    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online.
    Received email shortly after to set up phone interview.
    Phone interview was brief, I was asked a few questions and then invited for a in person interview .
    My in person interview was scheduled for the following week.
    Went in, interview lasted about 15-20 mins, I was asked basic interview questions.
    After the interview she asked if I had any questions I asked one, she said I could expect a follow up within a few days. Received phone call two days later letting me know she had chosen another candidate with more experience. The overall process was okay and easy. The only thing I found comical was the reason I wasn't chosen, I had well over enough retail experience for the position. I would of her rather just said she chose another candidate and left it at that, but I guess it's a matter of opinion. Anyways, I at least appreciate the call.
