Retail Sales Associate Interview

Retail Sales Associate
Louisville, KY

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NIKE in June 2014.

Interview Details – Went to a job fair and talked to the district manager. Explained what I was interested in full time and was told to leave my phone/email address. I was also told to go online and apply. Did so and was called back by a 3rd party (think overseas phone center) to do a phone interview. I was told that I needed to change my work availability to Days-afternoons-weekends if I wanted to be considered. I did so and was called right back. Phone interview went well and then was called in for a face/face. That was nerve wracking. Panel of 3 managers throwing out questions and lots of people in the room. CATTLE CALL!!!
The questions were- Describe your favorite Nike Product in detail (KNOW YOUR PRODUCTS!) What is great customer service- Describe a time when you were given great service or poor service.
I was told that I would hear back within a week. I haven't and I'm fine with that because come to find out, they only have part time positions available. After all that!!!!!!!!! :/

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at NIKE.

Interview Details – HR interview by telephone, then assignment of a business case to be solved within few days. The business case was on excel and was fairly easy to solve; it just needed some organization. I was successfull at these first 2 steps and I was invited to attend a final Skype interview which unfortunately I was forced to cancel.

Seasonal Nike Athlete Interview

Seasonal Nike Athlete

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at NIKE in May 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online and it took 4 weeks for them to give a call back. Group interview. No one dresses up nicely so I highly recommend you don't do it. Asked about 7 questions. Very misleading group of employees and never seen so much rudeness at a nike store ever. Sidenote-Said they would evaluate all candidates once they finished interviewing this week and let us know middle of next week with the results but lied and rejected the next day.

Interview Question – Not really difficult or unexpected: What are you passionate about and why nike?   View Answer

Communications Designer Interview

Communications Designer
Beaverton, OR

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at NIKE in April 2014.

Interview Details – I was approached by a recruiter and got an interview within a week. A team of two interviewed me, the process took 30 minutes. I was asked for some work samples and showed my online portfolio, hosted locally (WiFi was not available, so bring hard copies or a locally hosted site.)

Both team members were very pleasant and I left feeling very good about my performance and the interview overall. I was told they would inform me of their decision within one day.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at NIKE in February 2014.

Interview Question – Nothing was too unexpected, mostly behavioral questions.   Answer Question

Graphic Designer Interview

Graphic Designer

I applied through college or university and interviewed at NIKE.

Interview Details – Two people interviewed me as I guided them through my portfolio. It was a very easy-going interview, mostly explaining my work and they would occasionally ask me typical interview questions, or questions about my design choices on a specific project.

Interview Question – Why do want to work for them and what can you bring to the table? This gets asked at any interview, but with Nike it's very important that you can describe exactly how THEY would benefit from hiring you, as they are always looking to innovate.   Answer Question

Interviewed at NIKE

Interview Details – After submitting a video, I got a second phone interview since my campus was closed due to inclement weather. Questions were not hard, mostly behavioral. I, however, was a nervous wreck. You also have to be pretty obsessed with the company. I also did not expect to hear the same questions as the ones in the video submission. That really tripped me up.
