    Manager Position At Corporate Headquarters Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Under Armour.

    Interview Details

    Process took 6 weeks. Applied online. Phone interviews with HR then was requested to do online recorded interview where you get 3 practice questions and then you are recorded for 5 questions. You submit this recording via web link and if "they " like what they see/hear you are invited for an in person interview in Baltimore with 7 people from different depts. Each person was more interested in telling me their experience working at UA and asking me what sports I participate in and do I own any products. Meetings were more about them then my background or what I could offer the company in that position. They make it very well known that you will be working long hours and that you should be prepared to do so.

    Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Interview Details

    There were several different stages throughout the interview process but they all happened fairly quickly and interviewers/HR correspondents were always friendly and quick to respond, very respectful of the candidate's time. The initial interview is online through a site that allows you to record your answers to unknown questions on your own time . Answers are then reviewed by the hiring committee. The questions are typical interview questions (strengths, why you chose to pursue the job, etc.). It seems a little awkward but this way they can get to know you and its convenient for everyone. The next step is a live interview through the same site with one or a few interviewers. This takes about an hour and in my opinion was more laid back in terms of questions. The interviewers mostly wanted to hear about experience and why you're choosing to pursue that particular position along with a few situation questions. I heard back very quickly after this interview, maybe a day but I'm sure this depends on number of candidates, which order you are in the interview process, hiring timeline, etc. Finally, we make it to the on site interview. I met with several different department/team managers/directors, back to back, each for a brief time. The types of questions and overall vibe were different from person to person. Most were similar to the live online interview, feeling like a casual conversation about your experience, reasons for choosing the job, reasons for choosing Under Armour in general and ultimate career goals. These should be easy by this stage in interviewing as you've probably pondered these questions quite a bit. This stage also includes a skills assessment. Due to confidentiality agreements and general respect for the integrity of the interview process, I'll leave it at that. This was one of my first real interviews so I made some mistakes and while I didn't receive an offer, it was an amazing learning experience!

    Not Answered Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Interview Details

    I interviewed with Under Armour and after a lengthy phone interview, I was asked to do a video interview. The video interview is extremely akward as you sit there staring at and talking to yourself in the camera (there is no one on the other end). I dressed professionally, even though I was sitting in my living room, and took my time completing the interview. After that, I never heard back. I sent 3 follow up emails over a period of months, and left a phone message, but my "recruiter" could not be bothered to send a 2-second email response. I spoke to another one of my former co-workers today, and she had the same experience. There is NO reason in this day and age of emailing, texting, etc. that any company should treat a candidate that way, blatantly ignoring them as if they are not a person and not worthy of even a canned email after investing time in the interview process. I am ok with not getting an offer, as I only want to work for companies that deliver quality candidate experiences and the highest level of customer service. Needless to say, I only buy Nike, Adidas or Champion these days!

    Brand Ambassador/REP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Under Armour.

    Interview Details

    Strangest interview process ever. I initially applied for a REP position, but got an email a month later saying I was to complete a video interview for a Brand Ambassador position. I was confused, but thought, why not? Three weeks later, I got an email saying that they wanted to fly me out to Baltimore to interview me for the Brand Ambassador/REP role (not specifying which one). 20 people flew out and we were all equally as confused, seeing as a large majority of us didn't speak to an actual human being prior to going to Baltimore, and just had completed the video interview. The 2 day trip consisted of a mix and mingle with several senior individuals at Under Armour (which kicked off on a good note seeing as the senior individuals really paid attention to who we were and what our backgrounds where). The next day was a series of panel interviews (usually 1 candidate per 2-3 UA employees), and a group presentation. We were told that we would get a solid yes/no within a week. I was rejected via automated, generic email over 5 weeks later. One of the people they hired from the group has "Band Embassador at Under Armour" as their title on LinkedIn. Another person had no sports, retail, fashion, or customer service experience. Former D1 athletes, retail merchandising majors, and those with team sports backgrounds were not hired. Not sure what they were looking for in this role/roles, but it clearly wasn't individuals with valuable experience and a knowledge of common spelling. The lack of response after being flown out to Baltimore was appalling and extremely unprofessional from a company that myself, and many others, hold to such high standards.

    Helpdesk Interview

    Interview Details

    The interview was not an in person interview but was rather a video-recorded interview. There were 5 questions presented and you would take a video recording of yourself answering the question. it was pretty simple but very awkward since you are not really talking to anybody. I would honestly prefer an in-person interview. I thought I did pretty good but I didn't ever get a call back.

    Executive Level Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Under Armour in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I've been contacted by UA more than once in regards to a position. Apparently the same role has turned over multiple times in a few short years. On both occasions, multiple people reached out to me the same week to schedule a call. On the first occasion, I was told I make too much and then they moved on. On the next occasion, someone called me fifteen minutes late for the interview, we had a 10 minutes conversation, they said the would follow up and months later they still hadn't. I have colleagues that have also interviewed at UA. They all complain about lack of communication and timing whether they were hired or not.

    Women's Design Rookie Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Under Armour.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, received an email that I got a "virtual" interview. I think they weren't very stingy with the interview offers because the two other people I know who applied also got an interview. But the actual interview was pre-recorded, so you could do it on your own time and UA could watch it on their own time. The problem was that it was really hard to sit and talk to yourself to answer a question. You don't realize how much you rely on the other person's conversational ques to keep you talking cohesively. I kind of didn't know when to stop. So the questions weren't actually hard, it was just the awkward delivery that made it tricky.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Under Armour in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first had to do a video type interview with prerecorded questions. It seemed like they had a lot of candidates do this. Then I had a second follow up phone interview/conversation which was more so learning about the company than traditional interview questions
