    Learned a lot!

    PT Athlete (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIt was a great a place to work, I learned a lot about sneakers and work out gears. It was fun when it was not overly crowded. Management would work with your schedule which is great if you are in school or have another job.

    ConsCustomers would be very impatient especially when each athlete had to juggle between 5-8 customers per person. Hours were crappy at times and the ability to move up in the company is a nightmare.

    Converse segment not operated with the same level of excellence as Nike

    Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsNike Inc is a great company to work for sports apparel retail & fashion, but Converse doesn't get as many resources.

    ConsRoom for growth for employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare positive and constructive feedback to employees

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best Coworkers I've ever Had, =Nike Family

    Stock Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsNike has been one of the best retail jobs I've ever had. I've been fortunate to have been employed here for the last 4 years working in 2 types of stores; flagship and brand experience. Nike offers competitive pay, tuition reimbursement for Full time employees pursuing a degree related to Nike Business ex: Business, Marketing, Design etc. Excellent coworkers, Excellent discount, Uniform provided up to 3x a year.

    ConsThere is a bit too much of trial and error, sometimes the management lacks consistency. If you're not overly enthusiastic its sometimes viewed as negative. They expect a lot of the employees to mirror in personality even if its not an employee's temperament. For example someone who is viewed as having a "better" personality will get a promotion over someone who works hard. In addition hours are sometimes scarce if you're not part time over, or full time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think the application process needs to be modified, especially for internal candidates. There are some individuals who are modest when selling themselves, however their worth ethic demonstrates something more substantial than anything they could put into words about themselves.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great job but bad corporate politics

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Elizabeth, NJ

    ProsNice discount at 30% as a sales associate.

    Flexible hours

    Nice managers who give alot of chances for tardiness

    Easy work

    Tax-deducted or almost free clothing and shoes every quarter

    Alot of young adults

    Motivational attitude.

    ConsAthletes get most of the grunt work

    During high volume and traffic managers lock down in the office and basically do nothing

    During low volume and traffic managers lock down in the office and basically do nothing

    Managers who don't know how to efficiently operate and require assistance from other athletes to do their job (btw, those athletes still have their own relative tasks to perform as well.)

    Not alot of incentive to move up in the company

    No commission or recognition for hard work

    No incentive besides an extra $5 on a bonus check to work for loss prevention in finding missing items

    Sketchy corporate history with continuing human rights violations that the company persists in denying

    Preferential treatment in giving hours away to some athletes

    Hour scheduling is rigged. Some managers take away from the salary pool by cutting hours for other managers and athletes and take that money for themselves.

    Hour scheduling can be notoriously off forcing associates to document every time they punch in or punch out. Disparity in paycheck amount can be up to as much as 75% of the time worked for that 2 week paycheck window.

    In reference to the last statement above, the scheduling manager has nothing else to do besides just this. Very disappointing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis company is basically a popularity contest. You cant move up if you have a good idea or a way to change things to even make the company more money. Unless its cutthroat and abusive like most corporate policies, there really is nothing you can change.

    I was pleased with my time with the company

    Shipping and Receiving Lead (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGood place to work. Management was good to work with. Leads were treated as if they were managers. Good discount.

    ConsThe promotion process. An associate should not have to interview if there is a position for promotion. If there managers feel as if they are qualified, they should receive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work
