I worked at Nordstrom full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Good pay.
- Management understands their customers and their employees.
- Outstanding benefits including discount on merchandise.
- Co-workers treat each other with respect.
- Ability to advance based on your own ability.

Cons

- There are not many downsides to working at Nordstrom. Perhaps the biggest is that to advance in the company you will need to be better at your job than your peers. Because you are working side by side with some very talented individuals, this is not easy to do.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing.

    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable discount, not great
    Commissions
    Nice customers

    Cons

    Horrible oversight of managers and management training
    Weak follow through on poor managers, tend to promote incompetence
    Benefits.... thin and few and not enough incentive to spend years here
    Return policy raids otherwise solid commission structure
    Incentives built in for customers to return and ruin commissions

    Advice to Management

    Don't just train managers, follow up, examine and get 360 degree feedback aside from floor production numbers to see how they are really doing. Seek employee feedback! Customers are constantly asking for "x" and store has loads of "Y" and there is a huge disconnect between managers, buyers and front line sales employees who get asked constantly why we don't have something. Re-connect the buying process to the 'what's asked for' side of the business.
