    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NIKE (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was fun and interactive. Dress code was business casual, and management was laid back and fun. Didn't feel much pressure from them. Even if you didn't get the job at least it was a cool experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NIKE in May 2015.

    Interview

    Let me start off by saying to anyone looking to get hired by Nike, read the interview reviews and take heed! I did so, and it helped me to feel prepared and confident in the fact that I was the right candidate. I applied online on a Thursday and received a phone call from a recruiter on Monday morning. As far as the application process, given the high volume of responses Nike receives, I suggest you write a targeted cover letter pinpointing the qualifications of the position and highlighted how your skills can fulfill those purposes. As far as the phone interview, just show your passion and enthusiasm for Nike and sports. You will find out if they want to move on to an in person interview before the end of the call. PAY ATTENTION to any and all tips the recruiter gives you for the in person interview, as you will find they will serve your best interest. For the interview I suggest arriving early and checking in with an employee with a clipboard. Be confident, passionate about sports and Nike, speak with authority, be as detailed and specific as possible when answering questions, show your ability to be a part of a team, be the unique candidate that stands out as it is a group interview and most importantly BE YOURSELF. It's a real chill interview. At the end they will tell you that you'll find out either way if they want to proceed. If you are chosen you will receive an email to submit a background check. At that point, if you pass the background check, you will be offered the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NIKE (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First you have the phone screening then if you pass that you get an in person. At the in person there were about 40 people and we were broke into 4 groups & asked a different question by each of the Head Coaches that went from group to group. They weren't difficult questions and the coaches were easy going but you have to be extremely detailed and say exactly what they want to hear. I studied for the interview via glassed door for a couple days and even developed programmed responses for each question and still didn't receive an offer.

    Interview

    Had a Skype call with the dev manager to discuss my experience and the role. Then had an in person interview with the dev team, which included a programming problem on the whiteboard. The team was friendly. They seemed genuinely interested in finding out if I could be a good fit on the team. It wasn't an interview of "gothca" questions.
