Lead Apparel (Current Employee) –  Hatfield, Hertfordshire26 August 2017
I love working in the store especially for the reason that it is family oriented environment. Being miles away from home has never been easier. There were disputes with the previous management, nevertheless all sorts of disputes were handled professionally. The job however gets too easy. Other than being able to build rapport both with my colleagues and customers, there has been a vast improvement on my interpersonal communication skills.
Pros
Free uniform and online discounts
Cons
Non-incentive and boring

Fun but challenging job
Customer Assistant (Current Employee) –  London24 August 2017
Nike as a company is great, there a so many perks. I enjoyed helping the customers and making sure they left with the right product. However their policy is wrong, group of boys coke in daily to steal products. I myself have been threatened by these young boys as I have made eye contact with them whilst they were in the processes of putting boxes in their bags. Nike would have been the perfect company to work for however it's not too great when you're scared and put in challenging situations.
Pros
Free clothes and shoes
Cons
Thieves

Short lunches

Great place
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Kuwait9 July 2017
Straightforward, fairly simple job. The atmopshere was great since it was right next to one of the most popular clubs in kuwait, known as Al Corniche beach. Main problem was dealing with some customers that have no patience or were not polite.

Awful
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ashford, Kent4 July 2017
Having worked at Nike for almost two years I feel I have wasted those years listening to managers who are a bunch of job worths, while on the topic of managers it was rare to see the headcoach work past five despite all other employees often working until 9 some employees were expected to do this more than others. Managers often felt it was beneath them to serve customers and simply brush them off to a regular sales assistant and then complain about how service needed to be improved even though they displayed the worse service. You are expected to stay on your feet for the whole 8 hours you work while the managers sit in the office. Obviously you are welcome to grab a drink from the staffroom but not without a manager soon coming along to sarcastically ask if you are on your lunch break. All in all I'm glad to be leaving.
Pros
Discount, hour lunch break
Cons
Long hours, management, never seeing daylight over the weekend

Sales Associate (Athlete)
Store Athlete (Customer Assistant) (Current Employee) –  Durham18 June 2017
Im a part time member but regularly do overtime, the hours are long and the breaks are short.

They are unclear about pay (was told my wage would be higher than it is) and you only receive overtime in arrears.

Management are childish and do not have your best interests at heart. I haven't seen the store manager working past 5pm (store closes at 8 most nights) and doesn't use the tills, assists, radios etc.

I have worked in a diverse range of retailers and this has not even compared.
Pros
Overtime available, lots of staff at a similar age
Cons
Long hours, short breaks, don't feel valued.

A good brand
Sales coach/assistant manager (Current Employee) –  Liverpool, Merseyside7 June 2017
A good brand to work for, great in work benefits and a strong team ethic. Senior management are on the whole approachable and helpful. The only major difficulties i have found are based around people not procedures, too many opinions and too many cooks spoiling the broth, especially in areas involving visual presentation.
The most enjoyable part of the job, conversely, is also people, a strong team environment and a culture of continuous development
Pros
holiday allowance, in work benefits, people

Lively, Creative and Welcoming Staff and Atmosphere
Sales Assistant (Part-time) (Former Employee) –  Swindon, Wiltshire17 May 2017
From delivery at 8.00am to shutdown at 9pm on a weekday, there was always something to be done, to be cleaned, to be organised or binned. Shop floor would fill up quick on weekends and staff would have to be alert at all times and on the ball. Thefts would occur due to the sheer number of people of lack of staff. management was friendly and caring, focusing on how employees can develop themselves in the work life, and personal life.
Pros
50% nike discount, good salary, friendly people, good vibes
Cons
long days, rude customers, mess everywhere, staff being lazy

Fun WorkPlace
Athlete (Former Employee) –  London7 May 2017
A typical day at work was fun and was always able to meet customers from various backgrounds and was also able to build relationships with customers. my co-workers made it a very comfortable working environment the work culture was very youthful and aimed to embrace everyone with no judgment and the drive was to love everyone no matter the shape, size, race or religion.

However the management did not treat everyone of their staff very fairly and they lost the authenticity of customer service and wanted to drive sales more than friendship which became unusual as I believe in being genuine. the hardest part of the job was having 4 customers wanting to pairs of shoes each to try on regardless of if you were the only person available to serve them, but it taught me to keep calm in all situations and organisation and being in control of all situations.
