    I have been working at NIKE full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Tremendous company ethos and a highly sought after brand which made it a pleasure to sell. A fast paced, high energy environment and a company that cares deeply about its employees. An example: full medical benefits from day one. Great people to work with and a beautiful, state-of-the- art store environment in which any employee would be proud to work.

    Cons

    Long hours are the name of the game in retail and this position is no exception. Unless you are comfortable with 12 hour days from start to finish, this is probably not the situation for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attract more college educated athletes who truly know and appreciate the history of the NIKE brand from firsthand experience in the athletic arena. Recognize these individuals and help them seek greater, higher level advancement in the company after they have learned the retail essence of the company.

    Flexible scheduling, Nice discount, Refreshed floor displays, Bonuses, Strong salary. the people that work there come from different walks of life.

    Cons

    I feel that nike is starting to lose its vision. in part to thirst to retain its position at the top. Quality over quantity. Rather keep quality and quanity at a premium level.

    I worked at NIKE part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The discounts are awesome! Being that I love the entire NIKE brand and company, just walking into the store made me excited. Customer service wasn't bad, as long as you didn't take things too personally. My coworkers were great and made the job that much more fun and exciting.

    Cons

    New management began to come and change everything. We no longer had the freedom to work on our own, but instead were watched closely. That made it a little uncomfortable and less relaxed. Former staff began to get fired or refused to return, and some of the managers' true colors started to show. No work place is perfect. This is the only place that I would tolerate this, because I love the brand so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be happy whenever other managers and staff get promotions and greater opportunities. It's okay to not always be number one at everything. The lead manager needs to stop with the hidden agendas and instead help his staff grow and aspire to achieve more.
