Fast paced at time but also slow paced wasn't always enjoyable.

Typical day at work is greeting people and making sure things are in place making sure you make your manager happy and content with what your doing. Management was okay depending on what manager you were working with.
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 9, 2018
I've been working for Puma for awhile and it's honestly one of the greatest jobs I've ever had. However, there are a few hiccups with management. They can never seem to get on the same page and there are often strong verbal disputes between them that never get resolved. At times it can be uncomfortable because the rest of the staff can feel it. It seems like a great place to work but only if your full time. Part time usually gets a majority of the work without so much as a thumbs up but management will be very quick to point out all of the things you are doing wrong. Everyone except for maybe two of the supervisors lack communication skills.

I honestly loved working here. everything was organized and you just learn to love your job, everyday was not always a challenge but when it was it was fun. working here I have met and learned about different cultures, and I used to be very shy until I worked here, it brought me out my shell, and helped me to learn how to engage with other people. a typical day at work would be coming in learning the goal for the day and the mission for the week , and a new strategy for the week. then you would help the customer by listening to what their looking for and asking more questions, then you bring at least 3 different options to choose from, and to add on their product with something else that would be an addition to their happiness.

Productive and fun workplace, Constantly learned something new Management is very supportive The culture is face paced and energitic The hardest part of the job was managing conflict Everything was enjoyable.
Puma is a great place to work with amazing coworkers and management. Duties for retail associate include helping customers with either apparel or footwear and charging them at the register. The shoes aren’t hard to memorize after you get the hang of it, and apparel you mainly help with getting the correct size and matching outfits. The training is alright, you mainly pick up on things and ask around until you feel comfortable doing it on your own. I wouldn’t rely on this to be your only job because hours range from 10-20 a week and the pay isn’t good. It’s a great place to start or pick up a second job.
I had to go back on almost every page and re-read at least one paragraph. The concepts are great and if you are a business person by all means read it. For personal use, there are a few things to highlight and move on, but not enough. I am glad I finished it, but would only recommend to certain people.

Working at Puma resulted into a good sales experience for me. The competitions and energy required to work there was exciting and mind stimulating. The organization made it worth it by paying above minimum wage and giving the employees a series of clothe alottment every half year.
