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

Pros

Good pay and good opportunity to transfer to another position in the main store.

Cons

Spend most of your time cleaning, arranging, picking up after customers. Very little time to actually engage the customers and sell. Also, management wasn't very good at training you in all aspects of the job. They sort of throw you in and expect you to get up to speed magically by osmosis.

Advice to Management

Take more time to train your employees. Don't expect someone who's getting the same pay as the new guy to really put in the time and effort required.
