    Good company, very competitive these days.

    Distribution Center Associate (Former Employee)
    Curtis Bay, MD

    ProsGood company, managed well, run well (at least in the Distribution House). The facilities, processes and technology used are top notch. Good benefits.

    ConsThe reputation has been around for years now so it is very competitive and difficult to work your way up the corporate ladder.

    Pretty good place to work. All depends on management.

    UA Teammate (Current Employee)
    Elizabeth, NJ

    ProsGood music played in the store.
    Flexible hours.
    Very very good discount. 50% off + whatever sale is going on.
    You get to work in very comfortable clothing. Sweatpants, t-shirts, shorts, sneakers.

    ConsRandom schedule hours. And usually not that many.
    Store manager is a pain to everyone.
    Can't call someone out for stealing even if they do it right in-front of you

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be overly strict about things. Employees look forward to working with managers that take the time to help them instead of criticizing them every step of the way. Also don't choose favorite employees, and if you do, don't make it obvious like my manager.

    Good with some flaws

    Team Lead (Current Employee)
    Curtis Bay, MD

    ProsBenefits are good discount at the stores is one of the best I've ever seen yearly raises opportunity to grow in the company

    ConsLong hours upper management seems to not really care about employees only about getting numbers hard to come back day after day when you don't feel like you should come in at all

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake coming to work more enjoyable have things run smoother and give employees more options to get employed at corporate even if they don't have degrees because sometimes people don't need school to be at a great job

    This company is a mess

    ASM (Former Employee)
    Rockville, MD

    Prosdiscount is great but i would still buy other athletic gear full priced because women's collection sucks. Pay isn't too bad compared to other retailers. Team i work with now is great and is what helps get through the day. Jumbo tron is on so we can watch the games

    ConsCorporate is EXTREMELY unorganized. CEO's friends have been hired in corporate and dont really seem to know the retail industy very well. Company keeps hiring from A&F corporate... why?! Corporate is great at micro managing and lecturing though emails but you will never see them "practice what they preach.'' They seem to focus on the wrong things and is slowly but surely losing lots of great employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHR - get your act together. Maybe hire people who are actually experienced NOT a friend or family friend of the CEO, emails to every single person in corporate need to be cut in half- maybe learn how to communicate with each other. Micro managing is not working and stop hiring third parties who arent even employed by UA or have no retail experience to "train" staff and bark orders.

    Under Armor Distibution center, Rialto

    Distribution Worker (Current Employee)
    Rialto, CA

    ProsGood company and good people to work for. Supervisors show good interest in there employees that work for them. These are good people!

    ConsIf you work for a temp outfit like BBSI you don't get any benifets of any kind. In addition to this, you are not given 40 hour weeks. And when you apply for the job your not told about the lose of hours. We are still working for Under Armor and this company thrives from owr hard work the same as if we were Under Armor employees. Should we be given a little more?

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your BBSI workers like you treat your own (Under Armor workers). Keep in mind that BBSI workers are importtant too. Yet we get no bennifits and our hours are cut without notice. We are people too and deserve to be treated with respect for the work we do for you. If you could just give us a little more we will return it to you. please help us to be better workers and build a great team! Thats whtat we would like to do!
