Pros: Co-Workers, Benefits, and Customer Interaction
A typical day at Nordstrom included many different things, depending on what shift you would work. Displaying new items on the sales floor, rearranging the sales floor, cleaning and tidying of the sales floor, helping customers pick out clothes, shoes, and accessories, creating outfits that suited the customer, and always making sure the customer leaves extremely satisfied with their "Nordstrom experience". During my time with Nordstrom I learned a lot of useful information, such as the many different fits of different clothing, working with a customer to build outfits that suit their style or update their style, how to arrange a sales floor that "flows" when you are shopping, hard work and dedication of a whole new level, and the importance of honesty with your customer. My co-workers were an amazing, fun group. We always worked with each other to accomplish a task and never though better of one another. My manager especially helped me grow so much in a short time, he is truly a great teacher, and an amazing person. The hardest part but at the same time an enjoyable part of the job was when we had a floor move and had to stay late after closing or come in early before opening and completely rearrange the sales floor. There was a lot of heavy lifting, and running around, but teamwork and laughter made for a good time. But by far the most enjoyable part of the job was working hand and hand with a customer and watching them leave happy and satisfied with their "Nordstrom experience".
