Great work environment, but can be hard to maneuver from one job to the next.

Learning Coordinator (Former Employee)
Beaverton, OR

I worked at NIKE full-time for less than a year

ProsIt is a laid back work environment, but there is definite emphasis on getting the job done. You have the opportunity to go work out on your lunch. There are a lot of fun events especially during the summer. Also, there are athletes that drop in quite often.

ConsIt can be very hard to maneuver from one job to the next if you do not know how the culture works.

Top brand for sports

Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at NIKE part-time for less than a year

ProsNike treats employees nicely on the retail side. Its a laid back type of atmosphere, with the priority being great customer service. The employees are fun to work with, and will be your friends outside of work. The gear is awesome!

ConsThe hours can be inconsistent, and sometimes annoying especially during special events and holidays, but that's to be expected in a retail job.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe employee discount on Nike clothes and gear is awesome!

Amazing Company, Amazing People

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Beaverton, OR

I have been working at NIKE as a contractor for less than a year

ProsEven as a contractor the team I work for has treated me like I am really apart of their team. Nike makes you feel at home and part of the family.

ConsMoving from a contractor to perm. position takes a long time. I feel that while Nike teaches to obtain and retain the top talent, but they overlook who they have or are slow to do that.

Advice to Senior ManagementJust to remember to hang on to talent and loyalty. Having both qualities is having a gem in an employee/ETW and not all have BOTH qualities, so those who do, keep them.

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