    Pros

    Great benefits, great headquarters, great workers

    Cons

    Certain stores are neglected and management are not Nike lovers but business lovers and they don't love the brand which prevents them selling to consumers

    Advice to Management

    Love the brand genuinely and uplift your staff because they are the ones that lift you

    I worked at NIKE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    40% discount and uniform every 3 months. Some great sales assistants who are really under appreciated. Eking and manage,net take credit away from the real stars.

    Cons

    Head office have no idea how terrible management are. The store managers are all Eastern European and want to turn the stores into Zara. Such a shame as it used to be so innovative. Only work here if your friends with a manager or your rota will be horrible and you will be managed out and replaced by a managers friend!

    Advice to Management

    Start giving staff credit instead of taking it all and be more about the brand. You could learn a lot from the athletes, the only staff who actually love the brand!

    Pros

    discount 40% off on any product, you can use your discount for anyone of your friends and family free uniform every 3 months including bottoms, tops and footwear nice, friendly and cool people

    Cons

    management is unorganized and terrible your just a number in that store, you only progress if you suck up I request days off an fill in the correct form and they dont even give me my days off, this happen on more then one occasion they mess up your holiday time off, more than one person including myself booked holiday time off and it didnt get sorted when i first started working there, they messed up my pay and i had to wait another week for my pay i have to chase them up on my uniform, my pay, my holiday request, my days off they get nothing done unless you keep chasing them up but when they want something from you, they chase you up real quick its pathetic how you cant wear any competitive brands, i heard on one occasion somebody wore reebok socks and got sent home on their shift that is so pathetic they never sort out your problems they keep saying come back later we are too busy the discount is what is keeping me here cause everything else is whack

    Advice to Management

    listen to your workers sort yourself out if you are meant to sort out someone time off then sort it out if you are asked to sort out someone holiday request than do it stop being selfish you want people to do stuff for you but cant even do your job stop telling staff to come back later do your job understaffed you guys need to hire more people an when people request time off an filled in the form, look at the form whats the point in following procedure if you guys wont
