    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom Rack (Daly City, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online, then got an email for a phone interview. Easy to do and schedule. Called me about 10-15 minutes within the two hour time frame. Was quick and straightforward. Then was invited to do an in person interview during the call for three days later. I was told through the phone interview and the confirmation email to get in line to let a cashier know that I had an interview, but then I was told when I was in the front of the line that I didn't have to do that, (LOL) so to save time, just let any worker know and you should be fine. One on one interview with one of the department leads, got a tour of the place, and then had another interview with another department lead/manager. I thought I was gonna have to wait for a call, but they had me stay longer and I was actually hired on the spot! The whole interview is very casual and relaxed. Everyone that I encountered especially my department lead were super nice and friendly. Just be yourself and you'll do just fine. :)

    I forgot the specifics of the questions but it consisted of team work experience and "tell me a time when..." scenarios. Wasn't too many either, just a good amount.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nordstrom Rack (Cherry Hill, NJ) in September 2017.

    Interview

    There is a phone interview after submitting your application and then if you pass that, you go to an in-person interview where you'll meet with two managers. It was fairly simple and I was hired a few hours after meeting in person with the managers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom Rack (Orlando, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and they sent an email asking to schedule a phone interview. I scheduled the phone interview for 4:00 and they called me at 5:00. She asked for my availability, and I'm a full-time college student so I had to her my schedule for school. After that, she gave me an attitude about telling her my schedule, which I'm not sure why because that's something she would need to know if I was hired. She was completely unprofessional and extremely rude. After that, I didn't feel like we would be a good fit.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom Rack.

    Interview

    Applied online and scheduled a phone interview. Phone interview was easy, asked about availability and experiences I had with customers, and why I wanted to work at Nordstrom Rack. During the phone interview, an in-person interview was scheduled. The in-person interview was easy, the manager was very nice. Asked about availability, to give examples on when I worked in a team, etc, then I was given a tour around the store and introduced to employees. I was told that I would hear back in less than three days, on the fifth day I received a call saying I did not have enough availability and did not offer me the position.
