    I have been working at Nordstrom

    Pros

    Exactly as title states; the commission rate is extremely rewarding and especially in retail.

    Cons

    In the end, it is retail.

    Advice to Management

    Although the "use best judgement" foundation for service is good, some of the more emphasized techniques are somewhat cheesy and often times turn off potential customers.

    Pros

    pay was great
    made my own schedule
    good co workers
    hour lunch
    opportunity to advance..IF you are a favorite.
    thats about it.

    Cons

    management changes way too often to feel supported in your business
    sales are more important than the customer
    absolutely no work life balance - you can take time off in february...IF it doesn't effect your business and if you take time another month, you can expect to be lectured about how inconvenient it is, even for family emergencies.
    Management will say one thing, then do another...ie: "You sell a clarisonic, you can win a flee at 3 card (which means you can leave at 3pm if you opened instead of 5)" and then when you try to use it "we took those away because nobody had a physical card" (WHICH THEY NEVER HANDED OUT EVEN WHEN YOU ASKED FOR IT MULTIPLE TIMES)
