Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Ashford, Kent – 20 September 2017
Nike is my first job and I couldn't have had a better one! A typical day at work starts off with a game to get us all motivated before we open the store and work with customers to ensure they get what they are after. It also consists of getting new styles out, making sure units are full, standards are completed to a good standard, customers are satisfied and everyone is feeling content.
From working at Nike for 2 1/2 years, I have learnt how to work with people confidently, how to get a job done to a good standard quickly, how to work on several tasks at once, how to put styles together and I have learnt a lot of knowledge about the products. A huge deal of why I have learnt so much is due to the management team with their different but exciting training sessions and conversations. The management at Nike are very hard working and look after their staff. They inject a positive, enthusiastic energy into the workplace that keeps us motivated.
Moving on, the hardest part of the job for me is letting customers down when we no longer have a product or one in their size both in store and online. I get great joy of being able to satisfy the customer and brighten up their day and I don't enjoy not being able to do so. My most enjoyable part of the job for me is all the new people I get to meet and come across. It can be people who I work with or customers that I get to know throughout a transaction or from being a long term customer.
Overall, I enjoy my job however I believe it's time to look for a job that is suited to my ideal career.

A wonderful Brand, where you can work hard and experience some incredible events. The product is amazing and in general the team that work there are warm and engaging. Career progression is a real possibility if you can understand the Company Politics.

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.
Customer Assistant (Current Employee) – London – 24 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.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Kuwait – 9 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.
At Nike, your commitment and involvement are compulsory to creating a vibrant work team. It is important to have a great attitude as this shows through when delivering your customer service. The brand is customer service focused.
The job was very calm and flexible with different shifts and hours gave me a better edge of working with less interruption as a student. Finally, terms were very motivating to get people through with ease.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Ashford, Kent – 4 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.

Long hours, management, never seeing daylight over the weekend
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
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.

long days, rude customers, mess everywhere, staff being lazy
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.
