The point system is not good when you dont get a grace period . You get pointed for everything! The work environment is friendly oriented. There's benefits you can receive if your selected to be hired on. Being hired on is optional. Temps and hired on gets paid the same amount. Certain departments you can earn incentives which Is extra pay based on your work production.

The company paid ok and medical benefits were great. I did not feel like my job was secure nor appreciated. Gildan has a strict attendance policy and at least 70% of the employees (if they make it a full year) have to get on FMLA to keep their jobs. Mandatory overtime when work is strong and send you home early when work is weak. I don't and never saw in my 8yrs there that they cared about me as a person...just production.
Pay, if, you, work, 3yrs, or, more
Management, no such thing as a company "planner", mandatory overtime when business was good, lack of 40hr weeks when business was slow, NO caring for employee's work/home situations, if you want a balanced home & work life, then Gildan is not for you.
It is like a family environment. Everyone works together to get things done. You have one on one training and work with others from outside of your group. I work along side of sales to make sure the orders are completed and sent to the customers in a timely manned.
Not suited for everybody. It varies from one department to the other, but work-life balance could be a challenge.
They believe in having a lean corporate office, which bring its amount of stress but also interesting challenges.
