Pros

Great training in the retail industry and customer service, but manager and co-workers are a bit hit or miss.

Cons

Disillusionment on the glamorous and fun side of retail. Pushes too hard for the ideal situation when that never really happens

Advice to Management

Be more realistic and offer better opportunities for growth and development

    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...

  2. Great Company - not good pay for all the hard work!
