    Stock Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nordstrom Rack (Buford, GA (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Complete and utter waste of time. I applied online and four days later I received an email stating that "we've opted to go with another candidate" (Standard rejection letter). Four hours later I am sent an email stating that I match the preferred qualifications and they'd love for me to set up an interview slot online. I set up an interview time for one week out (it was the next available time). I get a call about a half hour later than scheduled from the 855 NY number. She greets me and asks, "Is there anything that would prevent you from working 7-8 hour shifts?". I truthfully answer "no" and she says the store I've applied to will reach out if interested. The next day, I receive a call; I missed it due to being in a meeting. The voicemail left is enthusiastic, "can't wait to speak with you regarding your qualifications, etc. I call back 30 minutes later, and after technical difficulties on their end regarding their phone- I finally get a hold of the manager that called me. "We just wanted to let you know that we've chosen to go with another candidate." I cannot tell you how frustrated and annoyed I was at this. WASTE OF TIME.
