    Digital Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Portland, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at NIKE.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited via LinkedIn. The recruiter set me up with interviews across different departments since it's a matrix organization, but it wasn't clear to me which specific role I was interviewing for at any given time. I thought I was talking to someone about the first role we'd discussed, but found out the recruiter was putting me up for a different role only when asked for specific feedback about the person's department. I would have prepared differently had I known I was actually speaking about a second role. A great, innovative company with disorganization on the recruiting side : / I also had a scheduled interview that was canceled without anyone telling me.

    Product Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Portland, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at NIKE in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted through my university's job board without applying through Nike. My interview was over the phone due to school closer, and was very relaxed. I thought I made a strong connection with the interviewer, but they did not select me for a second round interview.

    Digital Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Portland, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at NIKE in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Complex matrix organization, smart people. Had many conversations, one call was with someone driving to work who had never seen my resume. Had another call that never happened, was told the person who scheduled it had left the company and that the call was supposed to have been canceled. Not super impressed with their internal organization. Note: they tried to recruit me, originally found me on LinkedIn. Did not communicate about the process or specific roles I may have been speaking to them about. If you can see past that, could be a great place, I'm sure! I stopped talking to them when they schedule a call for me that I didn't know was about a specific role, the role they initially contacted me about was filled internally but they didn't tell me about it until after the awkward phone call and I directly asked the recruiter. They said they wanted me to fly out to meet a bunch of people, but when I said I was scheduled on the original date they never mentioned coming out again. Too many schedulers involved. The difference in quality of communication between admins and the execs was marked.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing out of the ordinary, asked about the market in general and products they were building as well as categories of innovation I saw for the coming years.   Answer Question
