Pros

Management is very supported. They want you to do well and most will go out of their way to help you succeed.

Cons

A lot of petty issues in most departments. New people often steal sales unintentionally. Not a lot of direction on what your job entails, they kind of just stick you out on the floor after register training and let you figure it out on your own.

Advice to Management

Stop playing favorites.

  1. Very good summer retail job

    Pros

    For a summer job, I was very pleased with working at Nordstrom. They were very accommodating of my needs as far as my timeframe. I was happy that I was able to work full-time and their compensation is pretty competitive. Working for commission meant that I was in control of how much money I made. Also, the job was far more interesting and engaging than other retail positions at other companies.

    Cons

    Some managers were incompetent and blamed the problems on the employees instead of fixing things themselves. They claim that they only promote from within but mobility is not as easy as it sounds.

  2. I loved working for Nordstrom.
