Great job if your focused
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Garden City, NYSeptember 11, 2014
loved making your own paychecks. the more sales you made the better your check. Hated the catty-ness with other co workers and fighting for sales. management was a bit overbearing pushing you to reach sales goals that sometimes weren't even realistic.

Highly supportive and productive environment
Sales Associate/Stylist (Former Employee), Lone Tree, COSeptember 11, 2014
Nordstrom is a wonderful company to work for. The 'entrepreneur sprint' is highly encouraged, giving all employees a chance for growth and opportunity. Nordstrom also provides a range of benefits including, health/dental insurance, 401K, and employee stock options.
Nordstrom provides a creatively conducive environment. As a salesperson, ones earnings – more... are commission based. A commission based position inspires one to take a more professional approach. Each salesperson is essentially running their own business- taking the initiative to build and maintain lasting customer relationships. – less

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Lynnwood, WASeptember 11, 2014
Pros: discount
Cons: everything
Nordstrom is just a name. This is not a place you want to work if you want to move up in the company, make money, and/or have a life outside of work. The management is horrible, and if your not a veteran, believe you'll be working until 10 pm four times a week. You'll be working really hard everyday for little pay because the commision is bull. Not – more... to mention, most of the time your working to get back in the positive from all the returns. Overall, if your okay with working over 40 hours a week for a $300 paycheck, this is the place for you. – less

Sales Associate/Suit Fit Specialist (Former Employee), Dallas, TXSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: hour lunch
Cons: no real cons
Cleaning and organizing shirts was a daily routine as well as calling customers for events and special sales. I learned great communication skill as well as working with a team of great employees. Management was strict but fair. The hardest part about the job was leaving it and the most enjoyable part was coming to work everyday and selling.

Personal Stylist (Current Employee), Tampa, FLSeptember 8, 2014
Many may view retail as a "job" but I have made it a "career" as a Personal Stylist. I work closely with my clients and make an effort to develop long-lasting, trusting relationships. I work very hard to educate myself about current trends to ensure my clients are getting what they want. Nordstrom has taught me the best customer service methods all – more... while developing my sales skills. – less

This was by far one of the best companies that I have ever worked for, hands down. The training was very thorough so when it came down to the job that I had to do I was able to jump right into the tasks that were required of me and was able to complete all with no struggle.

Logistics/Stock Lead (Former Employee), Annapolis, MDSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: employee discount
Nordstrom was had a very diverse and knowledgeable employee base. Opportunities for advancement were available for every department division. Normally this would be ideal, however, their management seems to only respond to "Yes Men/Women." Add that to the fact that they have zero respect for their support staff, coupled with unrealistic expectations.
