    Pros

    I graduated with a bachelors degree and always knew I wanted to eventually end up at Nordstrom corporate. Everyone must start on the sales floor, and of course they should! You must be an expert on the product before you can be successful and progress within the company. And that's another reason why Nordstrom is so wonderful... They promote from within. With a bachelors degree and Nordstrom experience, the sky is the limit. It's just such a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Takes some time to progress, but the trip is fun!

    Advice to Management

    My management is super open and understanding. Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    I think if you worked at a bigger door then there would be a lot on Pros, smaller doors really have to fight.

    Cons

    the amount of work you put in doesn't match the paycheck. Nordstrom doesn't believe in a cost of living raise. Working on straight commission, not being supported. Retaliation, treated unfairly.

    Advice to Management

    If there is going to be an open door policy then it should be upheld. Look at your PTR reports closely, you have a huge number of people fighting to keep thier houses and pay the bills, plus on assistance.
    Why are you promoting people who can't even use the share drive, and proven all they can do is sell.
    Isn't the point of a manager to coach, lead and support?
