    Former Employee - Product Specialist in Mission Viejo, CA
    Former Employee - Product Specialist in Mission Viejo, CA

    I worked at Nordstrom full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount (20% or 33% for managers and high volume sales people), vacation time (although its only ok to take it in select months April, October and January) , holiday pay (select holidays)

    Cons

    No flexibility in scheduling, no time off during sales, events (that happen about every 2 weeks) or holidays (Memorial day, all of July, November and December). Horrible working conditions. Assistant manager is rude and unprofessional. HR is not there for employees. Store manager is cheap, never have live music, live flowers, supplies in employee lounge and they don't turn on the AC until after 9:45am even in the dead of summer. Sales per hour goals are ridiculous. Lot of drama on the sales floor. Oh and if you plan on moving up in the company, get ready to feast on the kool-aid and be willing to move to whatever shithole (sometimes across country) they want to send you to or all future doors are closed!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a PROFESSIONAL. Make sure your assistants are being PROFESSIONAL. It is considered harassment to insult, demean or belittle your employees.
