    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at NIKE in March 2017.

    Interview

    Let me set the stage for this one. I have had multiple recruiters, consulting firms and peers in the industry advise me on how well I would fit into the Nike culture and what a great match my skills would be. I've had multiple recruiters submit me to multiple Nike roles, absolutely convinced I was a shoe in for the role - Nike recruiters, 3rd party recruiters and an internal referral.

    That being said, of all of the above, I've had 2 interviews with Nike. One I already submitted a review and now #2 - a Director role I submitted my resume and application for on Nike careers. Two interviews, no offers and in exception of the first one nothing but outright dropping me.

    This 2nd interview, about a week after submitting for the job, I was excited to receive an email titled "Congratulations! You got the interview!" I thought wow, what a great way to get your candidates/customers (because remember, we as candidates are customers too) excited. This "interview" turned out to be basically an electronically submitted pre-screening question to which Nike referred to as an essay. They sent me a link to this electronic interview website and told me to follow the instructions. I did. The next evening, I spent hours crafting a well-thought out response to the questions. The recruiters email she first sent said "take this interview and then I will be in touch with next steps.

    That was about about a month and a half ago. I sent her several "thank you" and "checking on the status" emails, politely asking where things were. I never heard a word back from her or anyone at Nike. Outright and boldly ignored.

    This seems to generally be how these corporations are "recruiting" in today's world. So either the workload of the recruiters is so unmanageable that their candidate pool is ignored, or, there is just an absolute disregard for candidates, their value and their time. Either way, this is broken and not okay.

    SalesEHQ Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hilversum (Netherlands)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NIKE (Hilversum (Netherlands)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was a normal application process. It started throught the company's website. In few weeks I received an e-mail that allowed me to pass to next round. I had to make an online interview through HireVue. Quite weird. 30sec to prepare the answer and you don't see people in front of you, just yourself. By the way, the questions were just on personality and other stuff. I still prefer the more conventional "human" interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at NIKE (Amsterdam (Netherlands)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was an online interview, where you get written questions and you record your answers to 4 questions. You only have one take to record the message and you are given 3 minutes to answer and 30 seconds to prepare your answer. What bothered me a little is that you can see yourself when you are recording your answers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NIKE in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for the internship program at Nike European HQ. After about a month I received an invitation to a "digital interview" which is done online. You have 5-9 questions, and you have 20 sec to prepare your answer and 3min to reply via your website. It can be quite strange to to talking to your webcam so remember to look at your webcam and stay confident and smiley.
    It's really about getting to know you and your behavior.

    Running & Women's Brand Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at NIKE (London, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was referred by an ex-Nike employee to apply for the role, emailed the Talent Manager and was shortlisted for an assessment centre a week later.

    10 person assessment centre that consisted of an individual question, a group presentation and a 2:1 interview.

    Individual Question - was pretty basic asking what your favourite brand was and why.

    Group Presentation - was to develop a marketing campaign in the run up to an event. We had an hour to prepare and 5 mins to present.

    2:1 Interview - Very casual and conformable interview which was used to learn more about your experience, interests, past work and your understanding and interest in Nike.

    Overall a good experience, likely to re-apply in another capacity if/when possible.
