At adidas we have been challenging the status quo for over 60 years and we’re not done yet.
We are calling all store managers who don’t accept what “was” or what “is,” but those who want to create what will be, and who share our desire to make a difference. We believe sport has the power to change lives. To bring this mission to life we foster a culture centered on creativity, confidence, and collaboration, and while we will never rest on our laurels, we are humbled that this has allowed us to be recognized as one of the “world’s most attractive employers.”
We also understand that the future runs on diverse and fresh perspectives. True to this spirit, we believe in assembling talented teams from far and wide and unite by a common goal: to change the world through sport. As an international company with over 55 thousand employees and 300 retail stores across the U.S. alone, adidas employees are exposed to different cultures, languages, and life experiences, which we believe is the fastest way to grow. The future is in your hands.
We could list tired, old bullet points about Store Manager tasks but we’re confident you already know that. Here’s a bit about the kind of leaders we look for:
Creators- If you want to build a tomorrow better than the day that came before, you’re a creator Creators find inspiration in unlikely places, look at the world in their own unique way, are confident and have an uncanny ability to connect dots that others just don’t see.
Innovators- You can dive into a complex problem and come out the other end with the simple solution no one else saw coming.
Storytellers- The reason humans have told stories since the dawn of time is because story is the most effective way to guide behavior. The stories we tell ourselves—that we’re good parents, bad cooks, and effective leaders—steer how we act every day.
Confident- Be bold and bring a fresh perspective to the table. It’s the people who see the world a little differently than the rest that create the breakthroughs that inspire us all.
Determined - Never settle. Our work space is about discovery. Competition exists...but only by competing with your personal best, not your team members. Discover your boundaries and push them. Discover your team’s strengths and build them.
Genuine- Be real. Tell it how it is. Being a leader isn’t about winning a popularity contest. Being a leader is about inspiring others to be their very best!
