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

    Pros

    I loved the freedom to influence my own pay through hard work and building a solid personal customer base. The most rewarding part honestly was helping people look their best, especially people who rushed in last minute and were able to leave ready for their activities for the evening, with a smile on their face.

    Cons

    The workforce consists of ultra-competitive people because of the personal influence of money, and the drive to exceed LY. While competitiveness isn't a bad thing, the motivating factors drive everyone to neglect non-selling duties and fight over commission. The lean times drive a few employees to unethical behavior.

    Advice to Management

    I know that the numbers are important because they allow everyone to keep doing what they're doing, but not punishing bad behavior just because it comes from a strong performer creates a toxic environment, and reinforces the offender.

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

    Pros

    When I worked there you could learn a lot, and make a lot, if you know how to sell. It could get competitive, but if you have a great manager to learn from they will set the tone. You get out what you put in.

    Cons

    The company seems to be changing from what I see, it's less about the best customer interaction and more money driven than ever. If you aren't a top performer, and or young, you're not what they want. That breeds a very toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what this company was founded on, and don't invest in slimy, shark associates. They are natural sellers but turning them into managers doesn't mean they can teach that to others.
