    Pros

    Awesome company where you have great benefits and longevity with yearly bonuses (well most of the time).

    Cons

    Management should realize that everyone shouldn't have to live in Portland, OR in order to move up in the company. Very little room for advancement unless you move to Portland, OR. Very hard to get promoted in the DC world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move some upper level positions out of the world headquarters. Listen to current employees. You don't have to always go outside to hire.

    Pros

    Nike was a perfect job for me while going to school. It was a very fast-paced environment but I had fun while working. They payed me above minimum wage which I was totally fine with. The discount was great not to mention we also got a discount at Converse

    Cons

    Not enough hours. Some weeks I only got 4 hours

    Pros

    I loved working at Nike. Not only was the 30% off factory store purchases and 40% off Nike Town purchases, amazing. But the work atmosphere was too. A very team oriented atmosphere. The managers at my store were always willing to go above and beyond to help me with anything I needed. Nike gives you all the tools you need to be a successful sales person for their company. The managers are very knowledgable of the product, and in turn so are the employees. This was the perfect place to start my first retail job at.

    Cons

    During the slow season it sometimes got boring from running out of tasks to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing. This company knows how to run a business. (Obviously)
