I worked at Nordstrom part-time for 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.

    I worked at Nordstrom full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I got a paycheck every two weeks

    Cons

    I was treated like a slave, verbally abused, and taken advantage of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay close attention to the employees and how they are being treated. If you see a large number of employees being let go or stepping down in one dept take notice of the leader of that dept because thats where the problem is. Poor management!

    Pros

    Beautiful people get promoted quickly.

    Cons

    Company is very clickish, and failure to join a click can lead to you being stagnant. Managers are young and promote friends before hard workers. Department Managers often mistreat the employees in order to make themselves look better to uppe level management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote employees based on skills and not their style.
