Approves of CEO

I worked at Nordstrom as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great training in the retail industry and customer service, but manager and co-workers are a bit hit or miss.

Cons

Disillusionment on the glamorous and fun side of retail. Pushes too hard for the ideal situation when that never really happens

Advice to Management

Be more realistic and offer better opportunities for growth and development
