American departmental store chain Nordstrom will hire approximately 11,400 seasonal employees to serve its customers in the upcoming holiday season.
These employees will either be deployed at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack stores, or support the distribution centres for the Nordstrom.com, Nordstromrack.com, HauteLook and Trunk Club stores.
Nordstrom store president Jamie Nordstrom said: “During the busy holiday season, we need to add great people to our teams who are excited to help us serve Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Hautelook and Trunk Club customers.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to get your foot in the door with the company, take care of customers, gain some great experience and possibly, start a career with us.”
About 9,500 people will be appointed in sales and stock positions in 123 Nordstrom stores in the US and Canada, and 213 Nordstrom Rack stores in the US.
Another 1,900 people will be employed to support the company’s stores and its ecommerce business across all shifts in receiving, stock, picking and packing sections at its fulfillment centres.
