    Pros

    Excellent facilities with good benefits package. Non rigid working hours. Good sports clubs and communities. Good pay for new entry employees.

    Cons

    Too many unnessesary Stakeholders, work becomes eroded by poor managers. Poor systems and lack of administrative support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to control everything. Employee's are there for a reason, not to just better the managers career.

    Pros

    Family environment and the employee discount is out of this world. The athletes are very motivating. The product is always new and fresh. Never gonna get bored with your surroundings.

    Cons

    Constantly innovating so things can change very quickly. You must be adaptable in the retail environment. Make sure the line communication between management and yourself is open. The late policy is pretty strict and calling out is frowned upon heavily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Depends on your store

    Pros

    If you're looking to move up, it's a great place to use on your resume/linkedIn you get you introduced to the right people, the obvious discount is the best perk, the whole "team" aspect.

    Cons

    Incompetent management, illiterate management, base pay is sad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, in hiring your staff, make sure they know how to customer service their consumers. As an employee, walking into other stores is sad- you feel like you're not supposed to be there. ANd in hiring your management, please make sure they actually deserve to be coaching/managing someone.

    I worked at NIKE part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the best things about work in the retail division was flexibility of the scheduling. As a student, I really appreciated that they were willing to work with my school schedule. The employee discount is very nice especially around the holidays. The community was tight knit and felt like a family. I learned a lot about myself while I worked there and I believe Nike had a lot to do with that. The lessons you learn there can not only be used during your time working, but also in your everyday life. My personal growth through Nike was a very rewarding experience.

    Cons

    There didn't seem to be a lot of opportunities to move up within the company (retail to corporate). The leadership at the store was subpar and at times unprofessional. There was no apparent checks and balances system with the leadership of the store and the people above them. The management were more inclined to go with quick fixes rather than going to the source of the problem. Things get hectic over the holiday season. Do not be surprised if you end up working a 10 hour shift of Black Friday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership needs to be checked and there needs to be less favoritism within the store when hiring/filling new position. They should be better at anticipating problems that may occur and remedy them as quick as possible. There needs to be more focus on setting their employees up for success in and out of the workplace.
