    Pros

    Much room for career advancement if you're willing to stick it out, HR dept if there are any issues, employee discount is not too bad

    Cons

    Commission environment is difficult considering Nordstrom return policy, returns hit the employee for up to a year. Sometimes and often you cannot control the costumers abuse of the return policy
