My day started by stocking the floor with inventory and helping customers with any questions about the type of product we sold. When I wasn't helping the customers, I was working at the cash register. I responsible for the setting up displays in then woman and children department in the store. One of the hardest parts of the job was Black Friday. I had assign my co workers to different areas of the store and stay on high alert so there wouldn't be any chance theft in my store.
My co workers, employee discount on shoes
When I first joined the company, I was excited about working for a brand that I genuinely enjoyed the product's. I realized over the years that the company cared more about the bottom line than they did their employees. Changing the employee discount, insurance carriers, and other terrible decisions that showed their true colors. The company has lost many top execs over proved that the company was not where I wanted to work.
Great product, good vacation time off.
New employee discount is horrible, do not roll over or pay out for PTO. DM's and SM's who do the bare minimum, and are rewarded for their bad behaviour. They say they promote from within, but do not...EVER!
Working at adidas was a great experience. I loved it there. The managers were great also I have to include that I am a big fan of the band Adidas so that made it much easier for me working there. I love community with people at work because I meet a lot of soccer players like myself
It's not bad. It's easy work compared to warehousing and the like, and adidas is willing to pay in the 9+ range starting for associates. The store regularly hits targets and allows for bonus opportunity, so that's awesome. The team has no experience in real productivity driven environments, and as such cannot visualise anything other than what they have been doing for years. Any serious change from is met with dissent and intentional disorganisation. When an associate hides, pandemonium ensues; when there's an hour left of a managers' shift, we dance to music and talk about partying in the stock room. If we can't locate it easily when a customer asks, we don't have it-come back later. If it takes any effort, we avoid it at all costs. Many of these things are commonplace in the retail field, but adidas has it to a science. If you just need some cash, the discount is no longer a reason; customers can save more now, and can put up with a bunch of children running your work environment, it's a great opportunity. If you think processes should be well-defined and have an element of continuous improvement, go elsewhere.
Flexible schedules, easy money, low-impact
Working for Adidas is always fun. Coworkers respect and enjoy each other. Teamwork is valued and exemplified. Products are high-quality, high-functioning, and stylish; Adidas continues to set the bar for street style today. Poor processes and, at times, poor inventory maintenance/integrity posed issues. Receiving too much of a single product, too much product that doesn't sell, or too little /none at all of a known, high-selling item occurred frequently. Regardless, great company, great environment. Would recommend to a friend.
Free shoe allotment, travel opportunities including special event opportunities
Don't bother applying to any management position. You will not learn anything from other management. They are lazy. Don't expect to be trained properly. You'll be held accountable for not meeting expectations even though you were not trained. A lot of favoritism.
I worked for this company for 3.5 years and I loved it. The company itself was very generous, however a lot of drama within the store boundaries was what caused me to leave. I found I was not being well compensated for the job I performed (Full Time Team Lead) and was actually getting paid the same as someone in the position below my own, and that the other Full Time Lead was being paid more than me, despite the fact that I had been in the company longer than either one of them. Otherwise, they have a great discount and super busy work environment!
