Pros

assistant manager title: leadership, chance to grow, discount, create your own tentative schedule.

Company: Amazing "family." The Nordstrom Culture is unique and caring. The tone set by corporate and leadership is unlike anyone else. Overall amazing place to work.

Cons

lots of hours during peak times in the year.

Advice to Management

more reviews for managers to showcase strengths. sometimes I feel like there is too much focus on the sales associates, and managers lose out on some chances to grow.

    Pros

    - Nice clean enviorment, assocaites are generally nice, store is clean....You can make good money

    Cons

    EVERYBODY RETURNS Everything. My department manager has driven out everyone from over achievers to Nordstrom vetrans. If you work in TBD assume that means you cant dress and you cant sell. THe vendor even gives you freebies (which the tax is conveniently taken from your paycheck) - these freebies are so everyone can look like clones and PROVE they too can embrace fashion. IF you are offered at POSITION in this DEPARTMENT RUN or be SEASONAL.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the managers really do care and make the place fun and rewarding to work. If you are offered a job in TBD make sure to have a back up plan its impossible to make your goal when everything is $20.00. **talking down to your employees or giving them little talks that arent coaching arent really afffective long term...maby its the manager that is a BAD FIT for the department.
