I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Fun, fast paced environment, exciting events, great company to work for.

Cons

No specific guidelines for advancement, assistants not recognized for hard work or achievements. Several required tasks to complete and little to no time to complete them. Long hours and little work life balance.

Advice to Management

Focus a little less on your own advancement and put more effort into developing future leaders.

    I have been working at Nordstrom part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great on Resume
    20% Discount
    Small Employee parties (They bring us food)
    Discounts at eBAR and Bistro
    Up scale environment
    Awesome Pay (If you were a shark like me and stole sales--haha )

    Cons

    Extreme pressue to do better than your coworkers at all cost
    TERRIBLE SCHEDULING! I had to come in for meetings at 7 am and then come back to work at 2pm. So inconsiderate!
    If you're outgoing, loud, talkative you're probably a shark like me and will do well...but your coworkers will gossip about you.
    Too many employees at low traffic times make us all fight for our sales
    Oblivious management, seriously, why is it basically all girls in their 20 somethings.

    Advice to Management

    BE MORE AWARE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS ON YOUR SALES FLOORS
