Nordstrom is coming off of a terrible earnings release, which has tanked the stock and has the analyst community deeply pessimistic on the future of Nordstrom. Overlooked in all of this is the great success of two critical initiatives in the... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Nordstrom
Do you sit in a cube, working on a computer all day? Are you paid more than $100,000 for doing this? Does struggling Nordstrom really need 1,000+ expensive people to run these IT systems? Are there really new features to "write" for mobile apps, the... read more
Employees just found out no raises through an email . So disappointing to many of us who had great performance reviews made are events huge increases on the year and have been with the company almost 20 years. Nordstrom is not the wonderful company... read more
The recent change in the structure may look like a pay raise. But look at the recent changes more closely. For instance, the top tier for a security ambassador was 14.80 now it is 14.50. The managers were not fully aware of the changes, and most... read more
Managers were supposed to talk with employees about hourly employee wage updates but haven’t done so yet. Any insight as to what they are?
Retail is dying, and the FLS is the soul of the company. It cannot survive as a website, a mere fulfillment channel. Nordstrom was always about the shopping destination experience, quality merch, a nice restaurant, the best sales staff. The stock... read more
The way they cut was very pick and choose in my store. Pretty much the SM took advantage of this situation and kept the favorites and let go of the rest. I have Worked so hard for this company and I didnt deserve this. A lot of people didn’t deserve... read more
Is there any way to know if Nordstrom is planning to close my location? I'm asking because three people left in the past two weeks - one manager and two of his best buddies, which makes me worried that they might know something we don't. Am I just... read more
JCP a goner. Macy’s is bailing early. Store #2 has always been lackluster, but it’s dear to the family. Has Nordstrom committed to keeping this store open through the redevelopment of the mall?
I am one of the DMs severanced. Been with the company 1 month short of 5 years. Had no negative coaching in my entire history and of course no tangible information was given as to why I was severanced versus offered the a DM role. Getting my... read more
Another one bites the dust... Seems to be a pattern lately... A major department store is closing in MacArthur Center -- and it's a big loss for the mall. Nordstrom announced Friday's closing back in January. It opened for business in Norfolk 20... read more
I’ve heard that they want to let the most recent restructure “blow over” for a bit before doing another restructure in October. Anyone have any insight to this? If so, the holidays working here will be a disaster. So much for “improving customer... read more
So LP has been restructured again in 2019 at Nordstrom. Smaller Rack stores are down to one ambassador and an LPM, any more ambassadors will be laid off, if not already. The person with the most seniority stays. But it seems the Security Ambassadors... read more
Opening right into a recession... this is going to be a spectacular disaster, isn’t it? Nice job, Nordstrom boys.
I read somewhere that downsizing that started at Nordstrom in March will continue through April. Do we have any indications on when in April we can expect more cuts? Or do we have to worry and stress the entire month not knowing when the ax is going... read more
Any truth to this? So this affected managers with more years under their belt. Why is that? Company trying to keep fresh,new blood? Assumption that the newer the manager is to their role, the younger they might be? [Which isn't true... Age... read more
This was only the beginning of the restructuring. I just wish we had some more info and knew what to expect. It's not going to be fun having to stress over what's going to happen without having any idea when and what that is... If anybody knows more... read more
I'm a salesperson at a full-line store and I think the manner in which the company approached the DMs/assistants was horrible and unprofessional. Very frustrating. Company seems to be headed south. Would not be surprised to see another major... read more
The way this was told to managers is unacceptable. Managers who have give this company 14+ years are given one day to make a choice of whether to take a sales associate job or a severance package is a big slap in the face. This is pathetic... read more
It is 100% confirmed. Cutting their management by 40%. Many good managers are not staying. It is really Nordstrom's loss. It is super sad especially since they are getting major tax cuts this year since the corporation tax rate is basically cut in... read more
In my location, only managers were affected. Is this the situation everywhere?
They are doing public announcement towards the end of the week from what I've heard. 30-40% of management to be "restructured" (aka "your position no longer exists") at least that's how all of the stores we have friends in have been so far. Doesn't... read more
Yes, the store-level IT techs were told they were going to be laid off, their managers too. Roughly 50+ positions... eliminated. They were alerted to the company-wide decision a few months back... and as of early February 2019 the layoffs were... read more
Hearing consistent "rumors" about restructuring at the stores and some in corporate. A few friends said they already had some people let go. Would be nice to know if it has been confirmed.
Not many layoffs in 2019. Expect that to change in 2020 after the NY flagship Women’s store opens in the fall of 2019. Is it true that next year will be mostly safe for the majority of us? It would be nice to know for sure and be able to relax at... read more
Nordstrom has also had a major security breach .Employee and former employee information has been compromised.Social security numbers bank account info and more.The outside contractor the obtained the sensitive information has been arrested.Nordstrom... read more
This has been known for a while, but in case somebody missed it, Nordstrom is closing its Providence Place location at the start of next year. About 180 people are being laid off as a part of it... read more
Do you predict that there will be Nordstrom Layoffs in 2019?
Store level IT folks are being let go and the work contracted out as of September 2018.
Coworkers keep talking about layoffs coming soon particularly at the store level as Nordstrom tries to become more of an ecommerce company than a brick and mortar retailer. https://www.teamblind.com/article/Should-I-be-worried-about-layoffs-5anTwKKK
It seems that Nordstorm is not immune to issues that have been plaguing retail after all. Salem store is closing and 137 people are losing their jobs in the process. And from the look of it, it is only the beginning... read more
this is gonna hurt even more. the more the delay it, the more hammering from the investors we'll get - the sooner the better - let's do this and rip off the band aid.
I left a few years back right now - but still have good friend over there working, happily - now I am hearing that you may have job cuts in Seattle.
The only store closed in 2016 was Horton . Nordstrom had other full line in San Diego. meanwhile Macy's and Saks closed stores. Neiman Marcus should be doing closing of stores in 2017 . they are 4.9 Billion in debt on 4. 8 billion in sales. whoops... read more
And you thought it'll not get any worse here. We've all been mistaken, things will accelerate down... Nordstrom is laying off more than 100 people nationwide, including 30 in Seattle. The 106 positions being cut are all customer-care specialists, who... read more
How busy is the new fulfillment center in Elizabethtown? Do you think it was needed? The Visalia, CA, fulfillment center is shelved at the moment, to be opened in 2020 at the earliest. Do you think it will be needed?
rumor has it layoffs could be coming to lancaster County. any truth?
The Limited just bit the dust, and Macy's is closing 100 stores. Nordstrom is much more selective in its locations for its FLS, so when one closes, like the two in Portland in early 2015, it's like trimming a bonsai tree, minor adjustments, cutting... read more
Nordstrom Inc. (NYSE:JWN) insider Michael G. Koppel sold 87,257 shares of the firm’s stock in a transaction dated Tuesday, December 13th. The shares were sold at an average price of $58.34, for a total value of $5,090,573.38. Following the... read more
If you think about things in a rational way (not many people can do that - look at the latest election results), all business problems may lead to job cuts and reductions in Seattle.
