Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee in Tukwila, WA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Tukwila, WA) in April 2017.

Interview

They first emailed me and then they called me a couple days later to set up an interview. The entire process took around 1-1.5 week. I practiced by looking up common questions. My list was about 20 questions and I felt that preparing for that many questions was helpful. They asked all the questions I prepared for. Some of the questions were different but was similar to the ones I practiced so I was able to still answer well. It's a good idea to practice for curveball questions where you might not expect it but can still give a good answer or bs a good answer.

    Interview

    The person who conducted my interview was very nice. Unfortunately, my schedule is too restricted. They were only searching for full-time applicants, but it was a pleasant experience. They recommended that I apply for Nordstrom Rack instead for part-time.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Nordstrom in October 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process took less than a week. I applied online and received a call within three days. Dress for success! They ask you to meet them either in the department you are interviewing for or in Customer Service. The entire interview took about twenty minutes, and they told me they would call me if they decided to hire me. Fortunately, I got a call the next day.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no difficult question. Simply the basics: "Why do you want this job? What do you think you can bring to the company?" They also make you choose an item and try to sell it to them, or approach you with a "customer issue" and ask you what you would do.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They asked me what I wanted hourly, and I said nothing lower than $10/ hr, and they accepted.
