Relaxed and great team to work with.

The culture was incredibly laid back. The manager was involved and spent a lot of time on site. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting the Adidas attire and keeping it.

Pros

Free attire

Cons

Long hours (retail)

Productive workplace

Pros: fun culture and great teamwork, being able to talk and communicate with different people each day Cons: very little room for growth you will be in the same position no matter how hard and dedicated you work, management didn’t know how to be a good leader but rather always instilled fear to reach targets

Product and fun workplace

It was fun working at adidas for festive season.Assiting customers about choosing the right product was hectic and dealing with impatient customers was also hectic but convienced them in a patient manner. I learnt that there was alot of sales competition and the sale was very good in such a way that it helped customers purchase affordable goods and also it had a positive impact on the company.The management was excellent and the workplace culture was also interesting.

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

Long hours and standing the whole day.

Good company to work for given the correct manager

I’ve worked for adidas since I have matriculated and it’s a good company to work for, they make you feel like family. There are times when working under pressure seems like the end but the reward is greater

Pros

medical aid and staff discount

Cons

Long hours and overworked

Very productive and fun workspace.

The workspace and how you much you enjoy it is based on your colleagues. If you don't get along with them you are doomed. Teamwork is essential. If you want to progress in the company be open about it. The work is never ending because you need to have the store at high retail standards at all cost. The work can be a bit of an overload at times. Again teamwork.. also managers constantly change. If avoid be a 'teachers pet'. Every manager has their own expectations and goals, so learn to adapt. And oh salaries are always an issue.

Pros

The uniform is free ( just don't leave within 6 months)

Cons

Conflicts, workload and inconsistent salaries

Best place to work at

Amazing staff . Very well grounded and secure . It's more like a family than it is employees . The dynamic in the store is great and always an energetic vibe , which keeps you going

Depends on the store you at.

It's not that bad, depends on whose your boss and what kind of people your colleagues are. But you constantly reminded that business first you later. I don't have much to say.

I'm happy with my current employment

At Adidas we are all about team work. Team challenges. Team game changers. On a typical day we come in a hour before shift... Prep paper work. Have a team huddle and we make sure all team members are in good shape to start the day. We have a great and enthusiastic management team and we often get training on products in store. I think retail in general is challenging. Most enjoyable part? Everyday is a good day!

Productive and fun place

Working at this particular store was amazing. The people I worked with were genuine, fun people who made me feel welcome and at home. The job was intense around sale periods and end of the year but it was always manageable. Working at Adidas has taught me alot and for that I am greatful.
