    Recharge your battery with PUMA Flex

    Many smartphone users worry about running out of battery power. My phone battery only lasts for 6 hours at the most. They say that in order to prolong battery life, we should not repeatedly let the battery run down til 0% but recharge it before it goes under 30%.

For 70 years, PUMA has relentlessly pushed sport and culture forward by creating fast products for the world’s fastest athletes. Our Headquarters lies at the center of it all. Everything about our working culture is built to inspire our Speed & Spirit to become our best selves and unleash the work of our lives.

But what’s work without play? Our Headquarters is built around our sporting lifestyle, from our organic canteen to on-site soccer fields and basketball courts to a variety of indoor sports activities and a brand-new gym. There’s always plenty of action going on to inspire our Speed & Spirit.

PUMA Global Headquarters with over 1000 employees, is located in the heart of Herzogenaurach in Southern Germany, in-between Frankfurt and Munich. Anyone with a sporting mind-set will thrive here and the locals will tell you that Herzo combines a cosy Franconian atmosphere with a global attitude.

PUMA Brands

The PUMA Group owns the brands PUMA and Cobra Golf as well as the affiliate company Dobotex. These brands are closely interlinked with PUMA’s core business and will adapt and implement PUMA's new brand direction under the Forever Faster platform for their own strategies.


Cobra Golf

Cobra Golf, acquired in 2010, is fully integrated into the PUMA Group as COBRA PUMA GOLF. This has enabled PUMA to provide a complete range of golfing products to the consumer and to become an important player in the golf sector. As a result, COBRA PUMA GOLF has strengthened its position in the golf business demonstrating further momentum and growth. The primary focus remains the USA and Japan, as well as Korea, the UK and the Scandinavian region.

Dobotex

Dobotex, founded in 1979 and located in Den Bosch, Netherlands, develops, produces and distributes socks and bodywear for PUMA, as well as socks for well-known brand-name companies. The licensing business will be further expanded going forward to encompass other top international brands.

Who are we looking for?

At PUMA, we go fast, but like PUMA founder Rudolf Dassler says, speed is nothing, if we leave our PUMA spirit behind. That same SPEED & SPIRIT is what drives us today, and it’s what we look for in candidates looking to help us push sport and fashion forward.

Self-driven and passionate performers, who exhibit a knack for out of the box thinking, tend to do well here. But most of all, you need to be a team player.

With over 60 nationalities represented in our headquarters, we attract the best people from all over the globe, and are proud to have one of the strongest talent development programs around. So, if you want to accelerate your career in a dynamic and empowering work environment, show us your SPEED & SPIRIT, and blow us all away.

So you’ve made the decision to apply to PUMA. That’s great, we’re excited. A little advice?

To help us succeed at PUMA we also keep some simple values in mind to guide our daily work. They encourage us to BE DRIVEN in our performance, BE VIBRANT in our sporting legacy, BE TOGETHER in our team spirit, and BE YOU, so that our individual talents and experiences are always brought to the table.

Like we said, simple, but also highly motivating. Now you know a little more about us, we look forward to learning more about you.

When it comes to impressing us, we’re not a difficult bunch, but we are demanding.

Most successful candidates separate themselves by presenting a motivating personality and skillset with a clear perspective on their potential impact on PUMA. Here are some questions to think about when applying:

 

  • Why you? Convince us that you are the best fit for the position.
  • What makes you unique? Tell us how your personality makes you special.
  • Why PUMA? What makes us the best employer for you?
  • What do you think it takes to succeed at PUMA? What separates you from the pack?

 

Lastly, if you get invited to meet us, just remember that at PUMA, every day is casual Friday, so relax and leave suit and tie at home.


Applying for a job at PUMA is easy. Just go to our career page and apply online. Simply open your preferred job posting, click APPLY ONLINE and follow the steps for uploading your application. And remember, we are an international company, so English is our corporate language.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PUMA (London, England) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A disgrace of a process. Applied via a recruiter for Retail Store Manager role in London & recruiter agreed background in Sports retail for another Brand was ideal. Offered a Skype interview with Benelux Area Manager which was arranged for a couple of days ahead to allow me time to travel to London to view the store & form an opinion on what I would do if successful. The interview time came with me in front on my PC, & NOTHING. No call from the scheduled interviewer. Recruiter phoned me 20 mins later & asked how I'd got on & I had to say I'd heard nothing from the company. He then chased up Puma who said they'd dropped their interest in me as I hadn't been available for the Skype!!!! Days of calling the recruiter followed, however I was completely ignored by everyone & gave up, as why would I work for a business that behaves in this way at the interview stage. Whole process cost me time & money & the business behaved in possibly the most disrespectful & unprofessional way towards me. Avoid.
