    Former Employee - Commissioned Sales Associate in Scottsdale, AZ

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

    Pros

    I made as much as I wanted. I got 9% of everything I sold. Sometimes my paychecks (every 2 weeks) were as much as $2500 for about 35 hours a week but they were also as low as $900. If you work hard, you can make a decent living at this job. Just be sure to build a customer base and always write thank you's!

    Cons

    Income wasn't consistent and depended on seasons. Long, tiring shifts what were very exhausting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A good manager makes or breaks the experience. If a team is complaining about a manager--do something about it. Employees want their opinions to count.

    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~!
