bob in Portland, Oregon said: Well I did the interview and it was really lame. They didn't act interested in me, even from the get-go. I dressed in khakhis and a blue buttondown. I was probably a little underdresed, but I was still dressed nicer than them. For the amount they pay employees they should be much nicer. I think they were pretty arrogant. It was a corporate job. I am offered a job for twice what they are offering me. They are getting away with it, though. Good for them. They probably have 1000 people wanting this job.
I think you have a fairly typical experience - at least with Nike WHQ. They have well over 1,000 applications for each job posting so I guess they feel they can afford to be arrogant. And as you say - they get away with it.
This is just another way of them weeding out people they don't want on their 'team.' It is a very cut-throat environment and if that's not for you, then move on and don't take this experience too personally.
I'm sure your khakis and blue button-down were just fine. They already have an idea of who/what they're looking for.
Nike is a good company if you can get in with the right manager. Most people interview several times for several positions before getting hired. Another thing to consider: I was told that about 43% of all regular full-time Nike employees started as a contractor. If you haven't given up hope yet, try that route.
