I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at NIKE (Beaverton, OR).
Two phone interviews that were conducted with personnel experienced in placement of job candidates. It was a friendly environment and the people seemed genuinely interested in learning about me and whether I would be a good fit for the job and for Nike's corporate culture, which is relatively young, active and alternative.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at NIKE (Beaverton, OR).
Many phone interviews followed by a visit to campus. In person visit to HQ included a day of interviews and a panel interview. They give you a packet prior to arriving encouraging you to take risks and be innovative. Communication is not very good overall - Very unique culture

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at NIKE (Beaverton, OR) in May 2015.
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.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week – 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 2+ weeks – interviewed at NIKE (Beaverton, OR) in March 2015.
Interview consisted of 3 rounds - HR screening, phone call with hiring manager and onsite interviews. There were 4 interviews with Directors (mainly STAR and experience-based questions). I was given time to prepare and present a case to a group of 5 directors. It was a relatively easy case on negotiation strategy with a vendor, but the presentation part was intimidating. Did not get the offer.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months – 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 – 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.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days – interviewed at NIKE (Beaverton, OR) in December 2014.
I literally jumped up and told my other boss that I had a personal emergency when I heard that they wanted to interview me at Nike WHQ within the next few hours. Yes, not a few days notice, barely a few hours notice... But being new to the area I thought the opportunity would be worth it so I caved.
I met with a panel who asked me standardized Nike questions from a check off list. I did well and expressed my enthusiasm so my would-be boss gave me a brief tour around the lake and the park that is Nike WHQ...
Days later I was called in for a follow up interview where my would-be boss asked some technical questions and quizzed me on Excel and SQL, then I met with his boss. By the time I got the the parking lot my recruiter informed me I had received the offer.
All the while I narrowly dodged questions aimed to pin me into a certain sports category because I just don't care much about sports, though I do run (for health) so claimed to be into running - now they think I want to race everyone... wtf?
