    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.

    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 have been working at Reebok full-time

    Pros

    Reebok is filled with talented and passionate people! The Fitness Strategy is focused, and the employees truly live the Brand. It is a "work hard/play hard" environment. Very team focused.

    Cons

    Reebok is very focused on it's mission, and needs employees that are all in on that mission - very driven and committed. If you are at that point in your career, then this is the perfect place for you. If you are looking for a part time position, or to "slow" down a bit, Reebok might not be the place for you at this time. The manager's are very flexible, but the teams are lean.

    I worked at Reebok full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere and great product for someone who loves fitness and like working with people. I like the aspect of encouraging employees and customers in fitness events and classes at the store.

    Cons

    Don't know how to grow within the company. Did not receive full training and don't know what the next step is or when I've reached it. I have not had a employee review yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Developing personal growth in the company from those who are performing well
