Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Austin, TX).

Interview

Application online, brief phone interview, following an in person interview with a manager or assistant manager from the department you will be working at! I was given a tour of the store, and a look around the women's, kids, departments upstairs! It was a great experience! Everyone was so welcoming and nice, it was very exciting! Follow up after the in person interview was very quick too about 2-3 days.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Bloomington, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The on line questionnaire is kind of tedious but the face to face interview with HR is very easy going and helpful. HR is very approachable and informative about what is available in different departments.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Atlanta, GA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Did application online, had phone interview then was scheduled for an interview in the store with about 30 other people at Phipps Plaza. Personally felt like the management and HR people were very "coonish" and put on this fake attitude and vision about the company but you can so clearly tell they're lies. I interviewed with two of the department managers. I thought it went well however once I thought about it I didn't really fit the coonish atmosphere that was being pushed. They only hire people who are 21 or older and have college degrees. Was a completely commissioned base job which basically means, your paychecks will vary a lot. I don't see how you would really make any money at this job except durning the holidays. High turnover rate. They said they would get back to me in a week but never did. Very unprofessional.
