    I have been working at Nordstrom Rack

    Pros

    Paid-Time Off
    Hourly wage
    Continuous Training
    Work environment - fast paced
    Nordstrom Culture
    Nordstrom gives back to the community - volunteer opportunities.

    Cons

    Benefits require minimum 130 avg hours worked a month, hard to accomplish when you work less than 40 hours a week.
    Hire Within = favoritism
    Never a set schedule - random days off in the middle of the week, always working weekends.

    I worked at Nordstrom Rack (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great hardworking and knowledgeable people to work with.

    Cons

    Miscommunication and non-communication from upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put a block on all PTO time the entire month of February and the entire month of August because of one inventory day. Most of your stores block a whole five months out of the year already for seasonal events. Do you guys have families ?

    Pros

    Top notch customer service approach, great store management and great regional management. Benefits are awesome compared to other companies. Frequent raises.

    Cons

    Some departments within the store have corrupt/unprofessional managers. Performance expectations are high and somewhat unrealistic, especially the Rewards program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure there's enough staff to reach goals. Weed out corrupt managers.
