Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Nordstrom.

Interview Details

Easy and brief. Interview didn't take long and it was like talking to a co-worker than a hiring manager which made it a lot easier to open up to. Try being yourself and have knowledge of the company and the products they sale. Also ask at least 3 question.

    I applied online – interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone interview in which they asked some pretty difficult questions. It lasted about twenty minutes and they asked around 10 questions such as: How do you feel about a commission based environment, why do you want to work at Nordstrom, What is something you failed at and how did you overcome it?

    I applied online – interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview Details

    It was a pretty short interview process. I applied online and received a response within a day or two for a phone interview. I scheduled the phone interview, which manly consisted of a few questions about why I wanted to work at Nordstrom and other generic interview questions. After that, I was invited in for an in-person interview where I was asked similar questions. They offered me a position on the spot.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview Details

    It was a fairly standard interview process. After applying, I received a phone call asking them when I would be available for an interview. Once you get there, you meet with someone up front in their human resource department and wait to speak with the manager of whatever department you applied for. I worked for this company multiple times and one time for a different department I also had to have an interview with the Human Resources manager as well. Overall, it was a pretty common interview experience.

    Interview Details

    Quick, professional, very laid back. You interview with a manager and they give you different scenarios. Like tell me about a time when you were in a competition at work and what was the outcome. Or they have you go through a mock sale. Nice company to work for.
