    During the first phone call, i was asked little bit about my background. At the end of this call, I was told to wait for phone interview, but days later, they emailed me that they already find somebody else instead. So I was quite disappointed.

    Compliance Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview

    They put me through 4+ rounds of interviews that lasted over 4 months, and no offer. As the length of the interview process reveals, there were weeks (if not over a month) of radio silence between interview rounds. The organization (and interviewers) strike me as very laidback and lazy. Also they stole some of my ideas for the business unit, so they seem very unethical as well.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, DE

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Newark, DE) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email to schedule a phone interview the same day. She said she has one question, which was regarding my availability. I told her my hours, but she seemed completely displeased. I'm a college student so classes always come first, but the interviewer almost expected me to change my class schedule in order to cater to when they needed. Also, she insisted I be able to work for the holidays, which I understand is important, but I won't even be in the state at that time, as I'm going home for the holidays.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Schaumburg, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Must apply online, the rep calls you in a two hour window, if you miss it they don’t call back and you have to reschedule. I️ had an interview at Woodfield and the HR got me in and picked a department for me and I️ would have worked any department. The kids dept head scheduled me during a time she knew they had a sales rally so I️ was left waiting outside in the cold until someone let me in the employee door, then I️ waited 20 more minutes standing until someone finally took pity on me and found her. She was unorganized and asked me the same questions the HR lady did. She didn’t call me back but emailed me asking for a time to call me, then she didn’t call me, emailed again saying she was busy, and finally after two weeks in the whole process she said she picked another candidate. I️ could apply online for another position. I️ didn’t even pick that position. Why couldn’t she just tell HR and put me in another department or cashier if this department didn’t need me and they are hiring for literally 10 departments? Really dumb process.

    MAC On-Call Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Costa Mesa, CA).

    Interview

    I liked the interview process but not even before the interview started the Manager told me that the position I was applying for was not available because it was an “old post” but the post said it had been up for about 5 days. So she told me that they weren’t hiring for that position at the moment. Yet even after my interview, that post stayed up. And now 2 weeks after my interview the same position is posted up in a new post.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Seattle, WA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    After a few weeks I got an email to do a first round interview with the recruiter. She was slow to respond and when she did she scheduled an interview for 2.5hrs after the time that she sent the email. When it came time for the interview, she never called. I even followed up after waiting 10minutes and then waited another 10 minutes. Very unprofessional.
