    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at NIKE.

    Interview Details

    Two people interviewed me as I guided them through my portfolio. It was a very easy-going interview, mostly explaining my work and they would occasionally ask me typical interview questions, or questions about my design choices on a specific project.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do want to work for them and what can you bring to the table? This gets asked at any interview, but with Nike it's very important that you can describe exactly how THEY would benefit from hiring you, as they are always looking to innovate.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    After submitting a video, I got a second phone interview since my campus was closed due to inclement weather. Questions were not hard, mostly behavioral. I, however, was a nervous wreck. You also have to be pretty obsessed with the company. I also did not expect to hear the same questions as the ones in the video submission. That really tripped me up.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NIKE in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    After applying online I heard back from HR about 1-2 weeks later. The first step was a phone interview which was behavioral and personality questions. The person was very nice and told me I was a great candidate for the group interview. The group interview was a but unorganized , there was not a specific order so candidates chimed in when they had an answer. The interview was about 5 questions the interviewing managers were enthusiastic which made the process easier. 2 days later I was sent the HireRight background check. 5 days after I submitted it I was called with an offer

    Athlete Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at NIKE in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    1st: Phone Interview of about 20 minutes. Basic questions such as: What is customer service to you? Why Nike?

    2nd: Panel Group Interview of about 5 other candidates with 3 hiring managers. Pretty intimidating since I felt like I was on an audition for American Idol. Anyway, basic questions. Tell me about a time when you met a stranger. Tell me about a time when you partnered up with someone and were told to do something you didn't want to. Tell me about a time you worked in a group to reach a common goal. Why Nike?

    3rd: If you were chosen for employment you will receive an email from HireRight 2-3 days after the interview for a background check. Once you submit that (and your clean) in about 3-5 days you will receive a call with an oficial job offer.

    Overall, pretty intimidating for me since I applied to the flagship store in NYC. The interview can be a little scary. However, focus on your own game. Don't oversell yourself. Many of the other candidates were asked simple questions and they went on to say how much they love Nike and bla bla bla. Answer the question and be specific. Also ask questions at the end and finish the last question with a great closing.

    Interview Questions
    • All behavioral questions. Be prepared to answer questions based off situations and things you've done.   Answer Question

    Recruiters conduct the initial screening process by phone.
    Hiring manager facilitates a panel interview with 3 to 5 panel members.
    Questions are competency based...tell me a time when you encountered (enter specific situation), how did you manage it and why did you choose that course of action.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work at Nike? It's not a surprising question but rather the answer must indicate a passion for the brand. Nike employees are very passionate about the Swoosh.   Answer Question
