Gestion du personelle et environement de travail d equilibrer
Superviseur (Current Employee) –  Boucherville, QC18 August 2017
Une aussi belle compagnie qui fonctionne tres bien et aimé par les client. Parcontre la gestion du personnel et l equilibre professionnel n est pas au point. On comprendra que cette compagnie est nouvellement introduite dans notre pays depuis moin de 5 ans. Par contre il ouvre les magasins sachant que d autre non pas gerant affecter ou d assitant et ne donne pas non plus la formation necessaire pour atteindre le travail attendu. Le personelle est formidable et l environnement de travail aussi mes la gestion du personnel est la base de lentreprise si il ny a personne pour ouvrire le magasin il y a un probleme.
Pros
Les employer aime leur travail et veulent travailler
Cons
La gestion du personnel est mal fait en partant par l absance de gerant et d assitant

This is a great place to work if you love being well overworked, underpaid and unappreciated ! Most staff are great, management not as great. Decent discount but not too many other benefits.

Decent discount
Cons
No appreciation for hard work

Poor management but great place to work at
Manager in Training (Current Employee) –  GTA, ON25 April 2017
I've worked at 3 different locations within this company. Staff is always pleasant. Great to work with. Management at store level is great. Always accommadting and understanding of personal situations and schedules.

Regional management. Work ethic wise, shes a great step up from the previous one. Takes the time to work with each store to improve goals and numbers. As a person, not the greatest. Will say one thing to you and another behind your back.

Sales associates get min wage
MIT few cents more
Mgmt couple dollars more.
We don't get paid enough to deal with the ish that happens in the store.
Pros
Staff is pleasant to work with/for, scheduling is accomodating
Cons
Regional manager is two faced, min wage not enough for the things we do

great customers, love the clientelle and helping with baby and children clothing
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Brantford, ON28 March 2017
Most days there is always something to be done. Stock, customers, markdowns. General maintenance of the store.

Customers are generally friendly and looking for advice for baby gifts or clothing sizes.

Terrible - Overworked and under paid
Manager (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB2 March 2017
No raises regardless how long you've worked with the company. No support or resources for management team. Completely overworked with the amount of product delivery pumped into the store. Demands are high from head office. Only focused on higher sales and opening new stores while the employees are over worked without any appreciation. Head office human resources is a complete utter joke with no support or accountability for decipline for associates that are not performing. No such thing as work life balance with this company. Disappointing seeing how it's a children's store. Huge turnover as employees get completely burned out.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

No support for managers at store level
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Alberta23 February 2017
Note to head office.. unless you start treating your store managers with some value you will always have a revolving door and no retention. This is a review from Alberta, there seems to be a HUGE disconnect between the Eastern provinces and those in the West. Note to Regional managers, get to know your management team and be a leader not a manager. People work for people not organizations...
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list

Review
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON28 January 2017
I enjoyed the people I worked with at Carters, except for the manager. She was not accommodating when it came to school, ( Why I had to leave), and she plays favourites a lot of the time.

Service à la clientèle (Former Employee) –  Saint-Sauveur (70)16 January 2017
A typical day at work was started with positive feedback and positive criticism as well as the preparation for a day`s work ahead. Smiling clients arrive and we help them with anything they need from sizes, colors, and fashion advice.

Not a very nice place to work. Management was nice, but the over all environment was a bit stressful. A little bit unorganized, childish actions were at place

meh
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB23 November 2016
Job was great when the store was busy, during the dead hours you as an employee had to wander around aimlessly in your zone unable to be stationary even if there were no customers in the store. When customers entered your zone you approached them with a hello and see if there is anything you could help them with, if not you leave them be and come back in 5-10 minutes or if you see that a certain item has caught their attention, if your customer wants to purchase we would check if there was anyone at cash to help them or a line up that could be shortened by having both tills going simultaneously, if there is no one at cash we would attend to our customer from start to finish.
Pros
discount on carter's|oshkosh items
Cons
not enough hours, dead times, stuck in a single zone like greet all the time.

Amazing place to work
Manager in Training (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON14 November 2016
I truly love working here. But I do not enjoy the shifts with a possibility to start earlier due to if you cant come in due to plans they do not like that. You have to be able to go to work if the schedule says you might start earlier then those days you can not make any plans.
Pros
Lots of hours when busy. Amazing coworkers.
Cons
Long Hours, when slow and no new stock, can be boring

It is not worth it to work for this company
Manager in Training (Key Holder) (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC4 October 2016
the manager and coworkers really good
district manager unfear, and did not promote from within the company.
They are working you like a slave but when it comes to raising the pay rate it takes forever to give you few pennies
Pros
have fun with coworkers, because we needed to, otherwise you cannot resist
Cons
pay rate really low but with lots of responsibilities, no benefits
