"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."

"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."

"The pay was fair and there was potential for more."
-$13K (47%) less than average Nordstrom salary ($34K)
"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"
