Phony Managers in Corporate
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 28, 2016
Terrible place to work, too many clicks and many of the female managers only look out for their best interests. Back stabbing employees who only cover themselves. Racist/discrimination/environment.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Managers in Risk Management

You say for the people you meet
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 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.

Great place to grow and learn
Business Manager (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 24, 2016
You will advance if you work hard and show initiaive. Great place to start in retail or grow and gain skills. Management will promote you if you want to move throughout the company. Great values as a company as they always take care of their customers. I have enjoyed my time working for the company and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I loved my company
Server/Waiter (Current Employee) –  Annapolis, MDJune 23, 2016
I moved and had a long commute.I continued to work at my location, driving 80 miles a day. It's an amazing company to work for with wonderful people and fantastic customers. I know every company has bad apples but overall Nordstrom is a great place that I can only recommend to new hires, anyone in school or looking for a place they can really grow as a person and find new networks would do well to start here. As a server you can get an hourly wage, benefits and a guaranteed lunch break.
Pros
healthcare, breaks, fantastic people and customers

Yves Saint Laurent Business Manager (Current Employee) –  Bellevue, WAJune 23, 2016
Working for Nordstrom is a very exciting environment, great company with room to grow. The happiest part of my work day is when my customers look at themselves in the most positive way after spending time in the makeup chair.

Talent Acquisition Specialist (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAJune 22, 2016
Nordstrom's is a fun and laid back place to work. My only complaint is it is still very old school and it is hard to make a difference or change a process.

Good place to work that pays well.
Information Technology Specialist (Current Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAJune 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.
Pros
Above-average compensation
Cons
Long hours, mandatory overtime and job security fluctuates with retail ups and downs.

Fantastic company
SALES (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 20, 2016
Great people. Its about money and time but if your willing to sacrifice you can make great money. Management can be hit or miss sometimes bad sales associates become mangers thats the problem. If you get a good manger thats about sales and team not about the quick promotion you will have a fantastic time and love it. Hr not the best very corporate so mangers can make or break you even though your a good salesman they will "USE THEIR BEST JUDGEMENT TO RANK YOU" Mangers have little to much power in a sales goal customer service based business.
Pros
great money
Cons
micro mangement
