    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.)

    Advice to Management

    Learn ways to become a team don't just talk about it make the words become the actions

    "Great Company, Management is OK"

    I have been working at NIKE (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The discount is amazing at 40%
    - Fun co-workers, everyone is outgoing for the most part
    - Upbeat environment
    - Provided staff uniform for work
    - External events and opportunities
    - Notable people come in all the time to make connections

    Cons

    They expect for you to give top notch service, which is fine. The issue is we rely almost solely on technology and when technology doesn't work, our business doesn't work and then customers get mad at you and then it just sucks. There are some really awesome leaders who care about you growing and are there to help shape you to become a better worker but some are just there to boss you around. But I suppose that is with any job.
