Pros

The discounts at all Nordstrom stores, including Nordstrom rack is very nice. Your experience will depend on your manager and your ability to get a long with others.

Cons

Sometimes your manager isn't great, but if you try your hardest to please them, they'll probably like you.

    Pros

    If you sell well, you'll be paid well.

    Cons

    Selfish selfish selfish. People used to be the priority here but now that sales have improved, and online sales have increased due to in store web fulfillment, sales come first. The"inverted pyramid" used to be a model for how things should run-- customers at the top, then employees, followed by executives etc. Does anybody even remember this concept? The employee is pretty much forgotten about-- they used to care but no longer. It's pretty sad. Oh, and management over 40 will pretty much be demoted because of wanting to earn the younger customers business by having young management. I could go on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people more. Develop and train better leadership. Don't kick the experienced (I.e. older management) to the curb...those experienced in the culture have to train the future.

    Pros

    Great product, great people. Very friendly environment.

    Cons

    Management roles require extensive dedication in several area and although you put all your effort forth, sometimes it does not pay off in the end. The commission based salary does not make up for the work that was done while not on the sales floor.
