Upscale Seattle-based Nordstrom is hiring 1,600 employees for its next two Canadian store openings this fall, both in Toronto. Each store will employ about 800 people. Jobs will be posted to on Monday, May 23, and hiring will begin in late June.

Nordstrom’s 220,000 square foot CF Toronto Eaton Centre flagship location opens on Friday, September 16 of this year, while its 196,000+ square foot Yorkdale Shopping Centre store will open on Friday, October 21.

Sales positions are available in all areas of each store including women’s, men’s, and children’s apparel, shoes, accessories, cosmetics and designer goods. Retail experience is not required for sales positions. Hiring will also take place for various support positions in concierge, alterations, building services, housekeeping, loss prevention as well as jobs specific to the stores’ restaurants and coffee bars.

Nordstrom offers employees a competitive benefits package including a 20% retail discount (managers receive a 33% discount), dental, medical and vision options, and an RRSP matching program.

For recent Nordstrom store openings in Calgary, Ottawa and Vancouver, Nordstrom sales managers participated in an eight-week manager training program in Seattle. A similar training program is being provided for 62 recently hired Toronto department managers, who this time will be partnered with the retailer’s most experienced managers at stores across Canada and the United States for a five-week training program where they will learn about the company culture. Once salespeople have been hired, they will also participate in a training program in Toronto that will focus on product knowledge, selling skills, and how to offer Nordstrom customers a great shopping experience.

Best of luck to all interested applicants.
