    I worked at Reebok

    Pros

    co workers were really cool and a few of them were really into fitness which was fun to be around. Good benefits and health insurance. Fun fitness classes.

    Cons

    Not a clear vision for goals of the brand. only focused on selling and numbers not about being an ambassador for the brand. Hired people with little experience but then have high expectations to sell very technical and high price points. Very old school way of doing business... Needs to be more progressive to keep up with competitors. Product and designs aren't great for the price they sell for. Quality is subpar to competitors except for sneakers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Way of selling is so old fashioned. felt like I worked at forever 21 not a luxury brand which it seems like the company is going towards. You want to be up there with top brands; designs and apparel don't support that goal.

    I worked at Reebok full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Amazing discount, fellow associates were amazing, this is a Fitness cultured workplace so the work uniform/dress code is very relaxed...you get to wear what you wear to the gym or if you don't work out you lounge around your house in!! Certain Leaders are amazing to talk with and pick their brain and have as mentors.

    Cons

    Lack or WORK/LIFE BALANCE. Don't try to call in sick ever, you will be told that you will still have to come in anyways, regardless of how sick you are and that you will just have to suck it and get over it!! They use the camera system that is installed to prevent shop lifting as a means to track employees and spot them doing something so they can fire them, regardless of whether the issue is actually something to be fired over or not!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit being petty little high school drama filled girls!! Not everything is a life or death situation, and not everything is exactly as how the camera conveys it!!

    Pros

    Discount is good. Works at rebook and adidas. Not much else good to say. They reward for lies and tattling.

    Cons

    Paperwork training. Area and district managers ASK for dirt on assistant and store managers, if you don't have any, they ask you to find some for promotion. Very sketchy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper managers are shady and a liability. You are a law suit waiting to happen. I was asked constantly about me sm and asm and their performance. My area manager promised promotions for poor evals and false info, looking for a new job

    I have been working at Reebok full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -networking opportunities
    -opportunities to move up/ increase potential
    -fast paced working environment
    -excellent benefits package
    -great discount across affiliated brands

    Cons

    -long hours/ minimal pay
    -challenges in attracting and retaining talent
    -difficult environment to be passionate in your role
    -high expectations with little to no recognition/ incentive to drive results
    -constant change in processes and procedure, consistently trying to adapt to a new culture. Very little time to evaluate processes when constantly adapting to new

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus on European style work ethic. Less focus on hitting targets, and more 'people focus' (customers and employees). Understand your employees want you to succeed, but you need to show your employees a sense of ownership and stability

    I worked at Reebok part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Reebok was clear about their mission statement, when it came to the company and their expectations. Very much into fitness and promote motivation through product and employees.

    Cons

    Did not feel appreciated by the company or the staff that I worked with. Also I attempted to shop online and purchase items through the website as a employee and did not get any assistance from staff, website, or technical support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take responsibility for yourself, staff, and store and remain professional at all times.

    employee discount, first to try the new gear/ first dibs on sizing.

    Difficulty getting answers due to lack of ownership and function empowerment. Constant struggle between departments.

    I have been working at Reebok

    Pros

    Travel perks are nice and help alleviate some stress when workload seems unbearable. If you are a fitness fanatic, you can expect daily encouragement to move, cancel or delay meetings. Friday summer hours.

    Cons

    Fitness (Crossfit) enthusiasm and appearance seem to matter more in terms of company progression than dedication and hard work towards daily job responsibilities. Little support offered when morale is low. Lay offs and restructuring seem to be inevitable and at least yearly, resulting in little confidence about job security. Minimal action taken when employees face inhospitable working conditions due to unreasonable upper management. Zero to no mentoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on rewarding and maintaining talent by consistent salary review and bonus offerings - time it takes to get approvals for pay increases or additional reward money is far too long - people walk and we lose extraordinary designers to competitors offering more pay for the same work. Offer support for new managers and teams.

    Reebok is trying to focus and find a footing in this hyper competitive market. It's a mixed bag.

    I have been working at Reebok full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Many of the non-managment employees are truly talented and hardworking. A great worklife balance in the footwear department.

    Cons

    Almost comedic lack of direction and focus. Weak upper management and weaker Director level. Offen times the wrong people promoted for the wrong reasons.

    Lots of layoffs - I mean 'restructuring' - over the past ten years.

    No career planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make the best product possible - not the best product possible for a price. Stop all of the compromises to the product and don't release something until it is ready.

    Less is more.

    Create a career path to follow for each employment category.
