Great place to work. Ever changing. Keeps customers safe. Got great online courses to keep us up to date monthly. Able to work with others and go the extra step to make light work
Great incentives, team mates and managers
Nordstrom was a nice place to work. I really enjoyed engaging with my coworkers. Everyone was nice and understanding. They created a work culture that is inclusive and nurturing.
Sometimes not enough hours available
A typical day at work on the weekends is very busy as well as some evening shifts during the weekdays. The jobs easy if you show up on time and get achieve your goals. The job is very enjoyable and fun and my peers i was working with and as well as my manager were very nice and helpful when I first started working.
Loved working for Nordstrom and believed in the company’s core values. Proud to be part of this fun loving epic family but sometimes challenging to meet all sales targets due to low traffic.
Ebar Americano, Nordstrom parking, HR and corporate in the building
Some shady employees
Building Services Management is terrible is all about kissing each other’s rear ends And giving each other’s hand jobs Nordstrom doesn’t care about their employees. Be ware do not work here as a Building services.
Nothing is good
Management is the worst thing you can imagine!!! Unprofessional , very dominant and disrespectful and dictatorial order’s , no good judgement only personal desires to feel very powerful and dominate using the fear and intimidation like a weapon! If you ones to have a good relationship with your manager you need to transform into a snitch or a informant guy to rich the peace and a good position! Dosed matters how much you work and the best stuff you delivery’s to customers! Everything is about the “best of the best management “!!!!! In the rest nothing doesn’t matter in reality!!! This happens in Calgary , Canada at the alterations workshop ! In general the company they are ok, but the real problem is local and will be nice to be fixed and remedy the real problem! Probably the superiors or or the general manager of the store doesn’t have ideas what is going on under her ruff! Nothing what I declared is only the true and nothing else !
My interview was fast and I got hired on the spot my manager was the nicest women I’ve met so far at Nordstrom Chinook people are competitive sometimes and managers will only schedule you if you’re somewhat close to them. You get taxed a lot but you get it back if they decide they don’t need you. Minimum wage starts at $16.50
Some bad management
Help us improve!
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
very shady experiences here; HR very close with management, lies told in interview, unfair pay - you lose your commission if a customer returns something a full year after purchasing it with no tags & damage.
discount on clothes
terrible hours - expected to work on days off if clients asked
If you love fashion and enjoy helping others find their sense of style, this is the perfect job for you. Only if you can ignore the unprofessional and toxic environment. Most salespeople are immature and lazy. The upper management lets bad behaviour slide for salespeople that have been there the longest. They just become enablers for more bad behaviour. I have seen at least half of my department cry due to employee disputes. There are no HR workers for Canadian employees anymore due to budget cuts (only a 1800 number to call).
I enjoyed some of my time with Nordstrom. I made wonderful friends and learned a lot from a few of the managers there..unfortunately none of them were my manager. They play favourites in who they promote and HR will not support you on any type of complaint you make.
Great discount, great pay, good sales teams
Upper manager sucks
0 work/life balance, under appreciative management who push you to your breaking points on a daily basis. Favouritism. Bad discount and benefits. Toxic.
Great co-workers, okay pay if you pushed yourself, luxury goods
long hours, no work/life balance, terrible benefits
Working at Nordstrom requires you to be outgoing and will push you out of your comfort zone if you’re shy. The managers are usually great and become your friends quickly. You are bound to meet many new people and share great friendly relationships with them here.
If you want to make money you have to be scheduled for the best hours, which students NEVER got. Be sure to work Sat/Sun/Mon as that's when sales are
If you want to make money you have to be scheduled for the best hours, which students NEVER got. Be sure to work Sat/Sun/Mon as that's when sales are best. The company rewards the sales people that screw others over, even though they claim to do otherwise.
Nordstrom will give you the tools and techniques you require to be successful, however, the onus is on you to apply them. The main issue with the company is that it pays in commission, and you can only achieve commission if you maintain your minimum sales per hour. This seems simple enough, but the problem is deeper, we had too many staff members on per shift to maintain our SPH. So, our commissions were very low, below that of minimum wage.
