I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Nordstrom seems to really value their employees. Of course if you mess up, they will not hesitate to get rid of you, so don't be shocked if this happens.

Cons

Because it is a fashion specialty store you will be working with some people that seem to only be hired for their appearance and bubbly demeanor than their actual content and intelligence.

    I worked at Nordstrom full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Teamwork (everyone is expected to be collaborative and supportive of their peers)
    - Company Culture (older company that values loyalty and emphasizes a healthy work-life balance.)
    - The company's emphasis on customer relations. (its great to work for a company you believe in; especially one that values its customers dearly)
    -The People (incredibly well qualified, highly professional staff)
    -

    Cons

    -Traditional company (not a lot of room for change. they like the way they do things and keep to that motto)
    -Pay (if you're an entry-mid level employee their salaries aren't too competitive)
    -Growth opportunities (because it is such a large and traditional company, they really value loyalty, and it seems that you really have to spend a lot of time at the company before being considered for promotion)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more entry level employees so those with experience have a chance to take on higher-level projects.

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities for growth. Everyone supports you and knows your name. The store's sales seem like a group effort, as well as the department's sales. The more effort and work you put into the job the more success you will see.

    Cons

    sometimes business is slow (as is in any retail setting)
    hours may not be as flexible in a sales associate position
    Competition (maybe) - although I think competition is healthy things can get a little intense among sales people ie stealing sales, etc
