Getting into Nike Employee store

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Okay, I've been looking for a job and I've been thinking about applying at my local Nike Store or factory store in the Dallas TX area. They're all good stores but I've narrowed my reasoning down to one thing, would this make me able to access the employee store in Oregon? Because I will be willing to vacation out there just to shop in that store. If not then I might as well work at house of hoops. If you know anything please let me know. Thanks.

Think you gotta be a corporate employee in order to get access to it.

Negative. Any Nike employee can have access to that store, as well as anyone on their family list.

Any Nike employee is allowed, including vendors and subsidiaries, including Converse, Hurley, etc. The prices are around 45% off for clothes and gear, 40% for shoes. Going there on Tuesday! smokin.gif

Either one is fine. But when it's busy, employee entrance is faster. My friends sister brought me in to through the employee entrance as her guest. Man, I need to fly out there soon. LMK if there's any good stuff there. Flying to seattle in 2 weeks & try to drive down there, need my friends sis to hook me up lol

Thanks for the info. I'll be going there for the first time over Easter weekend

ES is not that great really, and definitely NOT worth a trip out there just for that. If you already have swoosh online 40% off, its not great when its just 10% more off. That was my experience.

If you live more than 30 minutes from the ES, it probably makes more sense to buy on Swoosh. Sometimes the ES will have things that aren't discounted on Swoosh, which in that case, the ES is pretty awesome.

Visited the ES earlier today. Black badge employees and members listed as family can enter through the employee entrance and utilize the specific checkout registers to avoid the long visitor lines. A good amount of tech fleece available. Somewhat disappointed that they didn't stock the white/silver Jordan V.

Final verdict - if you're visiting in the Portland area, check it out. Don't book a flight if you're not local just to go to ES.

I'm taking a trip out to Portland, Oregon during Nov. 13th - 16th. To get into the Nike ES, do I have to know a Nike Employee in order to get in? Or is there an entrance for visitors? If not, can anyone kindly let me know how I can get an ES pass? It's not really for me, but for a friend's birthday and it would be a nice present. Thanks in advance! Please PM me for details and such.

You'll need to know an employee that's willing to give you 2 passes in your case since you want one and another for your friend.

From what I heard, employees only have 5 to give out per year.

I went there last month and the ES is very overwhelming at first. You really do feel like a kid in a chocolate factory. I ended up copping so much stuff for friends and family, I ended up shipping it back home. Luckily, I live in the Bay Area and 50lbs worth of stuff shipped via UPS was not cringe worthy.

The fact that there's no tax in Oregon helps a lot.
