    Seasonal Cashier at women's shoes full-time

    I worked at Nordstrom full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good for a cashier.
    Meet many interesting people.
    Hours were good.
    You get to learn about shoes especially when it comes to fashion. (I only dress in T's and shorts so that says a lot)

    Cons

    You have to stand the entire time.
    You have to always be doing something even when theres no customers.
    Customers will sometimes look down on you because sales person have more knowledge about shoes than cashiers.
    Multitasking is a big plus like answering phone calls and speaking with customers at the same time.
    The training isn't very helpful because they cover very vague areas of being a cashier like using a cash register when in reality, you have to learn like 10 different methods to ring someone up for different circumstances.

    I worked at Nordstrom as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Inside view of the company (more than what a regular sales employee would experience); able to meet and hear from Blake Nordstrom and other company executives; commission-based; awesome training sessions; 20% discount; ability to continue working after summer internship is over

    Cons

    Dealing with rude customers; working nights and weekends; beware of fellow co-workers who try to take your sales

    I worked at Nordstrom part-time

    Pros

    The store is busy so you can do well in commission but it depends on the department you work in. Work in the departments that offer %10 commission

    Cons

    The hours for retail are not good. Weekends, nights and holidays which are not good. Long hours standing. It is a good job for part time but not for full time
