Warehouse Review: A place that was meant to fail
N/A (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL 60629 – July 10, 2016
I was informed that Nordstrom was closing the Trunk Club Warehouse one year from now. I don't know where to begin, but the place had lots of problems. They were trying so hard to be different than all the other workplace. Sadly, they just ended being another retail workplace. You get graded how call centers grade their employees. You unload and pack trunks based on the matrix system, Amazon does that. We have these meeting call the "huddle" but we are being talked to like children. What's even baffling was a lot of the workers there did not even care. All because the management did not treat them well. It is true to some extent, but that place was clearly not meant to be a career. Clear signs were the minimum wage, and little pay increase. Plus, the job was too easy. Anyone can do it. Heck, even a 10 year old can do it. But if I had to describe my co-workers in one word only: a sellout. They hated the place, but so many of them wanted to be full-time badly, then they invited their friends to the workplace. They went against their words. It was pretty much a fake environment. There are so many other workplace that are way better. Don't stay there for long term because you are simply wasting your time.
Music, plenty of water stations
So much, but why bother
