    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.

    Pros

    Commission based so you have the chance to make a lot of money depending on how committed you are.

    Cons

    It is inwardly competitive so you have to compete against your teammates in order to get sales/customers. Also have to work most weekends because they are the busiest but that is just how retail is
