Question 4 of 25
Who most inspires you?
Professional Answers Preview
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 humble 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.

Professionally one of the toughest problems I have had to deal with is the idea to seek other employment opportunities. Although I have been given tremendous opportunities and truly learned a lot, there are professional needs I was not receiving. This is a step out of a comfort zone; however, it is necessary. I have overcome this with a great deal of thought, self awareness, and honesty.

User-Submitted Answers
1.
I do! One of my recent favorites is the vacuum sealed thermos.
2.
I have several Under Armour products. In fact, last year I went to the Summer League Sample Sale on both days to purchase gifts for relatives in the Philippines and several items for myself such as shirts, tanks, shoes, a backpack, and a handbag. I like not only the look of Under Armour apparel but how they wear well. I use Under Armour shirts during my workouts and they always keep me cool.
3.
I have multiple clothing from under amour and 2 pairs of curry ones and 2 pairs of curry twos since I love basketball.
4.
I have a heat gear shirt. It drapes well, keeps me cool and provides great freedom of movement.
5.
I have numerous UA products. I have a lot of ColdGear apparel that is perfect for layering when I am skiiing in below freezing temperatures. I also own UA sweatshirts and sweatpants for their comfort but edgy and dramatic designs.
6.
Yes, I do. I own many. It's all about comfort with me and I have found, consistently, that all of Under Armour's gear is so accomodating to the human body. DriFit is the absolute best on hot days when I'm out on the pool deck coaching. And as a person with very flat feet, I have finally found comfort in your shoes without ever getting a blister or having ankle pains due to lack of arch support.
7.
Of course! I have too many Under Armour hoodies to count and have been starting to collect a good amount of underarmour leggings as I fell in love with the leggings that have the holes in them for air circulation in the warm weather. I'm also actually planning on buying a new pair of Under Armour running shoes with my next paycheck as their shoes are the most comfortable for me. Not only are the products cute, they're functional and comfortable - which are musts for working out.

Question 16 of 25
Would you consider yourself an athlete? Do you play any sports?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
No. First, I would be extremely bored. I am looking for a challenge, I do not believe in things being handed to you, I believe in hard work and perserverence.
2.
I would not retire right away but rather continue to work and gradually retire by working part time before fully retiring. Then I would have more financial security going into retirement.
3.

4.
No. I am very driven. I have goals. I have a passion for what I do and wouldn't trade that for much.
5.
No, I love learning, creating, and expanding. If I retired now I think that wouldn't give me a chance be an innovative person that I am.
6.
No, I just entered the workforce with 22 years of education under my belt. I want to be able to use what I've learned and also see what I can accomplish.
7.
Money can buy a lot of things, but it can't buy you experience. So no, I wouldn't retire due to the fact that I still have so much to learn professionally and personally.
8.
I might consider it but, at the same time, I don't think I would be happy without working a little bit. Instead of retiring, I might take personal time to maybe start my own business/get some blogging experience.

It began after Kevin Plank while at the University of Maryland created a new t-shirt that kept athletes cool, dry, and light.

Under Armour is headquartered in the South Baltimore area at Tide Point and is expanding into Port Covington.
2.
That you have great products and are growing more and more each year to become top brand in the industry.
3.
Founded by KEvin plank while playing football in college.
4.
Kevin Plank founded Under Armour in 1995. UA has created the performance apparel category and revolutionized the way elite athletes perform.
5.
Founded in 1996 by Kevin Plank who was part of the University of Maryland Football team after developing a moisture-wicking fabric t-shirt. Since then it has grown into a huge company known all over the world while continuing to stay humble and hungry in Baltimore, MD. With athletes such as Tom Brady, Cam Newton, and Steph Curry using and promoting Under Armour products allows the brand to be known and attract more customers to Under Armour instead of a competing brand.
6.
The work that Kevin Plank has done to develop this brand into the empire that it is today, is absolutely incredible. "There's got to be something better." It all started with a sweaty tshirt and now he owns the number 1 sporting company in the world. The philanthropic work he continues to do worldwide and the opportunities he's opened the door for all young people, is very admirable. It is a brand ran by people who don't give up and don't give in.

User-Submitted Answers
1.
Under Armour is currently a leader in performance apparel. Just from my personal use, I find that Under Armour is durable, stylish, true to size, and functional; however, it can be expensive.
2.
To continue expanding to a variety of sports and activities to increase brand visibility.
3.
Having the best marketing like you do, and being closer to customers.
4.
I believe that your brand is top notch that stands out because it doesn't try to conform to any other brand out there. However the price point can be a little high and I believe if lowered slightly it could help push the brand forward.
5.
I think trying to branch out to different sports that aren't as mainstream would be beneficial.
6.
Customization of products such as shoes where the customer can go online and choose the colors and design of their choice to own a one of a kind item.
7.
I know that brands are always looking to improve, to develop the next best thing, that next big thing. And that's what makes sporting apparel and sporting goods so competitive. Everyone is always looking for that edge in whatever it is that they're doing.
Question 23 of 25
When have you had to deal with an irate customer? How did you handle it?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
First, I try to take a deep breathe and understand why the customer is upset. At that point I express and understanding so that they do not necessarily think I am not on their side. Next, I try to find a solution, something that is fair and makes the customer happy.
2.
Working in retail I have had to deal with customers who are unhappy with the product /unavailability. I analyzed the situation. Agreed with the customer, the customer is always right in retail. Reassure the customer that it is not their fault. Provided solutions to the customer in terms of discount options or exchanging the merchandise. Followed the customers wishes and completed the transaction. After the situation was handled I would discuss the encounter and provide feedback to the manager so that the issues with the product would be communicated up to the corporate level.
3.
No but if I had I would help them solve the issue on why they are not pleased.
4.
I once had a customer who wanted his debit card limit raised because he was on a cruise and wanted to be able to get cash for the casino. I told him I would need upper management to approve the increase before I did so. He became irritable and demanded he speak with a manager. I asked the customer if I can put him on hold so I can speak with a manager who is familiar with him. He agreed and I spoke with the manager about the situation. She spoke with the customer and gave her one time permission for the increase which pleased the customer. He thanked both of us and sounded better than he first did when he spoke with me.
5.
I politely asserted my self to solve the issue without disrespecting the person.
6.
A customer was not satisfied with the heating locations of our product. I sat them down and went over specs and asked for their input on suggested locations.
7.
I have had to deal with an angry candidate that was upset due to not getting the position. I explained to the candidate that we filled the position with someone who had more experience relating to the position and we would keep their resume on file in case another position that they were qualified for opened up.
8.
I personally have never had an irate customer because I do try my hardest to make sure all customers have the best shopping experience when I am working. However, while working somewhere else, I have seen a couple of customers get into an altercation over an item during a Black Friday sale. In an instance like that, the manager then called for security and the shoppers were escorted out.
