It was an okay workplace
Salesperson (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 18, 2015
Pros: hour lunches, customer relationships, events at work
Cons: micromanagement, not appreicated, dead season
The management here, sucked! Well in my department. It is a good place overall to work at, the money is good. You will experience a dead season, but it does pick back up by summer. HR, does not support you like you think. You receive hour lunches. It is majority commission based, so not fit for shy, timid people.

Pros: Management help, pizza party when store goals are met
Cons: Limited healthcare
Management staff is great and is available for assistant. Managers make sure that they provide all the help they can to ensure that sales associates have all the information and product to efficiently assist customer. Management is helpful in letting associates know about possible promotions in the company.

Being a salesmen at Nordstrom gave me a sense of responsibility and instill leadership in me at a young age. this was my first job where i kept in touch with all my customers via phone and email. i kept them updated on upcoming sales and events that were occurring at the store. On a daily basis i aid in managing the stock room and keeping it organized

Decent job at best
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHApril 16, 2015
Work days were okay. There is a lot of down time which means if your not selling anything you won't make as much money. The company would be better if there was higher pay and better store management

Fashion Foward Company with Fast Paced Setting
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Santa Anita, CAApril 16, 2015
Pros: Fast paced, discounts, stock options
Cons: Health Care, Not room for advancement
I have worked for four years for Nordstrom. During my time at Nordstrom I worked in practically every division such as Mens, Womens and Kids. I enjoyed a great deal of product knowledge training and a competetive workplace setting.
I learned how to sell to a diverse group of people on a daily basis. Working in commision sales teaches you how to get out of your comfort zone and try and understand your clients on an individual basis. This could be a struggle if you are an introvert, but in general I saw lots of personal growth throughout my time there.

Wonderful workplace
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), San Jose, CAApril 16, 2015
Working for Nordstrom has been one of the best experiences I have had. They truly are a great company to work for and they really do care about their employees. I really loved being able to interact with customers and usually the work environment was a positive place. Of course, like any job, there was some drawbacks in Management but honestly, I wouldn't judge the company based of the management I dealt with.

Cosmetic Business Manager (Current Employee), Natick, MAApril 14, 2015
Pros: Clean, organized, and safe environment
Cons: constant policy changes, poor benefits, fluctuating hours
As the economy has declined, so has the level of service provided as well as management in this company. Every year becomes more of a challenge to maintain salary and service through a consistent decline of resources and stable management. Relatively speaking, it is probably still one of the best retailers to work for, but I have a hard time feeling like I'm in a professional career anymore.

Personal Stylist Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 13, 2015
Working at Nordstrom I learned a lot about customer service at it's best! Everyone that works at Nordstrom are top sellers and they have the best customer service you can imagine. I built my customer service skills by working here and I learned how to multitask very well also. A typical day at work was assisting all personal stylist with any retail therapy their clients needed, water, different sizes, shoes etc. It was always a fast pace environment with a lot of movement during the day. All the managers was helpful and very friendly. I really enjoyed working at Nordstrom.
