I worked at Nordstrom part-time (less than an year)

Pros

The best reason to work at Nordies is the cultural environment and the exposure to high fashion and retail. Everyone at Nordies is very fashionable and stylish. Its a cool place to work if you need a side job and if you need sales experience it helps too.

Cons

The pay could be better. I know the top executives of Nordstrom are making big money but the low end baristas are making only a little bit above minimum wage. nordies could offer better wages and salaries and benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management should think about raising the wages for baristas and everyone else that works hard in inventory, stock, and maintenance. We work the hardest. Viva la raza~!

    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    100% commission. You can really do well for yourself if you're highly motivated and keep in touch with your clients.

    Cons

    Nordstrom is downsizing everything. Trying to go "mobile" and paperless which ends up making sales and managers have to do the work of the support staff they got rid of and continue to downsize even condensing corporate jobs. If you want to move up in Nordstrom, good luck. To make decent money here on the support side will take you MANY years. Was very excited to graduate college and move "down" to the corporate side of Nordstrom but every day is more discouraging with the amount of duties not related directly to the customer. It truly takes away from your customers experience and leaving many employees unhappy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your customer service back, get cashiers, get stock room people. If you want the sales people to do what you expect them to do (maintain great customer relationships and sell, sell, sell) then you have to support them.
