Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at NIKE.

Interview Details

Applied online and was contacted a couple days later by a recruiter. Did a phone interview with the recruiter followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager a couple days later. Two weeks later I went onsite and did a panel interview with the hiring manager and two other members of the team. The panel interview was difficult but not overwhelming. Each panel member had a couple of prepared questions and they went around the table asking their scripted questions. The questions were about my background, examples of past experiences and hypothetical situations. The panel session lasted about one hour. All of the team members were extremely personable. Overall it was a very enjoyable interview process.

It was after the interview that things got strange...

A few hours after the interview I received confirmation from recruiter that they wanted to make me an offer. I was asked what I was looking for in terms of salary and I told them what I made currently. It was the same number as I told the recruiter in the initial interview so it shouldn't have come as a surprise. Recruiter sent me a benefits package and said would get back to me.

Couple days and then weeks went by and I did not hear anything about the status. Finally I was able to chase down recruiter to find out what happened and then was told position was pulled. Very little detail was provided. It was all very odd since I had already been told they wanted to make an offer.

Interview Questions
  • The most difficult questions were the "tell me about a time" questions. I don't remember any specifics but I remember they really wanted to know how you handled yourself in certain types of situations historically.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at NIKE.

    Interview Details

    If you know people in Nike, you have a better chance of being considered for a position. You must fit the job requirements very closely. Phone interview and then panel interview. The panel interview tends to have 3-4 managers/directors. There may be other meetings/interviews with other team members to see if you are a fit with the team.

    Interview Questions
    • Nike uses behavioral questions that apply directly with the core competencies for the position.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at NIKE.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was timely, 1st interview, by phone, followed shortly after that. Just general going through: who are you, what is your background, your CV & work experience, what tickles you, and where do you see yourself in the future. Second interview on site.

    Interview Questions
    • "How would you negotiate a contract with a supplier". Strange question - as 1) in my experience up to hat point, as a Project Manager I never had to do that previously, and 2) Nike has a separate procurement department whom as far as I was aware deal with contracts & negotiations.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation - I just accepted the offer (duh).
