Nordstrom has unbeatable benefits as far as holiday pay, health and dental insurance, profit sharing, stock options and tuition reimbursement. They really take care of their own--as long as you can sustain the unpleasant kitchen conditions.

Once you pass the orientation day for work in the cafe, you are no longer human. You are a robot, and you will follow orders no matter how questionable or stupid or ridiculous. You will follow all recipes to the letter, and will not deviate. You will not express one iota of creativity. You will portion everything out to 0.1 ounces exactly.
--Often they would make me take my break 90 minutes into my shift. Cooks have to double as dishwashers and prep cooks. Hours on the schedule are based on merit. You lose hours if you start making mistakes or slipping up. Everyday in the restaurant division you have to constantly give them reasons to keep you, or you will lose hours. This is a job, and nothing more. Everything is done to insulate the management from the line-level employees, creating a proletariat/bourgeoisie environment. This is very uncomfortable for the first year at Nordstrom, and every day I came to work I was filled with anxiety over my hours or what cuts they were going to make next.

The one thing about Nordstrom's hiring practice that I particularly dislike is discrimination. They may deny it, but I know it when I see it. Nordstrom "chefs" (ahem) are directed to keep their hours down, and they do this by finding the youngest "cooks" they can so they can pay less per hour. Cooks with over five years' experience can be replaced because that increases labor cost. I was directly discriminated against for this very reason, but I finally caught on. Despicable! Nordstrom values youthful appearances and beauty above all else, so if you are middle-aged looking for a job, you will find yourself quickly discriminated against. I basically waived my right to file a complaint with the EEOC because it would be such a waste of my time.

Management does not take advice, they give it and you are expected to follow orders without question. You need to listen to your line-level employees and give regionals a heads-up as to what is really going on.
