    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the summer internship program for sales. I applied online and was contacted within a week to set up a phone interview. I was then sent to a site to schedule a interview within a two hour time slot which they would call me in. Time slot was from 12:00-2:00pm and I was not called until 1:58pm, which I understand is still in the time window, but it was a little off putting. I was asked VERY basic questions, and asked a little about my job experience. Very short interview, took about 5 minutes. Seemed very interested on the phone, but I got an email the next day saying I wouldn't move on in the interview process.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Nordstrom in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    First went through a phone interview and then had an in person interview at the store. It was a group interview and afterwards had to pick an item and try to sale it to the HR manager.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult aspect was it being a group interview because I was unaware it was going to be set up that way. However, the interviewer was very friendly and made sure everyone was given the chance to answer the question. Make sure to prepare for basic personality questions like " a time when you did not meet a goal".   Answer Question

    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.
