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

    Pros

    The employee discount was one of the main reasons I stuck around for as long as I did. I worked my tail off to be a pacesetter to obtain the 33%. I wanted something to show for all of my hours slaved away.

    Cons

    I did not feel like a person, I felt like a number. HR was an absolute JOKE, along with loss prevention. Customers got away with murder in the store. I saw so many employees come and go, I cycled through 6 different managers. New hires were barely trained, just set out on the floor and expected to know everything.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lie to your employees and promise them things they will never get.
