    Cons

    Long 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make 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

    Pros

    New company compared to retail industry standards with numerous career opportunities. Great employee discount on merchandise. Considerable networking opportunities in the athletic industry.

    Pros

    Great discount with 50% off all merchandise. All Management staff except store manager were great to work with. Employes are tons of fun and energetic.

    Cons

    Spotty schedule, as an associate manager the schedule change so much its hard to have a personal life. Store manager wanted everything herself. Everything is about her and how large bonus can get. Not too much care about our ideas or anything we were excited to share. Store manager had more that 60 people and counting quit in less than one year period because none of them liked her attitude and outlook. No opportunities for growth in move up in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to get to know people in the retail business. We as managers always want to help people on their way but the upper management did not care one bit on personal growth or personal life.

    Pros

    Great employee discount, great team work environment, great employee stock purchase program after probationary period. The company has great sales associates and store managers but lacks in the regional and upper management area. The company does have very strong values towards their customers and producing quality products.

    Cons

    Logistics of transport and sales promotions seem to have zero reasoning behind what happens. Zero effective changes are put in place, when the associates and store managers highlight something thats wrong.

    Pros

    Most of the people working with me were fine. I love the product, I loved selling the product. At first my schedule was easy to work with a second and third job.

    Cons

    They allowed a Store Manager to disparage me and my lifestyle to my co-workers. She gave me poor performance reviews because I am gay and because I am overweight. She would completely cut my hours five minutes before I came in and then say it was cut days ago. She berated me on the floor in front of customers about something I did that she told me to do because I did it the way she told me to do it. The she refused to allow me, a part time worker, to change my availability due to my partner's job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take complaints more seriously. Talk to more people then just the manager who the complaint is against. Talk to the co-workers and other part time workers.

    Pros

    discount 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

    Cons

    Corporate 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 ManagementAdvice

    HR - 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat 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!
