Pros

You have the ability to make as much as you want. Everything is commission based, and during seasonal peaks paychecks can be HUGE. Typically managers are flexible and there is tons of room for internal promotion within the company.

Cons

If you do not make your sales goals, you can get fired. There is not really a ton of job security if you are not willing to work for it. During seasonal peaks, expect to work long hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reach out to employees more. They may not always be willing to discuss their gripes about their manager with you.

    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 have been working at Nordstrom part-time (less than an year)

    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.
