Nordstrom announced Tuesday that will hire approximately 11,800 part-time and full-time seasonal employees for its Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack stores, and for its fulfillment centers that support the Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack websites and HauteLook.
The Seattle-based retailer will hire 10,000 people for sales and stock positions at its 120 Nordstrom locations in the US and Canada and its 188 Nordstrom Rack stores in the US, 1,600 candidates will fill Receiving, Stock Control, Picking, Packing nd Inventory positions at fulfillment centers in Cedar Rapids, IA; Elizabethtown, PA; and San Bernardino, CA, 150 seasonal roles at HauteLook in Los Angeles in Member Care and Photo Studio operations, and approximately 100 people at Trunk Club facilities in Chicago in Stock, Inventory and Customer Experience.
"The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year for us and that means we need to hire additional people. We're looking to fill both sales and support positions with hardworking, passionate folks that are focused on taking care of the customer. We want to provide the best possible service experience, no matter how our customers choose to shop with us and that takes good people," said Jamie Nordstrom, president of stores, Nordstrom, Inc. "A lot of Nordstrom employees began their careers in a temporary or seasonal role. It's one of the best ways to get your foot in the door, gain some great experience and we hope, begin a career with our company."
Nordstrom revealed this month that it expects 20 percent fewer clearance days this year in comparison to past years. Despite the lowered projections, it still has to employ over 11,000 people to keep up with consumer demands.
