I applied online and interviewed at NIKE.

Interview Details – I applied online and was surprised to even get a response from them. I passed my first interview, which was over the phone. They told me what to expect and how to prepare. I highly appreciated the help and that says a lot about Nike. Some of the things I expected (from what I was told) were things like "What's your favorite Nike product?" Why do you want to work for Nike?" and so on. I felt optimistic about the group interview and stood up 'till 4 am working on my interview questions. When I arrived to the interview, I instantly felt intimidated by the people there for the interview as well. I got a feeling that it wasn't going to go well, and it didn't. It was me, 3 women, and a male. The interviewer was extremely nice but the questions were not the ones I was told about over the phone.
 The questions asked were "Explain to me one time you've dealt with good or bad customer experience" and "What was one time you've dealt with a situation and how did you handle it" and 2 of those women handled those questions well. That's not a bad thing, except that they already had years of experience. By that I mean that one of women already had experience because she was a coach to a soccer team and finished college. The other one had traveled to a foreign country while she was in a soccer team. Already these women had the upper hand and I knew there was no way I was getting the job, regardless if they even contacted by strong references. The interviewer didn't ask questions like "What's are your strengths and weaknesses" or "What does Nike help when it comes to women living in undeveloped countries." Those questions would've been better to judge character and see they'd researched Nike programs like The Girl Effect. During the panel another women was speaking (not the 2 I mentioned) and the women who had experience as a coach looked so annoyed and didn't even bother to listen because she kept looking up at te ceiling. My answers were not as vague as the male's, but it was game over. All the questions were just based on experience. Nothing more or nothing less. Not even "Why should Nike hire you?" Just personal experience. Dissappoiting really. It's like standardized questions because not everyone has the same level of experience. And experience doesn't mean you'll genuinely take your job seriously.
