How to Get Hired
We asked Nordstrom, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
For every role across our company, we want to hire candidates who are passionate about our business, have a curiosity to learn, are dedicated to serving customers and are interested in growing a career with Nordstrom. The world of fashion retail is constantly evolving, and we rely on our employees to help us find new, creative and innovative ways to meet the needs of our customers. For more specialized roles, we’re looking for relevant skills and capabilities as well.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We’re always impressed by applicants who can show they’ve done their research and understand our business and who we are. We appreciate candidates who come prepared with ideas about ways we can better connect with, inspire and serve our customers, and can show how they have the experience and skills to help us do that.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
The majority of our employees work on the sales floor—it’s an area that continues to offer tremendous opportunities, particularly as we continue to open new Nordstrom stores in the U.S. and Canada. There is also a tremendous amount of new store growth happening at Nordstrom Rack, which is an important part of the career path for our future Nordstrom leaders.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
If you’re interested in a career with Nordstrom, we encourage you to network with our current employees who are working in the area that’s of interest to you.
