    I worked at Nordstrom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The money is great if you sell. You have to sell around $3,000 a day because 1/3 of your sales end up getting returned. You are recognized as a star if you hit Pacesetter.

    Cons

    Other sales people steal your sales because your position is 100% commission.
