Pros

Always was trained to provide the best service to maximize relationship and experience for the customers. Environment was very upbeat and fun towards goals.

Cons

As any retail job would bring I'd say you just have to have a stomach for long hours, even on the weekends.

Advice to Management

None just keep doing what you are doing!!! Management is always upbeat and motivating to encourage you to reach your goals and gain incentives.

    Pros

    House 20 discount on everything.
    Fun & creative co-workers.

    Cons

    Nordstrom has a policy of promoting sales staff to department managers and therefore has crappy managers. Just because someone looks good on paper does not mean they can manage people. They're promoted based on their sales #s and not personality & leadership. Besides that, most of the time they sit in their back offices with their "favorites" applying make-up, drinking coffee, etc. It's like a bad sit-com.

    Advice to Management

    When promoting managers make sure they can manage a department. Put them through management & leadership training before giving them a department to rein over. Nordstrom is a great company but you're missing the boat and losing good sales people to Bloomingdales because they pay better and their managers are aren't trolls.
