    I worked at NIKE part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a very pleasant work environment, there was definitely room for growth within the company .

    Cons

    Weekly hours were scarce. At times it seemed as though there were too many hands on deck and too many points of management.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should be cohesive in knowing what is happening within the store so that the correct information gets passed along

    Pros

    As an employee, there is a 40% off discount.
    One of the most fun things about working in the retail location is that your job is to serve the customer The customer interaction is the best part about the job. Sometimes you can be speaking with someone famous and never know who it is, until they introduce themselves. Its the customer interaction that makes the job fun.

    Cons

    Management often times are really unprofessional and not fair. They have high expectations and produce low results. In addition, there is a glass ceiling in regards to moving up. If you have a vision of going from retail to corporate, prepare to work harder than you expect.... And that's if they like you.

    I worked at NIKE part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great discount for anyone into sports gear
    Sports-driven environment
    Awesome co-workers from all backgrounds
    Cool Nike events here and there

    Cons

    Not much room for growth outside of retail store
    Requires super-open availability on weekends (I understand weekends are the busiest but don't require us to work Friday-Sunday if you can afford it)

    Advice to Management

    If someone is available to work every single day but one (Sunday), put him or her to work every other day but that one. Don't penalize the person if they can't work on a Sunday because of their sport passion. That's what Nike is all about in the first place. (This goes for Niketown NY, not sure about other locations.)
