Product Design Engineer Interview

Product Design Engineer
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.

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

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.

Seasonal Athlete Interview

Seasonal Athlete
Marysville, WA

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at NIKE in August 2010.

Interview Details – Turned in my online application (they don't use paper apps), instead of waiting around fingers crossed for a interview I called them a few times and came in to "check on my application". They scheduled me a 15 minute interview at the store I wanted to work at. I dressed business casual but some of my associates say they wore Nike clothing. I would suggest business wear however, shows you are serious. The questions were easy enough.
What was a time you were faced with a challenge at work and how did you deal with it?
What leadership positions have you held?
How would you handle an upset customer?

Interview Question – None of them were particularly difficult. They just want to see your outgoing personality.   Answer Question

Seasonal Athlete Interview

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at NIKE.

Interview Details – Applied online when the application was available. Got a call back a few weeks later to do a phone interview and the group interview was scheduled at the same time. Some got called back right after they applied, just depends on how soon you apply from when they'll be doing interviews. Group interview wasn't difficult. Typical questions of "explain a time." Groups vary from 2-10 people.
