    Former Assistant manager in Thousand Oaks, California

    Great health benefits, dental, car loans, and much more for full time employees. Just have to maintain the required hours

    Comprehensive package. It covered many many things. The only downfall is that HR really doesn't help you with exploring it. The HR dept. at Nordstrom is the worst

    Current Divisional Manager in Saint Louis, Missouri

    PTO is also used for sick days

    You need an average of 130 hours over the first 6 months. So basically you have to be full time and will not receive any benefits for the first 6 months. You do get a 4% 401k match which is great.

    PTO was good and it felt like I gained it quickly. The company is (mostly) good about giving time off. The employee discount isn't good. It was not a good package. I did not use their benefits for that reason. I only used their 401k and when I left the company after two years, I withdrew my money because not enough accrued to leave it in.

    The benefits sound great when you're at your orientation, but what they don't tell you or explain is that you have to work a certain amount of hours in order to maintain that eligibility per pay period. This is an issue when you work at a slow paced store where you get sent home so often like I was. I couldn't even cancel my insurance or anything that had to do with it (like the amount being taken out of my paycheck to pay for it). It's a waste. Not worth the stress or hours to work at this place.

    They only have benefit eligibility available twice a year so if you miss the date you don't have insurance for 6 months
