2.5/5stars
Nordstrom Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 16, 2018
Typical day at Nordstrom included restocking your department, helping customers with items and providing customer service with a smile. You start by restocking items. Some slow days, gets very busy around holidays. RETURNNNN central and scammers galore so be careful when checking out customers to check ID. High turnover rate and some managers show favoritism which affects others. Managers team up together so it turns to a managers vs salesperson word so be careful. As long as you're kissing everyone's butt, you have a job! Yay!
Pros
Discount, Friendly people
Cons
Favoritism, management

Great exercise, friendly employees, tons of human connection
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ 85016November 16, 2018
A typical day would include walking around the store dozens, if not hundreds, of times, but although tedious, it was time consuming so shifts which were usually 10 hours, passed by fast. The employees were fun to be around and there's never a second where you can't talk to anyone. This was a very much "people person" job.
Pros
Breaks are 1 hour, great coworkers
Cons
Long shifts

Decent Job
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHNovember 16, 2018
This was a great PT job for my needs at the time.Excellent money for the number of hours I worked. Downside: Mangers tend to be very young and inexperienced and make critical mistakes than a more seasoned person.

Salesperson (Former Employee) –  Pleasanton, CANovember 15, 2018
Nordstrom treats their employees very well. I gained a great knowledge on how to provide great customer service. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping individuals find an amazing outfit, and seeing them feel good about themselves.

Fun, but a bit stressful sometimes.
Service Experience Representative (Current Employee) –  FloridaNovember 15, 2018
The title says it all. If you’re a hard worker, you’ll be expected a lot more than other workers who work poorly. Other than that, it’s pretty good. You’ll have paths to move up.
Pros
10 min paid breaks, 20% discount
Cons
Prepare to deal with rich and snotty, even at a discount store

Coached "out" of business
Business Manager Chanel Cosmetics (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WANovember 15, 2018
If you do not fit the characteristics of what Nordstrom wants then they will slim down your hours till you have to quit because you don't make enough. They also told me several times they would give me more hours one week and less some weeks so they didnt have to pay me medical insurance! HORRIBLE
Pros
lots of make-up
Cons
no breaks, cut hours, lack of management

Esthetician/Makeup Artist (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXNovember 14, 2018
Management was the biggest opportunity in my department. Enjoyed my day to day tasks but the pressure was intense. Too many events in my opinion does not make the events special.

Over all a Great company
Customer Care Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IANovember 14, 2018
Over all Nordstrom is a great company to work for sadly they have one bad seed. A typical day would be checking emails reviewing follow ups, checking your stats from the day before, reviewing your quality to see if you had any calls monitors, reading cstats from customer's, and logging into all of your systems, once you have done all of this you would take calls for the rest of the day. typical calls are tracking packages for customer's placing orders and helping customer shop for specific items.
Pros
20% discount
Cons
bad management without being able to change supervisors
