    Pros

    It was a great a place to work, I learned a lot about sneakers and work out gears. It was fun when it was not overly crowded. Management would work with your schedule which is great if you are in school or have another job.

    Cons

    Customers would be very impatient especially when each athlete had to juggle between 5-8 customers per person. Hours were crappy at times and the ability to move up in the company is a nightmare.

    Niketown Athlete - Best Retail Job!

    Current Employee - Athlete  in  New York, NY (US)
    Current Employee - Athlete in New York, NY (US)

    Pros

    By far the best retail job I've ever had. I've worked for companies like Abercrombie and Marshalls before, but Nike has been the best one by far.

    Nike really considers its employees. Once you're hired, current employers teach you a class for 3 days straight on product knowledge. It also includes fun actives so you know what you're doing before you get to the floor.

    I actually miss going to work the days that I'm off.

    - Great Discounts
    - Best Working Environment
    - If You Love Sports This Is The Place For You
    - Growth Opportunity
    - Great Managers
    - Flexible
    - Cool initiatives on new products, such as new cleats, shoes or apparel.
    - Clubs: such as Nike Running Club and Training Club that employees and consumers can be a part of.
    - Great compensation

    Cons

    The only downside to being an Athlete at Nike is competitiveness. It's hard to get the job, with thorough interview steps, such as phone interview and panel interview. However, its all worth it once you part of the swoosh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. There's nothing better than representing Nike everyday at work.

    Current Employee - Shipping and Receiving Associate  in  New York, NY (US)
    Current Employee - Shipping and Receiving Associate in New York, NY (US)

    Pros

    Starting pay is good
    Pays for you to got to school if you are full-time and it fits into the list of curriculum they accept
    Each floor dedicated to different individuals
    New positions come up fairly often

    Cons

    Working Shipping and Receiving since October 2013 if you are Part time under( less than 20 hours mostly) according to corporate can only schedule us 4 hours a week
    Abuse of power in terms of hiring and personal hook ups although you are asked to have people you know apply
    No grace period anymore
    Store can feel divided from S&R to sales floor as opposed to a whole team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is more for upper management overseeing the company: Find a more effective way to delegate the budget so that there are not employees literally struggling and calling in constantly because you can only give 4 hours a week.
