I have been working at Nordstrom full-time

Pros

Management is very supported. They want you to do well and most will go out of their way to help you succeed.

Cons

A lot of petty issues in most departments. New people often steal sales unintentionally. Not a lot of direction on what your job entails, they kind of just stick you out on the floor after register training and let you figure it out on your own.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop playing favorites.

    I worked at Nordstrom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Loved majority of my associates. Had a run in with a shark. Stood my ground and she backed off.
    Liked the discount and dealing with the customers.

    Cons

    Sales pressure never ends! 3 pay periods below goal and your gone. Doesn't matter how long you have been there and how successful you've been.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales people need more time than 3 pay periods to build clients.
