    It was a good interview. Group interview with five people total. We were interviewed by two Human Resource personnel. It was followed by a sales simulation. They had really friendly staff that were clearly in love with the company. They made sure we were comfortable. They did not ask for resumes.

    SHORTHILLS INTERVIEW/NORDSTROM

    Total 2 interviews. One was via phone, and one in person. The interview process was not so great. About 6 people interviewed me, they all asked me questions from the paper, very unprofessional. There was only 2 people that were actually nice and knew what they were talking about. One of them wasn't even interested in interviewing, they made me feel like I was from a different planet. My interview lasted about 1 hour, if some of them weren't interested then why bother interviewing me for an hour?

    I recommend that know what questions you will ask the candidates, and be professional. I arrived on time, and the door was locked. They didn't begin the interview on time, they think they own the whole world. Extremely unprofessional people and their goal on the website states, "is treat people with respect and provide high end customer service." I think they need to work on that before interviewing people.

    Even if I get the offer, I would have declined it immediately.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Waterbury, CT) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Panel style interview asking questions about previous work experience, motivation, and my interests. Then I was brought upstairs to the floor and had to sell one of the interviewers an item based on criteria I was given. After that, I was brought back to the room for more questioning and was given information on the program. They made me feel confident in my ability to perform the tasks and hopefully recieve an offer and were extremely misleading.
