Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Chicago, IL).

Interview

When first applying you go through online and take a very long personality quiz but once you are in the company almost everything is word of mouth and recommendations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Houston, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The process took 3 months; I was applying from within the company (I was already a Sales Associate) and as soon as the holidays passed, I was notified that the position no longer exists due to budget cuts. They leveraged my experience, time and efforts, and I received no apology for my wasted time. I also did not receive other offers to grow within the company although I have been actively pursuing a career with them. I was expected to stay with the company until another position comes open, while holding Master's degree and bachelors in Apparel Merchandising. Very unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    The hiring process was very easy, they actually came to me at my former job and it only took a week to get it. I just had external factors at the time that got in the way of being successful and the crappy training I received did not help me either.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bethesda, MD

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Bethesda, MD) in June 2009.

    Interview

    Nordstrom hires from within, you'll generally need to start in sales unless you are going to work at the corporate office.

    The online portion of the application is a series of questions to see if you're a possible candidate. Get enough answers wrong and you'll 'light up red' at which point they can't proceed.

    The in-person interview was personable and casual although held in an intimidating room.

    As a hiring manager I interviewed many prospects and it was generally a series of questions but nothing was set in stone. All answers had to be filled out on a piece of paper and rated for legal reasons. Largely, it comes down to the impression you make.

    Interview Questions

    • We liked to ask people to sell us something during the interview. Whether it was a piece of paper or the table they're sitting in front of. Then if they showed promise walk them to the department and have them talk about an item they had no knowledge of.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    At a manager level compensation negotiation was important. Mostly the original offer was low and then evaluated later after a year or so. Don't be shy.
