Loved my coworkers, and learning on the job
RETAIL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Ontario Mills, CA – May 18, 2017
My first week working at Nordstrom's Rack was very stressful, not only did I not have a ton of experience in a face-paced retail environment, the manager was not present the first week. However the other managers were encouraging, and helped me out a lot. A few polices were never explained to me, and did not present their policy book to me until after I had made mistakes. Fortunately they did not take out this mistake on me, for the lack of guidance was on their part. In other words they realized it was their mistake not mine. I found the staff to be courteous, and not demeaning to the "lower status" workers (myself). Overall I enjoyed working there, and would recommend it as a first time job, it was not easy, but it was fulfilling at the end of the day. It was on the job training, and was a crash course in the retail world. I left Nordstrom's Rack due to conflicts with my schooling, and the distance from my school/ home, otherwise I would have tried to stay with this company.
Flexible work schedule, student friendly
Fast-paced, kind of disorganized at times
