I worked at Nordstrom part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Amazing training program and materials, decent entry-level pay. This is a great company to work for. They give you the tools you need to succeed in the job you were hired for.

Cons

Takes forever to move up in the company, bad hours (but you'll find that in any retail job). I did not see much of a future here. It would have been a good place to be if I were a salesman (depending on the department) because you get commission. However, not the greatest place to be for a creative person, hoping to move into a more creative career. Also, working in the department I worked in was mind-numbingly boring. But that is to no fault of the company.

Advice to Management

Everything is run very efficiently as well, so keep up the good work. I would like to see you nurture the talent that students with degrees in fashion have.

    I worked at Nordstrom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I got a paycheck every two weeks

    Cons

    I was treated like a slave, verbally abused, and taken advantage of.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to the employees and how they are being treated. If you see a large number of employees being let go or stepping down in one dept take notice of the leader of that dept because thats where the problem is. Poor management!

    Learn about buying process and great for networking.

    Repetitive, not a lot of room for growth with the company. Pay isn't great, but benefits are awesome!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to need for growth and help your OA move down the pyramid.
