Great workplace

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fun workplace. Able to move up the ladder in management. If you’re a student, need a part time job or you’re someone who love retail sales, then I recommend this is a good role for you.

Fun place to work for college students

Fun place to work for college students. Easy job if you can't do this job well then you need to go to school and probably work as a sanitary engineer to be honest.

Great workplace, Unprofessional at times

Very good work place and extremely open and friendly coworkers. Managers are all very supportive and flexible. Lacks professional in the work place and often feels like you’re out casually instead of working. Management isn’t strict enough at time for situations that need a more steady hand, lets staff influence decisions too much. Aside from that very good workplace, busy days keep you very busy, everybody is extremely nice and being around the Nike culture is a unique experience. Product knowledge is a huge part of working there and is an amazing benefit is you enjoy sneaker and athletic wear culture. Always supportive and understanding in tough situations and doesn’t harshly judge personal hardships like other companies. Overall I would recommend as it is very good for a retail job and offers lots of opportunities to grow as an individual.

Pros

Great staff, Understanding management, Great brand empowerment

Cons

Workplace ends up getting unprofessional too much at times, Gossip is rampant, Hard to get any raises

Productive/Face Paced

A typical day at work involves assisting customers on a regular timed basis. Being able to get along with staff and being able to adapt to fast paced environment. Management is adamant on boosting sales to achieve daily target.The challenging part of the job is that you are always on your feet and on the go, with excepts to your downtime (lunch break).The most enjoyable part of the job is employee discounts and building meaningful relationships with customers as well as your co workers.

It's alright

The head company Fox Group, does not compensate it's employees as much as they should. Sales associates would sell tens of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise in a month and would only be rewarded with 1% of that as commission. They took this option away after Covid and allow the top performers in each store to receive 1.5% commission only if they are a top 10 associate and cover a minimum number of hours per pay period.

Pros

Chill work life/ not too serious

Cons

Pay

Not great

Will bleed you dry, too much micromanagement. Management is creepy and will monitor you for taking bathroom breaks even if you have a personal emergency (menstruation etc.). HR does not listen and only prioritizes the store higher-ups. Creepy and cult-like behaviour.

Pros

Staff discount (only benefit really but uniform is not free)

Cons

Pre-determined breaks, micromanaged, racism, sexism etc.

Summary

A good experience working at Nike. But the management team is overpowering, overbearing. Taking part in countless acts of micromanagement and favouritism. They like to tell you you can advance in the company but our best worker worked for Nike for 8+ years and it took around 5 to even get a small promotion. As well as people who didn’t do anything at all who were favourites got promotions within their first few years. Overall a good place to work but you need to be carful when looking for a career here.

Great people and fun work environment

Working at Nike was a great experience as the people, pay rate, and employee discounts are amazing. The hardest part of the job was being micro-managed and nit-picked, even when store was dead and weren't allowed to talk to each other.

Pros

Good pay rate and diverse work culture

Cons

Management

Resourceful

Value your mental health. It is the most important thing. Lots of things learned, friendships made, saw various management changes. It is important to stand up for yourself.

Fun place to work

Working at Nike is a fun experience, you learn more about the company as you go. Staff is welcoming and push you to succeed. Unfortunately there is a high turnover due to high sales demands. Other than that, pay could be increased a little more for BOH staff as shipment can be tedious at times.

Pros

Discount/welcoming fun community

Cons

Shipment hours may vary/high turnover

Relaxed workplace, good for first job

Management was not very good, they switched around a lot and did not want to offer anyone more than they needed to. Fairly relaxed, good job for someone just starting out.

Nike Yorkdale

I hated working there for many reasons the pay is minimum wage with extremely high expectations. the scheduling is terrible they don’t give you much flexibility with your personal life. The management is terrible they people who micromanage everyone and do nothing themselves. It’s a very toxic work for environment the worst job I ever had.

Pros

co workers are amazing and the discount.

Cons

basically everything worst job I ever had.

Toxic environment where temps do all the work.

At the start of every shift they tell the workers what our productivity numbers were from the previous shift. Sometimes they give us pizza or candy. They have free coffee and free nike product giveaways. Most of the giveaways are damaged product that they can't sell.
