    I worked at Nordstrom as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging yet supportive work environment, offers many opportunities to move up and around within the company, offers good work / life balance.

    Cons

    Need to continue to invest in technology infrastructure to improve internal employee processes. As company continues to grow, emphasize effective manager training programs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to emphasize long time Nordstrom culture even though they continue to recruit heavily outside the company.


  2. "Being pressured by managers to pressure customers just isn't for me"

    Pros

    Can be well-paying if you don't mind working on commission

    Cons

    - Working on commission
    - Being chided by management for trying to respect customers' wishes and personal space

    Advice to Management

    Management claims to have customer service as the main goal for the company, but it's really not true. If it were, sales associates wouldn't have the fear of God put in them to circle customers like vultures until they are so uncomfortable they cave and buy something. Or, quite often, they just leave.
    Also, they really need to quit hiring preteen girls who have no basic skills besides having hip fashion sense. Don't get me wrong, fashion sense is quite important in a CLOTHING STORE, but if that's all you have, you're not doing any company or its customers any favors. Just as, like another reviewer pointed out, just because someone has excellent sales does NOT mean that they would make an effective manager, but Nordstrom doesn't seem to realize this, and will promote catty, aggressive, and wildly patronizing individuals to department manager.
