I worked at adidas full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

great product and some great people
strong international brand with a lot of opportunity and potential for growth

Cons

commitment to US market and business structure is questionable

Advice to Management

Hire and reward talent, lose the dead weight and dont play favorites. Also, spend a little money to properly market the product in the US

    I worked at adidas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good product and merchandise meant good uniforms. Training program was good and the environment of our actual working team was excellent. Managers made other employees feel valued and the store manager valued the team leads as well. Small working environment was appreciated.

    Cons

    Salary for Management level was not great. Started at $11. Managers have been there 4 years only at 11.09. All our team leads changes in the year and half I was there. Salary was a main reason. Full time is only scheduled for 30 hours per week. Would have prefered the advertised full time job to actually be full time and 40 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    Higher salary would lead to managers staying in the position longer. Turnoiver of management was very high.
