    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Nordstrom in July 2014.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview. Then I had to take two computer tests and went in for an interview. The first test is to see how well you can multitask and respond to customers. The second test is part of the in person interview. I listened to an employee take six calls. Then I went back for my interview. The interview was discussing my skill levels in customer service, computer skills, previous employers, job duties and how do I handle various situations. I was told that I would hear back from them within a week and it has been a week.

    Interview Questions

    • The computer tests you on your ability to multitask and how well you respond to customers based on the information they provide you with.   Answer Question
