      Pros

      Great atmosphere and great people to work with and meet. Great company to work for that allows you to move up.

      Cons

      Competitive and money driven. All they cared about was sales and making more money. Forced employees to contact customers and write letters to them which seemed creepy.

      Pros

      Coworkers were very friendly Opportunity to move up within the company Good health benefits Fun atmosphere

      Cons

      Found management to be very cliquey and condescending to the sales staff. Lots of young women as managers thinking they are above everyone as Nordstrom managers. Discount could be much better only 20% Do not give good online selling tools in Canada and just want everyone to create an Instagram but with such little support on that if you don’t necessarily know how to sell on there.
