Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – May 13, 2018
Adidas was my first job, and I learned everything very quickly. It was just remembering where everything was it got easy after a few days it just takes memorization. If you needed help with anything the managers, and other employees never hesitated to help.

Working with adidas you meet plenty of different kinds of people with different mindsets and working habits. The best part about working at adidas has to be meeting the people who work there, everyone there is genuine and very sweet. Hardest part of the job has to be some of the management, when the management sees flaws in the way things are running, they begin to micromanage their team. In my opinion, that isn't always the best way to go about correcting a large group of people cause it tends to lead to some associates getting frustrated.

Besides the heat, adidas is a good competitive job especially if you like fast paced work. The people are friendly and the work environment is comfortable. They have good programs but u have to have seniority to enjoy them.
Personally, my time at adidas helped me grow out of my shell. I was young & struggled with openly communicating with people. Now, not only was I a CS (customer service) champion, but I was also able to learn Portuguese from our international customers & gain expirience as an assistant supervisor.
The discount, the fast paced enviornment, the ability to meet multipme people from multiple countries & the knowledge of fashion
Not enough pay to live on your own or maintain yourself.

I have to delegate task to my associates to complete all the morning procedures to open the store. I evaluate wich tasks have higher priority to finish them earlier. check the schedule for the day and decide if we need to add or cut associates to the schedule. make sure associates provide excellent customer service per company standards. give feedback and touchbase to associates regarding their performance.

Working at Adidas could be a blessing or a curse, depending on the day. Overall, the highlights of employment were enough to override the cons. The culture and the people that they employed were young, energetic, and positive people who shared a love for sports and fashion. The best part about the job was the fact that everyone seemed to care for one another and there was always someone who was willing to help develop you to the next level. Benefits were great, especially if it was your first full-time job.
The most difficult part of the job was the management and it's culture. At first, management led by example and genuinely wanted to help people move forward with their career aspirations. Now, the management team is beholden to sales goals and deadlines that take up the vast majority of their time. Managers also spent a majority of their time either working on office tasks, creating presentations for meetings, or "browsing" their emails. The focus on the associates and the team fell to the way side and the management team basically became a team of well-paid office clerks while the day-to-day managerial tasks fell to "elevated" associates. Most of these associates have no managerial experience but are expected to oversee store operations, delegate breaks and meal periods, and deal with corrective actions to their fellow associates. Not to mention, most of these elevated associates were making barely above minimum wage, not early enough to justify their new responsibilities. Meanwhile, incoming managers saw their wages go up with the new Oregon hiring laws in 2018 butmore... had fewer responsibilities than ever.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the culture of family. Everyone saw each other as close friends and shared in their love for the brand. The environment we worked in was incredibly high volume but we worked as a team to ensure that every person was taken care of. I don't think I've ever felt more at home than when I was with my team at work. They supported me on my good and bad days and looked out for me, even off the clock.less

Great atmosphere, wonderful team, flexible hours. High pace environment. The most difficult part of the job was staffing constraints due to lower then expected sales, other wise wonderful place to work.
visual merchandiser (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 2, 2018
Managers do not even show up to work, and act as if they care about the workplace. No leadership or initiative.. Managers are not qualified to work in an environment were culture and sport unifies all races.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX 75220 – September 30, 2018
it was a cool job , everything is fast paced . you can only have your computer . nothing else on your desk which i think its pretty cool because it keeps you busy and focused . the only bad thing was that they would always mess up on the hours which messed up the pay at times.
adidas used to be a company that I loved getting up every morning to work for.. but they have undergone some major management changes in the North American market especially in the Supply Chain side of the business. The environment is not a toxic, look over your shoulder culture. Individual performance is meaningless no matter how good you are especially in the Spartanburg office. There is no room for advancement, no cross functional training, and you feel like the lesser individually and as a group in Spartanburg... Just a cog in the wheel that will never be appreciated.
Good Health Benefits and Time off, Good Discount
Micromanagement, Toxic, Overworked and Under-appreciated
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 25, 2018
Your coworkers truly become family/best friends. Everyday was pretty relaxed, weekdays were never too busy. I used to to be very shy and not talk to anybody, this job has taught me how to interact with people and carry on a conversation. The hardest part of the job for me was the fact that I wasn’t getting any hours and a manager of mine seemed to have a disliking toward me for some reason. Other than that, Adidas is an awesome company to work for, I would highly recommend it to any high schoolers looking for job experience.
