“We support many community organizations through contributions, outreach programs, special events and volunteerism.”


As a company, Nordstrom has had the privilege of being welcomed into communities across the country. We’ve learned a lot from the people we’ve met through the years – and we have been inspired by them. We know our financial support and involvement can make a difference, which is why we support many community organizations through contributions, outreach programs, special events and volunteerism.


Each year, Nordstrom donates millions of dollars to organizations working to improve their communities. Our areas of focus are health and human services, community development, education and cultural enhancement.


For more than 50 years, Nordstrom and our employees have supported the annual fund drive for United Way organizations around the country through campaigns organized regionally. With over 70 percent of all employees contributing to the United Way campaign, Nordstrom has one of the highest participation rates for a company our size.



Our employees are involved in hundreds of organizations in their own communities. Nordstrom encourages employees to volunteer for local activities such as food and blood drives, holiday adoption programs and fundraising walks and runs. We think it’s great when our coworkers choose to make the most of their time by helping others.

    I worked at Nordstrom Rack (less than a year)


    The pay is pretty good for a retail/service job (I started a couple dollars above minimum wage), and the employee discount is cool if you're the type of person who shops frequently. The company culture promotes a friendly, team-like work environment that is very welcoming and helpful for new employees.


    The long, busy days can be a bit of a grind (especially during the holiday shopping season), and you will definitely have to deal with your share of rude customers. At times we were understaffed, and this made completing the required departmental tasks very difficult - especially since department associates would frequently have to go to the front to help ring up customers.
