    I worked at NIKE part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nike holds a lot of events which employees can be a part of, room for growth and development depending how you apply yourself. Meet many great people as well. Benefits are good, if your are full time.

    Cons

    Pay is average, not outstanding considering its a huge company. Hours are hard to come by, based on business needs. Use to be fun to work for, parties, employee events, better perks but have noticed a decline in "employee appreciation".

    Pros

    Sports and unlimited career opportunities! You get to wear comfy gear all day! It's a very fun environment!
    Nike is pretty flexible when it comes to school. You can custom make your schedule according to your life style.
    While working at Nike you get a chance to engage with many people from all over the world! I have met tons of celebs and athletes while working at Nike.
    The company also have a Better World program where one is given a chance to participate in community events while still being paid as if you were at work. Awesome company to work for!

    Cons

    Super busy during Marathon but fun at the same time. I believe the benefits with healthcare can be a little better.
    Another con is the blackout days are from Oct 10, 2014 -Jan 2015. with little open days available for time off.

    Pros

    The discount would the the first pro. This is my first retail job and I have gained a lot of experience working here at Niketown.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard to move up if someone doesn't quit, move up, or get fired. Most of the time you tend to get stuck depending on what you want to achieve in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more considerate on a persons work value instead of how they answer questions in an interview.

    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.
