What It’s Like Working at Nordstrom, Blog Updates, and Trend Show Bonuses

Working at Nordstrom has been pretty good so far. I’m still not quite sure how the job fits into my career as a whole, but it’s only been two months. So, we’ll see. The biggest con about the job is that, because I spend so much time at work talking about cosmetics, there’s little motivation left to do the same thing when I come home and try to work on the website. It’s definitely a struggle!

I’d also be lying if I said that the job isn’t all about productivity, namely SPH (sales per hour). The work environment encourages recommending expensive products, not really getting into meaty discussions, and getting your hands on as many customers as possible.  Not that our employees are all manipulative and gold diggers. On the contrary, most are well-meaning and genuinely like their jobs. It’s just that the environment perpetuates the existing cycle of misinformation, which does compel me to keep doing what I’m doing. But I admit that the sales-oriented attitude is starting to tempt me… and I don’t like that. I need all of your support to keep me pure haha.

There’s not much I can give back except to keep on writing!! MUST. DO. In terms of working at Nordstrom though, I can send you guys extra gifts with purchases. Also, I can make you guys samples of items you’re interested in trying. This will be especially helpful for those of you who don’t have access to certain brands or don’t have a large cosmetics retailer near your location.

We do have a big event coming up this Saturday (the 20th), and every brand will be having their own gift with purchase, along with Triple Points if you’re a Nordstrom Card Holder. See? That sounded just like a telemarketer… Bah. Anyways, if you and/or family and close friends are running low on a few items, feel free let me know before the end of Saturday. Just send an email here or to my work email <john.su@nordstrom.com> with what you’d like, along your shipping and payment information. I’ll then have them sent to you on Saturday. Note that I can only ship within the US unfortunately.

Here’s a list of brands and their gifts. Again, I can put in more stuff for you guys. Also, note that after I process your order, I will delete your credit information so there’s no chance of theft. Finally, for those of you winners of my most recent giveaway, I’m waiting until mid-October to send the prizes out to you guys because I’ll be attending a few mandatory beauty events, and will be receiving quite a few gratis items. Since I won’t be using any of them, I’d like to give some of them to you guys.

Okay, okay the list:

Bobbi Brown. Gift with ~$100 purchase.

***Oh, and of course, Lancome will be having their official GWP. Fragrances also come with a great faux-leather purplish-black clutch. Also, many of the more skin care-oriented brands like Kate Somerville, Dr. Dennis Gross, and hair care brands like T3, Living Proof, and Phyto will be having great GWPs, too. 

Stay tuned for the Toner post for the Ideal Skin Care Routine! It will be posted by Saturday! ❤
