Why are you interested in working for Under Armour?
Under Armour's mission is to improve athletic performance through their products. This goal has taken them far in their industry, and it shows that they genuinely care about their customers. They care enough to research and design gear that will help their customers achieve more through using it! The interviewer wants to know that you want to work for them. Through your enthusiasm and your research, you can shine! Let them know how you were impressed with their mission and their latest innovations revealed in recent press releases. Do your homework and expect smiles all around.

Rachelle's Answer
"You are the undeniable giants in the industry. I have been planning my job with Under Armour since I graduated with my kinesiology degree. I now feel that I am ready to accelerate my career by making this move. There are so many growth opportunities here, and that truly excites me."
2.
Tell me about yourself.
Although this question can seem overwhelming, this is a great time to share a few basic facts that will help the interviewer get to know you and spark their interest. You can share a few accomplishments from your education or professional life. You can even talk about some of your interests outside of work that makes you stand out. To finish it off, sharing a goal you have for the next five years will show off your ambition and determination.

There isn't a set formula, but you want to stay away from rambling on and on about your dog and two kids. Since Under Armour sells athletic wear, you might want to talk about any extreme sports you play or a team you proudly support. Stay positive and upbeat to keep the interviewer engaged!

Rachelle's Answer
"I am a competitive individual who is driven and likes to win. In addition to my successful sales career, I also spend time playing competitive sports. I give back by volunteering at the local animal shelter and working for a variety of annual fundraisers in our community."
3.
Why do you think our brand is so popular?
There are some aspects of Under Armour that make them unique. Through doing a little research, you will find that they specialize in what they call HeatGear, ColdGear, and AllSeasonGear. They have categorized all of their inventory to meet the needs of their customers for all weather and all season. You may want to try on some of their clothing to see how it feels. You can talk about comfort, style and how they accommodate all of their customers needs through their innovative design. Just make sure you've tried out their gear before the interview. Product knowledge will score you extra points!

Rachelle's Answer
"I believe that your brand is so popular because it was founded by, and is driven, through the genuine needs of an athlete. Also, you have some incredible lines such as your All Season Gear, HOVR shoe line, and many celebrity endorsements that make you stand out from the rest."
Anonymous Answer
"Under Armour was founded by an athlete for an athlete. The brand has been very successful in creating great products that work for specifics needs like HeatGear and ColdGear. The products are also versatile; my boyfriend uses the ColdGear every time he rides his motorcycle- he swears by it. It keeps him cool, and it is thin and comfortable underneath all of his protective gear."
Rachelle's Answer
Excellent answer! You show your knowledge of the history of Under Armour and also how their products make their customers happy.

4.
Walk me through your daily routine at work.
The interviewer is curious about your work ethic and enthusiasm. You could sit there with a blank face and say, "Well I go to work, sit at my desk and complete my responsibilities..." But merely doing what is expected of you will not stand out to an interviewer.

You may have a dull routine, but think of how you have used it to make you more productive. For example, you may put everything you need to do on your calendar to stay organized and even schedule short breaks to help you stay fresh and energized. Think about your work strategy. Anything that encourages and motivates you throughout the day would be considered strategic in helping you be successful.

Show how you are intentional! Even if your current role is not as advanced as the one you're interviewing for, you can still show off how you keep yourself and others motivated!

Rachelle's Answer
"Well I go to work, sit at my desk and complete my responsibilities..."
Anonymous Answer
"One a daily basis, I work with our pre-production team, which is slowly developing into our technical design team. I start my day by answering any emails and creating a little to-do list for the day. We do a big test fits three times a week, so depending on whether our team is test fitting or working on other priorities like spec-ing samples or working on digital flat drawings, etc. I'll prepare for those or jump right into my work. For us right now, depending on the season, I might have to do frequent visits for contractors, so that is also something I would prep for if need be."
Rachelle's Answer
This is a nice overview of your week! Do you have any leadership responsibilities that you could include?
Was this answer helpful? Yes or No
5.
What do you know about our company?
If you haven't looked at the company website by now, go ahead and do it! Investigate the careers section and read about the history and any press releases that show the latest news about Under Armour. Make a list! You might mention you were impressed with their global philanthropy and the organizations they have founded to support women and military. You could also talk about their values and how important it is for you to work for such an inspiring and innovative company. It's okay to stroke their ego. In fact, we highly encourage it! Company history, employee reviews, and their mission are all some of the critical areas to touch on. Do your research!

Rachelle's Answer
"I know that Under Armour started with the intention of creating a shirt that wicked away sweat. From there, you have become a global brand for the most discerning athletes. Formed in 1996 by a formal NFL player himself, I fully believe that Under Armour has always had the heart of an athlete at the center of every decision, product, and innovation. I am thrilled to be interviewing here today."
6.
Do you have any of our products? What do you like about them?
If you're stumped, go to an Under Armour store or find a sporting goods store where their clothes are sold. Next, try on the clothes! Use their products and observe what is different about them, compared to their competitors. Pay attention to how the fabrics feel and how the sizes fit. The more you can describe your experience of using their products, the more knowledgeable you will be in the interview. Product knowledge will give the interviewer confidence that you are invested in the company and that you want the job enough to do your research.

Rachelle's Answer
"My most favorite product that I have is your HOVR shoe. It's the perfect athletic shoe for any runner, and I have never found a shoe more comfortable, or better built for optimum performance."
Anonymous Answer
"I have some sports bras and socks. I find them to be very comfortable and surprisingly durable in the wash. But my, Boyfriend swears by your heat gear. He uses it during his motorcycle riding, and it really does do wonders for him."
Rachelle's Answer
It's great that you have had exposure to some Under Armour products before your interview!
Was this answer helpful? Yes or No
7.
What is the toughest problem you've had to face? And how did you overcome it?
Under Armour is a brand that is all about perseverance! Overcoming adversity shows that you not only are a hard worker, but you also know how to persevere. This quality is highly desired by a company inspired by athletes. When you give your example, be sure it is work-related and find a way to keep it relevant to the job for which you are applying.

Rachelle's Answer
"Last year our company was sold to a competitor, and a lot of our management team changed hands. It was a lot of change to handle in a short time, especially being unsure of who to report to ahead of others. I am resilient, though, and have made the big changes work by keeping my head down and delivering great work, no matter who it goes to in the end."
8.
Why are you the best candidate for this position?
Let's take a look at the job description first. You will find a list of qualities and responsibilities that the interviewer expects you to be able to meet. Otherwise, they wouldn't have called you! Now think beyond the job description. Now is a time to show off how your skills and traits will make a difference on your new team. Consider answering this question by demonstrating how you have proven yourself in your past roles. Talk about how your communication skills helped you get along with a challenging team, or how you used your organizational skills to keep confidential information secure and accurate. Keep your strengths and examples relevant to what you may be expected to accomplish in this new role. Remember, you have so much to offer!

Rachelle's Answer
"I am the best candidate for you because I show levels of dedication and follow through that is uncommon in the workplace. As a manager, my team members are always very responsive to my upbeat and open approach. You will not be disappointed in my performance if you choose to hire me."
9.
What qualities do you look for in a manager?
Before you talk about your favorite manager, think about how you like to be managed and the qualities that make working with them a positive experience. You may not have had the best managers in the past, but you can learn what you're looking for by experiencing the opposite! Think about the traits of a good manager that help you shine!

Rachelle's Answer
"I look for someone who challenges me and is good at motivating the team. My last manager was really a role model for me, and he helped prepare me for a big promotion that I got! He coached me and empowered me to play up my strengths and improve my weaknesses."
Anonymous Answer
"I value an employer who communicates clearly with their team. In the past, I have had some employers who have been less than transparent in conveying their ideas and directions. Although I work very well independently, and I don't require excessive supervision, I do appreciate employers who speak clearly to employees. I also look for someone who is motivating and challenging but also approachable should I ever have questions or concerns."
Rachelle's Answer
You are very clear on the qualities you would like to see in your employer/manager, which will be very helpful to your interviewer when determining fit.
Was this answer helpful? Yes or No
10.
Are you okay with working overtime?
If an interviewer asks you about working overtime, it is safe to assume that is the expectation. However, we all have probably experienced that the outcome of assumptions is not always pretty! This situation is where asking additional clarifying questions is essential. Overtime can be rough, but at least you're getting compensated for it. Find out if it overtime is expected every week and then you can decide for yourself if it is something you would be willing to do. Ask questions first!

Rachelle's Answer
"I'm happy to work overtime. Do most people work over 40 hours every week or is this dependent on the season?"
Anonymous Answer
"I think there is nothing wrong with occasionally working overtime hours if it’s justified; however, I also need the time outside of work to invest in myself so that I’m more productive and effective in the workplace. Do most people work over 40 hours every week, or is this dependent on the season?"
Rachelle's Answer
You answer this perfectly! Also, your question at the end is an important one. Great work.
Was this answer helpful? Yes or No
11.
How do you respond to customer complaints?
Customers can always find something to complain about, whether it be a tiny snag in a sweater or that you didn't greet them correctly when you arrived at the store. As you know, there's no need to blame the customer. It's up to you to respond most politely and kindly possible. Their frustration could be from their recent breakup, or maybe they're just having a bad day. Your job is to tell them, "I'm so sorry that happened! What can I do to help?" A can-do attitude will take you far with customers, especially when you can solve their problems.

Rachelle's Answer
"I'm so sorry that happened! What can I do to help?"
12.
Tell me what you know about the history of Under Armour.
The Under Armour website will tell you everything you need to know. An athlete founded it for athletes. Be sure to talk about a few key points that stood out to you as you uncover more about the company. You may even want to share how you were impressed that they started by designing one workout shirt and grew into becoming a household name for sportswear. Write down what you learn and feel free to ask questions. Asking intelligent questions show you are interested and invested in learning more about the company!

Rachelle's Answer
"I have researched Under Armour quite a lot, but was already somewhat familiar with your company as I have purchased a variety of your garments over the years. I like that your company was founded by an athlete, keeping all athletes, of all abilities, in mind when looking at new and exciting products to bring to the market. It's amazing that you are now publicly traded and selling globally."
13.
How will you make our team stronger?
Let's talk about teamwork. Clearly Under Armour values individuals who work well with others, especially considering a former college football player founded them! You might surprise yourself, as some of the qualities that will help you get your work done will also help you work with your team. For example, when you are entering data, you need to be precise and check for accuracy. This skill can also be helpful in a team environment! It depends on the team.

If you are working in sales, your attention to detail will help others who are much more focused on the big picture. Communication skills are an absolute necessity. Listening skills will also take you far. Being flexible is also important. Make a list of your most significant strengths and then think about how you would apply each one in a group setting. You will make the team at Under Armour stronger by merely being on it!

Rachelle's Answer
"I will make your team stronger by bringing an immense amount of enthusiasm to what I do every day. I will offer a friendly face to your customers and be a reliable team member that encourages others. Not to mention, I am great with sales and upselling, Currently the top sales rep in my organization, I plan to bring that level of achievement to work with me at Under Armour."
14.
Tell me about your education.
Think of your top three accomplishments from your most recent education. You may have overcome a learning disability or learned to work successfully in groups with people who are different from you. Whether you graduated with honors or skid by and barely graduated, take some time to write down the accomplishments of which you are most proud. Be proud of your achievements, big and small. Talk about the ones that display your strengths and that you think the interviewer would find impressive.

Rachelle's Answer
"I tried on a few different majors when I was in college because of my diverse interests. I worked hard at everything from journalism to marketing and learned that I have great attention to detail and work well with others. My group project for my final in global marketing received high praise not just from my professor but my class. We were even asked to present to the marketing department faculty at the end of the semester!"
15.
Who most inspires you?
Since Under Armour often uses well-known athletes to model their apparel, consider talking about someone who embodies the qualities of these role models. You don't have to talk about a famous athlete, but you can share a person in your life, like your manager, a co-worker or a mentor who challenges you. As you ponder this inspiring person, think about their leadership qualities. Ask yourself how they inspire others. Maybe it is through their small actions of serving others. Perhaps they are an inspiring speaker who has overcome difficult challenges. Think of the person and then come up with a few qualities about them that motivate you to be a better person.

Rachelle's Answer
"I am very inspired by the story of Kurt Warner, the former NFL player with St. Louis Rams, the New York Giants, and the Arizona Cardinals. He was busy working at a grocery store before being discovered. Even after having a great football career he has gone on to inspire many young adults, encouraging them to see their dreams through."
Anonymous Answer
"It might sound a little cliche but my parents. They are very humble people who have put nothing but hard work and love into raising my brothers and me. I come from a place where most people grow up and stay in Bolivia their whole lives, so seeing them take the plunge to move us by themselves far from their entire family when they were about my age to feed their careers is something that I value immensely, and I only hope to be as successful as they have been."
Rachelle's Answer
Showing this respect and appreciation for your parents is very admirable; this is an answer that any interviewer should appreciate.
