"Payments were based on commission. In order to maximize the commissions made, it was ideal to use suggestive selling techniques. Sales Reps began on the floor making 45% commission on each item they sold. As you move up to Sales Lead positions, it increased to 65%. Assistant Managers increased to 75% and management received 85% plus departmental and store wide bonuses per quarter."

"In commission based sales you fluctuate pay check to pay check, but overall you get a better opportunity for exceeding what you would as an hourly sales associate. Having the base hourly rate keeps you from ever making less than minimum, but commission helps you go way beyond what you could at a capped hourly."

"The pay for a Nordstrom salesperson isn't fixed at $10/hour. The pay is actually determined through commission: the more a salesperson sales, the more they are paid. This is great because the harder I work, the more I can be paid. The problem is, commission doesn't require skill and dedication alone, but there is a level of luck involved. This makes commission a poor choice in judging employee performance. With that being said, some days I'm paid what I deserve, on others I'm underpaid"
+$6K (16%) more than average Nordstrom salary ($34K)
"Since I work on 100% commission I have the ability to control what I make. The more I sell, the more money I make, so it's all on me. The harder I work, the more I earn. The only aspect is that I cannot control the returns. I do believe that we could be paid more of a commission percentage."
+$8K (21%) more than average Nordstrom salary ($34K)
"The pay was fair and there was potential for more."
