    Accumulates VERY slowly. Really only worth using if you’ve been there a long time or if you’re about to quit and get your hours paid out.

    After a year you could get vacation time paid off.

    One of the only fashion retail companies with paid vacation. That's awesome. But it was very difficult to get time off certain times of the year. So if you found a cheap flight deal, make sure you can get off first before you buy.

    Decent but tech people could get more from the start than other employees who worked just as hard. Many employees who had been there awhile so they had 4-5 weeks (hard- earned) vacation and the consensus was that they were let go as it cost Nordstrom too much.

    Based on time worked, you recieve PTO and sick time.

    It is very confusing how many years it takes to advance your PTO level.

    For those who work hard, they can earn PTO by hourly on certain dates.

    Standard right out of the gate and gets better the longer you're there.

    Takes a while to earn your PTO. Can be very hard to get time off approved depending on the season.
