Nordstrom is hiring approximately 900 full- and part-time seasonal employees for its fulfillment center in southwest Cedar Rapids.

The Seattle-based retailer’s facility at 7700 18th St. SW supports customer orders from Nordstrom.com, the Nordstrom mobile app and Nordstrom catalogs.

Susan Edmunds, recruiting manager for Nordstrom Direct, said some of the jobs have the possibility of becoming regular positions beyond the holidays.

“The holiday season is an especially busy time for us, and we need extra help at our fulfillment center to ensure we’re prepared to take care of our customers orders with speed and accuracy,” Edmunds said. “Beyond the holidays, our company is growing quickly and these temporary positions could lead to a career with Nordstrom.”

Nordstrom will hold an open house from 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday at the fulfillment center for those interested in learning about the company and potential employment. Those unable to attend the open house can visit the Nordstrom Careers Web page at about.nordstrom.com/careers, contact Nordstrom directly at (319) 846-4020, or by email at Recruiting2@nordstrom.com.

Nordstrom.com serves customers in 96 countries. The Cedar Rapids fulfillment center opened in 1997.

Nordstrom operates 284 stores in 37 states, including 118 full-line stores in the United States and one in Canada; 162 Nordstrom Racks; two Jeffrey boutiques; and a clearance store.
