    Interview

    They ask you pretty classic questions: why you’re interested in working there, your working style, etc., as well as some more specific questions like “what’s your personal style like?” or “how would you help/style a customer for this specific situation?” Nordstrom is all about customer service so it’s important to note how you’ll be customer-focused.

    Interview

    There was one interview in which I was asked some questions and gave some answers. Overall I would say it was an interview, but I decided to go to no more.

    Tailor/Fitter Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Columbus, OH (US)) in November 2020.

    Interview

    Sewing test: shorten sleeves, sides thru blades, waist seat crotch (timed test) followed by a fitting test. Here’s my actual experience: I’m a female, and I arrived wearing slacks, sweater, and a sports coat. The woman interviewing me didn’t seem to approve of my attire. It was subtle and nonverbal. I accidentally let slip that I’m married to a woman (I used the word ‘wife’ and she made me repeat myself). And the tailor shop was blaring Christian music through the entire test. I did inquire if this was a personal choice or if it was the company norm. She chose it personally to better her English. I did point out that there were other stations that would do the same thing for her. She didn’t care to reply. I was so frustrated by the time I finished the assigned alterations that I botched the fitting test. Safe to safe I didn’t get the position haha

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (San Diego, CA (US)) in November 2020.

    Interview

    Very strange interview. The interviewer had not even looked at my resume, had no questions for me, and talked through the entire interview just telling me about the position. I left the interview and she did not know one thing about me.
