Layoffs at Cedar Rapids

Fortunately, I quit a few months ago. I wish luck to all who are affected to find new jobs as soon as possible. When I saw in the media that 231 people will be cut... that's scary! I don't think it will be any less stressful even for those who... —  read more 

System crash and payroll

With the system crash and sales updates are not happening how are we going to get paid? I know managers can’t say anything but our store manager is back talking about the situation making the stores employees so nervous. If they don’t officially say... —  read more 

Site down? Layoffs soon?

I thought Nordstrom had e-commerce figured out by now. I was just headed over to buy something nice. This stuff should be highly-available. “Our site hit a snag, but we're fixing it Please try again in a little while. In the meantime, you can... —  read more 

Still cutting hours?

It seems like our department is so short staffed since the great anniversary sale… NOT. Some departments seem to be normal in hours, ours are kept to bear minimum then minus 2 shifts. Are other people feeling the crunch? Remember in handbook we are... —  read more 

Q2 earnings

Stock briefly had a 19-handle AH. Earnings decent, forward guidance not so much. The problem is, the Swedes are honest businessmen, investing in their stores, not financial engineering. Is everyone back in the office? Anyone? Layoffs over Zoom? —  read more

Store Closures?

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 

A pig in a tuxedo

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!

Not worth the effort

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 

I'm drowning in work

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
