I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at NIKE in March 2008.

Interview Details – Nike uses situational based interviewing. It was a panel interview with 8 people all asking questions. Be prepared with many examples to give from your previous work experience on how you overcame challenges, dealt with obstacles, showed leadership, etc. Definitely an intense interview experience with that many people in the room.

Brand Merchant Interview

Brand Merchant
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at NIKE in July 2010.

Interview Details – I'm still in the process of interviewing with Nike, but my experience so far has been positive. HR was very friendly, and always got back to me on every step of the process. After the interviews with potential manager & colleagues, I would write a "thank you" e-mail, and would even get a response back from them (which is usually not the case, from my experience). I should be hearing back soon on whether I will get an offer or not, and after my little experience with the company so far-- I'm definitely hoping I do!

Interview Question – Please define what "Merchandising" means in a single sentence.   Answer Question
