Approves of CEO

I worked at Nordstrom full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great pay and salaries. Solid benefits, 401K match and profit sharing. Opportunity to grow as far as you want with ample support and great mentors.

Cons

Must be a self starter. Can not, should not rely on others to walk you through your new position in order to learn. Can take over your life and demand way more than the 40 hour work week.

Advice to Management

Set clear expectations and examples on how to get there. Keep the employee benefits as a top priority.

    A bit of a shark tank, but rewarding none the less.

    I worked at Nordstrom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, schedule flexibility, company built on inverted pyramid, discounts. Also, Blake Nordstrom himself came to announce that our store was closing. I don't know of any other CEO of a company that would do that.

    Cons

    The environment is competitive and can get extremely sharky and some people did not know how to act professionally in this environment.
