I begin my day by greeting my team when I arrive to the store and make the cups of tea if anyone would like one. I then assess the delivery that has arrived in store and take a radio so I can communicate with my team.
I speak to the manager or head coach to find out the days targets and how we have been performing throughout the week.
I also speak to my stock room lead and find out what the targets of the day are, eg New product or a product recall which has been announced.
I complete a stock replenishment every morning before I begin the delivery.
I organise and prioritise the delivery so whether the delivery is new products or products which are replenishment I can process the items we need the most.
I make sure my area is always tidy when processing in adherence to health and safety as well as preventing items being missed or damaged.
I communicate any issues with the delivery, eg damaged stock to my team leader in the stock room any my manager.
If any new products arrive I make sure the items are processed quickly, a size run is complete and I speak to our stores product placement lead so they know a new products need to be put out on the shop floor.
I quickly reply to any requests from staff regarding clothing or footwear.
I search for each item quickly and either send the item up using our lift or I take the item to them.
if a item is not available I will always offer an alternative where possible.

Nike's organisational culture supports business resilience and capability. Organisational culture is the combination of traditions, habits, values, and behavioural expectations among employees. Nike’s workers are given a set of instructions, rules and expectations on how to do their jobs, with consideration for their relations with customers and other employees. This approach ensures that the company maintains its corporate culture, which partly contributes to the success of the business. As one of the giants in the global athletic shoe, apparel and equipment market, Nike Inc. continues its policies and strategies to promote an organisational culture that reinforces business resilience and competence.

I worked at Nike almost a year and the only thing that held me there were the other athletes with their fun , laughs and positive energy. Other than that I feel I wasted that year working for a company that is managed by the most rude , negative, ignorant people . There were Many times when a customer would come over and ask if I’m ok after noticing how poorly I was spoken to by a manager especially the head coach ( head manager ) . It was rare to see the head coach work past 5 which was clearly above him . All employees were expected to work till 9/10 and I worked every single weekend until I left which was just behind a joke . ALL managers were the first to jump at you and be on to you about sign ups charging for bags , customer interaction, chat, the ay you were standing and so on but I would rarely ever see them doing those things themselves . If you made the smallest of mistakes you were pulled into the office and written up straight away . If you clocked in at 56 not 55 you’d have to fill in an immediate late form . Managers also felt it was beneath them to serve customers or answer the customers questions . They would radio for an athlete to come and do it for them . There would be occasions when The head coach would see something on the floor and instead of just picking it up like a normal person would he would radio for me to come and get it for him !!! Favourites were VERY apparent at Nike . The only time you could ever leave the floor was for a drink or toilet . E

Enjoyed a long career at Nike, the brand is amazing and have great morals if you can get it into the correct store with a development driven manager you can go far. Sadly this isn’t the case for Ashford, The management don’t get on which the whole team sees and plays on, like I said above if you’re not young free and single with nothing tying you down you won’t go very far and they expect the world from you. The company talk a lot about diversity inclusion and mental well-being which feels all a little fake as soon as you have any problems they’re not really there to support.
You’re treated a lot as a child which means anyone over the age of 18 doesn’t stay long and looks for a job that doesn’t monitor your toilet breaks and how many times you’ve had a drink.
The management in the store don’t get along whatsoever and some clearly think they are better than others, very quick to throw you under the bus for personal gains.
Some members of management are really humble and want to help you others are all about themselves! Higher management outside of the store territory and above are great and always supportive never had any issues in this aspect of management.
They always take the time to listen when they visit the store no matter whether you are the head coach or a part-time sales associate, they understand that everyone plays a key role and want to make everyone feel a part of the Nike famil

Worked at The Flagship London Location so here is the stuff you want to know:
- The pay is poor, working in Central London and you are paid £8 per hour, as an athlete, paid at the end of each month.
- The hours aren't too bad, typical retail, closes at 9pm so you can work till 10pm. The management are fairly flexible with hours as they can give you certain days off etc. Full time is 38 Hours.
- The uniform is provided for you and you receive around an allowance to spend on uniform every 3 months. full timers get more than part timers, of course and allowance changes dependent on season.
- Any breaks over 15 mins are Unpaid.
- The staff are great, quite a young team. Everyone is friendly and get along.
- Although the London HQ is only down the road, the people at the HQ really don't offer much help.
- You get too see sports stars daily as they will be coming in and out of the store.
- When I first started it was great and for most people it is the same, first 3 months seem great and then you realize it's really not. The size of the company and you're getting a poor pay. The recruitment team when I joined were great and had a great team, now the team don't seem to be good judges of people and hire some people who are terrible at the job even after training.

It was a very good experience and i learned a lot but there were some problems.
I have a huge passion for the Nike brand and getting that job was one of the highlights of my year. Working at Nike was a very good experience and I learned a lot but there were some problems I faced when working there. I was supposed to have a review after every month in order to track my progress. These reviews were never done and as a result i was not made aware of the things I needed to do in order to improve and how to do these things. At the end of my 3 month probation I was let go because "It would take too much work for me to improve" because I didn't get any online feedback from customers which is a bit unfair because most customers disregard the reviews because they either don't remember or cant be bothered writing the online feedback . Many customers complimented me, said i was very helpful and that they would give me a review but never did Nike hired me knowing I was young and it was my first job. It disappointed me that a huge company like Nike did not think it was important to invest in their staff and help them improve instead of just letting people go and looking for something better. As I stated before my managers never sat down and did the monthly reviews with me so i was completely unaware of things I needed to improve on and what i was doing well. If these reviews were done I believe I would have been able to learn new ways to persuade customers to give me online feedback. Apart from this every one of my co workers were very welcoming and very helpful whe

ConsThe amount of stores was to much for one person.
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.

Having worked at Nike for 2 years now i have gained a lot of experience and have experienced every kind of customer that could possibly walk into a retail store, being such a popular store there is no average genre of people that come into this store in West Brom. My typical day at work would consist of either, working on the till, being the face of the store, greeting customers, selling their desired items, stock co-ordinating, handling cash, processing stock (e.g pricing, hanging, counting, tagging ect.) arranging footwear into the correct order so that its easier for the customers to shop and staying on top of standards. I have learn't a lot about customer service, how to handle customers according to their desires or needs, and how to present myself in those situations. also learning how to stay concentrated and get the task done as quick as possible as been a clearance store there is a lot to stay on top of and a lot to be done throughout the day. I get on so well with my co-workers its like we are a little family, with banter and also being proffesional when need be.The hardest part of the job would be trying to get everything done within one day, and one shift seeing as there is so much to get through, its a busy store. the most enjoyable part of my job, is being able to represent a large brand such as Nike and knowing that there is so many opportunities when working for such a company as this.
A typical day at work would include a meeting 5-10 minutes prior to starting the shift about targets, KPI's and general feed back within previous working days and any news coming up within the company.
While working within Nike I have learned about high quality customer service, how to manage and lead groups of people, how to work within a team to solve issues/work on particular projects e.g visual merchandising.
Management and co-workers are friendly, fun and professional at the same time. The store maintains a good balance between being professional along with making the store a fun and friendly environment to work in.
Hardest part of working within Nike would be working under pressure when the store gets excessively busy and when we have limited staff on hand. Even when under pressure I am successful at staying clam and tackle all obstacles that arise.
Most enjoyable part of the job would be making customers happy. When customers are overly thankful for the service they have received.

Security Officer- Nike Global Security, Absolutely Toxic Work Environment
Nike Global Security has the distinction of being the most dysfunctional and toxic department I have ever worked at. The department has a long term deeply embedded obsession over the most unimportant minutiae while real security issues are ignored or not even recognized.
Management which refers to itself as “The Leadership” is made up almost entirely of individuals with little professional background or distinction who were some of the lowest performers as officers. There are a few bright exceptions but not enough to change the dynamic. If you show concern for your staff, report supervisors for abuse, or do anything to give “The Leadership” any reason to question your absolute loyalty your career potential is done forever at Nike.
There is no seniority system which means you can never obtain a better schedule of your choosing even if you have been there 20 years. Brand new employees are often given prime shifts with weekends off while long term employees with excellent work records get mid-week days off on graveyard. Your shift will change about once a year unless you are on “The Leadership” good guy list then you might get to keep your shift for a decade or more.

50/50, and here’s why based on pay, culture, and benefits.
Overall rating, 5 stars for the company, 1 star for my store. As is the case with many places, the company is a great company but the store falls short of trickling company values and attributes down, so the potential experience falls short.
To be fair, Nike does pay it’s associates more than most retailers. And on top of that they offer full benefits and basically uncapped pto accrual. After 200 hours, you have to use some but you still accrue more pto while you’re out on pto. Not too bad. You also get Christmas, Thanksgiving, and June 19th as paid holidays off. All other holidays you either get an extra day off during the week the holiday falls in and a paid day or you can work on the holiday and get the paid holiday (8hours) + time and a half for the hours actually worked. More than generous.
My gripe is that they don’t compensate managers fairly based on experience, responsibilities, or tenure. The communication is sub par between management, there’s more talk about work and less actual work to lessen the workload. The sky is always falling and no one seems to consider in the moment of panic that this is retail, the job is never “done” and that’s just part of the job description. Instead of leading with positivity and fostering excitement about teamwork and what can be accomplished and then accomplishing it, it’s sighing and overreacting to the tasks that haven’t been completed. The team feels all of that. The at
A typical day involved generating daily lesson plans for the children, working with a team of four other co teachers in a classroom setting with a predictable schedule. The morning consisted of dropping the children off to the classroom where three tables were setup to enhance cognitive, fine motor, and mathematical thinking skills, the classroom was also available for quieter activities like reading or drawing and a climber for gross motor exploration. Followed by morning snack and recess. After recess the children would come in for whole group circle time where academic curriculum was discussed, songs were song and group readings and discussions occurred. Then small group activities were available for exploration and learning goals. Children were then given the opportunity to explore the campus on a walk, do a art activity or work in small reading and writing group which was designated by learning needs. Then lunch and nap would occur, during nap the teaching met to generate daily power point notes about the day, team meetings, lesson plan development, time schedules and classroom needs were attended to. After wake up quite activities and sensory activities were offered followed by afternoon snack, recess and pick ups.
Working in a team of four taught me to be collaborative and flexible in my teaching. I learned how to generate lessons based on what we saw the children interests were as well as how to create lessons using all of our observations and assessments. I also

Lots of opportunity to learn and a fun campus for getting out of the office, but definitely a start up environment
The Nike campus has a super appealing campus and physical work environment that the company has spent a lot of money investing in and is constantly under construction, which is also a negative, but they are forward thinking for their employees. Nike has several cafeterias and lots of options for meeting rooms and really allow you to explore around the campus when you need some time from your desk or you need to impress a client.
Nike also goes pretty far for training and entertaining its employees with large, social and collaborative workshops, or pop-up shops on the main campus, or food carts and "farmers markets" from local businesses from Portland that you normally don't have access to in Beaverton. More importantly, the workshops are very impressive and you have a lot of opportunity to grow your network, career, and knowledge, which was probably my favorite aspect of working at Nike.
Unfortunately, Nike is very much a startup culture for its size and age so it tends to latch on to an idea and go all in on this idea. This means that a lot of money and people are thrown at this idea and everything else is cut and thrown away. Nike has a pretty bad reputation around town and locals for how they treat employees, especially contractors and temporary employees, and it can be very, very difficult to get a full time position at Nike. Once you get a full time position, you end up taking a pretty serious pay cut anyways. Second, Nike teams are very siloed and management is, o

I will preface this by saying I am part of the healthiest team I've ever been on. I enjoy working with everyone there, and the secret is everyone gives their all. Not everyone has this experience at Nike, unfortunately. Like any company, it's the managers who make it! I'm proud to say I've had really good ones.
A typical day at work for me involves talking to all sorts of different people, a ton of meetings, and delegating work to over-worked people. I make plans and roll them out to my team. I enjoy leading them -- we're a low-key bunch, which is necessary for the work we're doing.
Many of us are in different time zones and nations, which is both fun and hard on the sleep schedule. Personally, I think it is rad to talk to people in India at 7am, Nederlands at 10am, and then China at 8pm. (Not all in one day for me; it is a super rare occurrence.). As a global organization, we all need to compensate for time-zones, and I know other people have much heavier schedules than me. It ultimately depends on your responsibilities.
People are very polite and I think that my greater department places a big emphasis on conduct, which I've come to appreciate, because it teaches and supports better ways of being. When leadership expects more of you and exhibits the same behaviors, it's very admirable.

Mine was a group of 11 people. We had several ice breaker activities (getting ourselves into alphabetical order of the food we had the previous day ) and then we watched a short clip about Nike. We got asked small questions about the history of Nike (when it was founded, the first shoe etc.) And then we got put into 4 groups, each given a different customer to serve. We got 20 minutes to use the Nike app to formulate the product(s) we were going to sell to the customer and then we presented it to the rest of the group. Overall it was really enjoyable and ended up being almost 3 hours long but time went by so fast.

When I joined the interview was great and very fun. It was a big group interview of around 70 people. They put you into groups to see how you worked in groups and to see what you would be like in big teams. Just be yourself and you will be fine, show that you love sports and that you are a confident (not cocky) person. When I joined Jessica was the head of recruitment and really understood the people and the job role and the staff she was bringing in at the time was all great, when she left the place did sort of lose it's touch and the staff were really going downhill from then.
