    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Upper Marlboro, MD (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Upper Marlboro, MD (US)).

    Interview

    The process can only be described as arduous! It was MULTIPLE interviews over a 2 week period. First, a phone screening that lasted about an hour. Then I was invited to interview in person - this was for a human resources-related job at the Nordstrom warehouse in Upper Marlboro. When the manager sent me the appointment for the in-person interview, I was schocked to see it was for 5+ hours!! That's how they [try] to conduct interviews at Nordstrom. I say try, because it was incredibly disorganized. The manager was not prepared for my arrival, and took me around to a couple offices until he found someone to conduct the first interview. All general questions, nothing groundbreaking. The interviewer started with, "tell me about yourself." Then I waited for a few minutes before interviewing with another individual I would be working with. She asked some of the same questions. Up next was an interview with a senior manager, who asked the same questions! I was irritated at this point - why were they wasting my time?? Why not just have an interview panel, instead of making me have the same interview with 3 different people? In hour 4, they took me on a tour of the warehouse, which was interesting. Finally, an interview with the supervisor. Several of the people I was supposed to interview with were not available that day, so I had to do a phone interview with them a few days later. They kept saying they like to promote from within -- that was a huge red flag to me that I was not going to get the job (I didn't). I ended up really resenting the experience and the waste of my time. I had to take off an entire day of work for that!

    Cosmetic Counter Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Durham, NC (US)).

    Interview

    I received an email to interview. The initial response wasn’t answered, so I had to follow up. I went in for a formal interview, followed by an application interview. I was practically told I did a great job and was spoken to about training that following Tuesday. The executive called to speak with me, and she made me believe I had the job and I would hear back from Nordstrom shortly, and that my qualifications were more than perfect for the position. Not only did I never receive that call, but I never got a response to any follow up I ever sent. I was completely ignored and never heard from them again. Extremely unprofessional and unorganized. This is not the first time this has happened. I will not be applying here ever again, as they do not take their applicants or their employees seriously.

    Allocator Interview

    Interview

    Applied online, a phone interview with recruiter then with Hiring Manager. The Hiring Manager seemed not so interested in the conversation and just barely could put words together. She forgot what she wanted to say during the conversation. I finally got a feedback that they will be moving forward with an internal candidate that I was not surprised at all. I just thought they should not waste time of external candidates if they wanted to hire that internal candidate in the first place.
