I worked at Nordstrom part-time for less than a year

Pros

You always get to meet new people who come into the store. There are a lot of employees which makes working at such a large company nicer because you get to know people in different departments.

Cons

The hours are long. It is really hard to have a flexible schedule. During sales you are working ridiculous hours. You are never allowed to sit.

    Very good summer retail job

    I worked at Nordstrom full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    For a summer job, I was very pleased with working at Nordstrom. They were very accommodating of my needs as far as my timeframe. I was happy that I was able to work full-time and their compensation is pretty competitive. Working for commission meant that I was in control of how much money I made. Also, the job was far more interesting and engaging than other retail positions at other companies.

    Cons

    Some managers were incompetent and blamed the problems on the employees instead of fixing things themselves. They claim that they only promote from within but mobility is not as easy as it sounds.
