Featured Review

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Nordstrom part-time

Pros

Through Nordstrom's extensive training, I learned valuable customer service skills that have helped me excel in multiple positions in my career. The dedication they give each employee is outstanding.

Cons

I encountered some pushy sales associates who would take credit for some of my sales. Other than a select few, the team is incredible and supportive.
