    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at NIKE.

    Interview

    First a phone screen, followed by a group interview (typically hire many Athletes at a time), and then a follow up in which they may or may not offer you the position. They make the process very relaxing, but are also very thorough. Typically have a set list of questions that they ask from, and don't tend to stray from that bank. Also was asked some team based questions - a hint for those is to take lead but in a cohesive and positive team manner.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at NIKE.

    Interview

    Group interview with about 3-4 other people; fairly easy. If you know anything about the company other than "I like shoes," you'll be good to go. 80% of applicants will only know about Jordans and don't care about anything else. The interviewee is very monotone, just because they know how many people want to work for Nike so they want to read your energy levels/body language more than your response to their energy.
