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

Pros

Good employee discount, great people and a low stress environment. Everyone is very good about helping each other out.

Cons

Limited opportunity for growth, lots of areas are unwilling to train skills for back office roles. This is highly female environment that can get a little passive aggressive at times. The culture also loves to make everyone happy which can mean lots of unnecessary meetings.

Advice to Management

More career opportunities. Better training for future career advancements.

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

    Pros

    Nordstrom offers competitive pay for retail field and good benefits depending on tenure

    Cons

    Very long hours and work days, managers do tons of work with poor compensation if your business isn't doing well

    Advice to Management

    If a store is doing poorly don't think it's the department managers that are incapable or at fault because most of the time they are doing everything within their control to turn their business around and sometimes it's to no avail and then they are stuck in their position for years at no fault of their own because they have "bad business"
