I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (more than an year)

Pros

With commission anyone can make their own pay check, there is money to be made at Nordstrom. The brothers that run the company are super down to earth and yes they do travel around a good amount and take time to meet their employees - even the sales people.

Overall Nordstrom is a fun company to work for, and while technically it is retail, it does not feel like retail. It's fun and makes you challenge yourself everyday.

Cons

Pay varies on commission (which is great!) but month total pay varies depending on the time of the year, so you have to budget to consider the few months that may be slow. Other Con, while it doesn't feel like a retail job, the hours are still retail hours and around the Holidays that can be hard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You work to SUPPORT and MOTIVATE your salespeople.... they drive your business. Do not forget that.

    Pros

    Working for Nordstrom is great you build a extensive resume. The opportunity to grow within the company is outstanding.

    Cons

    The return policy. Items that get return are usually 6month to 7 years old. This is frustrating to a sales person that puts their everything in providing excellent customer to have the commission taken away

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training to staff regarding how handle fraudulent customers

    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    commission based salary, infinite amount of money you can make. Benefits if working 40+ hours a week. 20% or 33% discount on full line and rack purchases. Room for internal growth. When interested in growing you, they will put you into development programs.

    Cons

    cutthroat sales associates at times. Not a lazy place to work. Your feet kill you as a sales associate! Not a very good work/ real ife balance. You eat, sleep, breathe nordstrom while you work there.
