Ala Moana Mall, Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Honolulu, HI – April 16, 2018
To call and create new clients I learned how to create your own customer base Management was hard to communicate with Workplace culture seemed very cliquey and selfish business mentality To stay motivated to promote a beauty product I did not believe in To be able to sell products that I love
Good work place, fun people, work hard and you will do great.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 16, 2018
I developed great communication skills while working at Nordstroms. Working in a sales/comission environment dealing with the general public is not easy, but may be very rewarding. You will meet many wonderful people and will build your network. The problem with Nordstrom is that, the retail world is thriving only in the online spectrum. People are not shopping in store anymore unfortunately, due to effortless and efficiency of online shopping.
A typical workday in my role like any job had its ups and downs. Benefits are well balanced for a Company and if you are lucky enough to acquire a position within the Company that you are passionate about Nordstrom may be the route for you.

Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Westchester, NY – April 15, 2018
Based on merchandise delivery and space availability for inventory Days that were instrumental in reaching and aligning with clients and customer base seemed to be most productive. Utilization of the technology and teaming with company’s culture and successes have been the most positive impact both for learning and customer satisfaction.
Sales Representative in the Trend Department (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania – April 15, 2018
Nordstrom puts a lot of faith in us to make good decisions and real relationships between their clients. You learn a lot about the decisions behind the layout of the store as well as the quality and precision of why they choose their products.
Denim Specialist/Salesperson (Former Employee) – Saint Louis County, MO – April 13, 2018
Very progressive place to work all inclusive black white gay lesbian the work place makes everyone feel at home and welcomed only requirement is to enjoy fashion! Typical day starts differently depending on your selling position your schedule is primarily chosen by where you rank in your department #1 usually opens and etc. Making relationships with customers to get them to come back and make more sales with you . The hardest most aggravating part of the job is their return policy because it is commission based you get paid by your sales if a person returns an item of regardless of reason they take there commission back which makes it hard to determine your checks. Most enjoyable part is that you meet people from every walk of life that you may not meet under other circumstances. They do like to promote from within so advancement is quite a possibility with many avenues to do that.
flexible schedules and possibility for advancement
Special Occasion Dress Sales (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 13, 2018
What impressed me most about working at Nordstroms was the way they treated employees. If you were willing to put in the time and effort you got rewarded. For my work in the department and meeting and exceeding my sales goals I was awarded: • Named Nordstrom “All Star” in November 2017 • Achieved Gold Pacesetter for exceeding sales goals. • #1 Dress Salesperson for the entire company of Nordstrom
Although a fancy lunch, getting up on stage to receive an award, all felt good, the warm fuzzy. They did not add to my financial compensation. This was frustrating and put me in the mind and action of seeking more financially sustainable employment.
Great benefits, departmental discounts etc...
No real way to easily navigate your financial growth

Barista (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – April 13, 2018
I enjoyed working as a barista at the Ebar/Nordstroms. My manager was super understanding about my anxiety and always made sure I was doing ok. The pay was really good for the 20ish hours we all received. My coworkers were some of the best I ever worked with and I miss it there very much.
2 free beverages for Ebar employees on sbift, and normal Nordstrom discount. We got to take food we were throwing out home, and thats how alot of us got 3 meals a day.

Project Lead, Infrastructure (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 13, 2018
Worked in their HQ near Pike Place Market, so it was an awesome location and views were forever. Distinctive culture compared to other big Pacific Northwest companies I've worked, at, fun and upbeat. Structure lacking in many areas, I got the impression that management preferred it this way to promote an ad-hoc culture. Leadership very customer-focussed but people seemed suspicious of favoritism, and quite a few promotions I observed did not make a lot of sense. Technology was pretty good, and loved their store discounts.
office environment, work location, upbeat feel all day long
odd choice for promotions, some troubling personalities in key positions
