Senior Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Beaverton, OR

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at NIKE in May 2012.

Interview Details – Recruiter contacted me about a position and setup an initial phone screening with a department manager. This interview lasted about 30 minutes and was mainly general questions about my work experience. Once passed, they contacted me back for a face to face interview with 2 managers. Again, it was a very typical interview, with questions about my past, what I am looking for, and how I may handle a few difficult situations. Overall, I have interviewed with many different groups at Nike and have found they are more interested in how you will fit as a person than your super skills. Of course they want a competent person as well.

Interview Question – Our project process is broken. We are the testing team. We are falling behind, and we don't have enough resources to keep up and we cannot afford to bring on more resources. The development team keeps throwing more work at us and changes. What would you do to fix the situation.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They offered a rate initially through my contractor and I accepted based on the original rate. I did not negotiate as a contractor.

Digital Project Leader - NikeiD Interview

Anonymous Employee
Beaverton, OR

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NIKE in June 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online, about 2 weeks later I got scheduled for a phone screening interview. I was informed the next day that I was passed onto the next round. I let the recruiter know that I was currently out of state and requested for my in-person panel interview to be on one of two specific days that I would be in Portland. The recruiter and managers obliged and were very flexible.

The in person panel interview was great. It was a lengthy interview, close to an hour, but it included questions they posed to me and questions I had for them. It was very conversational and fulfilling. The hiring manager called me an hour afterward to offer me the position.

Interview Question – What would you do differently with the Nike brand?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The offer was made at the high end of the salary range. I had let the recruiter know early on and there was no negotiation needed. I made my expectations clear from the start and they met them.

Strategic Planning MBA Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Beaverton, OR

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at NIKE in January 2012.

Interview Details – Nike does a first round on campus interview with an HR recruiter. If you make it through that, you then proceed to the awkward second round video interview. You will get 10 questions and you get 3 mins to answer each, and you will be recorded. You are not speaking to someone on the other end, just to yourself. Nike is using a new technology by a company named Hireview, so that they can take all the recordings and disseminate the video feed to multiple hiring managers. The intent is to get more feedback and choose the best candidates without having hiring managers travel to interview candidates. It has been more than three weeks since my second round interview and I still have not heard back. Many of my classmates have also not heard back.
