I worked at Nordstrom full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

health/dental/vision benefits and 401K, opprtunity to purchase stock at a slight discount, the ability to build your own business if you are a great salesperson

Cons

Must be mobile to move up in the company, any disputes seem to favor management over sales staff, arbitrary schedule ranking process, beware if you don't apreciate gratuitous sports mataphores and rallies, gossip and favoritism run ramapant

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

    Pros

    If you sell a lot, you make a lot. You get to build relationships with some of the best customers. The discount is low but it works when you want things.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is very snooty and competitive most of the time. They mostly focus on your numbers and what they are. You're expected to want to constantly improve.
