I had an unfavorable interview experience. I was interviewed by the department manager on Friday. I thought the interview process went well. I went to the department in which I interviewed for to see where it is located and how the process works. The interviewing manager stated I would receive a phone call on Monday from either himself or another manager. Well, 2 Mondays came and went with no phone call. I did not receive any e-mails either. I thought this was very unprofessional as well as rude. You should not commit to something and then not follow up with it. If they decided on another candidate, fine but don't leave me hanging. Shoot a quick e-mail advising they decided to go with someone else. I took the time out to go on this interview and I believe I should be advised as to the outcome. Very disappointed with Nordstrom as they pride themselves on Customer Service.

You are not necessarily interviewed by your immediate manager.
They have a form with questions that you are asked.

Laid back. Typical interview questions. A great personality is a necessity at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack.

Phone interview first. I was told immediately after phone interview they wanted to move forward with a face to face interview. Face to face consists of 4 managers and group interview. Received a phone call 4 days later saying I got the job, contingent upon a background / credit check
