Typical day at work is always exciting! You get to engage with so many different characters and always have the opportunity to learn. A typical day can include anything from coaching conversations, inventory, cash handling, paperwork and group events.
I have learned a ton at adidas, the one topic I find I use daily is management coaching styles. Everyone has a different coaching style; respect goes a very long way and you have to approach each situation delicately.
My manager and DM have always been super helpful and provide any resources needed at any time. The management team really does go above and beyond for their business and team members. You become a little family and everybody has a support system.
The adidas workplace culture is quite unique in the fact that it is overly relaxed. You get to wear their comfy sporty product to work everyday. You are always learning and bettering yourself.
The hardest part of my job is coaching staff at my young age, learning how to adapt to different scenarios and not always judge a book by its cover. Everybody always has something going on in their lives whether work or personal you have to learn when to listen and when to lead firmly.
The most enjoyable part of my job is connecting, engaging, and inspiring with our customers daily! My other favorite is our little adidas family! At adidas there is families within families within families. It is amazing how many people end up being connected and engaging on such a high level
I worked for Adidas for a couple years. Throughout the years you start to see really how bad this company is. At the start everything was good, pay was minimum wage to start ( and it stays like that for a very, very long time) but as you stay there everything just turns you more and more sour. Upper management is a complete joke, it's all friends of friends running head office and the stores. From these friends and friends you'll soon see the complete incompetence that follows. If you are someone who works hard and has a brain, this might not be the best place to work. Any/all of your tasks or even sales go unrecognized, you only get contacted if you're getting in trouble for a lack of sales. Management at store level is just as bad as upper management, they're lazy and very slow at doing very simple tasks. The wage is slightly above minimum wage. Employees get raises for literally just standing there, sales targets and employee reviews are ignored completely. If you're making 4x the number of sales as someone else don't expect to get anything special, they'll get treated the same as you (unless of course you're buddies with management or know someone at HQ). Also, don't expect any promotions unless you know someone in upper management.
If you're a hard working individual I would go against getting a job with the Adidas Group.
If you like to lazily stand around and do nothing all day while getting paid then this is the job for you.
Points positifsDiscount and product is good.
Points négatifsUpper management / Store level management is a complete joke.
Loved working at Adidas. People were great to work with. Very clean, coffee,tea and hot chocolate available everyday. Our department had pizza days once a month. Was there almost 3 years. Every 3 months they renew your contract. When they no longer need you, you’ll receive an email when you get home. Never will they tell you face to face. If you hope to get hired full time, it’s probably not going to happen. They always work through a temp agency. There are several shifts you could work. All shifts are 10 and 12 hour. Very long days. Expect to be placed in other departments if you get slow in yours. You will learn different jobs in the warehouse. That’s a plus. The more jobs you learn the longer you could be working. I was lucky, I got to learn 5 different departments to work in. Some supervisors are not the nicest, so always appear busy. They don’t mind you talking but keep it to a minimum and move on. Adidas has bbq’s / ice cream days in the parking lot in summer. There’s a million sq ft of building. It’s big and clean. Can be lots of walking depending on where your department is. Very large lunchroom with many microwaves and fridges.
Points positifsClean/ Good working conditions. Treats temps good.
Points négatifsManagement favour certain people/ no bus service available.
i cannot believe adidas would allow a store to be run like this one. i guess as long as the store is making money then they do not care how its employees are treated.
the manager, assistant manager, and majority of the team leads have no business being in charge of a lemonade stand let alone a store. they all have attitude problems and demand respect without actually deserving it or respecting everyone else. they do absolutely zero work and treat the people who actually do all of the work like garbage. they boss the minimum wage workers around, and then go sit in the office to use their phones, computers, eat, and talk. they take multiple breaks a day but will get mad at minimum wage employees when they take a break for literally five seconds. management gets all the praise for the store doing so well despite the fact that the minimum wage employees are doing all the hard work.
it is evident that adidas only cares about management and money rather than creating a welcoming environment for all of its workers, despite preaching inclusion.
Last summer (2018) through the Randstad office I started working at Adidas. It was great. Long hours but it was alright. People were great. About 3 months in or just before I got a call. Saying I was no longer needed. I originally was on the day shift. But i switch to the weekend shift for school. And once I got a call saying I was no longer needed I was like okay, maybe they can call me back next summer. I told Randstad over the winter break I could come in but they said I couldn't and they can't place me there. I asked to be placed there as I was looking for full time hours. Called in many many times, emailed many times, they said I can't work there anymore? Like they won't place me there. Even though there are ads and placements available all the time in their afternoon, night and shipping positions. And they write Adidas is looking for long term work. Just be wary of Randstad. They also sometimes mess up the weekly pay. I'm not sure what I can do to try to get a placement back there. It was a great environment. Not sure if anything can be posted underneath, but if it is possible do write any advice!
I have worked here for several years and have learned a lot, Supervior’s and management are 2 faced, mostly young kids as they are willing to work for what Adidas is willing to pay which is low. Supervior’s are immature and don’t treat there staff well. You will get yelled at for asking questions. They are constantly changing the way they want you to do your job which is weekly.
Most managers and supervisors will throw you under the bus, and blame someone else for their mess ups.
Wages are low job is very stressful. The company likes to waste money on unnecessary things instead of paying better wages. Benefits use to be great but they cut them down.
Huge favouritism in the DC it’s the only way to move up in the company.
I love my actual job but having changes constantly is very unprofessional when I have to deal with customer service related activities to do my job.
The managers and supervisors have never done the actual job they are managing or supervising so explaining anything to them is a waste of time and not understood.
It’s a job for now.
Points positifsGood RRSP and has benefits
Points négatifsPay low, really hard to move up in the company
Most days at adidas revolve around the day-to-day stuff, so sales associates are expected to work on the floor with minimal supervisor or assistance from management. Although the job itself is straight forward (building rapport, selling product, maintaining cleanliness), most staff are either young or seasonal which meant there were always some people not doing what's expected. Management won't alleviate the tension but instead play favourites, leaving some employees feeling uneasy or simply under-appreciated. Overtime the environment becomes toxic, so unless you're moving up in the company there's no reason to dedicate time to a dead-end job. As someone who spent years working for adidas and didn't get much more than the occasional "good job today", I recommend working some place with more recognition and respect for their part time employees. Unless you're a student or working seasonally for a few extra bucks, I doubt this is the job for you.
- Would begin the day by restocking items, and made sure the work environment was clean and tidy. Then we would open doors to customers, and I would be cashier my whole shift. I would do tasks of checking people out, doing many different types of purchase transactions, and greeting customers.
- I learned more about how critical it is for us to be perfect on the job, because it was critical to checkout people's purchases in a timely manner so we do not produce a huge line of customers waiting to purchase their items.
- Management was very friendly and helpful, they trained us very well so that we can be an efficient and effective worker.
- Co-Workers were all supportive and friendly as they would help each other out with problems and concerns
- Hardest part of the job was saying goodbye, because it was a great job and work environment but school prevented me from continuing to work there.
-My most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with customers.
Points positifsTrained very well and a lot of Customer Interaction
The actual job is easy. Quite repetitive yet easy enough. You are pushed to work harder and faster with no incentives. Temps work here for years without being hired on despite the need for them. Management are all rude and unhelpful. You see your supervisor for a morning meeting then they just glare from their desks and take a million breaks. The pay is awful. You could walk in anywhere and get paid what they pay here despite it being a multi billion dollar company. I couldn't afford to keep my job here when I quit. No Christmas parties, no family bbq, just the occasional lunch and an employee discount (yet still can't afford their over priced sweatshop merchandise because you can barely afford groceries with what they pay you). One lousy bonus a year as you hear of lazy supervisors getting thousands of dollars. The hours are the best thing about this place.
Do not waste your time here.
Points négatifsPay, management, zero incentives

Working there used to be awesome
Since new management has came in everything has changed, you work like you’re a slave in a prison ward , theirs management yelling at staff, but HR and upper management are so buddy buddy no one wants to say anything, or voice their concerns about how they’re being treated .
Glad to hear lots of people are leaving once they get their bonuses in March. Can’t treat people like that and then expect them to stay.
I used to love working here, the pay was decent and I knew I had a paycheck coming in all the time. But at this point, I don’t care. I don’t get paid enough to be pushed and pulled around like a dummy.
Only work here as a temp job. Or maybe on weekdays or weekends but not weekday nights. You WILL be treated like trash.

Truly the worst job I've had. Turned me off retail and Adidas
Took a month for the store to finalise my hiring process. Which basically meant I missed out on other job opportunities while I was waiting. I found out this was a common practice for Adidas. Finally started the job really hopeful and excited to be working for a brand that I like. Quickly realised how bad the situation was at the Perth outlet store. My "training" was never officially completed which led to me being confused and never able to answer questions customers had about products. The actual amount of stock that we had at our store was so overwhelming that we could never find items that we knew we probably had, but could never physically reach it. More experienced staff would constantly comment on how the back warehouse should not be in this kind of condition. I then learnt that we were basically the dumping ground for all Adidas stock in the country. We felt completely neglected as a store.
The main issue that I ran into while working here was the fact that a 2ic manager had been hired who was completely unqualified for their position. This was so blatantly obvious to everyone who worked there, that we completely ceased to work effectively as a team. This manager had no intention of helping staff or using their position to make head office know how bad the stock situation was at our location. To say that there was a divide between this manager and the rest of the staff is an understatement. Issues such as arriving late to work (staff and customers would have to wai
Начну с того, что это не первая моя работа и не первое трудоустройство. Я всякое повидала, но ситуация с этой компанией крайне огорчила меня.
Скажу то, что это не первая моя попытка устроиться в эту компанию. Обещания работодателя, да и отзывы знакомых заставили меня заинтересоваться работой. Но в какие бы я магазины не отправляла заявки, мне, как правило, отказывали. Ну и бог с этим. Не так страшно. Не давно я снова оставила краткий запрос о трудоустройстве на их сайте и вскоре мне на почту пришел ответ с просьбой подробнее рассказать о себе, эдакое развернутое резюме. Самые обычные, стандартные вопросы. Быстро на них ответив и отправив ответным письмом, я начала ждать хоть какого-нибудь ответа. Он себя ждать не заставил: написала в ватсап девушка, представившись Юлей и сказала, что перезвонит завтра, так как до меня она дозвониться никак не смогла (что немудрено. Телефон у меня глючит и бывает не показывает мне звонок). Первое, что меня удивило (больше приятно) сразу же обращение на "ты". Это не плохо, многие большие компании практикуют подобное обращение. Второе: что девушка не забила и нашла способ связаться со мной. Тут я подумала, что все сложится наверняка. Но...нет. Позвонили мне, увы, после моего вопроса, мол, я ваш звонок не пропустила? И то, не сразу, а спустя время. Юля оказалась девушкой приятной и приветливой, поспрашивала самые обычные вопросы, на подобие: почему наша компания? Ваши увлечения и так далее.После же пообещала написать или позвонить вечером с реше

adidas is an interesting place to work. On one hand I had fantastic direct managers who genuinely cared for me and my work, but at the same time their managers could care less about me or my work and were seemingly only focused on the bottom line.
Additionally, the work and projects were great for my career development, allowing me to learn so much in a short amount of time, but at the same time the projects often felt meaningless in the grand scheme of things with so many other folks working on nearly the exact same projects.
While I was able to build a great resume while working at adidas, allowing me to move into a better role at a better company, my biggest issue with working at adidas relates to the companies policies and practice around advancement. This is an organization that loves to highlight and reward it's high achievers with praise, financial incentives, and the never ending promise of a promotion on the horizon. I would know, I received exceptional yearly reviews every year and maximum bonuses, all the while being told that I was ready to "take on the next big role" or that my promotion was "just around the corner". I was literally told this for years, and I just kept my head down, sacrificing my home life to ensure that I could get that next step up. But it never happened, just more and more lip service, intended to keep me working hard.
Then the pandemic hit and I was laid off (actually laid off the day before anyone thought to tell me. I even went to meet
Points positifsGreat experience, good managers, discounts, lots of PTO, flexible work hours
Points négatifsAwful HR, terrible workplace culture, employees are just an expense at the end of the day
Working at Adidas could be a blessing or a curse, depending on the day. Overall, the highlights of employment were enough to override the cons. The culture and the people that they employed were young, energetic, and positive people who shared a love for sports and fashion. The best part about the job was the fact that everyone seemed to care for one another and there was always someone who was willing to help develop you to the next level. Benefits were great, especially if it was your first full-time job.
The most difficult part of the job was the management and it's culture. At first, management led by example and genuinely wanted to help people move forward with their career aspirations. Now, the management team is beholden to sales goals and deadlines that take up the vast majority of their time. Managers also spent a majority of their time either working on office tasks, creating presentations for meetings, or "browsing" their emails. The focus on the associates and the team fell to the way side and the management team basically became a team of well-paid office clerks while the day-to-day managerial tasks fell to "elevated" associates. Most of these associates have no managerial experience but are expected to oversee store operations, delegate breaks and meal periods, and deal with corrective actions to their fellow associates. Not to mention, most of these elevated associates were making barely above minimum wage, not early enough to justify their new responsibili

A typical day at Adidas would is coming in, clocking in, getting huddled in by your store manager or team leader & then going to work. A huddle is when you're being told who the top performers of the previous day were, today's store goal, weather or not we passed yesterday's goal, and anything else needed that'll make the store run more smoothly, like what the week's sales are and when they're going to end.
I learned a lot about sports performance sneakers, originals, and Adidas' apparel. It's more to it than I thought. At first it felt like a lot, but that was because I was completely new to it. I didn't know anything about it, but once you get the hang of it, it'll come so easy to you. The information about the products are definitely essential as a sales associate who spends a lot of time on the floor, assisting customers.
My Store Manager is cool, I like him. He's very flexible and empathetic yet he gets down to business at the same time. My team leaders are great for the most part, I feel secure in being taught by them and guided by them because they know what they are doing and have time under their belt. They also don't look at us sales associates like we're lower than them. I have respect for them.
My co-workers are good. There is always a good vibe at work. There are many jokes being passed during the day & lots of smiles. My co-workers make it easier to work and more enjoyable. The thing about my co-workers and I, is we know how to compliment each other and

Customer Service Representative | Carlsbad, CA | 22 juill. 2013
Fast paced, but fun work enviornment. Required very high organizational skills.
I enjoyed every minute of my time at TaylorMade. I commuted 162 miles daily while taking care of my Grandpa so my workday began at 3:00 AM. I balanced the customer service line which included general consumers and retail accounts. Calls ranged from warranty issues, to placing orders or just general product questions, up selling was always encouraged and I excelled in this area. I later took on the role of a Territory Sales Support Representative and managed six accounts in Mexico which were difficult because of international shipping, payment, and communication issues. Along with this I supported a small territory in Southern CA, which included appx. ten accounts. Balancing all my duties was difficult at times but was extremely gratifying at the end of the day. Management was always supportive and my co-workers and I always worked together which made things very easy. TaylorMade strengthened my skills in so many areas such as customer relations, organization, and successfully meeting deadlines. I was very honored to be personally invited by President Mark King into The Red Hat Club which very few employees were included. I received this honor by dedication, and going way beyond the call of duty to provide the absolute best service possible. This award included a personal Lunch with Mark King and less than 40 individuals in the history of the company ever received this honor. I also was given the assignment of itemizing, organizing, and shipping products to TaylorMade's bigges
Points positifsGreat management, fun outside activities and outings.
Points négatifsThe location was the only thing I can say hurt.
I was in IC during my time at adidas, and its fair to say that this is actually a review of TFE Logistics who is contracted by adidas to handle the day to day operations of the Distribution Center.
It is also fair to say that my overall experience at TFE was not terrible, I made a few friends there that i still speak with and generally i did not dislike my job. but overall this is not a good place to work. the pay is incredibly low for most positions, even management positions compared to other Warehouse/DC jobs. management opportunities are largely about who you know, not what you know. and there is a huge culture of distrust within senior management because they are trying to cling to that little control they actually have. if you smoke they are very anti smoker and you wind up standing in the street or riding around in your car if you want to get one. also having a cellphone on your person and having someone catch you with it is a terminable offense. its a large facility, and if something were to happen to you, it might be hours before someone actually finds you.
I was actually let go due to absences because my supervisor did not give my paperwork from the hospital to HR. i will say that HR did in fact try to reverse the decision at corporate in atlanta after finding that out, but ultimately that was too late. the biggest reason i think this oversight took place was due to what i said above, if supervisors feel like their little grasp of power was threatened, they w
