    Nike Athlete Interview

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

    I applied online – interviewed at NIKE in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on line and got a call from Nike about 3 weeks later. He asked standard questions like customer service, passion for sports and why Nike. You're application is profiled for a specific section so he will ask about that, mine was running so he asked me my passion about that. Then set me up for a group panel interview the next day. Business casual was the dress code, I wore some Nike sneakers , other people were wearing shoes and jeans. The group panel interview was with 4 people and 3 managers. they start off with introducing themselfs for about 5 minutes each so when its youre turn talk a lot about you and youre passion for sports. They asked us our favorite sports movie first and the moved in to very detailed questions. Tell us about a time when you were asked or told to do something that you didn't believe in or agree with and what did you do was one. It helps A LOT if you play a sport and talk about it really technical. Even tho I was profiled for running I got hired for soccer. Again can't say enough about how much they want to hear about you being part of a sport. Then asked us about team work and what is you're biggest passion. Over all it was introduce each other and then 4 questions andif you get hired they email you a babackground check around 2 days after.

    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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elizabeth, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Elizabeth, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NIKE in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pretty simple. They ask you alot about your experiences as a retail consumer and employee if you have any. Very run of the mill questions about your personal life and what you can provide to Nike. Come with your A game and just be yourself, dress nicely and try not to wear anything with a corporate logo or even Nike for that matter. Wearing alot of Nike apparel or something outrageous like quarks is just tacky lol. If you have alot of money to buy overpriced garbage it begs the question why you are applying as an athlete. It doesn't look proffesional but may impress the interviewers (which are going to be your managers btw) if you can pull it off professionally.

    Interview Details

    Its a online application, then the'll call you in for a interview if you fit the criteria. Then, you go into a group interview, then they ask you several questions. Eye contact, attire, and even having a resume (just in case) at hand is a BIG PLUS.
