My day consisted of helping kids find the shoes they want. I would have to get my get and keep my own client base, so when they return they only ask for me. working here help you understand the importance of repeat customers.I believe this job was very enjoyable especially getting to meet the whole family and helping them choose gifts for each other.
great place to work friendly customers.
I moved to Los Angeles and could not find an opening
Customer Service Lead (Current Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – July 30, 2016
A day in the life of working at Nordstrom is coming into a bright atmosphere. You sit next to your peers and can get help when needed. The benefits are great for the most part, and have an okay 401K plan. The most enjoyable part was being around positive people, They had a site up just for Nordstrom Employees that allowed us to view all resources, procedures, and had good communication on changes.
Able to work a straight 8 hours without a lunch if desired, $20 an hour is really good.
My husband has better healthcare options through his work, so it would be nice to have Nordstrom replicate those benefits.
Fun place to work. Excellent customer service environment. Customers always come first!

I enjoyed working at Nordstrom but it does consume your time, not the place for you if you are in school! the goals are high and could be very stressful if you dont make them. Management is all young people and very immature.
Beauty Advisor (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – January 24, 2017
Nordstrom is a great company work for, their benefits are great, and they treat their employees wonderful. The company specializes in customer service, and that is a great tool to have for consumers that are shopping at the store.
Information Technology Specialist (Current Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – June 20, 2016
Good place to work that pays well. Management has an open door policy that is inviting to new ideas and concerns. Unfortunately this is still a retail job and layoffs can happen based on ups and downs of the retail market. Instead of hiring new staff during the busiest times of the year they instead force employees to work 6 and 7 day work weeks.
Long hours, mandatory overtime and job security fluctuates with retail ups and downs.
Loss Prevention Ambassador/Agent (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – December 1, 2016
Its very hard to have a set schedule for this type of job(Retail). Great company and great benefits. Hardest part of the job is not having a set schedule. My co-workers were great and overall I love this company.
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 28, 2016
The job can be fun and like any place what you make of it. You meet some great people and some not so great people but that and nepotism are everywhere. But like any big company no matter what they say you are just an employee and a dollar sign. The commission is hard especially when if a customer returns anything they deduct it from your sales. Well when the customers can wear and return anything they will, and you will have to take the hit for it when you sold the item like you were suppose to. You get a base salary but you have to sell to hit your own goals and you don't have much time for that. As the company evolves we'll see what happens. It use to be a great place to work.
Personal Stylist Assistant (Former Employee) – Troy, MI – January 16, 2017
GREAT PLACE TO WORK IF YOU'RE INTO FASHION! You'll make good connections and experience different kinds of people. Pay is above average for retail and benefits. Uplifting work environment. Family-oriented.
Gear Specialist/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – July 10, 2016
Such an amazing company to work for. They are involved in the community and give employees opportunities to donate to charities and to volunteer. They are incredibly inclusive and have been known to participate in PRIDE festivals/parades in various cities. They promote from within and pride themselves on investing in their employees' human capital. They have an open door policy that makes it easy to ever bring up concerns if they should arise. They pay well and have fabulous benefits. All around amazing company. I loved working for Nordstrom and would definitely go back again.
