    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good business being an anchor store in Aventura.
    Friendly co-workers.
    Good job; not a good place to grow a career. There's a difference.

    Cons

    Returns during slow pay periods will leave you with very small paychecks.
    Not a good store to grow in - managers are stepping down from their positions because the pay is not worth the stress from upper management.
    Your hard work will go unnoticed and unappreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Start acknowledging the people that work hard instead of the people that "look the part". The company is losing talented leaders to competitors.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great Customer relationships built. Fast paced. Decent Hours. Gained knowledge of clothing brands, materials, price points etc.

    Cons

    Managers are AWFUL. Because sales associates work on a commission base, employees/colleagues are forced to compete against one another for customers and act as sharks killing one another to get a customer's sale. It annoyed customers how we had to approach them non-stop in order to get them into a fitting room to try on and then purchase clothing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire Managers with Management Degree backgrounds with a strong desire to lead/mold their inferior staff members into thriving sales associates rather than pushing them aside to get your own sales numbers up!
