    I have been working at NIKE part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    **Growth (only if your enter the company as an assistant manager plus) (or if your primary job is to adulate(brown nose) to as many upper management as you can find)

    Fun work staff - with changing schedules and seasonal hires, you can meet a lot of interesting coworkers.

    Opportunity to travel - company has many events and actively sends employees to different events***(fully paid)

    Casual work environment and dress code

    Cons

    No Growth - if you start as an "Athlete" show talent, hard work, dedication and get a degree in the management or marketing field, the company will hire outside personnel for advanced positions.

    Management - management will consistently lie to employees about company policies (HR dept. however is very transparent and honest)

    Management (*at Garden City) creates an adversarial environment between management and employees and also employees vs employees (competitions via NPS surveys of which there are no rewards towards top employees)

    No benefits for Part-time Under employees and very expensive for non-management Full-time and Part-time Over employees.

    Management expects unlimited availability from employees for part-time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent and honest with employees.

    Pros

    People most definitely. there were always a different demographic coming in the store looking to buy product. so in short every day was a breath of fresh air.

    Cons

    once the facade fades you realize that you are only just a nike lackey nothing but an employee. I guess thats ultimately a job is but i expected some different with the brand
