Great money, great benefits, organized work environment, super catty atmosphere
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 January 2017
When working for Nordstrom, you'll find it super organized and smoothly ran, from your department team to the Human Resources office. You will make good money if you treat your job seriously and if you are a full time employee you will even receive a very nice benefits package. The atmosphere however is super catty, in the restaurant and on the retail floor there is always petty drama, people arguing over guests and talking behind each others' backs, forming cliques and even subtle bullying. And in the regularly occuring store rallies and morning meetings, there is plenty of propaganda about how Nordstrom is the best company in the world and everything is rainbows and butterflies. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it just gets a little annoying when the upper management is so obviously faking the peppy happy attitude while letting the drama happen to openly in the backrooms, sometimes even joining in on it. But you won't see much of that unless you get more involved with the company.
They are very good with work life balance. This is a perfect job for part time students who don't mind what their coworkers might think about them behind their back.
Good money, good benefits, very accomodating
Abundant with petty drama
