Pros

Great benefits, employee discounts, weeks dedicated to giving employees an extra discount and builds ones character.

Cons

Repetitive, can be long hours, transfers are difficult, the departments attitudes can consistently be uninviting, and lack of modernizing.

    Pros

    Commission - so if you work hard, your paycheck will show it and theres no limit so how much you can make

    Cons

    Since its commission, associates do get competitive and become sharks when it comes to sales.
    And customers can return whenever and whatever they want and that does affect your paycheck as well.
    Hours are long. If you want to make more money you need to work more.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. The pay is ok. Discounts are great. Most of the people are awesome. The company is always looking for creative ways to sell product.

    Cons

    Nordstrom knows that they are the only semi-couture fashion company in Seattle and they definitely cash in on that by over-working and undervaluing employees. You can pay your dues for years and never be given any additional challenges no matter how many times you ask. Eventually you just give up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No matter how low on the ladder (or in Nordstrom's case, the higher on the pyramid), pay attention to your employee's strengths. You don't necessarily have to promote, just utilize their skills in ways that they take pride in their jobs, not just make them feel like a mechanical robot.
