    I worked at Under Armour part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, easy job, the managers are usually fairly young so they can relate to the workers.

    Cons

    No training, the job is easy but it will be difficult at fist to find all of the clothes that shoppers are asking for.

    Advice to Management

    Do a short training first day on the job so your employees can hit the ground running.

    I worked at Under Armour part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -> 50% off of merchandise from any Under Armour, including online Under Armour. -> Benefits turn on after a set time of working with company -> College graduates who have insightful stories of what they wanted to become, yet have settled for this because of the repayment of student debt. (A plus because you do not feel like a let down, when you find out others have ended up here, despite their intentions prior to college graduation.) ->Sometimes there are snacks provided to staff, depending on the mood of the supervisor, which is not their responsibilities, yet when you constantly get team members use to it, it can become a problem.

    Cons

    -> Too many employees hired, not enough time in the schedule for people (especially students) to earn a decent check. Not sure about many college graduates, yet earning just crossing the $200 USD mark on a check, may not be enough for a monthly loan repayment plan. -> Schedules are so booked that the store may even call you to not come in that day. -> Small space of operations, plus the (sarcasm) wonderfully large table for employees to sit at when on break. -> Being mindful to those who are rude, one cannot simply apply the "kill them with kindness" notion here, most people that come into the store want the sales associate of a short time to know every week's sale. What happens when that sales associate isnt scheduled to work due to so many new hires, that he/she does not know what is entirely new or varied, until he/she steps in the door and is briefed on the new setup?

    Advice to Management

    Smaller volume stores do not really drive sales, because of the competition among other stores and possibly price arranging. When prices fluctuate every week, an avid shopper may feeling like they are being ripped off, when the item was such amount the prior week and now is at a 20%-30% increase in price this week. High volume stores equate to enormous amounts of revenue brought in, while lower volume stores are only in the contending foot race of sales because of luck. Who knows if the stores in the vicinity are doing exceptionally well and can afford those bigger price cuts, it is simple consumer mentality, lower prices at a mall will draw more people, versus a name brand that is high priced and well-known. Consumers like options, so do not be surprised if the competing athletic wear store "a couple doors down" is giving consumers an alternative to similar product(s).

    I have been working at Under Armour full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Themes: Strong founder. Growth is off the charts. Focus on innovation. Good employee benefits. Takeaway: Company is growing and there are lots of opportunities to be successful depending what part of the business you support.

    Cons

    Themes: Poorly organized. Lack of collaboration. Terrible communication. Zero empowerment. Recent company acquisitions have been a mess. Takeaway: Don't be drawn in by the success of the brand. Save yourself a year or two of your career and don't bother joining Under Armour especially the digital division.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to amass an army of start people. Set clear goals and expectations.

    Pros

    Thrilling brand. The company is currently experiencing explosive growth and there is a lot of room for growth and to harness whatever it is that you want to focus on. Baltimore is a cheap and accessible city to live in. A short bus ride away from DC, Philly, and NYC.

    Cons

    Growing pains of such a company that is growing so fast. Creative process and management are far from being stablished as the environment is rapidly evolving and changing. Expect re-orgs every 6-8 months. Baltimore is not a diverse/eclectic city, it's common to meet people who have never left Maryland making the city environment feel a bit under developed not to say ignorant, in a big city context. Not the most exciting city to be a creative and to feel challenged.

    Advice to Management

    Invest on internal talent instead of external assets such as agencies and new employees.

    Hire within the company and have a better management training program. And have a higher pay equivalent to competitor such as Nike.
