Pros

Someone without a college degree can work here..Great clothes and for the most part the people you work with are awesome..

Cons

They set commissions so high it is almost impossible to make any money..Upper management would rather hire new young girls than keep the talented seasoned ones..Horrific pressure every day for numbers..Nordstrom now has the attitude that as long as you give good customer service and show up and do your numbers they will keep you on, they really do not care that you are not making any money.. girls right out of highschool are there to replace you...

Advice to Management

More realistic goals for commissions, more training/ investment for the ones that are already with you...

    Pros

    commission based, anniversary sale, employee discount, reasonable hours compared to the real world

    Cons

    company does not treat you as well as they should, workers get last pick of anniversary sale, yet they dangle merchandise in your face
    people were not suited for college grads/students

    Advice to Management

    Hire higher end, more well educated individuals for higher end departments. No one wants to buy a $300 blouse from someone who doesn't look like they can spell a multi-syllabic word.
