Family owned retailer and great recognition
Northeast Regional Loss Prevention Manager (Former Employee), Paramus, NJJanuary 7, 2015
This is a company that has been in business for over a century. It is still family owned and publicly traded. The online and off price business has steadily grown over the last decade or so. The work life balance is difficult at this company, but management has always been great.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), san francisco, caJanuary 6, 2015
Pros: 1 hour lunch
Cons: you have to be strong minded to deal with customers.
I work in the shoe department. It's a fun place to work at and since your paycheck is of commission, you make a lot of money. However, sometimes you have to deal with stock assignments that mess with your sales per hour. Also, depending on the manager, they are usually flexible with the hours.

Sales Person (Current Employee), Braintree, MAJanuary 2, 2015
While constantly interacting with customers, I not only sell shoes but, I build meaningful relationships and help them find exactly what they need for their day to day lives. Nordstrom is a great company to work for. They provide us employees with the skills and resources necessary to grow within their company. They love their employees and love their customers even more.

I learned the most amazing customer service skills at this job. Enjoyed all of my coworkers and have made long time friends here even with some of the clients. Management could have been a little less concerned about numbers and more concerned of the well being of their employees.
