    Pros

    Great co workers, fantastic helpful management, great work environment. It was a pleasure to come to work everyday. (only left bc of a move)

    Cons

    long walk from the parking lot if you are semi disabled (not disabled enough to have a handicap placard) come early to snag some of the coveted close spots

    Advice to Management

    Keep being your wonderful selves! Thank you management and upper management for being real, down to earth, happy, super friendly and fun!

    I worked at GTM Sportswear full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Been with the company the highs and lows, so I've seen it all. Joining a company having 30% year-over-year growth is like nothing else. Everyone is having a blast and you can throw money at anything. The team has adopted the scrum project management style, and has been amazing for product development, employee satisfaction, and overall productivity. GTM has good benefits, and will only get better after being acquired by Hanes. It is a great company to work for, and you'll get to work with great people trying to make a difference every day.

    401k and benefits are all pretty solid.

    Cons

    Hit a wall as far as upward mobility. There was no real way to move up from my current position, but it was a stable position. Compensation started lagging behind the market in recent years, they seem to be trying to course correct on this though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pursuing the business-to-business side of things, that's where the future is. GTM has a lot of opportunities at it's doorstep.

    I have been working at GTM Sportswear full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at GTM Sportswear would definitely be the amount of benefits received as well as the affordability and coverage of some of the bigger things such as medical and dental.

    Cons

    The downsides are the starting pay is very poor and does not get much better after working for awhile. Also, there is a lot of competition amongst employees that contributes to an overall aggressive and stressful workplace.

    "The People I Work with Are the Main Reason I Stay"

    I have been working at GTM Sportswear full-time

    Pros

    My team members and immediate supervisors are great. For not being directly affiliated with the local university or in the local college district, this company is unusually understanding of students' school schedules and coursework loads. There are worse companies to have to work at in this area as a production or warehouse employee.

    Cons

    The workload is sometimes overwhelming. Climate control is spotty. Let me clarify: in the summer months, I was afraid the warehouse employees would get heat stroke.

    Advice to Management

    Please gain some understanding of what it takes for warehouse and production staff to make possible what you are apparently promising customers and corporate. If you're truly wanting capable, loyal, long-term employees to produce the goods that your business is selling, start treating them like equal participants.

    I worked at GTM Sportswear (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only gift this company gave me were the relationships I created with my coworkers. Since the company was such a horror show we really needed to work together to get anything done.

    Cons

    The owner. Let go of HUNDREDS of loyal employees in waves once they implemented a new operating system that crippled their company. He still kept his private jet.. they made sure to fire me 7 days before my two year anniversary so they would only be required to compensate me for one week instead of two when they let me go.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was amazing. It's the owner. A bonafied frat boy with no apprehension in burning up money and making his employees the scapegoat.

    I worked at GTM Sportswear full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and some good/excellent employees I worked with were fun and energetic. Others, not so much.

    Cons

    Management at the time didn't seem to care about their production staff. We quit having meetings on a monthly basis also.

    Advice to Management

    Take complaints and employees more seriously if you want to keep your excellent ones working there a long time.
