    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was offered phone interview a week later, after the phone interview I was invited in for in person interview. It was about 10 of us total we waited outside and was called 1 by 1 to interview with different department managers. I thought the interview went well was told I would receive a call within the next 2 days. Never received a call. Which I believe is unprofessional. Any kind of follow up is necessary. Whether they want to offer me the position or not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied April 13th, received a email saying I met the qualifications on April 16th, scheduled my own phone interview for April 25th. The phone interview was pretty easy, she told me she liked me and that she would schedule me for a in person interview. I made the interview for May 16th, because I was away at school and didn't come home until the 13th went to the interview and she said she would call me Thursday the 19th and she called and said that she would like to welcome me to Nordstroms team! It was a very great experience very easy.
