Pros

great potential for company growth
only promotes from within
good benefit package

Cons

it's retail...so say goodbye to any family time during the holidays
all managers have different work ethics so make sure you don't end up in the wrong manager's hands
do not get paid as much as assistant managers should

    Great training but not many opportunities to move up

    I worked at Nordstrom part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing training program and materials, decent entry-level pay. This is a great company to work for. They give you the tools you need to succeed in the job you were hired for.

    Cons

    Takes forever to move up in the company, bad hours (but you'll find that in any retail job). I did not see much of a future here. It would have been a good place to be if I were a salesman (depending on the department) because you get commission. However, not the greatest place to be for a creative person, hoping to move into a more creative career. Also, working in the department I worked in was mind-numbingly boring. But that is to no fault of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything is run very efficiently as well, so keep up the good work. I would like to see you nurture the talent that students with degrees in fashion have.

    Pros

    Learn about buying process and great for networking.

    Cons

    Repetitive, not a lot of room for growth with the company. Pay isn't great, but benefits are awesome!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to need for growth and help your OA move down the pyramid.
