Buying offices: they own you. They expect you to work 10-11+ hour days because of the work load. Management also has no life so they expect you not to either. Not many women in leadership have children and if they do they are relatively absentee, so they do not understand the need for flexibility. Compensation does not warrant the demanding workload either.

Great benefits. Exciting and motivational people to be around. Potential to be stressful for mothers with young kids because pay is commission-based and long hours on the floor on your feet.

I've worked here for over 35 years and in leadership for over 20 of them. It is like a family away from home. Everyone helping each other to get the job done and keep our customers happy.

I have worked for Nordstrom for over 20 years and while this is not a job for everyone, it has worked out very well for me. I have held many positions within the company, which is what makes it so attractive. You are able to advance to any position in any location.

Work life balance is non-existent. If you have a family, re-think working in this field. You are expected to work holidays with no time in-between. When you grow into management you are expected to work 6 days a week during events or high season - with no extra compensation. Men are promoted through the operations divisions quicker then women. However, a majority of sales managers are female.

    Work life balance is non-existent. Some depts promote women more rapidly, while others lean towards men.
