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

Pros

The Retail Management Internship Program was amazing. I loved the Nordstrom culture and I was very well taken care of. My manager was very passionate in her work and taught me how to grow a business.

Cons

The quality of the internship varies between each store. Luckily, I was placed in a store that was very supportive of their interns. Interns from other stores had a bad experience. Also, I wished I could learn even more about the managerial side than feeling like a sales associate 65% of the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it consistent. Let interns learn more about Nordstrom and the business than just selling.

    Pros

    I am very fortunate and grateful for the opportunity to work at Nordstrom, which is one of the most successful specialty retailers in the business

    Cons

    The Bad: Returns can affect your paycheck and your sales goals. Since Nordstrom is high on the customer service reputation, their return policy is very liberal so 99.99% of the time merchandise can be brought back and credited toward the selling employee.

    Pros

    Hires from within, have opportunity to grow. Great team moral, very rewarding.

    Cons

    Must meet goals and is commission based so there is competitiveness. But you should want to push yourself to succeed.
