    I have been working at NIKE

    Pros

    Good energy, as you'd expect of the brand
    The industry leader, with vision and budget to Think Big
    Many people spend their entire career there, able to move among different roles
    Portland is great place to live

    Cons

    Pay is below market rates, but if you're relocating from a place like NYC, Singapore, London, you'll find cost of living to be much lower in Portland.

    Pros

    discount is great, great team environment, not on commission -- good thing for this type of retail, you have comprehensive training before starting on the floor, will be knowledgeable about workout gear/working out in general

    Cons

    lack of communication from management, hard to request days off, a lot of mix ups around scheduling, tough to juggle retail work and being a full time student

    Pros

    -Very laid back atmosphere
    -Managers are friendly
    -Discount was great

    Cons

    Try to work on busier days. Slower day seems like your shift takes twice as long. It is retail, so you have to be capable of adapting to the customer you are working with. There are many types of people that you will run into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More rotation through positions (i.e. rotate from floor to fitting rooms to cashier etc)

    I worked at NIKE as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good hourly pay, housing is paid for, and travel to Nike WHQ to & from is paid for.
    The campus feels like a college campus, with two fitness centers, multiple soccer fields and running trails throughout
    Weekly training/learning sessions for the intern group are great.

    Cons

    Sometimes felt like I was being underutilized, but it's up to you to go talk with other employees about other parts of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, but figure out how to integrate new technologies to improve business processes
