    Retail Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at NIKE.

    Interview Details

    Interview Process was in groups because of the high volume of applicants. It could be a little nerve wrecking when you have to talk about yourself in front of a big group. The interview takes around an hour or so but is a good experience to go through this type of interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The question was have you ever had to make a tough decision like firing someone and how did you go about it? Definitely the most difficult question.   Answer Question

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NIKE.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted a couple days later by a recruiter. Did a phone interview with the recruiter followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager a couple days later. Two weeks later I went onsite and did a panel interview with the hiring manager and two other members of the team. The panel interview was difficult but not overwhelming. Each panel member had a couple of prepared questions and they went around the table asking their scripted questions. The questions were about my background, examples of past experiences and hypothetical situations. The panel session lasted about one hour. All of the team members were extremely personable. Overall it was a very enjoyable interview process.

    It was after the interview that things got strange...

    A few hours after the interview I received confirmation from recruiter that they wanted to make me an offer. I was asked what I was looking for in terms of salary and I told them what I made currently. It was the same number as I told the recruiter in the initial interview so it shouldn't have come as a surprise. Recruiter sent me a benefits package and said would get back to me.

    Couple days and then weeks went by and I did not hear anything about the status. Finally I was able to chase down recruiter to find out what happened and then was told position was pulled. Very little detail was provided. It was all very odd since I had already been told they wanted to make an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult questions were the "tell me about a time" questions. I don't remember any specifics but I remember they really wanted to know how you handled yourself in certain types of situations historically.   Answer Question

    Talked to manager in store and was told to apply online. Applied online and followed up with manager in store and on phone. Was asked to come in for an interview and did.

    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beaverton, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beaverton, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at NIKE.

    Interview Details

    The interview process seemed very disorganized and unprofessional. I worked with the recruiter, who at times didn't know answers to my questions, to set up my on-campus interview. I had 3 panel interviews. The first was with the technical team I would be supporting. When I arrived, they didn't even know what role I was interviewing for and let me know it as they talked it out between the two. I got the sense that I was wasting their time as they kept trying to get out of the room. Initially that could be a bad signal if the interviewer is uninterested, but I got an offer...not the best way to sell a company.

    The second interview was 10 minutes. Not joking, he came in, we talked a bit and said "I'm sold" and walked me to my next interview. Didn't even have the time to ask him questions given the interview would require me moving and I like to get people's perspective about the area and the company.

    The third interview was with three finance people on the team. I was very unimpressed. They seemed more nervous than I did and asked the most cookie cutter questions possible. "Tell me a time when you dealt with conflict..." If these were the people I would be working with, I was not too eager.

    Ultimately the manager reached out to me to move forward, but I felt given the role, business partners, and team members, this was not the time to move. I like what Nike had to offer as a company, but not at this time.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at NIKE.

    Interview Details

    Most people are worried about what to wear for the interview. I wore jeans a black shirt cardigan and my favorite sneakers which were airman 97's. I had a group interview and they asked us questions such as why nike?, explain a time when you gave great customer service, and if you play any sports or anything. But don't worry you don't have to play any sports. Bill Bowerman specifically states anybody is an athlete. Most importantly don't brag about being a sneaker head and knowing about all the jordans that come out. doesn't look good.
