      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Nordstrom full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Easy interview process, fairly easy to request days off depending on your manager

      Cons

      There are no half-days of work so everything is full time. If you're applying here, you should put "full-time" as seasonally and hope to get asked to come back full-time. It can be competitive so if you want to reach the commission mark, you have to work extra hard to get customers before other employees do.

    • Great experience and many growing opportunities.

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Nordstrom full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Good experience to put on a resume! Many opportunities for growth. You will learn a lot about how to manage a sales floor even when you are not the manager. You will learn how to be a more professional person in your everyday life... well I did. This job has helped me carry myself in a more serious and professional manner.

      Cons

      Hours are rough. Hard to have a balanced work and social life. At times your work life and friends become your social life.

      Advice to Management

      Goal expectancy is a bit high when business is slow. The world is evolving into a more eCommerce shopping environment, this should reflect on the stores goal expectancy. Ex: online sales increase = store sales decrease

    • Positive overall experience

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Nordstrom full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great store and merchandise; great company culture; upward mobility for those who sell well, flexible hours

      Cons

      Commissioned-base with low hourly pay so you must sell and hit or exceed your monthly target to make any money

      Advice to Management

      Change your return policy, make it a little stricter put a time limit on returns then the store would experience less financial lost and that can go towards paying your employees a better hourly or commission percentage

    • Decent place to work

      Pros

      I had a great department manager and coworkers that made the workplace more enjoyable.

      It's tough to earn enough commission to make more than your base salary in the Men's department, especially during slow periods.
