Product Design Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at NIKE in October 2010.

Interview Details – Dealt with an HR screen first. This was simply a review of my resume, and a "why do you want to do this?" conversation. Next step was a phone interview with hiring manager. This was a thorough review of my qualifications, the job responsibilities, and my interest in the job. A few weeks later - I was brought in for an in-person panel interview. This was a very perfunctory, scripted interview, where the questions were asked from a piece of paper. Wasn't too original. I was given most of these questions before the interview, so was adequately prepared.

Interview Question – Describe a difficult engineering challenge that you struggled to solve?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Straight forward negotiation - was given a modest concession ($2k), and accepted.

Intern Interview

Beaverton, OR

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at NIKE in January 2013.

Interview Details – Process was long and drawn out. There were first one way video interviews where candidates filmed themselves answering questions. Then came a couple phone interviews. Next, they assigned a project for candidates to complete. It was taking a look at current business prompts from within Nike. Finally, there was another phone interview before the offer.

Interview Question – All questions were pretty standard. A variety of behavioral questions as well as some industry specific and function specific questions used to gauge your strengths or interests.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiated starting and ending date, and housing stipend.

Athlete Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NIKE.

Interview Details – I applied at Indeed.com, and got a phone interview call that asked basic questions such as, "What's your favorite shoe?, Why do you want to work for Nike?, What's your asking pay?. I was called a week later for an in-person interview which was a group interview of about 6 people including myself. The 2 managers interviewing us asked everyone work related questions. You were not asked directly, and everyone had to rise their hands before being called. The interview process was surprisingly fun and everyone was in a good mood.

PCA Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Taichung (Taiwan)

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at NIKE in February 2014.

Interview Details – 1st round - HK HR, just a basic and quick interview. the questions are based on cv/resume. at the end of the interview i was asked to answer the question "what kind of exercise do you normally do?" in english.

2nd round - Taichung Office, the interviewers are fluent in english and the whole process were in english. They asked me about 12 or so scripted questions. it was kind of hard for me cuz the questions were really experience-oriented but I was just a masters graduate. guess they would prefer an experienced candidate. the whole process was exhausting cuz hey kept asking the scripted and follow-up questions.

Interview Question – all questions are stated as scenarios but they would expect you to answer by real experiences of yours.   Answer Question
