  1. Exciting and fast-paced experience

    I have been working at Under Armour

    Pros

    company on the rise, innovative technologies, fun environment, athletic feel. The atmosphere is fast-paced, and suits athletes/gym-goers well.

    Cons

    Must have the ability to move around quickly, and meet strict deadlines. Deadlines include daily and hourly tasks. You may often experience times where your location is understaffed, and must accommodate regardless.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that a large staff is present for all days. It saves money to cut shifts, and keep fewer people on the schedule, but production and worker morale will slip.

    Pros

    It was relatively easy to get days off that you needed and the discount is amazing!

    Cons

    "Big brother" unnecessarily made the work environment very tense at times, which caused a negative ripple effect throughout the rest of the staff.

    Pros

    The Under Armour Brand is absolutely amazing. Working at the Retail Store level can be challenging but so is most retail work. Under Armour thrives on being the underdog which is such an inspiring thing. The Brand Mission: Make all athletes better through passion, design, and the relentless persuit of innovation." Who wouldnt buy into that?!?

    Cons

    Zero ability to grow. To move from the Retail Fleet to Corporate is luck of the draw. They constantly say you need expereince to be able to obtain even entry level corporate positions but dont offer any way of gaining that experience at all. Like I said they are a great Brand but the growing pains are excrutiating. Its really sad but they are losing a ton of great people because of it. You would think getting expereince in the stores would be beneficial but then they hire interns and kids right out of college with no expereince over people with years of store expereince. They constantly harp on how they promote from within which isnt really true at all and they have no system to actually develop the people they have. It encourages a lot of people to leave and try to get experience elsewhere in hopes they can one day come back...that is if the new companies they leave too dont treat them too well to want to go back to UA.

    Advice to Management

    Create a system to inspire growth and development of your own people...seems like common sense...you would think.

    Pros

    Its a fun environment, that allows you to grow from a sales Point of view, and helps your face to face costumer service skills.

    Cons

    The place I worked at had concrete floors. This means walking around non-stop for 8-12 hours, it can be brutal on the feet if you don't buy the right shoes.

    Pros

    You get a 50% employee discount on everything throughout the whole store. Who doesn't love a good discount??

    Cons

    The only downside I had at my store was the I wasn't paid fairly due to my title at my workplace. Sales Associates had a higher pay than I did.

    Advice to Management

    I would say just to coach each associate on a personal level and treat us like slaves.
