Nordstrom to hire over 28,000 employees for the holidays
Nordstrom is the latest retailer to announce massive holiday hiring plans including the addition of 28,600 seasonal and regular employees in both the U.S. and Canada.
The retailer will hire for its Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack stores and customer care teams across north America, as well as its supply chain facilities in the U.S.
“Our employees play a critical role in delivering a festive and joyful holiday experience— from picking the best gifts to fulfilling every order, our teams help provide the best possible experience as the gift-giving destination for our customers. The holidays are the busiest time of the year, and we need your help to make this season a merry one,” Nordstrom said in a news statement.
Nordstrom said it offers comprehensive benefits for its employees and is offering several incentives for new employees.
At Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack stores hourly and overnight employees will receive premium pay and new employees are eligible for up to $650 in incentive pay. Meanwhile, Nordstrom is offering supply chain employees in the U.S. premium pay as well, and up to $2,500 for new employees.
Other advantages include competitive pay, a 20 percent merchandise discount, employee charitable match and volunteering program, while eligible employees can also receive medical coverage, an employer-matched retirement plan and much more.
The retailer equally noted that last holiday, many of its seasonal hires converted to regular roles. Nordstrom will host national hiring events for open roles in Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack store on October 22 or October 29, and at supply chain facilities on October 16 or October 28.
“We always work to make Nordstrom a place where our people can build long-term, rewarding careers. The environment and relationships we build with our employees play a pivotal role in making Nordstrom a place where every employee is welcomed, respected, appreciated and able to be themselves,” Nordstrom added.
Earlier this month, Canadian retailer Hudson’s Bay announced plans to hire more than 5,000 seasonal and permanent associates across Canada for the upcoming holiday season.
