Interview

1 hours technical interview - very easy, the interviewer seemed bored. I think we both knew it was just a weed-out round. 1 hour behavioral interview - meeting potential future team members, very fun, just talking about work styles. 1 hour technical interview - DP problem, not that easy. 1 hour systems design - seemed like the interviewer was added at the last minute / going off the top of their head. Difficult to know if I did well because the interviewer would not give system requirements. After the interview they told me they wanted someone who had more experience working in a team. (I had been a sole developer for a number of years prior.)

I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (New York, NY) in Jun 2021

Interview

Recently interviewed here on site at the NYC flagship location on 57th & Broadway, (Wolf Restaurant) to be exact. It felt ok at first while sitting there waiting my turn. Then I realized as other people were scheduled to interview as well that this seemed like a waste of time. I wasted my time coming to Midtown while the screening process could have been conducted via Zoom or phone call. The interviewer led me to a back table in the far corner of the restaurant, and proceeded to bombard me with textbook style interview questions, which were read rapidly like a machine. It felt like this was super rushed, and my answers didn't even matter. Overall, he was rushing this to the point where it seemed that they already had candidates to fill the role in mind. At the end of the interview, he got up and just rushed me to the door extremely fast. I was told that they had more interviews to conduct, but the next day I was notified that they had chosen someone else for the position. This could have been down via Zoom instead of wasting my time to have to go in person. It felt like I was being interviewed just to satisfy a requirement.

Interview Questions
  • How would you manage to approach tasks from very hard to easy? Tell me about a time where you had to overcome a particular challenge, how did you approach it and what was the outcome? What do you think would be the most important aspect for this job pertaining to front of house and back of house working together? How soon are you available to start? Do you have experience working with P&L Statements? Describe time or situation in your past experience where you achieved success?
