    I worked at Nordstrom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When I worked there you could learn a lot, and make a lot, if you know how to sell. It could get competitive, but if you have a great manager to learn from they will set the tone. You get out what you put in.

    Cons

    The company seems to be changing from what I see, it's less about the best customer interaction and more money driven than ever. If you aren't a top performer, and or young, you're not what they want. That breeds a very toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what this company was founded on, and don't invest in slimy, shark associates. They are natural sellers but turning them into managers doesn't mean they can teach that to others.

    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Job security, promote from within, opporuntity to live anywhere via transfer or promotion, good work experience, strong company culture, diverse workforce, diverse customer base, benefits and 401K package

    Cons

    Long hours/ work most weekends, salaried workers tend to work 50-60 hour weeks and often 6 days a week when requirement is only 43 hour weeks, part of salary is based on a sales per hour expectation that can sometimes be hard to meet when focused on activities that support and grow the business, especially when focusing on managing and developing a strong team

    Advice to Management

    Support a better work/life balance or higher pay for department managers
