    I worked at HauteLook full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nordstrom owned, great benefits, great working environment. Everyone works hard and the company is always sponsoring fun activities to balance out the fast paced work. They promote growth opportunity within the company and want to help you grow with the company.

    Cons

    Poor communication between the different departments. Although every dept constantly works with one another, there is a sense of hierarchy. One dept thinking they are priority than the other which often cause tension. There is also long hours especially Fridays or before holidays, which can be understandable but just mentioning as a heads up.

    Pros

    Great office space, good benefits and direct management was great as well. They have work from home positions for customer service representatives which is a major plus.

    Cons

    Pay was low and it wasn't worth driving to DTLA to to a simple customer service job. I ended up working from home.

    Pros

    They're really great on keeping employees involved with the company. They host happy hours for staff, bring in bagels every 1st of the month, have quarterly all-staff meetings with food, games and prizes, and the company is growing pretty fast now that they are apart of the Nordstrom family.

    Cons

    Too many kinks in the chain. They hire all entry-levels which causes way too many discrepancies. They are slaves to the brands they sale..meaning that OTS's can get sent whenever they feel like it, new style can be added during a sale and etc...causing the workers to be stressed and highly annoyed ALL the time! Also the money they make with the salary they dish out does not add up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do it! If you want to be able to learn as you go, this is definitely the place because no one knows what they're really doing anyway.
