This company has some potential

Athlete (Current Employee)
Garden City, NY

I have been working at NIKE part-time for 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

ConsNo 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 Senior ManagementBe transparent and honest with employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Niketown NY is ok

Shipping and Receiving Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at NIKE part-time for more than 3 years

ProsStarting pay is good
Pays for you to got to school if you are full-time and it fits into the list of curriculum they accept
Each floor dedicated to different individuals
New positions come up fairly often

ConsWorking Shipping and Receiving since October 2013 if you are Part time under( less than 20 hours mostly) according to corporate can only schedule us 4 hours a week
Abuse of power in terms of hiring and personal hook ups although you are asked to have people you know apply
No grace period anymore
Store can feel divided from S&R to sales floor as opposed to a whole team

Advice to Senior ManagementThis is more for upper management overseeing the company: Find a more effective way to delegate the budget so that there are not employees literally struggling and calling in constantly because you can only give 4 hours a week.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The pay is good,everything else, not so much

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at NIKE

ProsPay is good,you receive bonus checks throughout the fiscal year, benefits such as paid time off, if you are part-time over or full time

ConsManagement does not follow protocols they say everyone should adhere to, difficult to advance on running floor if you are not a runner which is very bias becasue people can becvome full-time after just starting while others after working for years such as myself are still under appreciating and left at a part-time under position, and a huge portion of that is beacuse im not a runner, hard to leave your floor and try to move to a new one, managers talk to you a s if they are well programmed drones when you ask them simplistic questions regarding policy or protocol. They hire additional seasonals and then claim its beacuse our availability is not oopen enough and tell us after they hire them, cutting hours for permanent employees

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease listen to sales associates,we are the grunts butu many times we do the most work and know what this business is really lacking and needs, thank you
