    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at NIKE in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter contacted me about a position and setup an initial phone screening with a department manager. This interview lasted about 30 minutes and was mainly general questions about my work experience. Once passed, they contacted me back for a face to face interview with 2 managers. Again, it was a very typical interview, with questions about my past, what I am looking for, and how I may handle a few difficult situations. Overall, I have interviewed with many different groups at Nike and have found they are more interested in how you will fit as a person than your super skills. Of course they want a competent person as well.
