      Pros

      Hospitality staff including bartenders, servers, and cooks, all get the same benefits as the rest of Nordstrom staff. This was really nice during the pandemic. The clientele that eats out at Nordstrom is also nice to deal with.

      Cons

      The hospitality staff is often treated as less important than retail staff members.
