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

    Pros

    - Great atmosphere to work with
    - Great sale on Adidas and Reebok products
    - Good training

    Cons

    - Hard to bring change in a store while almost everything has to be manage/do according to the corporates.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunities to your in-store management team to bring personal change in their environment. They run the business everyday and are the best people to know where to implement new things or fix the old ones.

    Pros

    Reebok is a great company to work for.
    They have great benefits, work life balance. Great people

    Cons

    Since moving to Boston the pay does not always reflect "city" pay

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you know all your employees. Speak to them. Don't just take the managers word for things

    I worked at Reebok part-time

    Pros

    Good job to have while in school. Co-workers were great and a pretty good discount on store items

    Cons

    Managers put a lot of pressure on reaching weekly goals, which can be tough when there's low customer traffic. We also wouldn't have enough inventory on popular items

    Pros

    Discounts
    Somewhat fun atmosphere
    Dress code is relaxed
    Events and travel opportunities

    Cons

    Upper management is extremely Illogical with expectations. You receive about 60% of the payroll to take care of the store and the rest you're just left to struggle with and you end up losing money in your store because you can't get product to the floor to sell. Every day is a constant scramble and no support is given. This causes you to get harassed about conversion and sales on a weekly basis. Company has zero recognition for good talent and continues pushing great and dedicated employees out the door. If you are promised something (Such as a promotion) and aren't immediately offered. Don't expect it to happen because the company will "Restructure" and all your opportunity (Along with your will to help the company succeed) will go right out of the window. Stores will run for years at a time without Store Managers or Assistant Managers, leaving entry level Team Leaders to take the heat for they technically should not be responsible for
    Upper management has no experience in an actual retail store and it shows.

    Advice to Management

    "Restructure" the upper management and get qualified individuals into the company who want to make positive change.

    I worked at Reebok part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good starting job in retail. There is possibility to move up, but varies by store. Discount is good. If interested in CrossFit there is possible involvement in CrossFit events (games, regionals, etc). They work very well with your schedule. Associates are really good to work with.

    Cons

    Too much focus on sales. The company wants you to sell no matter what the situation is. There could be a blizzard outside and if the only person that comes is to warm up they expect you to make that person purchase the stores daily goal. saying that, stores are open during terrible weather, and holidays, no option to have holidays off. Moving up on the company is different at every store, at one store I saw multiple people move up over a year, at another only 1 and though both have very similar turn over of employees. Human Resources is terribly slow, took them months update their policies when state laws changed. Saw a big problem with favoritism, so expect to be treated unequally to others.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunities for growth, use parent company as a platform; it will minimize the high turnover of employees. Improve Human Resources operations, people shouldn’t have to wait months for minimum wage increases. Store management throw things under the rug, corporate need to be more involved in instore problems by speaking directly to sales and stock associates because they are berated by store management for giving “complaints”.
