Assistant Department Manager (Current Employee) – Cherry Hill, NJ – April 21, 2017
My experience at Nordstrom has been positive. I have held different roles and was able to master each of them with the support of management and peers. Attention to customer service was the leading driving factor in the success of every department. I am interested in being challenged and growing a career in a like-field.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Concord, CA – April 20, 2017
This place helped me learn more about customer service and working with other people in a fast pace environment. However my boss was not very kind and when i was sick made me come in to work because her excuse was a lot of people already called out so yeah i quit after 3 months.

Pros of working at Nordstrom: 401K Paid time of Time off requested usually granted Store manager is friendly and caring Friendly work environment
Cons: No paid sick time Benefits only granted to those who work over a certain number of hours. Near impossible to reach those number of hours required Too much micromanagement No consistency between managers in each department
Visual Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Texas – April 20, 2017
Nordstrom is a great company. The pay for visual is great. Discounts awesome. Hour lunch break. Benefits are amazing. The only problem the "culture" you have some 20 year old girls who watched Mean Girls and Devil Wears Prada too many times. Too many cliques. Bi polar management.
Management Intern (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – April 20, 2017
Nordstrom was great because if you are a good salesperson you will be successful, and management is great for encouraging you and giving sales tips. The internship was hectic as our supervisor for the internship was promoted mid summer.

Service Experience Specialist (Current Employee) – Mission Viejo, CA – April 19, 2017
The environment is very friendly. Management is top notch. There's never a dull moment. The best advice I can give is to be positive and use good judgement. The hardest part of the job is working weekends and closing shifts. It's not particularly hard, but it isn't convenient. The most enjoyable part f the job is the people and the fashion/discount.
Nordstrom Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Newark, DE – April 19, 2017
Honesty, I feel like if I worked at a Nordstrom at a different location, this probably would have been a better experience. However, management is terrible, they're rude, they don't practice what they preach, change scheduled hours randomly without informing you, and not only that, there is nothing about team and development worth convening yourself. However, holiday season and the paychecks are amazing and the only time I felt I could outweigh the cons (plural) with the pro (singular). There aren't even benefits until you have worked for the company for a significant portion of time, but its rare they will give you full time status to reach that goal quickly, unless you have disclosed medical info in which you need to meet it. You also need to keep a certain amount of hours to keep that.
Retail Sales (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – April 19, 2017
Nordstrom at City Creek is a premature store for the area. their inventory is slim to none and the transferring of goods is timely and inconvenient. The competitive nature of some sales associates leaves you hanging dry.
Sales Person Men's Sportswear (Current Employee) – Torrance, CA – April 19, 2017
Nordstrom is a great company to work for. If you are self motivated and are ambitious this is a place for you to make a good income. Being a team player is a huge attribute to have if you are looking to avoid strong encounters with co workers, as it is commission based pay. Management is always wiling to teach and help you grow. You just need to have patience and be willing to take advice.
Sales Associate/Stylist (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – April 19, 2017
I have worked at Nordstrom seasonally for 2 years now and working there has always been the highlight of my summer and winter breaks. The environment allows college students like me to work in a more professional retail environment while still having fun.
