    Procurement Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Quick, easy, great people. Nothing unexpected. The phone scan asked about why you love Nike and why you love sports. Since this is a procurement role, there was a mini application/case question on how you would handle pricing materials. The interview day at the head quarters was unbelievable. You get to work out and tour the campus then have interviews. There are plenty of opportunities to network with the current analysts and ask any questions you want. The attire is Nike casual. Everyone wore polos, pants and nike tennis shoes.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    Applied while in business school. Of the 30 people in our cohort who applied, I was one of about 5 who got interviews.
    First interview - pretty straightforward with on campus representative/recruiter. Basic questions, why Nike, what sets you apart. This person was not able to answer much in the way of questions around the internship itself - scope, areas of focus, how many rounds of interview process, etc.

    I moved on to 2nd round, which was video interviewing. Timed video interviews during which you have < 3 minutes to answer each question. It's recorded. There are no do-overs a d you cannot re-record. It was one of my least favourite interview methods since it's very impersonal and a little glitchy.

    I did not make it to the 3rd round. From what I understand from 2 classmates who did, it consisted of 5 total rounds. Neither of them got the internship, including in person interviews and phone interviews with various departments.

    I recommend not pursuing an internship with Nike this way, and instead pursuing informational interviews and temp assignments. Much higher success rate for everyone who applied for Nike roles in our MBA class.

    Scrum Master Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR) in July 2016.

    Interview

    First interview was a phone interview with the Engineering Manager, the team lead, and a Product Owner from another team. There was to have been a follow on interview with a panel of Engineering Managers and another team member. I asked if I'd be able to meet the team and was told that's not part of their process.

    Interview Questions

    • Since there would be no Product Owner on this team I was asked how I would compensate for that. There were several questions around this as well as around how to deal with interruptions from the business and how to deal with team members moving in and out of the team. Additionally, they asked questions about user story elaboration and Agile process improvement.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    It was clear to me that this situation would be chaotic involving long hours and extensive process variance. While the panel seemed nice and well-meaning, they were not staffed to actually be an Agile team. I've been in the spot before with Nike and found it not only unworkable but the environment seemed heedless of certain basic human needs on the team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at NIKE (Portland, OR) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Talk to someone from staffing, do in person interview, schedule another interview. Very hard to get in touch with management to schedule a second interview time. No one answered email or phone at all. So I started scheduling other things instead of with them as a result of them not really making up their mind or being un contactable. Currently I may have other offers but its hard to work with managers that don't follow up if they need employees.
