    Part Time Athlete Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 days - interviewed at NIKE in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was called for an interview and showed up the next morning, but was NOT told it was a group interview. Which was upsetting to me. I prefer one on one.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because nike only offered me 10-15 hours a week. That is absolutely too low. My current part time employer gives me 30 hours a week. And I couldn't work both so I had to decline due to the low offer.

    Was called back shortly after applying. Then had an interview and management was beyond nice. The questions were simple given a situation or from past history of a situation. After the questions you are asked for your availability again and you're ready to go.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beaverton, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at NIKE.

    Interview Details

    Straightforward in the sense that they ask SMART interview questions, but if you give an ambiguous response they'll push you once to get more specific and then move on -- but ding you for not having an answer. This shouldn't be an issue as if you're going to add value, you should be able to speak to your past and future potential contributions.

    Interview Questions
    • N/A; as stated, study SMART questions and make sure you can speak to your specific abilities.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation from initial offer, but since I was leveraging another offer their initial was higher than I had expected.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NIKE in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went to a job fair and talked to the district manager. Explained what I was interested in full time and was told to leave my phone/email address. I was also told to go online and apply. Did so and was called back by a 3rd party (think overseas phone center) to do a phone interview. I was told that I needed to change my work availability to Days-afternoons-weekends if I wanted to be considered. I did so and was called right back. Phone interview went well and then was called in for a face/face. That was nerve wracking. Panel of 3 managers throwing out questions and lots of people in the room. CATTLE CALL!!!
    The questions were- Describe your favorite Nike Product in detail (KNOW YOUR PRODUCTS!) What is great customer service- Describe a time when you were given great service or poor service.
    I was told that I would hear back within a week. I haven't and I'm fine with that because come to find out, they only have part time positions available. After all that!!!!!!!!! :/
