forum.
    *Young, passionate workforce eager to make cool products.
    *Be a Hanesbrand employee but live and work in Manhattan KS - a great city!
    *Many of the managers and leadership roles are folks who started in more basic roles and have moved up, so they're committed to GTM and really understand the business.
    *HR is fantastic.
    *Everyone wants to be better.
    *Free clinic/urgent care.
    *Dresscode is basically just have clothes on.
    *Decent health benefits and network.

    Cons

    *Office space is pretty bland, not many windows.
    *Work-from-home/remote isn't broadly accepted.
    *There's still some ping-pong feeling as GTM works to fully integrate itself with Hanes/Champion.
    *Dental and vision benefits are a bit pricey.
    *Plenty of work to be done but sometimes resources are sometimes constrained, leading to bottlenecks and prioritization that delays or stops valuable work.
    *Not that many holidays off and vacation/personal time is a bit limited at first.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a strong vision for GTM and over-communicate about it. Keep pushing hard and allowing folks to do what you hired them to do. Consider freshening up the workspace with more natural light and common areas, more greenspace outside.

    Pros

    As a part of their web development team, I was exposed to industry leading practices and a professional environment.

    Cons

    Due to my college schedule, I was unable to spend as much time as I would have liked on projects and actively contributing to the company.

    Pros

    It is a pretty good work environment with the ability to learn multiple different skills. The more things you learn the better the chance you will be able to have a pay increase.
    During peak busy season there is plenty of opportunities to do overtime. Some Saturday's are mandatory.
    For full-time employees there is access to a free gym membership, PTO, 401k, Dental, Health, Life, and Vision insurance. Also a free on site health clinic for employees and family members.

    Cons

    Usually if you are hired anywhere from June-September you will be a temporary hire and will only be on for 6 months. Once your 6 months is up depending on their budget and workload they could let you go. But most people stay unless there is an abundance of temp employees.

    During slow season it could really slow. So some days you might go home early. But on the other token they will usually allow you to go to other departments if you want to finish your shift.

    I also think base pay is low for production work.

    Advice to Management

    1st shift and 2nd shifts seems to not carry the same standards. Which allows some employees to do less while other employees have to pick up the slack. Some favortism could be at play sometimes.

    I worked at GTM Sportswear full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code, free apparel, the customers, free health clinic

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with sales staff, time off is not consistent across board, treating sales people like children, terrible pay based on market average in the area, horrible interdepartmental communication, constant hiring of under qualified workers, revolving door of employees

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your staff. They are unhappy and this is why so many people left all at once. Pay them like Hanes pays its employees and actually commicate with your sales people and find out what THEY need to be successful. Ask yourselves WHY are you a revolving door.

    Pros

    The people you work around are great they truly make coming to work every day. GTM has a relaxed dress code which is nice and free gym membership.

    Cons

    Management is not in touch with reality of what happens on the sales floor. They ask for your feedback but it goes no where and no one takes it serious. A lot of discrepancies between managers i.e vacation time, leaving early, and disciplinary actions.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at yourself and the company as a whole to realize why sales are continuously decreasing. It’s not the sales reps fault, since the great transition to HBI there is never appropriate stock to sell customers and the second there is we are told that product is discontinued by Champion. Start to take pride in your workers who stay with you and maybe your sales floor would not be a revolving door.

    I worked at GTM Sportswear full-time

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with and my team. I made some great friendships at GTM.

    Cons

    The pay was terrible, benefits were mediocre at best (the health clinic on site was amazing though). Atmosphere was depressing. Everyone was constantly on the hunt for a new job so high turn overs and a bad working environment. No upward mobility.
