And, if down (as I suspect), do you think there will be layoffs. Thoughts??????
If you dare disagree with the herd you will be silenced or canceled. The best thing to do is to keep quiet and nod your head affirmatively until you can find a way to get out of here. I can't claim that this is true for all locations, but it sure is... — read more
And holy cr-p is it a nice feeling to be appreciated for a change! I had forgotten what it feels like and it feels good! If you're not one of the as----e there you should really get out... now.
I really thought that after the worst period of the pandemic, things would get much better here. I guess I had too high of expectations and now I am disappointed. Anyone else who expected much more from 2022 in Nordstrom?
Pretty dead in Seattle...
I always was in a bit of disbelief, (after closing 16 stores in 2020 and the trajectory of online sales) Nordstrom was going to open a new full-line store (even if it was only a relocation). I understand the reason to an extent, the store is oak park... — read more
I feel sorry for the new hires because they seem lost. Some of them have the will to work, but they do not have enough instructions on how and what to do. I always try to help them, although I find it difficult to find time for it since I am... — read more
Working here used to mean good pay, solid benefits, and proper scheduling. None of those three things are still true, yet I'm expected to work as hard if not harder? Why would I? Give me proper pay, bring back the benefits you took away from us, and... — read more
What a laugh. A freakin' laugh!!
Did I remember correctly that they only had hiring events for the holidays for seasonals. If they're having a hiring event now they must be really desperate for people like Macy's having a hiring event every month LOL.
Most of the people applying here now are the ones who have no other options. If even those who have no other options stay here for less than a month, then the situation is really worrying. It is not unusual that the new hire does not appear after... — read more
I’d say especially if your market has too many stores for the area, watch for a closure. Boston, for example has far too many full line locations and they cannibalize each other’s sales. I could see them closing Northshore as its sales are absolutely... — read more
Promoting from within... what a joke!! Those workers that are truly deserving are shuffled to the back of the line, so a new hire that fits their ethic profile is hired... and leaves in 10 days. What a joke!
Why is order fulfillment so pokey in the web store? Site looks good, I noticed recent changes, Nordstrom is not letting the carpets get too worn, and the LAF are good. So I ordered something, something nice. Right away I get a confirmation... — read more
Sometimes I wonder if they are even aware that especially now, when we have huge inflation, no one wants to work to burnout levels for such a small pay. The only reason I'm still here is because I still haven't received another offer. The irony... — read more
Somebody mentioned potential layoffs after the quarterly results. Since the results were good (better than expected), should we assume that the plans for layoffs were nixed?
It would be great if someone also took a few coworkers with him / her after some time has passed since leaving this company. Admittedly, I don't know anyone who did that here. I don't even know what's Nordstrom's policy regarding this?
I don't have time to go to the bathroom because it's constantly a "go, go, go." We don't have enough people and management isn't even trying to do something about it. Did they secretly give up and are just seeing how long they can last with as many... — read more
Dangerous time for JWN FTEs, the dead time after the holidays. Projects and teams can still be regrouped and remotivated by summer.
Anyone's guess how long after Q4 results are announced?
Can’t take it anymore.
Just got a letter about NPG week and how as a valued ex-employee I'm still eligible for 40% off NPG items... uh, no thanks.
Among my coworkers, the most experienced is a colleague who has been with this company for about 10 years. Here I read the post of someone who says that he has been at Nordstrom even longer than that, 20 years. WOW! I am speechless. How is... — read more
Are there any union Nordstrom. Now more than ever it is needed. There are no full time employees except for managers. All associates are variable employees meaning you work when the business calls for it. We have none of the benefits the management... — read more
I am overjoyed because I can finally leave NS! I got a much better offer, but the search for a new job took months. And just when I thought I would have to stay here for a while, I got an offer. I plan to give notice tomorrow, but I wonder if it's... — read more
December we were getting reports of single individuals getting Covid daily. Now it’s multiple people daily. They have done nothing to follow the states mandates of mask wearing. Leaving it up to the employees who believe this is real and want to... — read more
Do we think any store closures will be happening in 2022 or 2023? FLS seems to be doing okay at best, however with the majority of online sales coming online and the company bring dr-g down by Nordstrom rack, what are the odds?
Fun fact: this company’s high-level execs that are responsible for shipments ALWAYS drop the ball. Then they lower-level workers clean up and chase after their mess. This is 100% correct. But what gets me even more is the fact that they're not the... — read more
So the Nordstrom family is trying to sell the rack. Thoughts?
Any insight on that big flagship mistake? With 310,000 people fleeing NYC last year and Omi-cron this Christmas. The sales have to be "great' as tony the tiger would say..
On track to make plan and get bonuses? 🎄 💰
Sorry, guys. Best of luck.
Am I the only one who's scared of going to work these days? I'm petrified we'll be targeted by one of those so-called "flash mob robberies." I have no idea how I'd react in a situation like that. I suffer from anxiety as it is, this is just bringing... — read more
Exactly. No one takes this company seriously anymore and does not want to work here. It can be considered a success if Nordstrom manages to keep an employee for a month. Is it happening in your store too that new hires leave after only a few... — read more
How is your store handling customers and masks. Mine it’s only suggested even with state mandates. We are told not to say anything. Last week so many without them making unsafe for employees but also other customers.
Nordstom has hit the rock bottom. The company has been on a downward spiral for many years and I think it is too late now for any positive changes. If management really wanted to make those changes, they should have done it a long time ago. Or... — read more
Earnings today look like it's gonna be a bloodbath -- the mood must be dire.
I work in Logisitics at a large FLS store and we were all just told we are getting 13, consecutive trucks the week before and leading up to Thanksgiving, in order to rush XMAS product into stores before DAT. They then told us that meant we have to... — read more
