    Pros

    Good employee discount, diverse and friendly coworkers, you can pretty much take off whenever you want (depending on your position)

    Cons

    Somewhat messy management. People come and go quickly in this company from what I've experienced, so at times it's hard to find coverage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to find more people who will treat the job as a somewhat permanent workplace in managerial/higher up positions, who are more experienced and serious about getting tasks accomplished.

    Pros

    The people who work there are great and provide a great working environment .
    A good job for high school/college students or if your future goals are working as a retail manager this a good job for you.

    Cons

    Not enough hours to go around. You'll probably average about 10-15hrs a week.

    Pros

    The insurance is wonderful!!! Wish I still had it!

    Cons

    If you are not into crossfitt, or are into sports, this could not be the best fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what lane you want to be in and stick to it. Are you going to be a fitness brand , or are you going to try to compete with the big dogs in the athletic industry. If ,so the company needs to do some serious self reflection and realize they are not in the same zip code with the Nikes, UA, or even your parent company, Adidas.

    Pros

    Fitness center, plenty of money, big brand appeal. The people are the best part of this company. Also it's a healthy culture. the environment is great too.

    Cons

    Lots of past layoffs, not organized. They don't seem to have a handle on the brand and what they are and want to be. Adidas is vampiring the brand daily. They will never be on level with Nike again. Adidas will never let that happen.

    Great potential, but weak brand management

    I worked at Reebok

    Pros

    Great campus and facilities. The spirit of the company feels young, energetic and ambitious.

    Cons

    External brand perception limits the success of most product or marketing initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps worth looking at a deeper brand focus beyond crossfit!? Can this niche avenue support such a large global brand....

    Former Employee - Third Key Holder in Oklahoma City, OK

    I worked at Reebok full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent employee discount. Initial training during store opening was in depth and regional manager was hands on and readily available.
    Fun sales contests for employees and friendly competitions with other Rebook Outlets.
    Excellent brand which makes it easy to get excited about on the sales floor.
    Company stands by their product 100% with valuable warranty's and easy to understand return/exchange policies.

    Cons

    Time off requests required employees to find their own replacement for a shift, including management. Not unreasonable except 3rd Key Holder was not allowed to use any employee below them or salaried manager to cover their shift which left them no alternatives.
      3rd Key Holder has no guarantee of full time hours, even though the job description says full time. Shifts acting as manager on duty were required but employee was subject to intense review from store manager after every shift.
    3rd Key Holder, while acting as manager on duty, was required to open and close the store alone. However, employee was restricted from certain managerial duties and actions regarding customers.
    Part-Time employees were not guaranteed hours.
    Frequent employee and manager turnover.
    Employees do not work on commission but are required to fill a sales and item per transaction quota each shift which was subject to review each week.
    Required sales quota made for a stressful work environment.
    Intense scrutiny from store manager created a stressful work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store manager should allow staff to do their jobs as per their job description. Consider their opinions on store merchandising and sales strategies to optimize their talents and production within the company.
    When you ask for suggestions and opinions, don't be so quick to dismiss them because you disagree with them.
     Give management the benefit of the doubt and stop relying on employee gossip to determine how your managers are performing.
    Do not tell your current employee during an interview for an advanced position, that you are confident they can do the job but you are hiring someone else!
    Realize that customers come first and the world will not stop if one single bin is not completely filled the night before or a mirror was not polished. Employees are paid hourly and any time over their schedule is severely frowned upon so something might be missed.

    I have been working at Reebok full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I like the culture and the fitness mindset. They'll reimburse tuition. Health benefits and 401k match are also decent.

    Cons

    Horrible communication with corporate and upper management. Always getting the run around about restructuring plans and corporate news leaks. Store managers abuse privileges; they either sit in the back on the phone, take hours for breaks, or take unaccounted for days off. I was left doing everything the manager was supposed to do, plus work the sales floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervise your store managers better, make sure they are working the required shifts. Be honest to lower management. We don't appreciate the run around.

    Pros

    The people you work with everyday are amazing, supportive, and overall fun to be around. The facilities are unbeatable and there is a huge emphasis on fitness. Great global experience and good resume builder. You will learn to be a jack-of-all-trades here.

    Cons

    There are no real grow and development plans set by and stuck to by HR to ensure that employees moving along on the right path. Also, there is a lack of clear strategy and common goals from Senior Management. While Merchandising, Sale, and Product Marketing are held to a financial set of goals, it is not clear that the Design teams are held to the same goals. You will also need to learn how to work in a highly matrixed organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees and managers to make final decisions. Every day decisions that should be handled by cross-functional teams do not need to be escalated to the top.
