"Not the best, but not the worst."

Former Employee - Sales Associate in Palo Alto, CA
Former Employee - Sales Associate in Palo Alto, CA

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

Pros

- Employee shop day/discount.
- Being able to see/get your hands on all the latest trends and merchandise first.
- With a commission-based salary, your paycheck reflects how hard you work; you reap what you sow.

Cons

- As with any retail job, the competitive nature of sales can get the better of you over time.
- Customer returns are taken directly out of your paycheck.

Advice to Management

Although meeting goals and "making the numbers" are what the industry of retail is all about, please make more of an effort to at least pretend like you care about your employees.
