    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    There were random bonuses given at company update meetings.

    Cons

    Companies that are so focused on the customer often let there employees' well being fall short.

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees feel valued and not over worked. If it is past my break time I will NOT take one more customer.


  2. "Intense environment, people take themselves way to serious for it being a retail position."

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

    Pros

    Great compensation.
    Peers were fun to work with, a lot of young people.

    Cons

    Management is "sharky," they want to sell more than they want to teach and lead.
    Sales floor environment is unorganized and overly competitive.
    Schedule expectations are high and time off is practically unmentionable.

    Advice to Management

    Be more of a leader on the floor.
    Facilitate team selling with yourself and a younger sales associate rather than swiping them and then saying " I told you so."
