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

    Pros

    Treat their employees well - even sales floor staff. There is also a lot of potential to make a high commission while working on the floor.

    Cons

    Competition on the floor can be tough and sometimes unfair. Also, sometimes customer traffic is very slow in certain departments so there's not always a lot to do.
