I loved working at Nordstrom

Commissioned Sales Associate (Former Employee) Pleasanton, CA

ProsEmployee discount; working with the customers. Nordstrom pays commission and I earned a lot more than I thought I could in retail. There is room for advancement. Nordstrom is very good at providing motivation to do your best. Nordstrom is a great company to work for.

ConsThe hours are hard because it is evenings and weekends. When customers return items you sold them, that commission gets docked from your pay. It's too easy to spend your own money on the clothes. It can be competitive because it's commission.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide your department managers with management training. If it's possible, try and rotate weekends off to help with work/life balance. Most families are home on the weekends and that was the reason I had to leave, because it was too hard to see my family.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
