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

    Pros

    Good working environment, good pay. It's a part salary and part commission job, more sales you can make within a pay period, more pay for you at the end of the pay period.

    Cons

    Competition amongst colleagues : since everyone wants to make good sales to get good pay, some of your coworkers may not be too friendly while on the sales floor
