    Former Employee - Clinique Counter Manager

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Politics. Everyone cares more about themselves. They rarely congratulate you for a job well done they jump to the next day. The more you do the more they expect. It's a recipe for disaster. I would recommend working in any department but steer clear of Cosmetics. They work you lot death and there's very little re,ward. It's nothing but stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites? Support your staff through positive reinforcement rather than trying to motivate through the threat of losing your job. HR plays nice to your face but their main focus is to protect the company not the employees.

    Potential Interns: Steer Clear

    Former Employee - Sales and Management Intern in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Sales and Management Intern in Austin, TX

    I worked at Nordstrom as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -The only positive experience that came from my internship at Nordstrom was how NOT to treat employees and how NOT to run a department.
    -The pay can be good during busy times but it can also be bad during slow times, and with more and more people shopping online, slow times were plentiful
    -If you're an intern here, expect to learn everything from your fellow salespeople. The managment team is not helpful at all. I met some amazing salespeople.

    Cons

    -Inexperienced DMs & ADMs
    -Just because someone sells A LOT doesn't necessarily mean he/she can manage an entire floor of salespeople. This "Nordstrom logic" can be seen throughout the entire company
    -I didn't feel welcomed at all by my management team
    -Overall it could have been worse, but it should have been far better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everyone learns the same. Some people are visual learners, some people are not. Be humble and help "the little guy." Arrogance helps no one.
