Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – January 17, 2018
Nordstrom is a great company. It kind of feels like running your own company the more you sell the more profit you and the company makes. Great work environment. Overall, many great opportunities to grow within the company.

Nordstrom is a good place to work. The managers here are very accommodating of schedule restrictions and time off requests. In the Ebar, the climate is very relaxed and everyone is friendly. Pay is competitive, there is a very generous discount for employees, and the benefits are good if you qualify for them. There are opportunities for advancement, but they are somewhat rare and very often require relocation.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – February 8, 2018
A typical day depending on which department I worked in could vary and also depending on which store and region I worked in could also vary. There was lots of turn over for different reasons. A very structured workplace.
Well named luxury retailer
structural changes did not allow for advancement as quickly
SERVER (Current Employee) – Brea, CA – February 8, 2018
Ive been here for 6 years and it was ok. It paid my bills and the food is good. The pace is quick and the work is stressful. I would recommend this to someone else, but it was just too long for me to be there for 6 years.
Logistics Manager (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – February 7, 2018
I love Nordstrom. It has been my home for over 10years. There is lack of advancement because I am not currently willing to move out of state. They have an open door policy, the work place is comfortable and the discount is amazing.
Customer Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Georgia – February 7, 2018
Nordstrom is a wonderful company to work for. It is a great starting opportunity for anyone interested in learning about a retail career and a great place to grow and learn. The company works on an inverted pyramid concept so they promote from within.
The are very open to suggestion and love people who think outside the box.
If you have an opportunity to apply and you love the idea of having fun at the same time you work hard this is a great company for you.
Barista (Former Employee) – Escondido, CA – February 7, 2018
One of the reasons I loved this job is because I was constantly productive throughout the whole shift. The customers for the most part were extremely patient and nice during our busier times, and the other nordstrom employees who came out on their breaks were nice and friendly. I had consistent hours in this job which was the best part about it, it never went down to 10-15 hours like all my other jobs have. Overall, it was a great environment with a wonderful accommodating manager. Also, the HR person was always helpful when I had questions about the benefits part of the job.
Sales (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – February 7, 2018
A typical day at work would consist of being around all types of people and getting a break every few hours. You learn how to efficiently communicate . I learned that the customer is always right and everyone will sometime have a bad day. The management was good and fair. They were flexible with me whenever i needed time off. The hardest part of the job was not letting those few bad customers ruin your whole entire day. The most enjoyable part of the job was coming to work a great bunch of guys and girls each and every day.
Commissioned Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – February 7, 2018
I would classify a typical day at work as energetic. I learned to strategically crush my competition with poise and grace. My superiors were the most supportive I had experienced at that time. The work culture for me was likened to a new aged, posh hipster convention. The hardest part about working there has to be, competing against your amazing colleagues. The most enjoyable portion of the entire experience, for me, are my relationships cultivated with loyal customers and colleagues.
Service Experience (Former Employee) – Rockaway, NJ – February 7, 2018
