Nordstrom Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Nordstrom

Missing from the 8-K

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

No raises

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

paycuts are disguised as raises

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

Hourly raise updates?

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?

Nordstrom is doomed

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

It won’t end here... More to come...

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

How can we know if our store is closing?

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

What is plan for Northgate?

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?

Severance Package Distribution Ridiculous

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

Nordstrom in Norfolk to close

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

More layoffs in October?

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

Nordstrom LP restructure

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

Manhattan FLS

Opening right into a recession... this is going to be a spectacular disaster, isn’t it? Nice job, Nordstrom boys.

When can we expect more?

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

More layoffs coming

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

Poor Decision

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

40% of Management Positions Eliminated

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

More info on incoming layoffs

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

Starting Layoffs??

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.

More info on layoffs?

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

Layoffs at Nordstrom?

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.

137 to lose jobs as Nordstorm closes another store

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

Nordstrom Layoffs 2018

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.

It's not that bad.

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

The cuts continue into 2107

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

Elizabethtown and Visalia

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?

layoffs in pa

rumor has it layoffs could be coming to lancaster County. any truth?

Store closings? Corporate restructuring? Victory?

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 Layoffs 2017

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.
