    The only constant is change, and that's not necessarily a good thing.

    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Totally commission based so there's no salary cap. You meet some really great people. Good to have on a resume. Schedule isn't made on seniority but rather sales. Technology is current (ipads and ipods as registers).

    Cons

    Discount is mediocre. Some employees are sharks and veteran employees are 'stuck in their old ways'. Dept managers have little say in what happens other than coaching employees. Little help from above. Technology doesn't always work. Paid bi-monthly and some paychecks are $400. Have to be able to move around the country to be promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give Department managers more freedom, bring back the family atmosphere and get rid of the corporate vibe coming in. Bring back the old Nordstrom (Looking at you Nord Brothers)
