I worked at Nordstrom full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Other companies really look positively on Nordstrom and the standards they have in place for there employees.
- Have a great amount of respect for employees and giving them the tools to make good money
-In the right department you can make very good money (50-80k) ie. salon shoes, women shoes, men's sportswear.
- I had an amazing department manager

Cons

-some negative employees can really harm the work environment
-its retail so the hours are not the best, but deal with it.
-very competitive atmosphere which results in some shady sales people

Advice to Management

I would really try and find people that are positive. In my experience there was always someone talking negative about customers, managers, the job in general.

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

    Pros

    The hourly pay was good.

    Cons

    I worked in cosmetics and the turnover for employees was outrageous. I've been gone since August 2012, and I see job postings for the same job about every three months. If you like to be talked down to and harassed about sales constantly, this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the way you train your employees and then you won't have such a high turnover rate. Don't talk down to people; it doesn't make them work harder, it just caused bad attitudes and resentment. Don't make hourly quotas so high that only one or two people in a huge dept. can make them.
