Nordstrom

Logistic Processor

June - August 2019 • Las Vegas, NV

What I liked

I learnt the skills of the behind the scenes side of a retail store. Preparing for the anniversary sale was like prepping for a huge event, so it was cool to play a useful role in the function of that. I liked my supervisor and the people I worked with.

What I wish was different

It was great! Wish it lasted longer. Though, there still is the option to work in the winter holiday months.

Advice

Going in, you'll be learning a lot of new skills really fast. Expect something new everyday. Everything takes a bit of adjustment and getting used to it all may be challenging at first.

Logistics

June 2019 • Bethesda, MD

What I liked

I like being behind the scenes. Fulfilling orders, walking around the entire store. You get to meet people from different departments. I love not being confined to one work area. You get a first look at the supplies before their sold.

What I wish was different

I wish I started earlier than I did. And as being part of a team that probably works harder than any other department, we should have longer than 30 minutes for a lunch breaks; seeing as though floor workers get an hour.

Advice

If this isn’t your life’s work, enjoy yourself, do your job, and don’t stress over the customers.

What I liked

Hours worked with my schedule and good pay. Worked with great people and work wasn't too hard.

What I wish was different

Lots of standing in moving and sometimes had to work mandatory overtime.

Advice

I would not suggest taking 2 summer classes on top of this job. I tried juggling all these things and was successful at it, however it took away from my leisure time and I got extremely burnt out by the end of the summer. This is a good job if you want a lot of hours with good pay. This is a great seasonal position for any college student!
