Featured Review
"All-Star!"Apr 9, 2021

Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate

I worked at Nordstrom full-time

Pros

Accomplishments are acknowledged and rewarded

Cons

Making commission only happens once you exceed your hourly wages in sales. This probably should be broken down more before hiring.

I have been working at IKEA part-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Offers me a flexible schedule

Cons

Wish that it paid more
