Amazing team but not so amazing company
Manager-in-Training (part-time) (Former Employee), Oakville, ONOctober 29, 2015
Pros: Great team members, merchandising, great customers
Cons: Minimum pay, no opportunity for raise, little opportunity for job advancement, lots of theft
Merchandising and maintaining visual standards is enjoyable. Great teams at store-level but unfortunately, head office doesn't seem to care about you unless you work in corporate. No opportunity for pay raise, very little opportunity for job advancement.

well established company, supportive management
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Owen Sound, ONOctober 22, 2015
Pros: wonderful colleagues
Cons: lack of employees
Fun workplace, supportive management. Enjoy the environment within the workplace, and colleagues. Difficult working around schedules for other commitments such as work, school and kids, likely due to amount of employees in and out in short amounts of time. Enjoy working with stock, and arranging displays throughout the store. Hardest part of the job would personally be the touch and go hours, finding care for child with the changing hours

positive environment!
Manager in Training (Current Employee), sault ste marie ontarioAugust 18, 2015
I thoroughly enjoy my job at Carters and Oshkosh. I get to see happy families, happy babies and children daily! How awesome is that? I have learned so much about product, and retail as well as children in my months working there. I have been part of the management for several months and I really enjoy it and never saw myself becoming an M.I.T. My co-workers are for the most part a blast to be around. We are able to work and have fun all at the same time. The hardest part of my job it most likely planograms, and stock days, I really can't complain though. The most enjoyable part of my job is definitely seeing babies come through the store, i absolutely love babies!

Manager in Training (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJuly 31, 2015
Pros: employee buying day
Cons: no salary increase
Fun work place if not for the new management.
I love it how the sales associate are working as a team not individually.
It is considered a big company but there is no benefit at all and no salary increase especially to the people who are working with the company for a long time.

productive and serious, and also very fun place to work for
Manager in Training (Former Employee), Grande Prairie, ABMarch 3, 2016
Pros: Always had fun on the job, but also serious when needed.
Cons: Our hours were always being cut to maybe a couple shifts a week.
A typical day at work for me, was going in sign in and start working as soon as I could, I wanted to get as much stuff done as possible before my shift ended. I would check our schedule and the list of things to do and start them. My manager had assigned us ( MITs) to certain parts in the store, where we would clean up, redo the walls, put new programs out, and also train the new employees in those sections and show them what needed to be done and how to do it correctly. I would also work on shipment and do the paperwork that came along with it; When my manager and assistant manager was not in, that would put me in charge of the girls and the store, so i would assign them to certain spots, and make a list of the thing's that needed to be done for that day. On sundays that i worked I would also do the morning paperwork that had to be sent to our regional manager. I would open and close the store, and if it was possible for me I would go in and cover the other girls shifts if needed. There wasn't really a hard part of the job, I really enjoyed the girls i worked with, they became like family to me, we were all like sisters to each other, that was the hardest part of leaving that job and moving.

I hated this job with a passion.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Woodbridge, ONMarch 15, 2015
Pros: i had one friend who worked there.
Cons: minimum wage, terrible management, worse coworkers, didn't get paid for overtime hours
I hated most of my coworkers. They were a bunch of petty women and all they did was talk behind one another's backs. They were often condescending towards the staff members they didn't like for no particular reason. The store was always a mess. We wouldn't get paid for working overtime, which is illegal but the managers still thought it was ok to make us stay later than we were supposed to without pay. They are lucky no one reported them to the labour board for this. The hours were scarce, yet they always seemed to be hiring new people.

Carters Oshkosh as a Sales Associate
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABMarch 1, 2015
For the past two years of working at Carters Oshkosh is as is as it was from the beginning from the management to the team members, it has always been a happy and enjoyable work place and company to work with. I have learned so much about customer service and dealing with different kinds of people everyday. And still from this day giving me so much to learn and remember. The management is really good, they never made their employee as an employee but more of a family. We always work as a WHOLE and always got each others back, help and guide each and every one of us to make our goal everyday.
