For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Please use email to follow-up with our team, as it is the fastest and most consistent way to reach us. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Candidates who have shown clear promotion history in the past employment is nearly always impressive. Candidates who have explored a bit in their careers, tried interesting and unusual avenues. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: We need a clear resume that shows employment history in a readable manner, that shows progression of that career in an easily readable way. Finalists will need to complete a legal application form, background and drug screen for the safety of all of our employees. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Failure to pass background, referencing or drug screen are the most common causes of failure for what appeared to be solid candidates at the start. Being late, repeated rescheduling, constant calls despite being given clear updates and timelines will waste the time of our hiring team and will get a candidate disqualified. Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

When most people think of Nike, they think of shoes, retail stores, and, of course, athletes. That's all true, but there's more. Behind Nike's walls, you'll find the doers and thinkers who design, create, and innovate every day. There are also data scientists who discover and leverage athlete insights to create the future of sport.

You might be surprised to learn about the impact you can have in Data & Analytics at Nike versus at a major tech giant.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the interview situation one of our viewers, Remi submitted. He was in an interview and was asked the question: How many cows are there in Canada right now? - What a weird question but this is a technique that some hiring managers are using these days.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet. The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?
