Sales and support positions will be posted on Monday, May 15 and interested applicants are invited to apply for jobs online at about.nordstrom.com/careers. The retailer also announced Jennifer Gross as Store Manager of its new CF Sherway Gardens store.

Sales positions at the CF Sherway Gardens store will be available in all areas including shoes, accessories, beauty and women's, men's, and children's apparel.

Retail experience is not required for sales positions. Hiring will also take place for various support positions in alterations, building services, housekeeping, loss prevention as well as a restaurant and coffee bar.

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

The majority of the 24 sales and support managers will be promoted from the current pool of Nordstrom Canada employees. For recent openings in Toronto, new manager training was provided with experienced managers at stores in Canada and the U.S.

A similar training program will take place for management positions filled from outside of the company. Salespeople will also participate in a training program based in Toronto prior to the opening of the CF Sherway Gardens store.

This training will focus on product knowledge, selling skills, and how to provide Nordstrom customers with a great shopping experience.
