    Pros

    Relaxed environment, encouraging team, representing a great brand, a discount policy that isn't strict

    Cons

    Never getting more than 20 hours on average unless you take others shifts or are a lead. The career opportunities as a sales associate are relatively dead end unless you network with individuals from head quarters.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at adidas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked there as a team lead in the retail sector. The environment is fun, and while there are sales targets like any other business, you are encouraged to just provide customer service. The fact that someone was not always harping to hit numbers made it enjoyable. As well, due to the good atmosphere, sales targets were achievable regardless. There were also good team nights.

    Cons

    The salary is horrible, and not adjusted with rising wages. The pay difference between management and a sales associate is not nearly enough to justify the increase in responsibility. Do not expect growth in the retail portion in the organization

    Advice to Management

    Respect staff more, and create more opportunities for growth
