    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Management takes time to train you and makes sure you are comfortable and knowledgeable about the products in your department

    -Competitive pay and benefits (they also run lots of contests and award the top salespeople so you have opportunities to make even more and get free gifts)

    - Employees and culture of the company are very welcoming. I found everyone to be extremely helpful when I first started.

    - Companies has a policy to hire from within so there is room for growth. Almost all the managers started as salespeople.

    - Decent employee discount that can be combined with most sales Nordstrom has

    - Nordstrom really emphasizes and values customer service. You're expectations for what a company should offer to its customers will definitely go up after working here.

    Cons

    - Commission environment may cause issues with for some

    - Retails hours make it hard to get things done outside of work. Say good-bye to your weekends.

    - Slow periods (like right after the holiday season) are VERY rough on your paycheck. Makes it hard to budget as you don't know how much each of your paychecks will be.

    - Fraudulent purchases and returns hurt your sales numbers

    - Expected to cold call during slow periods or for sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Have better, more defined policies in place for employees to limit disputes between employees over whose sale it was.

    - Refine Open Return Policy to limit fraud
