    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nordstrom is an incredible company with amazing benefits. If you treat it like your own business and take your job seriously you will advance and cultivate a strong clientele. This job has 6 figure earning potential for those who really work at it and go where the money goes (meaning try to work in luxury if you understand the business and value and appreciate the product). Take pride in the work you do and you will go far with Nordstrom!

    Cons

    Assistants get paid very little and are assigned a lot of work making it nearly impossible to sell (which they are encouraged to do to pad their checks) It can be hard to advance if you have a difficult manager, you need managerial support to advance or move anywhere. I had a rough time early on trying to transfer to a busier store because my manager liked me and didn’t want to let me go!
