    I have been working at NIKE (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer generous employee discounts. You get to be around new footwear and apparel. Flexible schedules...

    Cons

    The work gets tedious. Hard to advance. Hard to survive on paychecks. What does one expect in retail? Benefits and pay can be much better.

    Advice to Management

    You can offer good employees better pay and perks.

    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 Management

    Be transparent and honest with employees.

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for. I've always admired the way they have Marketed their products and they will continue to be a top notch complany as long as they keep the innovation of their products a priority. Far too often companies like this get stale in their approach and as a result they begin to lose market share.

    Cons

    The hours were fairly long. Don't get me wrong. I love to work as much as the next person, however, at some point and time there has to be a balance between work and the home life. In my new capacity I have that freedom.

    Advice to Management

    Be more objective

    Pros

    there are some talented people that work there. 30% off product. and free shoes every 6 months.

    Cons

    the coaching policies need a change. if you have a bad egg it takes forever to get ride of them. no support from district level on fixing store. only when his job was on the line did he act to change things.

    Advice to Management

    get involved with the employees to understand them. it is an urban environment. you have to earn respect not just be given it because you have a title.

    Pros

    Pay 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

    Cons

    Management 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 Management

    Please 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
