Customer Support is simply that - Repetetive
Home Based Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee), Work at HomeJuly 28, 2015
Pros: Nice company value system
Cons: Boring work, Company rules are very black and while, Intent doesn't matter
Great company in relation to their philanthropic nature and their genuine care to provide the very best customer service to their customers.

The company is very diversity conscience as well with many awards won.

When it comes to customer service you must still fit into that box. Boring call after call after call with no venting allowed for work at home employees and no room for mistakes.

Certified Leg Wear specialist (Current Employee), Corte Madera, CAJuly 27, 2015
Pros: great pay checks
Cons: commission based
Working at Nordstrom can be a lot of fun when there is a lot of foot traffic on your floor. It is commission based so it makes the environment very competitive and hostile at times. Keeping busy by cleaning and putting away lose items found around the floor or fitting room helps a lot when it is slow and there isn't much to do. A great company to work for especially for students because of the flexible hours.

store Loss Prevention Agent (Former Employee), vaJuly 27, 2015
I come in and open the store, once opened I walk around monitoring for shoplifters or any activity that look out of the ordinary. If a shoplifter is caught I then write my report and hold the shoplifter until police arrive. On occasions I have to go to court to testify.

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 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.

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.
