Seasonal Athlete (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – February 4, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of greeting and interacting with consumers, and meeting their basic shopping needs. I picked up customer service skills and enhanced my social skills. Management was not very understanding, and did not work with employees availabilities. My coworkers were all very friendly and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was not receiving the hours that were promised upon hire. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting people from all around the world and getting to know a little bit about them.

I wish I could have stayed with the company longer, due to some unforseen life changes I was unable to do so. However great place to work, I enjoyed coming to work and there is lots of room for growth within the company
Learning the product and, room for advancement
Compensation and hours could've been better, only reason I had to leave
Family like environment that never felt like work!
Nike Athlete (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – March 31, 2016
Nike was easily my favorite job out of all the jobs that I had previously worked at. I got the job through my brother getting me and interview and then just meeting/exceeding everything they asked of me as an employee. Whether it was product knowledge, helping customers or helping out in the back when asked I did just about everything there and I enjoyed it all. The reason I left though was after about 8-9 months with the company we got new management and they also stopped letting part time employees work over 25 hours (which you could do if you picked up people's shifts which I did quite often) and I began to not enjoying coming to work anymore. A lot of the people that I built friendships with had left prior to myself and it just wasn't the same.
1 hour lunch, 40% off of everything, upbeat environment
Sales Associate/Shipping and Receiving (Current Employee) – San Ysidro, CA – February 18, 2016
Develop better inventory management and customer service skills, continue to develop on working in a team as well as individually. Management is always there to help and answer questions, very good open door policy is implemented. Co-workers are always helpful, fun and willing to work as a team and help each other out.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 24, 2016
I worked in retail as a customer service. I work in the basement where I would ascend the sneakers to different floors. I would transition sneakers that were not making a good profit. Also I would deflate the prices of a lot of product that were not selling fast enough. I would work on the seventh floor where I would send the different products to different department. We all work as a team and we respect each other. It was very hard to work for some one whenever they called out from work. The work would have been harder because you would have to work in their section after you have done yours. It was a pleasure working for this company.

SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – March 10, 2016
Great place to start off. Just like any retail job, not much growth. But it is up to you to take what you learned from that field and grow with it. I learned a lot about customer service, retail, and teamwork.
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – December 28, 2015
Grace period you are full time, getting a minimum of 32 hours, once your hired, you become part time and only able to get 20-25 hours. But only got 4-16 every 2 weeks. The store goes through managers like crazy. Only worked there a little over a year and had 14 managers. Communication with the managers, and staff are horrible due to the constant changes. They only gave me a 2 CENT RAISE after a year. I only stayed for the nike pass. The only people that ive seen promoted were people who had family members who worked at headquarters. I worked with very hard working sales associates whom many worked in the same position for 7-10 years!!!Unless you want to be a Ekin (nike spelled backwards & a cult where you get a nike tattoo and live, breathe and eat nike) then I wouldn't recommend this job. Dont try to work in a store just to work at headquarters. Unless have a family member working there that can pull strings, it wont work out. Your better off starting as a janitor at headquarters (which is paid more than retail at a store).
Employee Store pass ( great for sneaker heads & 50% off retail prices)
Very low pay and close to no working hours. Low chance of being promoted.
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.
Retail Associate (Former Employee) – Texas City, TX – March 16, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of lots of organizing clothes shoes and back-stock items depending on what day it was we would have to unload the truck stock floor or whatever the days missions was, we did it with efficiency. We always had a good time at work management was fun good sense of humor. Hardest part which wasn't actually hard was inventory. Most enjoyable part was just being there, got to meet some good people from corporate some famous athletes as well.
Experience in general and knowledge learned about products
Athlete (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 20, 2016
A typical day at Nike, if working the morning shift would consist of morning huddle. In our morning huddles we would talk about our sells from yesterday compared to the previous year and set a sales goal for the day, that should be last years goal. After huddle everyone goes to their floor and then doors are open to the consumers. At Nike I learned to be very interactive with the customers and try to learn things about them that will make the customer service go up. The management team was great to get along with, they were all so helpful and are very great leaders. I met some very nice co-workers and fact they were great too. The hardest part about this job was staying focus because there are many things going on at this place. The most enjoyable part about this job was being able to join clubs ran by Nike and be come a pacer coach for the public and actually get paid for it.

Nike HQ is a beautiful campus, operates as a collaborative and competitive environment, with a win and have fun attitude. Definitely a superiority complex in upper management, be prepared with documentation and analytics if you want to be taken seriously.
