    I worked at Nordstrom full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get to meet some great people and learn a lot. You get discounts on the clothing, in the restaurant and in the coffee shop. The coffee is GREAT. The environment is fun and positive, for the most part. Also, if you remember to enroll, good benefits.

    Cons

    Unless you're in sales, you pretty much get zero incentives or bonuses, but you've got as many, if not more goals. In the position I was in, to move up you must be willing to move. I noticed a lot of favoritism, but that can come with any company. If you get a good manager, you'll really enjoy your work. Be prepared to work weekends and evenings!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize strengths in all departments, not just sales and be willing to work with people who may be stronger in some areas more than others.
