I have been working at Nordstrom full-time for less than a year

Pros

* Excellent on-boarding learning (prior to on-floor selling),
* 95% of employees across the organization are helpful, hopeful and honest...rare in a public company
* Cross selling is encouraged!
* Technology (iPhone, email, text) approach to clienteling...smart
* Monthly catalog great opportunity to connect with clients

Cons

* Health coverage benefit needs to be explained a few times...I have never had to actively record my working hours... to be sure that I was entitled to insurance.Said another way, if my clocking in was less than a full time employee (every two weeks), I was found ineligible for insurance benefits....
* Fashion merchandising point of view redundant- across all departments

Advice to ManagementAdvice

What happened with the Fall 2012 Fashion catalog (blue coat on cover)? Not inspiring or cohesive- per my clients

    Pros

    They train you in customer service and it helps when looking for jobs after you leave because they know you have great customer service skills.

    Cons

    If you work part time it takes twice as long to get a pay raise. Which sucks, I would rather have it be based on merit because people who are ranked below you make more money than you do.
