    I have been working at NIKE

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, Nice discount, Refreshed floor displays, Bonuses, Strong salary. the people that work there come from different walks of life.

    Cons

    I feel that nike is starting to lose its vision. in part to thirst to retain its position at the top. Quality over quantity. Rather keep quality and quanity at a premium level.

    I worked at NIKE

    Pros

    People most definitely. there were always a different demographic coming in the store looking to buy product. so in short every day was a breath of fresh air.

    Cons

    once the facade fades you realize that you are only just a nike lackey nothing but an employee. I guess thats ultimately a job is but i expected some different with the brand
