    Niketown NY is ok

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

    ProsStarting pay is good
    Pays for you to got to school if you are full-time and it fits into the list of curriculum they accept
    Each floor dedicated to different individuals
    New positions come up fairly often

    ConsWorking Shipping and Receiving since October 2013 if you are Part time under( less than 20 hours mostly) according to corporate can only schedule us 4 hours a week
    Abuse of power in terms of hiring and personal hook ups although you are asked to have people you know apply
    No grace period anymore
    Store can feel divided from S&R to sales floor as opposed to a whole team

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis is more for upper management overseeing the company: Find a more effective way to delegate the budget so that there are not employees literally struggling and calling in constantly because you can only give 4 hours a week.

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

    Overall really easy working environment

    ProsGreat employee discount and really easy to shine if you're a hard worker.

    The pay is good,everything else, not so much

    Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsPay is good,you receive bonus checks throughout the fiscal year, benefits such as paid time off, if you are part-time over or full time

    ConsManagement does not follow protocols they say everyone should adhere to, difficult to advance on running floor if you are not a runner which is very bias becasue people can becvome full-time after just starting while others after working for years such as myself are still under appreciating and left at a part-time under position, and a huge portion of that is beacuse im not a runner, hard to leave your floor and try to move to a new one, managers talk to you a s if they are well programmed drones when you ask them simplistic questions regarding policy or protocol. They hire additional seasonals and then claim its beacuse our availability is not oopen enough and tell us after they hire them, cutting hours for permanent employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease listen to sales associates,we are the grunts butu many times we do the most work and know what this business is really lacking and needs, thank you

    The real story

    No Longer Employed (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsIt's a great company to work for. I've always admired the way they have Marketed their products and they will continue to be a top notch complany as long as they keep the innovation of their products a priority. Far too often companies like this get stale in their approach and as a result they begin to lose market share.

    ConsThe hours were fairly long. Don't get me wrong. I love to work as much as the next person, however, at some point and time there has to be a balance between work and the home life. In my new capacity I have that freedom.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more objective

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
