    Awesome Place to Work

    Lingerie Fit Specialist (Current Employee) Santa Monica, CA

    ProsFriendly and helpful managers. Really work around your schedule for school and allowing to still be able to have a social life.

    Not What I Expected

    KidsWear Sales (Former Employee) Santa Monica, CA

    ProsFun atmosphere, reputable company, store discount, face to face work with customers, room for advancement

    ConsMOST of the departments only pay with COMMISSION ONLY. keep in mind that if no one shops and you dont sell, you make NO money unless you "miss draw" and then you make around $10/ hr. Also, sales can become very competitive and employees sometimes steal sales from each other

    Advice to Senior Managementthere should be a base pay plus commission. Nordstrom charges too much for items to not at least treat their employees with a base pay for all of their hard work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
