    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.

    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

    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
