    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview Details

    There was an online application and within a day they sent an invitation to complete a video using HireVue. It took about 20 min asking 8 questions giving you 30 seconds to prepare to answer the question given then 3 minutes to answer. Overall the interview was very laid back and easy to complete. I am still waiting to hear back for further steps.

    Applied online. First interview was a video where you record yourself. It was not as hard as I thought it would be. The practice questions given were harder than the actual given ones.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview Details

    Sent in resume and was emailed back in two days to do video interview. It is a 20 minute interview that you send in with your answers. It was difficult to practice because you were not interacting with anyone so it was a little impersonal.

    Got the interview notification a couple days after applying. The first round was a video interview recording answers. There is a deadline to submit the record, but generally very easy to work on with. Not behavioral questions.

    Nordstrom Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Nordstrom in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and then I received an email that told me there is a job interview on Friday and I should tell them that I want to have this interview by email, I did this job immediately and send my agreement by email, but I didnt receive any other notification from them, so I've sent another email to catch up with them, and it was working!
    I've got the job interview dates and hour by email. But 2 days before my interview I receive a phone call from Nordstrom, they tell me that Im gonna have a phone interview on that day and it takes about 35 or 40 minutes and it is really happened .
     I didn't have such exprience, but it would be good if you be ready for that, they don't ask about unpredictable situations, just be yourself and answer their questions carefully, if you don't understand their question, don't be shy and ask them to repeat it again, I do this several times during my phone interview! :)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview Details

    I applied through their website. and then a month later received a phone call from a lady from their Seattle office for a 20 min phone interview. I was in the bus on the home but I decided to do the interview anyway. and then after answering the questions she asked I was invited for the second interview right away. Usually the 2nd interview is done in the store that I was applying to but since I am studying in different state, I was scheduled for a phone interview. The lady that did the 2nd interview was an HR person from the store I applied to and she was very very nice and friendly
