    Cosmetic Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Nordstrom in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I put in an online application one evening and the very next day got an email to set up a phone interview. Did phone interview and was asked to come in for an interview in exactly two weeks.
    Fast forward two weeks, I get there and the lady interviewing me wasn't friendly at all. She was quick and to the point, which is understandable, but at the same time, I want to feel comfortable In a workplace. Anyways, the interview was going well until she asked my availability and I let her know that I work in a spa on weekends and that I would need notice to work Friday and Saturdays so that I could get someone to cover for me at the spa I work at. She let me know that she would need me every Saturday and that it wasn't an option to miss. I feel like my time was wasted, since I stated this over the phone interview. The interview was very rushed and overall it was just an uncomfortable experience. It's a bummer because I was really hoping to work for this company since I feel like I could be a great asset here.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Nordstrom in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had one phone interview, which was a very brief affair and lasted approximately 3-4 minutes. I was then asked to fill in an online questionnaire. Shortly after I received a call asking me to come into the store for a "proper" interview. I then had two in-store interviews. One with the department manager, and one with the store manager. The interviewers were all very nice, friendly and seemed genuinely interested in learning more about me. All in all a very positive experience.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hurst, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hurst, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Nordstrom in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and within 20 minutes I got an email asking me to set an appointment for a phone interview. I was of course nervous (I've never had a job before, and this is NORDSTROM), so I came on here and looked at all of the questions you guys were asked, wrote them down and studied it hard to make sure I didn't sound like I was a bad candidate. The phone interview was brief, about ten minutes. Asked how I would handle difficult customers, what skills I thought fit the position.
    At the end of the ten minutes she set me for an interview on the following Monday!
    I interviewed with two gentlemen at the same time, one was a sales person and the other was a manager. They were both extremely nice and I felt comfortable right away! They asked typical questions you would expect, many of which I saw on here. It didn't last long, maybe 15 minutes. Then I got a tour of the department I would be working in (Kids wear!). They were very thorough and showed me the back rooms, how things were organized, and were very informative. I thought it went great!
    After not hearing anything on Tuesday I thought for sure they would hire someone else, but as I was walking home from volunteering at the Library on Wednesday, I got a call and was offered the job!
    I start training on Saturday!

    Interview Questions
    • They were pretty standard. For me the difficult questions were the ones asking about handling past customers and such, since I had to try to find real-world applications without any work experience.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview Details

    I first applied online and sent my resume. When you apply online you also take a short personality test. Be sure to take your time on this and really think about the answers. This is the first thing they use to weed people out. Once you past the online application, they will send you an email asking to set up a phone interview. The phone interview last about 30 minutes. It was someone from the Nordstrom Seattle Headquarters. It was basic questions, just trying to get to know you. They will ask you why you want to work for Nordstrom. They asked me to give them examples of a time I showed leadership skills, what my favorite designer was. Once you past the phone interview, they will email you and tell you the date of your in person interview. It was just a one on one interview with the human resource manager of one of the Nordstroms in Dallas. She asked me similar questions as the phone interview. They ask you about your previous work experience.

    Savvy-Trend Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Nordstrom in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied to Nordstrom online, called to speak to the manager as one of the employees told me to. She allowed me to know that if the shoes fits basically they would get back with me. I got an email saying I got the interview. This all happened within a week.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was unusual. It was really fast and the manager seemed to not care about my answers. As I answered, barely she'd finish answering the question for me. Typically questions. How would you handle a difficult situation, pros/cons of yourself, etc. She also mad be pick an outfit out. She told me she'd call me on Monday, I interviewed on a Friday. She called me late that Monday and told me I got the job. I realized the interview process was so brief because I figure she knew she was already going to hire me. It was very easy, practice does always make perfect though.   Answer Question
