    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

    Pros

    Starting 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

    Cons

    Working 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 Management

    This 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.

  7. Overall really easy working environment

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Poor work ethic amongst colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in helping associates grow as professionals (even if this is a retail position). People work harder when they're working towards something.

  8. Great experience working for the world largest provider in sporting goods.

    Pros

    Pay 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

    Cons

    Management 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 Management

    Please 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
