Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Long Beach, CA) in January 2017.

Interview

Great and comfortable. I think the interviewer was very nice and down to earth. It was just like talking to a regular person who wants to get to know you first. The interview went very well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nordstrom (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was asked to go directly to the Ebar, I was treated respectfully and offered drinks and treats during the interview. The manager in charge made sure to ask me about my future career plans and how the company would fit in them (no the usual how would I see myself in the company in the next five years), briefly explained the benefits and mostly made focus on making sure if I had a passion for coffee since they need there employees to enjoy there job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nordstrom (White Plains, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on line. Received a call from the manager to come in. We sat and it was a really personal interview as the E-Bar is suppose to be a really good face for the Nordstrom store. It's a really simple interview and really just depends on your personality from what I've seen. You need to just prove that you're able to work in a hectic environment while remaining cool and keeping a smile.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Tacoma, WA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Just asked basic questions about my resume. Had me explain past jobs, and asked a lot of behavioral questions. I had two interviews, one with the manager and then one with the assistant manager. They pretty much just ask you about yourself. You don't need coffee experience to work in here but it's a plus. They'll pretty much hire anyone if they decide they like your personality.
