    I worked at Nordstrom part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Awesome pays and wonderful benefits. It was a fun job that went by fast. It is a great job to have on resume and it also helps boost confidence.

    Cons

    Retail hours are horrible. Worked long days and closing was never fun. It is a very fast pace environment that promotes competition.

    Pros

    my co-workers
    20 % discount
    the hours

    Cons

    RETURNS! Especially in handbags. My manager told me that the returns are always high in their department. Some days I am working to be positive. I would get 3,000 in returns in one day and have to make it up. People return purses that are used and smell like cigarettes. We will take it back no matter what

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have your return policy affect our conmission for only a couple months not a year. People will return their used purse after 11 months and 28 days and it affects our commission.
