    Pros

    Very easy summer sales associate retail job. Management was super pleasant and always respectful which made for a nice team environment. 30% discount. Two 15 minute breaks, one hour lunch.

    Cons

    Hours seemed to crawl. Couldn't get more than 30 hours a week. High turnover. Uniform is considered taxable income.

    Advice to Management

    Seasonal employment shouldn't mean low hiring standards. It was evident management relied on several strong employees to really make things go and it is hard for team morale seeing seasonal coworkers removed in handcuffs for stealing. Clearly, this action is justified, but I can't help but think a better hiring process might prevent the liability in the first place.


  3. Met a lot of great people, fun atmosphere to work in, but it did get a little school like towards the end for me.

    Pros

    Free clothes and shoes, and there was always an event happening.

    Cons

    Not much of a work life balance, raises were crap, shady competivness.

    Advice to Management

    It's best to promote from within. There are a lot who are qualified, quit passing over talent.

    Pros

    People most definitely. there were always a different demographic coming in the store looking to buy product. so in short every day was a breath of fresh air.

    Cons

    once the facade fades you realize that you are only just a nike lackey nothing but an employee. I guess thats ultimately a job is but i expected some different with the brand
