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

    Pros

    good benefits
    you make your paychecks
    good place to network and meet place.
    great way to get sales experience and learn product knowledge and good customer service

    Cons

    no base salary and it is 100 % commission makes it difficult during slow times and the summer time.
    worse part is returns affect your commission so you want to make sure when you sell something that they aren't going to come back the next day and return it

    Advice to Management

    train the new employees better...

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nordstrom used to have a culture that placed humility, honesty and integrity front and center. I was proud to call Nordstrom my employer and learned a lot professionally and personally.

    Cons

    Its great to find efficiencies and run lean as long as quality is not at stake. If you make changes do it in a way that inspires trust and motivation. Alway give credit where its do and recognize people that are doing great.

    Advice to Management

    Genuinely care about your employees. Recognize employees and always give credit when its due so that it doesnt seem like you are taking it.
