One year freeze on wages, no chance on getting a raise for a year.

I have been working at Nordstrom

Pros

Benefits and discounts are nice. Its pretty easy to transfer. I got promoted pretty fast.

Cons

They put a freeze on wages for the next year that is company wide. As a cook I am looked down upon by sales department. You have to deal with a lot of arrogant rich people. People that have no experience restaurant are the senior management so they have no idea what they are talking about and think they are judges on top chef. They senior management use negative reinforcement on the lower management and it trickles down to the employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

That negative reinforcement dose not work. That you need to think of employs as an investment. That when you promote someone you should give them a raise too.

    Pros

    Chance to build close coworker relationships and discount. The job is very close knot. Coworkers often become great friends or more and sometimes rally against management.

    Cons

    Returns, Returns, Returns, Returns, Returns. The return policy makes absolutely no sense. You will loose more money than you make with such return policy. Fights and heated arguements break out strictly off of returns with customers. There should be no way on this earth that you should be able to return a pair of shoes you wore 10 years ago. Customers come first but there should be a limit to this rule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rally with other managers to give suggestions for more sales. Senior management also needs to lower their heads a tad bit. They walk around like kings and queens as if they work on the new Obama team. Some managers go back to sales associates because they dont make enough money.

    Pros

    The discount is 20% which is nice, yet not enough to make huge dent. you end up spending your whole pay check there. At least the girls I worked around did!

    Cons

    catty girls, life must be fashioned obsessed to be current and successful, the return policy is a joke!! All the money you make is from commission and once the item is returned you make nothing. AND because of the liberal return policy, most people buy thinggs, wear them, and return

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to be more accessible and lose the air of "greater than thou". They play favorites and are hard to speak with.
