    Pros

    Great environment where everyone truly believes in the brand and is passionate about it. If sport is your passion this is the right place.

    Cons

    Long waits for good growth opportunities.
    Most of decisions come from European HQ or WW HQ so territories have a more "execution" role.

    Constant bullying and pressure

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at NIKE

    Pros

    It's amazing discounts however with the premium price of shoes in comparison to the pay I can understand why..

    All the team members on your level are friendly and keep the shifts entertaining to say the most

    Cons

    Terrible management. They do not know what they are doing.

    They choose ridiculous locations for stores and fill these stores with old trainers I would never think about buying and wonder why we don't get a huge profit.

    Management are constantly nagging you and pressurising you to do more and more and do not acknowledge one bit of success.. Feels like I'm back in school.

    The management are bullies in abuse of their power.

    The discount as I said is good but for premium priced shoes on a part time contract it's understandable why..!

    No holidays ever.. Keep getting denied my holiday requests.

    Hours are terrible. Both if you want more hours or less.. Stupid retails 4 hour shift pattern makes it a pain to balance school/college & having a social life..!

    Again the management are abusive to other staff behind their backs and there is a lot and lot of sneaky comments about people's personal lives and work ethics in store.. It really is a very manipulative and bullying atmosphere where If you don't stand up you will be trodden on & if you do stand up for yourself you will be cautious about losing your job.

    Furthermore when a member of staff complained to higher powers the higher power told the manager and made this employees life hell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management need more training and need to stop putting so much pressure on staff as without these staff they would be nothing.

    Listen to your team members.

    I have been extremely honest in this review.

    If you want to work for nike be prepared to be made to feel like a child.
