I worked at Nordstrom full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great pay, decent amount of hours, plenty of opportunities to move up in your career.

Cons

A lot of jobs are based on commission and you are somewhat expected to bring your own clientele into the workforce. It's pretty hard to do so at the age of 19 like I had to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help your current employees improve their tactics of driving customers into the department.

    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is great for a college student! Breaks are very generous-you can take an hour! Also, the discount is amazing.

    Cons

    It's exhausting and hard work. Make sure your manager likes you, otherwise they will not treat you fairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put yourself in our shoes. If a manager obviously isn't treating an employee fairly, enact consequences.
