    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have met some AMAZING people there that I will be staying in touch with

    Cons

    Many departments are commission only, so if nobody is buying or if everyone returns what they bought, you are working for minimum wage

    Advice to Management

    Managers tend to be extremely young, and in many cases it is obvious that they were hired and promoted for their overall appearance rather than their abilities.


  2. "Simply the best experience. Period."

    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (Less than a year)

    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!
