    I applied online and heard back a day later to conduct a phone interview. Afterwards, an in person interview was scheduled which consisted of two parts- behavioral and sales demo. The managers and HR fully explained its core ideal and what the company stood for. Longest interview for retail that I've ever had. A day after, I got a call of the job offer. Very professional and organized!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Centennial, CO) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for a sales associate position online and someone from HR called me a few days later for a phone screen. She asked me if I could come in for an in-person interview on 4/12/18 at 2 pm. I arrived for the interview 15 minutes early and followed their instructions and waited by the customer elevator outside of HR on the 3rd floor. 2 pm rolls around and no one showed up to meet me. 10 minutes later on of their associates walked by and I asked her for assistance so she went to the office and let them know I was there. 20 more minutes roll by so I called the phone number in my confirmation email and got a voicemail. I left a message stating I was waiting by the elevator, per their instructions, and no one ever bothered to come out. I ended up leaving at 2:45 pm. I have never been do disrespected or humiliated by any other company during the interview process. How unprofessional can you get?? I responded to their interview confirmation email what had happened and that i deserved an explanation as to why they wasted my time and NO ONE has ever bothered to reach out or respond to me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    In-person interview, very simple. They ask you about your experience, how personable you are and why you are a good fit for Nordstrom. I applied for a different position than I got, but that made sure to ask if you were okay with working in a different department than you applied for. You do a floor walk and I got offered the job on the spot.
