Topics regarding layoffs at Nordstrom
Macy’s worker here. Just wondering if Nordstrom still has commissions in shoes or other dept ? The big dump known as M has certain stores with no commissions or runners. Is it better at Nordstrom?
We should have comps soon on this store. What is the general opinion of it today? Is it an asset or a liability? Was it looted this past summer? I need to lunch in store 212, and soon!
Whats the scoop? Must be some good news...
What is the situation for H1-B contractors at Nordstrom these days? With jobs scarce in this recession, have you sent them all home? I know that I would be much more comfortable shopping at Nordstrom if I knew for sure that real Americans were... — read more
I heard from reliable person that somewhere between Sept 22 and Oct 6, Nordstrom will announce some big changes. Either bankruptcy is on the cards or spinoffs... I think they will use this opportunity to get out of paying the severance owed to... — read more
When I was at Nordstrom, I can remember the moment when I stopped thinking of Macy’s as a competitor. We had outclassed them as a retailer, with much higher sales per sq ft, a better online and customer experience, and superior integration to the... — read more
I was a cosmetics counter manager at Nordstrom. They informed me they would lay me off because of their decision to reduce their workforce due to Covid-19...they called be back and decided to offer me a position as a “seasonal employee” in... — read more
Anyone got the latest news on store closures in Oct?
Amazon launched their new luxury store today – bye bye Nordstrom. Have fun with Rack stores and 20% margins.
All’s quiet on the Pacific Northwest front as JWN stock dramatically tumbles to $12.33/share..... Anyone care to spill a bit of info?
A share of $JWN cost you $64 and change.
Big batch of SEC filings, lots of 4 disclosure forms and new 10-Q and 8-Ks: https://press.nordstrom.com/financial-information/sec-filings The named executive officers got fresh batches of stock options... — read more
Yo! Is everyone getting pay hikes? They are giving in tech. Just checking, things seem good, right?
About 10 counter managers in our store including myself were called and told that there was no hours available to bring us back into our previous positions despite being told back in March we would all be coming back. In one quick unexpected call you... — read more
Janitor is busy deleting posts and comments here. Don’t want the truth to get out
After the Q2 results, the loss is bigger than expected. I understand it’s a struggle to keep Nordstrom's business going, but the CEO should protect the workforce just as much as he is protecting and enhancing company's liquidity. The future is clear... — read more
Seems items are getting sold out before a lot of shoppers are getting a chance to shop, and (surprise) those lucky enough to check out with items are getting email "out of stock" cancelations later... I remember in a meeting listening to some guy... — read more
it actually makes a bankruptcy filing late this year even more likely. Online could easily exceed 50% of demand this quarter, maybe even 60%. This only makes the stores, with their leases and overhead (you), even more obvious a burden, to be... — read more
Hehehe. I feel positive.; Not sure about $$$ but the stock will end up 10% up. Just my gut feeling
"Since 2009 they never fail to mess up an anniversary item due to inventory system. I keep hoping one year they will fulfill my complete order correctly 😂 "
I’m an employee that got 9 days notice on an Illegal WARN Notice. I’m disgusted. I’m still waiting to understand what is going on. Nordstrom left my family with no health care or anything at all. No one wants your overpriced c-ap. Marshall’s is... — read more
I hear Hautelook is doing great right now – anyone know if true?
Macy’s is closing their 170,000 sq foot Water Tower location. The Magnificent Mile is dead, ruined by crime, and the local .gov won’t protect your business or your customers. It’s time to leave.
The Visual Dept at Nordstrom turned into privileged mean girls club. There was no diversity on my last team. A bunch of young spot brats. They hate older people. We had Tarot card readings from an x coworker who felt gifted every Friday from 1-3. ... — read more
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
Who’s got the dirty details on the 2nd quarter. Some of us can’t wait! Does anyone know Nordstrom’s next move once those earnings are released? Conveniently in the middle of anniversary. This is like watching a train on fire coming into the... — read more
Tried to access their site but hitting intermittent errors. What’s the latest? Did everyone get the severance checks? I didn’t
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
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
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
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
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
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
