Proud to have worked there, but they were not flexible toward a quality of life outside of work.

Pros

Brand recognition. Everyone loves Nordstrom.

Cons

Very competitive atmosphere that tends to lend employees' to gravitate toward cliques that are not welcoming to newcomers.

Advice to Management

Do not promise things you can't deliver just to get someone hired. For instance, I was promised flexibility to go back to school. Yet come the time to return, my department manager was not willing to give a set schedule for me to make it to class.

    Pros

    Nordstrom is known for their amazing customer service. It's easy to know what to do because we are just told to take care of the customer.

    Cons

    Sales can be high pressure. If you want to move up you have to be mobile. This could be a pro for some people. They really take care of you when they move you.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.

  2. Great Place to Work

    Pros

    Great environment to work in with very supportive managers. An excellent place to launch a career in the fashion and/or retail field. Overall a really nice place to work!

    Cons

    The hours on the retail store side are irregular, and the work is surprisingly tiring. However that's to be expected with any retail job and you know that when you accept.
