Cons

Repetitive work, can get boring

Current Employee - Sales Associate

I have been working at adidas part-time for more than a year

Pros

Easy face paced environment so your shift goes by fast. Coworkers were cool. Essentially your getting paid 15.00 to stand around and greet customers

Cons

Shifts were unfair for example, you may be scheduled to close and then open the next morning. Managers micromanage a ton. You are forced to ask for emails and surveys
