    I have been working at NIKE part-time

    Pros

    By far the best retail job I've ever had. I've worked for companies like Abercrombie and Marshalls before, but Nike has been the best one by far.

    Nike really considers its employees. Once you're hired, current employers teach you a class for 3 days straight on product knowledge. It also includes fun actives so you know what you're doing before you get to the floor.

    I actually miss going to work the days that I'm off.

    - Great Discounts
    - Best Working Environment
    - If You Love Sports This Is The Place For You
    - Growth Opportunity
    - Great Managers
    - Flexible
    - Cool initiatives on new products, such as new cleats, shoes or apparel.
    - Clubs: such as Nike Running Club and Training Club that employees and consumers can be a part of.
    - Great compensation

    Cons

    The only downside to being an Athlete at Nike is competitiveness. It's hard to get the job, with thorough interview steps, such as phone interview and panel interview. However, its all worth it once you part of the swoosh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. There's nothing better than representing Nike everyday at work.

    I worked at NIKE part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great managers (coaches) and athletes (sales associates) -- very friendly, welcoming, and supportive. Employees are diverse and have personality. They are passionate about the brand and company. Lots of fun off hours activities. Athletes are provided phenomenal education about the brand/product. Strong running culture.

    Cons

    Non-athletes or non-runners may feel out of place. Constant flow of people coming in and going out (for better or worse).

    I worked at NIKE

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere
    Great Uniform
    Great Discount on nike products and Affiliated companies
    Great Wages..What more can you ask for in a Job

    Cons

    Sometimes you get scheduled for days you request off, even if you requested in the time you were alotted. I guess this means bad management. And there was really no solution for the influx of customers we would get, it would just be huge battlefield especially during the weekends which made working pretty stressful and there is a lot of international customers so the language barrier could sometimes be a problem too

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread the common/popular product around the floor so the associate that is working there doesnt feel overwhelmed since its usually in one area.
