    I worked at Nordstrom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stock purchase plan, 401K, discount

    Cons

    Long hours, low base pay, constantly changing the rules, as a manager you are asked to sell, schedule, manage your people, teach selling, unpack freight, merchandise, clean, etc. Long days during sales and events. During these times only get one day off per week and work 12-14 hour days.

    Advice to Management

    Raise base pay for managers. You are either a glorified salesman or a manager. Treat the managers as managers, not as salespeople. Training could be better.
