Sales Intern Interview

Sales Intern
Woodland Hills, CA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nordstrom in April 2011.

Interview Details – You initially have an interview via the phone with someone in HR, and from there you move on to an in-person interview at one of the Nordstrom stores. During the in-person interview you are asked situationally questions and then asked to sell a product from the store. You have to describe the benefits and features and do a quick role play as if you are a sales associate. Very relaxed interview in-person, easy to answer questions and overall a great experience!

Interview Question – Tell me a time when you failed?   Answer Question

Sales Intern Interview

Sales Intern
Pittsburgh, PA

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Nordstrom in February 2010.

Interview Details – First, I got a phone interview. It was brief and informal with a few basic questions like what are your career goals?, then we scheduled a time a on-site interview.
The on-site interview was one-on-one with the HR person. Some questions are scenario-based, some ask for past experiences and examples that demonstrate certain qualifications. Overall, they want to know that you are a competitive person that will be able to adapt and succeed in their commission based system. After the HR person, a department manage came in to interview me. That particular department was the one I was hired for. She asked me some similar types of questions.
The entire interview took about an hour and a half, but it didn't seem like it was that long.
