Nike was not a job that I could depend on to take care of my family
Kelly Temp (Former Employee), Memphis, Tn – March 7, 2014
Pros: discount on shoes and clothes from factory
Cons: long shifts, short breaks
I would go to work every morning not knowing if i would get a full days work in or not. Sometimes I would get calls the night before telling me not to report to work due low volume and this would continue for days. Some weeks I might not work at all.
I love the atmosphere, I love my coworkers, I love being there.
Athlete Part Time (Current Employee), Hanover, MD – March 7, 2014
Pros: besides your 15 minute break you get an hour for your lunch break
Cons: i don't receive benefits since i was hired on as a part-time under 21 hours
A typical work day at Nike is me helping consumers in every way finding the perfect shoe, apparel or equipment to fit their personal needs. Some days i am working in footwear, men's apparel/fitting room, women's/kids apparel, cash register or even just standing in the front greeting consumers. Some days at work are slow dry and empty of consumers and – more... other days its fast busy and crowded. I learn different things every day whether its from Nike facts, opinions, and ideas from my co-workers, management, and or even from the consumers. My coworkers are all unique in their own way some have alot of knowledge about Nike shoes, equipment and or apparel. My management are very helpful friendly and all around cool people to work with. The hardest part of my job i would say is trying to get more hours and the most enjoyable part is working with consumers and putting that smile on their face and having them come back or even remember you from the great service you gave them. Last is i enjoy working with my coworkers and managers. – less
Security Center Control Person) (Current Employee), Memphis, tn – March 4, 2014
Pros: met nice people
Cons: short breaks, bad benifits, management
The typical day at Nike would be for me to come in, check all emails and cameras, & get my reports started. I learned how to write reports, record & monitor high tech security equipment. Also I learned patience. As far as management goes, the supervisors who I worked with were respectful yet did there job. But the manager that was above the supervisors – more... had no people skills at all. She is rude, disrespectful & does not know how to talk to people. There is no hard part about the job, due to the fact that I work the graveyard shift. The most enjoyable part about the job was everything else. – less
fun job with plenty of sales education opportunity
Shipping and Receiving Associate/ Retail Sales (Current Employee), Commerce, GA – February 27, 2014
Cons: low pay
Nike is a fun job with plenty of opportunities to find a position that fits you. Pay is not great but there are other benefits such as employee uniforms every six months and new tops every three months.
Part-Time Athlete (Former Employee), Terrell, TX – February 27, 2014
My job here was cool at first I started off as a part timer and then worked my way up to be a key holder. I was a key holder as a senior in high school and I thought that was pretty cool. I learned a ton about electronics with more of a hands on aspect rather than training. My management team was not the best, they didn't care about the appearance of – more... their employees or the store. Appearance is one of the biggest things that I look at in a business. there was absolutely no organization and the only reason I kept the jib for 2 years is because it was conveniently located about 5 minutes from my house. The hardest part of my job was leaving work with the store clean and then coming in the next day with it messy, that drove me crazy. The most enjoyable part was getting to go on house calls and helping other people out with their electronic issues. – less
Sales Associate (part-time) (Former Employee), Folsom, CA – February 26, 2014
Pros: hour lunches, employee discounts
Cons: management (depends), very little hours and pay depending on position.
A typical day at Nike is pretty fun depending on what type of day it is. If it's busy, then it's fun because you get to interact with customers as well as your fellow athlete's. If the day is less busy, then it may seem very boring, but there is always something to do to make them time go by fast. The employees were great people. Some were sneakerheads – more... and some some weren't, but they love them some Nike shoes (and Jordans). Management is great depending who is manager. Sometimes they get at you about certain things but it's really not all that serious. Nike is a great job with many great opportunities. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Tulalip, WA – February 18, 2014
A typical day would include working the cash register during busy hours while also being on the sales floor and assisting customers with anything that they need, whether it be product info, getting an item for a customer, or opinions.
Athlete (Current Employee), North Charleston, SC – February 14, 2014
A day at Nike consist of hard work and dedication. The customer and the brand is alway our main focus. Striving for excellence is the key to making the job successful. The management team is a wonderful group of people. They are willing to always reach out and help any athlete in any area they need the most. The hardest part of my job is really try – more... to satisfy the customer as much as possible. A lot of the times a consumer may come in looking for something they might have viewed online but because we are an outlet store we don't always get the newest footwear and apparel. The most enjoyable part of the job is really meeting new people each and every day from all different parts of the world, cultures, and backgrounds. – less
