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

Pros

Loved my coworkers. Great hours to work while in school. Most customers were great too! Money was good when there was a ton of customers

Cons

It's commission only or you get paid hourly. So when it was slow you didn't get paid much.

Advice to Management

Don't only focus on sales to promote people. Just because you're good at sales doesn't mean you'll be a good manager. Those are two different skill sets. Try looking at education too!
