    Great Ideas but Poor Execution

    Retail Trainer (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsIt was a great company to work for because the people were wonderful and attentive to you as a person.

    ConsToo many changes within the work environment to truly see where one idea could go before moving in an entirely different direction. They also undercut their own business by providing superior product to vendors over it's own corporate run stores.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management needs to understand what it is like to run a retail store actually not just theoretically.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very Boring Internship

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt's the same building as adidas / reebok, so you can build relationships

    ConsIt's a very mundane internship. They make it sound worth while to start, but you don't get paid and you just run copies.

    Fun experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe discount was great. There was a lot of freedom for creativity with the visual displays with shoes and windows.

    ConsMost of the management team was unprofessional of incompetent. The general manager was the only one who seemed to have it together, but it wasn't consistent with the team.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be a greater evaluation of individuals applying for management positions. Most were irresponsible and didn't do their job, creating their associates to pick up most of the slack.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Management Played Favorites

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Birch Run, MI

    Pros-I was able to work independently without excessive management oversight.
    -Worked with friendly customers who loved talking
    -Gained skills in customer service, cash transactions, ect.

    Cons-I was hired at 16 and the company never requested a work permit
    -To be honest, another 16 year old girl and I were the hardest workers. We had the lowest pay (min. wage), had to do grunt work like scrubbing the bathroom and had to follow policy to the tee. Other employees could stay punched in during their lunches, could wander over to Reebok (connected to Rockport) leaving Rockport unattended and frequently left ALL of the work for me and the other girl.
    -Management did not follow protocol. I was often left in charge of watching both stores and cashing out my drawer.
    -Favoritism to the extreme! If you refused to go out with the management on cigarette breaks, they will treat you poorly and put your fellow employees on a pedestal.
    -Little to no training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to BE a manager; don't try to favor employees that you are friends with who don't do anything.

    A great company with a visionary product but lack of leadership to take it to the next level.

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsHonest company, provides it's employees with great benefits and livable wages, under the Adidas umbrella it should skyrocket.

    ConsSenior management (US--not German) is pretty clueless. They have a vision, but no implementation. They have shrunk rather than grown, and it does not seem to get any brighter in outlook.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have to grow your markets. You have a world class product at a fantastic price point, but your lack of presence west of the Mississippi is appalling. Not every store will be a superstar , but every store increases exposure to your product.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
