  3. "Too much trust in new manager even though he was tearing team apart for personal promotion chances"

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Sydney

    I worked at PUMA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Usually great working environment Learn a lot about sports apparel and footwear Teaching product knowledge

    Cons

    Sometimes not recognising effort put in by team members

    Advice to Management

    Shouldn’t always trust 100% of new managers over employees there for 5yrs and later knowing that they were tearing team apart for personal advancement opportunities. Even though proven what they where doing wrong but still decided to listen to their new managers stories of all talk but no outcome in improving KPIs and reaching monthly targets ( yes I’m talking about the manager that only did under $300 store sales... for a day at your one of your new full price stores). Trust me it was better that he has left now.

    I have been working at PUMA part-time

    Pros

    employe discount, flexible work schedule, good environment

    Cons

    Management seems to only care about their opinion when it comes to placing employees in their 'designated zones' for their shift

    Advice to Management

    Please give us an opportunity to work in a different zone, otherwise we'll become unmotivated to work because of how repetitive everything is
