Question 2 of 20
How do you get along with others at work?
Professional Answers Preview
"I tend to get along well with my coworkers, and if occasionally something comes up, I'm sure to address any issue, so it doesn't get out of hand and create a divisive work environment. I'm always trying to be supportive, and a team player. More than anything, I want always to be positive and respectful towards those with whom I work."
The interviewer wants to gauge if you can maintain healthy relationships in the workplace. They want to know more about the dynamics with your coworkers. Think about what you enjoyed about some of your relationships with past coworkers. Excellent communication, sense of humor, and support are all great qualities that make co-worker relationships healthy and harmonious.

How often do you shop at Nordstrom?
Professional Answers Preview
"I love shopping at Nordstrom, and also Nordstrom Rack. The customer service is amazing, and I love the selection offered, as well as the brands. I am in your store once a month, if not more."
Perhaps you are a preferred member, or maybe you have not visited often. Regardless, you should have at least one to two experiences at a Nordstrom store before you head into your interview. You might mention that you like to have two big stock-up shopping trips a year. You might share that you shop at Nordstrom monthly because you just can't pass it up when you are already at the mall. Or, you might share that you love visiting Nordstrom for holidays and events such as Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduations, Weddings, Baby Showers, and Christmas because it is a great place to get gifts!
