Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – February 10, 2016
A typical day at Nike was always interesting and never a day the same as the day before. You learn a lot about the Nike brand and technology used in making and designing the shoes and apparel. A very interesting workplace with a lot to learn in. The management at times wasn't the best but that's to be expected from time to time. Everyone I worked with were decent people with their own set of goals and reasons for working there. I enjoyed most of the co-workers but as in most places you have those that would rather goof off or just simply not work. That made some days much longer then others as well as a bit stressful for those who did work. The hardest part of any job is connecting with the co-workers so that the effort is a team effort. In retail there are some who enjoy their work and some who don't which leads to a dysfunctional team and most times this is the case in retail. I so enjoyed learning the different shoes, apparel, and equipment. I enjoyed the team of co-workers I had the pleasure of working with and most of the management team. It is overall a good place to work especially if your athletically inclined.
You learn a lot about shoes and apparel
The hours can conflict with your day to day living.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Tulalip, WA – February 9, 2016
A typical day at Nike is always fast paced. You constantly learn about the new products and managers are there to help. Most managers are great, however they have so many employees that most of them don't know the names of people working. They also hire most sales associates instead of giving current employees more hours. The teamwork environment is awesome, everyone is very helpful. Co-workers are great and make the environment exciting and joyful
Plastic Component Operator (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – February 8, 2016
Monday through Thursday I worked 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. a 12 hour shift I learned a vast number of things from nike, I've worked my way around the department because I didn't want to just do one thing for 12 hours. I wanted gain knowledge to help out different parts of the departments if I was needed.

looked forward to going to work. loved the discounts , just like every employee. The hardest part of the job was just trying to guess what the foreign customers needed help getting a certain type of shoe, but couldn't talk to you because they had another language.
It was fun meeting new people every day and seeing new stock before others did.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, NY – February 4, 2016
The management team was not helpful in training employees fully. I would have liked more opportunity to be of service but was not given enough hours. After the holidays they only used me for a fill in to cover shifts when others wanted days off. Some of the managers were nice and helpful.
Great discounts for myself and family, good clothing allowance but it was taken out of our pay
Poor training and difficult to understand some customers as they were foreigners
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Dry Ridge, KY – January 30, 2016
Excellent company with top-notch customer service and education. Nike demonstrates integrity and innovation with high-quality products for athletes and for the average customer. Many promotional opportunities.
Event Management (Current Employee) – Beaverton, OR – January 30, 2016
Growing company with opportunity for the most diverse work force imaginable. Common to work along side employees with 15+ years experience within the company. Compensation is weighted towards positions directly related to selling and developing the product as well as upper management.
Awesome Place to work, fun environment, and a lot of relocation opportunities. Not a lot of local opportunity. Committed to diversity as well as culturally accepting. Day includes customer care, cash care, housekeeping, accounting, payroll accountability, and hiring.
Part-time Athlete (Current Employee) – Aurora, IL – January 22, 2016
Great place to learn as a person. Customers always go first, but they always protect your right as an employee. I learned a lot about the products that Nike makes and what they do with the shoes that are recycled. The hardest part is dealing with rough customers.
