I thought that I had landed my dream job. This job would be my swan song. However, what you must be careful about is that NIKE is a publicly traded company with a global brand and their goals/objectives are driven by quarterly results. Perform or get out of their way. Beautiful NIKE campus in Beaverton and the bulk of the workforce is young and aggressive which is to be expected with a company in the DOW 30 market index.

Pros and Cons
Very focused on taking care of their "athletes" and the recognition that everyone can be fit.
Driven by their quarterly results and every "athlete" MUST contribute.

I gave Nike my all. I was even named, The Hardest Working Woman in Nike!!! In the end, they left me with 3 bulging discs, half of a shoulder, and no worker's compensation. They did not try to find me a place to work with in the facility. Just threw me out. I was back on welfare due to all the needles therapy and Dr's appointments. The campus nurse was the only one that makes the managers listen and put me on light duty. The day i got hurt, she was on leave. Their lawyers called it a preexisting condition. They use you and get rid of you. Period

Pros and Cons
Benefits and awards
Other states pay more for the same position, you have to train your managers without extra pay

This was a job with Nike through 24-7 InTouch. They were extremely understaffed and the hours are always there for overtime, but your schedule would not allow for any home life. 10pm one night and 5am the next day was common and morale was very low. Management was a huge issue and recognition for negative was #1 while recognition for positive was somewhere on their list, but they were in no hurry to find it. Some did well, others did not, I just didn't want a part of the changing leadership style, so I quit.

Pros and Cons
Cool free nike stuff and a discount

I loved working at Nike. Even though at the time I was juggling school and work which made things a little difficult. Other than that it was such a blessing to be a part of Nike and I wish I could have stayed so that I could make a graphic design career out of Nike. I know for a fact that I would have been the best employee and partner. My skills are unmatched

Pros and Cons
Great management. Growth opportunities. Benefits
Set schedule. Wouldn’t recommend working and going to school at the same time. That was my downfall

NIKE has lost it's way. It used to be a very creative company with emphasis on sports and fitness, ie, the athlete. NIKE now is hyper focused on social justice and not offending anyone, both internally and externally.

Pros and Cons
Good people.

Nike has potential to be greater then greater but it lacks professionalism . Managers should not just be able to go around and fire permit or temp employees with out an explanation as to why . Temps being treated unfairly because they’re not permit is very unfair . All employees should be treated equally fair . Also Nike permit and temp employees bag should be checked while walking out of the facility !

Pros and Cons
You get weekends off
Bad management , favoritism , not temp friendly , short breaks
