great!
SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 August 2018
love it! The fellow employees are the best part of this job!!! Helping customers find exactly what they are looking for is very rewarding! The only flaw is when hours are low during slow periods.

Great place to work
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Georgetown, ON26 July 2018
This company is great to work for. Everyone is always so kind and it feels like another family. Working in a children's store may sound scary but the children are adorable and the staff is always helpful.
Pros
Staff, customers and hours.

Don’t work here.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON5 July 2018
Worst place to work, try working for a company that actually cares about you and all the work you put in the company. Management does not know about the hassles in store, and most store managers don’t know how to do their job. There is always drama with co workers and the store managers for no reason. DO NOT WORK HERE!
Pros
Free 15 minute breaks
Cons
No hours, can’t book days off, availablility is not looked at when the schedule is made, no benefits, only part time work, management is rude, management and retail associates have no connection.

Worst Management Ever
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL14 June 2018
By far the worst management ever. I would never want to work here again. Manager sets her own schedule and comes and goes as she pleases. Not a very friendly atmosphere.

Cashier, Retail Assistant (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON12 June 2018
Overall the experience at Carters was okay, interacting with customers and assisting them with their purchases was rewarding. The store was clean and organized. Head management needs to be adequately trained on managing staff in a better manner.

Enthusiastic Team
Sales Associate / Cashier (Current Employee) –  Chatham-Kent, ON12 May 2018
Although I absolutely adored the staff members at Carter's/Oshkosh, the available hours were very minimal and inconsistent. Being a cashier and sales associate, I was able to interact with the public daily. I was responsible for completing sales transactions, merchandising and occasional bank deposits. The most enjoyable parts about working at Carter's/Oshkosh would have been the enthusiastic team and great customers.

Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON12 May 2018
the staff was okay but not amazing, they tend to spread drama and cause a hassle at the work place. It was good beginner job to gain basic knowledge and skills for retail

Productive and Fun place to work
SALES ASSOCIATE/CASHIER (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON11 May 2018
working for Carter's Inc has provided me with an amazing place of work. a typical day at work includes replenishing product on the sales floor, providing assistance to customers, cashing out customers, general cleaning of the store, and closing down tills. The management team is always helpful and willing to teach.

Carter's Systems - IT
Supply Chain Analyst (Current Employee) –  Worldwide7 May 2018
Out of all my careers, Carter's is one of the best as far as compensation goes. They have a robust, advanced, IT infrastructure. Lots to learn, and plenty of IT experience to help you along the way. Work days are long, including nights and weekends. Leadership does not celebrate wins or encourage promotion. The most enjoyable part for me was helping others resolve their issues.
Pros
Great benefits, 401k
Cons
No Bonuses, 24/7 Long Hours, Very minimal promotion oppurtunity

Management in St Johns NL...the worst
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL16 April 2018
Worst Management I've ever worked with. They set their own schedules, come and go when they feel like it...they are the reason there is so much turn over at this store. When i left they had already had over 100 people working for them, and the store has only been open 3 years.
Dont bother to apply unless your a family member of the management!
Pros
Discount
Cons
Management worst ever!

Fun place to work. Good atmosphere
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON26 March 2018
The job itself is fun and when busy makes the day go by really quickly. The other employees are good people who are eager to help new employees out. Everyone in management is excellent to talk to and make the working environment all the better.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
When the store isn't busy it can be boring if there isn't tasking to be done

Home/work-life balance, fun work environment, awful salaray compared to workload.
Supervisor and Key Holder (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK15 March 2018
Overall, Carter's was a great place to work. They had a wonderful understanding of work and home-life balance. They are always understanding of issues concerning children and childcare, though they never miss a chance to make you feel bad about it. The salary is not reflective of the amount of work you will put in here, though it is reflective of the retail industry of today. I always had a nice time going in to work, and seeing my coworkers. We really were a team, even with the ups and downs.
Pros
Balanced work/homelife, understanding to childcare/missed shifts due to children, amicable work environment
Cons
Too big of a workload for your position title/description, being on-call

Horrible Management
SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Lloydminster, AB11 March 2018
Management at this location was very poor. The manager chose to pick favourites and only train that employee for advancement. Would never work with that manager again, or for that company

Good place to work if you will use the discount
Manager in Training (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON16 February 2018
As a manager in training, I only made $0.25/hour more than sales associates, even though I had many more responsibilities and duties. I also found that the company didn't work to grow people, but preferred to hire new employees rather than promoting from within.
Pros
Employee discount
Cons
Leans toward outside hires, rather than promoting from within
