    Director Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NIKE (Beaverton, OR) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The process took several months. Typical process of initial interview with recruiting, then interview with hiring manager, and then site interviews. I was invited to Beaverton for in person interviews that included a full day of interviews with groups of two or three totaling about 12 people and then two follow up phone interviews the following week. The whole process was very positive and everyone I met was very pleasant. They put me up in a very nice hotel and rented a car for me, gave me a generous per Diem, and gave me an opportunity to shop in the company store at a 50% discount. The questions all center on cultural/emotional intelligence. It appears their focus is whether you will fit in their culture and can manage in a matrix structured organization. The questions were not difficult and they did not press me for additional information. I couldn't determine whether those involved weren't really engaged in the interviewing process or that represented their non-confrontational culture. Following the interviews they stated they would be back with me in a few weeks. A few weeks past and no word. I finally wrote the recruiter a month later for an update. She sent me a quick response that suggested they had forgotten about me. They had offered the job to someone else. So in conclusion, a solid process, friendly culture, that fell apart at the end.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    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.

    Interview

    applied online got a call the next week got a phone screening. the phone screening was short after the phone screening I was asked to come in the next day for a group interview, but for some reason the other candidates did not show up so it ended up being just me and two other managers. interview lasted about 30 minutes, they were very laid back and you could tell that they were passionate about their job. some of the questions they asked were experienced based. some advice would be to know your history on nike , they like to see that you done you research.
