    I have been working at NIKE part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work in some very comfortable clothing in comparison to other jobs. The job is pretty hard to lose, the workday and stress of the job depends almost solely on the management team. Pays pretty well for a job that mainly consists of talking to customers and performing basic retail duties

    Cons

    If you don't like how things are being done at your store, there is not much you can do about it. And the company would rather replace you than make accommodations to improve things.

    Advice to Management

    Stop Micromanaging, and pay more attention to employee needs, wants and concerns.

    I worked at NIKE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get in and started. Began on the sales floor and worked my way up. The environment was very upbeat and I loved it. Of course you can not beat the dress code! If you are willing to work hard, it is not hard to be promoted. The discount is also a plus!!

    Cons

    It is still sales/retail. Use it as a place to start... it is not a career for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing great!

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

    Pros

    the best reason to work at Nike Boston is because of the discount and location.

    Cons

    the pay isn't enough to live in Massachusetts, Managers are extremely prejudice and if you are of color you will be discriminated, Managers do not help any athletes move up in the company, favoritism is real ( the only way you'll move up even if you suck at your job), The managers also have intimate relationships with other managers so if they're fighting the entire store will know because they'll take it out on you, The Turnover rate is insane, its more of a dictatorship rather than a well ran store. i promise you everyone currently employed hates their jobs and are staying solely for the discount.

    btw there is never a full management team, Nike Boston is ALWAYS hiring and not for a good reason.

    Advice to Management

    start treating employees with actual respect rather than asserting dominance.
    over nights shift employees should be able to dress comfortably rather than wear the staff dress that will get unbelievably dirty and/or rip after one night of flow, give actual hard working employees a chance to move up.
