    Interview Details

    Applied online for Cosmetics Sales Associate position. Got a call back the next day for an interview. Met with the cosmetics department manager and it was the most difficult interview ever. I've had interviews at Nordstrom before and was a rehire so I thought I had an idea of what they would ask but I felt as if I was interviewing for a job way more difficult than retail sales. It was over an hour and she asked about 20-30 questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Pick at product to sell to me. Why did you pick this product? Tell me 3 things about this product. What would you say to a customer who had reservations about this product.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Nordstrom in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Went through 2 interviews. I was first contacted by human resources and had a phone interview which was followed by an interview with the department manager of the department you wished to work in. Once you interview with the department manager there is a good change of getting the job.
