I have been working at Nordstrom

Pros

Pay is excellent compared to other retail companies

Cons

No flexibilty when it comes to scheduliing
They rank co-workers against each other using the rankings as a means of distributing hours
Do as I say not as I do attitude of managemet
Favoritetism abounds

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Due away with the archaic system of ranking non commisioned employees against with other. It breeds contempt amongst co-workers who are supposed to work together as a team to carry-out the goals of the company.

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good for South Florida.

    Cons

    They play favorites. You have to work inhumane hours. There is no balance between your personal life and work. You are expected to come in early and leave late every shift. Otherwise, you are not doing your job. There is no support at all, and you get talked down to all the time. It is a negative environment and drains all your joy. There is a lot of shady stuff that goes on at that store, but if you kiss the store manager's butt enough the other cheek is turned. Do not believe in the open door policy. It is a crock of crap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a manager. Treat people with respect, and punish the people that need to be punished. Do not play favorites. Listen to sales people and dept managers when they have a complaint.
