    I have been working at NIKE part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours, Great Discounts, and friendly environment. Managers consistently try to keep an upbeat and positive environment and the company as a whole truly cares about their employees. Nike's scheduling system makes it easy to request time off and shows you your schedule three weeks in advance. Working at nike will give you great product knowledge as well as the history of the company.

    Cons

    Can get boring at times when the store is slow, work can be repetitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more leadership opportunities.

    I worked at NIKE full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working at Nike gave me a chance to grow as a person and an employee. For me, it was an intense work environment but I really enjoyed my job so that helped deal with the day to day intensity. Most of the people that I worked with were great. The team environment feels more like a family than just coworkers. Definitely high energy and fun work place that values its employees and expects the best from them.

    Cons

    Nike seems to have a just do it way of doing business. There are no excuses. This attitude doesn't always make sense when it comes to training. Nike doesn't always make sure that people are trained and prepared for their next opportunity. They do not on board people well at all. It's sink or swim. They do not pay well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I haven't seen many excellent managers at Nike. Most of them are lacking leadership skills. The company should focus on properly training and hiring the right people to manage others. A bad manager can really ruin the work environment and the effectiveness of the people that they manage.

    I worked at NIKE full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    From the first moment I walked into NikeTown San Francisco when I was hired I knew the place would be something special. The atmosphere of Nike Stores is like none i've ever experienced. It's a very team oriented atmosphere.

    Cons

    The challenges are no different from most places. It's retail and you have to work hard for everything that you get. I just wish there were more stores in the Fresno Central Valley area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep training store athletes to be the best at what they do, and everyone will prosper.
