    I worked at Reebok as an intern

    Pros

    Company culture is great! Hard-working, passionate, fitness oriented people.

    Culture is very much geared toward CrossFit - can be a great or not so great thing depending on the person.

    I worked at Reebok full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fitness center, plenty of money, big brand appeal. The people are the best part of this company. Also it's a healthy culture. the environment is great too.

    Cons

    Lots of past layoffs, not organized. They don't seem to have a handle on the brand and what they are and want to be. Adidas is vampiring the brand daily. They will never be on level with Nike again. Adidas will never let that happen.

    Pros

    Discount is good. Works at rebook and adidas. Not much else good to say. They reward for lies and tattling.

    Cons

    Paperwork training. Area and district managers ASK for dirt on assistant and store managers, if you don't have any, they ask you to find some for promotion. Very sketchy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper managers are shady and a liability. You are a law suit waiting to happen. I was asked constantly about me sm and asm and their performance. My area manager promised promotions for poor evals and false info, looking for a new job

    Great potential, but weak brand management

    I worked at Reebok

    Pros

    Great campus and facilities. The spirit of the company feels young, energetic and ambitious.

    Cons

    External brand perception limits the success of most product or marketing initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps worth looking at a deeper brand focus beyond crossfit!? Can this niche avenue support such a large global brand....

    Pros

    Fun place to work. A lot of amenities: good benefits, Starbucks, gym, dry cleaning, large cafe, track around building.

    Cons

    They should do more to promote work- life balance for working parents. I wish they offered job share, part time, & work from home part of the week opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer job share & part time positions. I think employees would be twice as productive in the time they are at work, because they don't have 40 hours that week to complete all of the work.

    Former Employee - Third Key Holder in Oklahoma City, OK (US)

    I worked at Reebok full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent employee discount. Initial training during store opening was in depth and regional manager was hands on and readily available.
    Fun sales contests for employees and friendly competitions with other Rebook Outlets.
    Excellent brand which makes it easy to get excited about on the sales floor.
    Company stands by their product 100% with valuable warranty's and easy to understand return/exchange policies.

    Cons

    Time off requests required employees to find their own replacement for a shift, including management. Not unreasonable except 3rd Key Holder was not allowed to use any employee below them or salaried manager to cover their shift which left them no alternatives.
      3rd Key Holder has no guarantee of full time hours, even though the job description says full time. Shifts acting as manager on duty were required but employee was subject to intense review from store manager after every shift.
    3rd Key Holder, while acting as manager on duty, was required to open and close the store alone. However, employee was restricted from certain managerial duties and actions regarding customers.
    Part-Time employees were not guaranteed hours.
    Frequent employee and manager turnover.
    Employees do not work on commission but are required to fill a sales and item per transaction quota each shift which was subject to review each week.
    Required sales quota made for a stressful work environment.
    Intense scrutiny from store manager created a stressful work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store manager should allow staff to do their jobs as per their job description. Consider their opinions on store merchandising and sales strategies to optimize their talents and production within the company.
    When you ask for suggestions and opinions, don't be so quick to dismiss them because you disagree with them.
     Give management the benefit of the doubt and stop relying on employee gossip to determine how your managers are performing.
    Do not tell your current employee during an interview for an advanced position, that you are confident they can do the job but you are hiring someone else!
    Realize that customers come first and the world will not stop if one single bin is not completely filled the night before or a mirror was not polished. Employees are paid hourly and any time over their schedule is severely frowned upon so something might be missed.

    Cons

    -long hours/ minimal pay

    -constant change in processes and procedure, consistently trying to adapt to a new culture. Very little time to evaluate processes when constantly adapting to new

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus on European style work ethic. Less focus on hitting targets, and more 'people focus' (customers and employees). Understand your employees want you to succeed, but you need to show your employees a sense of ownership and stability
