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.

One of the most important things when entering a new environment is introducing yourself at the same remembering names with faces. Many times we believe that If you are able to understand policy and procedures, you have won half of the battle. However, if at anytime a policy or procedure becomes difficult to understand, if you are not aware of who your teammate are and their capabilities, how will you get over that hump? Over communicate to dominate initially and it allows you to build a better relationship with team members. This will allow the onboarding process to be almost seamless
Great company to work for. Nike has good benefits & a great starting pay scale. Overtime is always a plus if you are looking for a company that works a lot of extra hours. The only thing that I did not agree with at Nike was the weekend work schedule, which is a 12 hour shift that is continuous from Saturday thru Monday every weekend, but it might be ideal for other workers.

Very fun place to work. Only downside is if you are a temp, you need to touch bases with people to get in as a black badge. Can get in after being a temp but you really need to branch out and be noticed, over just excelling at you current temp position.

I´ve grow so much working at Nike has and is one of the most amazing experiences of my life i been able to build relationships with consumers & co-workers. We make sure our employees have a good work life balance which is very important just as we make sure our consumers receive excellent premium customer service. i think one of the hardest things for me has been challenging myself for different positions that i been able to perform and also communicating with others is okay to over communicate. i believe that communication is key everywhere you go. i enjoy so much being able to wear the most comfiest outfits to work and show our consumers our product.

Here I learned to work with different people on different levels of a warehouse environment. Though I was too young the benefits seemed very reasonable and they offered half off on Nike product in the warehouse. They keep us motivated each and everyday with extra activities for the employee's.
Nice cafeteria with great food. The discounts on the nike products

I loved the people I worked with - it make a world of a difference considering this was not at all the career path I was interested in pursuing. The managers were wonderful and considerate, as well as the coworkers. As it was a very structured company and environment, everything was "by the book".
