Topics regarding layoffs at Nordstrom
They only hired people back to get them off unemployment. They will face a lay-off after the sale but coded as seasonal they will have to fight for unemployment. It’s a dirty dirty game
Hi there. What has happened to the visual departments? Have they been cut like Macys has done? Are associates and managers expected to change mannequins? Are windows being closed off? Thanks for any responses. I am a former visual stylist that... — read more
And how many more are they planning to cut? I know last month they cut more than 6,000 people. That's in just one month! And we know there have already been some layoffs this month and they are planning to have more. I think we are seeing the last... — read more
I hear Hautelook is doing great right now – anyone know if true?
If you’re a high school or college student that’s fine, but no grown adult who is working at Nordstrom as their primary full time job should be working for $12-$13 an hour, that’s ridiculous.
My last day was June 19. I’m getting anxiety as the unemployment CARES Act ends this week. I haven’t received anything from Nordstrom to sign. I saw that they FINALLY put in a WARN Notice to WA State (a bit late) on July 17. Anyone have information... — read more
I heard its true, they don't have enough cash to pay employees and will declare bankruptcy. Then they will shut down all the full line stores and focus just online and Rack stores. Is that true?
I am a former Nordstrom manager, never ever take a pay cut, unless you are absolutely desperate, and even then try your hardest to find a new job. The worse thing you can do in a job market is work for reduced earnings, because it will come back to... — read more
Ive worked in the full line Nordstrom stores down to the Racks and Ive never seen so much discrimination in my life especially from the managers and are encouraged by their regionals. My last store manager is very verbally abusive but its ok because... — read more
I’m a long time employee. I got laid off a month ago. I’ve been ghosted. I’m BROKE. I hope this company goes down in flames because they have left so many people Homeless and without a job. Bye Nordstrom! Who cares about your materialistic and... — read more
If any of you think you will get a penny in being laid off because the company is BROKE it is NOT happening. Nordstrom is making deals with the devil to get away with so much. SAD 😢
How can a company that boasts about being “family” just throw their very loyal and hardworking employees onto the street with hardly any notice? Then they are denying people their unemployment claims. I regret the decision to ever work there. Is... — read more
Previewed the Anniversary Sale this morning; the assortment looks pretty good. Some decent shoes and several nice Patagonia jackets. Almost 800 different styles across Men’s, a respectable effort. The website looked great on a new iPod touch... — read more

Among the retailers that CFRA says are “among the most highly leveraged retailers and face elevated bankruptcy risks” are Macy’s, Kohl’s, Dillard’s Inc. DDS , Nordstrom Inc. JWN and Victoria’s Secret parent, L Brands Inc. LB .
Not paying their leases (50%) by bullying and treating their laid off 6,000 employees like c-ap. Nordstrom family, you are OVER.
Finally got my severance – c-ya in the rear view Nordstrom!
I was not only a loyal customer but a long time employee who drank the Kool aid. I was laid off a month ago. I am saddened at how I have been ghosted and left hanging without any kind of clue. Disgusting! Buckle up Nordstrom Family, your are in for... — read more

Anyone know if Severance payments affect our unemployment benefits?
Anyone have information on the timeline of when we will be receiving our last paycheck, PTO pay out, severance, and medical payout. I did receive a check on 6/26 but I have no idea if this was from my last pay period or what? My last day was 6/19. ... — read more
Macy’s is cutting 4K jobs and it’s everywhere on the news. I checked their lay-off site and it’s a blood bath. How come Nordstrom cuts haven’t been announced publicly ? Isn’t that weird ? I wish the public would know what is really going on with... — read more

It looks like the next six months decide if Nordstrom continues as a going concern. I've already discussed that all of Nordstrom's cash-on-hand at the moment is borrowed, and that it is uncertain whether any additional debt will be offered in the... — read more

How have your store visits been if you’ve been to Nordstrom? How do you think we did with safety precautions compared to other retailers ?
Any recommendations on who is really hiring and actually engaging with their applicants? I highly suggest everyone using LinkedIn premium and paying the extra money. Will be helpful!
Anyone get more info on their final paycheck/severance package? There is supposed to be an email but all I've gotten so far is the warn notice and cobra info...
How is it that Nordstrom has received some of its best people in Technology from Starbucks, and, in return, sent them some its very worst, the true dregs? So are we done restructuring Nordstrom? $500 million in capex removed? I would love to see... — read more
Wanted to check if anyone knows the superstars of HR got lay-off news yet!
Clearly the ship will sink pretty fast favorites soared on layoffs not the talent in npg and nmg. Until leadership is overhauled meaning yes the brothers need to dig in and do more work to resolve. For example in npg a male verbally abusive... — read more
If you had all power and a well funded budget, waht would you do?
Somebody said this in another thread, but I think it bears repeating: there are plenty of companies that are doing really well right now and are hiring. My brother was laid off at the end of May and he already has a new job at Lowe's. And since not... — read more
Lay-offs done, we have discussed from outside how to fix Nordy or spend $ somewhere else. Time to say bitter sweet good byes?...
Mine is low, cannot concentrate with all the protests, looting, etc. Seriously, I wish they published the WARN and then lay-off is done. Life is on hold. Just sitting around and worrying.
