I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR) in August 2015.
It was a last minute scheduled interview as they needed someone right away. I interviewed with three people. First the two that I will be working with more closely then their manager came in.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR) in April 2015.
This was my first interview ever. My sister used to work at Nike in downtown Portland but left to go to Peace Corps. She put in a good word to one of her friends that still works there and I got a call to see when I could do the interview. I wore a short sleeve knit shirt from gap and a pair of black pants. Other people in the group wore more active wear. I arrived about 4 minutes before and they told me there was a group of 4 people waiting, so I went over and talked to them before the interview started. The interview started and we went downstairs, we were interviewed by 2 people. The questions were basically about how you work with a team as well as questions about conflict. They got back to me in a week and sent me an email about a background check.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR) in March 2015.
Group interview; myself and another applicant with two managers. Very formal, simple questions. I believe at the time they were simply looking to hire good workers for the summer, busy season.
- Do you have any hidden talents? Answer Question
Helpful (2)Declined OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR) in January 2015.
Worst experience ever! HR manager was unprofessional and did not really seem to care about the applicants. Had several interviews and was unimpressed by the nature of the entire process. One example was when I was scheduled for a phone interview at a set time. When the HR manager didn't call me, I emailed her but had no response. It seemed to me that they had the mentality that we are Nike, we can do whatever you want. Overall, the process took 4 months after I was told a decision would be made at 6 weeks top. This process really turned me off from the company and I decided that it was not a place I wanted to work for.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR) in January 2015.
I arrived at the campus where the reception desk greeted me. Once the talent acquisition manager brought me into the interview room I was met with an easy going panel of engaged department heads. I was able to walk them through my portfolio and work experience in an open environment.
- Do you lead an active lifestyle? Answer Question
Helpful (7)No OfferAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR).
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.
- all as expected Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR) in February 2014.
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.
- Nothing was too unexpected, mostly behavioral questions. Answer Question

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR).
Panel interview from a set list of questions.
- Standard questions: tell us about a time you failed... what accomplishment are you most proud of... give us an example of how you overcame diversity.... etc... Answer Question
standard back and forth with HR/Hiring manager. Slightly flexible, but not a lot. Chances are there were about 50 other people that applied for your job and they know that.
