Sales Associate (Former Employee), Costa Mesa, CAJuly 25, 2015
I was employed by Nordstrom at the age of 19 to the age of 32.
It was a amazing company to work for.
I would go back to this company if it wasnt for the sales comission expected.
I was a very hungry – more... sales person at the time of my employment at Nordstrom.
I achieved alot of great things while working there.
I was a very respected sales person and then went on to be a very respected secretary to the Mens Sportswear buyer.
I left there to work at Rusty for more flexible hours after I had my second child.
Great company.
I am best friends with a few of my co workers to this day. – less

Great Benefits, very easy to lose your job
Loss Prevention Agent (Current Employee), Mclean, VAJuly 24, 2015
Pros: Great training and great benefits
Cons: No job security
Loss prevention with Nordstrom is fun and exciting, and has you looking forward to coming to work. The only drawback is you are constantly second guessing your every move because one slip up can cost you your job.

Salesperson (Current Employee), St. Lous MOJuly 24, 2015
Working in Nordstrom (commission) made me learn to stay on my toes and that to make money in the business you have to run your own business. Emphasize on your skills and take all product knowledge in to consideration to offer the best help you can for every customer.

Assistant Manager Kids Shoes (Current Employee), White Plains, NYJuly 22, 2015
Pros: GREAT SALE
Cons: HEALTH INSURANCE
Great Company
Little support for sale.
Great opportunities to grow.
Hardest part of job is the little support that is available.
Stressful if not able to sell well. You will unfortunately will be reprimanded is not about to make sales goals.
YOU MAKE AS MUCH AS YOU WANT. YOU MAKE YOUR OWN PAYCHECK.

Assistant Department Manager (Former Employee), Farmington, CTJuly 22, 2015
As a manger, you must be available to work everyday all day. If you work under the right person you will move up quickly. Always stay to yourself and never get too personal

top end of the retail world
Makeup Artist (Former Employee), New EnglandJuly 22, 2015
Pros: pretty good healthcare benefits package, paid time off, paid holidays, fun atmosphere
Cons: you're only as good as what you sold yesterday
If you're going to make a career in retail, do it at Nordstrom. They have a sales-is-king culture and reward those who sell a lot. As a makeup artist working for them and not a sales-minded individual, – more... it was not a perfect fit for me. I enjoyed my days and my coworkers, but the pressure of sales goals is not something that has ever appealed to me, nevermind the "shark"-like attributes of some of the other employees, seeking to do no more than make their commission and go home. That being said, I gave it a lot of my life and I've learned a lot from them and made a lot of great memories. – less

Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee), Centennial, COJuly 21, 2015
Learned a lot, really enjoyed the recognition program. Great company to grow your career in. Didn't really enjoy the customers that just call to complain and nothing will satisfy them - that was the hardest part.
