Nordstrom Complaint - Shameful Place To Be Hired To, A Work Scam
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Nordstrom being considered one of the best companies to work for has to be a paid for advertisement, unless they are referring ONLY to employees involved in new store openings and new-hire orientation. Nordstrom does a lot of new store openings and spectacle new-hire orientations, so those people have secure jobs, but for those who apply to work in these new stores, your job is NOT secure. The public is being fooled into thinking Nordstrom is creating jobs. They do these bid production new store openings but what you don't know is after the big circus employees are cut and back into the unemployment pool. Nordstrom company is all smoke and mirrors and those that report it as being a good place to work do not have the facts. This company is definitely not a job to base your future on, or even base your week on because you can be easily fired with only 2 seconds notice, if that. It’s like project runway-one day you’re in and the next day you’re out and they don’t bat an eye about it. Working hard and giving your all because you believe in the rumors that they are a good people business will only cause you great disappointment in the end, because humble and considerate they are not. You are a work horse who could be put down at any given moment.
This is not a job you take if you are needing a job for survival. This is a job you take ONLY if you can afford to be unsuspectingly let go. This is 100% one of those jobs you take only for the discount or as a supplement. Regardless of your great worth ethic and years invested in the company, you are disposable. Even if you reach the 2 year mark and make Allstar, you should still have a back-up security plan because a slip in sales could mean an instant layoff for even those who feel they have seniority. I have silently witnessed new hires come in grateful to find a job in this bad economy only to be unsuspectingly fired 1 month later and sometimes even shorter than that. Do Not take this job serious because they do not take you serious. If you accept an offer never stop looking for something else, and do not feel obligated to give a 2 weeks notice. After 2+ years of service I wasn't given any notice, just a quick sob story about their failing sales goals and how sad they were to have to fire people. As if cutting my small salary instantly without notice was going to solve their financial woes. This is a HORRIBLE, SELFISH company to be mistreated by. There’s a lot of mistreatment in the world of retail, but this company’s is just low-down and devious. Their excuses for layoffs are heartless. Never accept a job with this company, unless it's in new store openings and new-hire orientation, any other position is a scam.
