    I have been working at Nordstrom full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Easygoing work environment - Great staff leaders, opportunities for promotions - The only uniform is the green shirt, you can pair with a nice jacket and shoes - 20% off employee discount at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack

    Cons

    - No strict policies against customers, one employee standard may differ from another when it comes to accepting returns - Very busy location on weekends, becomes crowded and messy

    I have been working at Nordstrom part-time

    Pros

    - Wonderful managers who actually can help you grow within the company, if interested - work/life balance - co-workers are all friendly (depending on location) - no "at work" stress, laid back but still fast paced and continuous amounts of work to do - talk to nice customers (1 out of 8 customers tend to be not as nice, but nonetheless you get great customers) - very social and interactive position - employee discount (works in Nordstrom Full-Line Store as well) - get to see what is heavily discounted before most customers

    Cons

    - a few moments of micro-management, but depending on who is the MIC that day - towards holidays it can get extremely busy - the uniforms can be more appealing
