Sales Manager Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nordstrom in August 2013.

Interview Details

All management positions are filled with internal candidates, so only current employees can apply for management positions. This is helpful because then most managers have a very clear understanding about company culture. You are asked general questions about your current business- where your department sales are at compared to last year, top suppliers, team development, etc. However the biggest leg up you give yourself is recommendations from superiors.

Negotiation Details
Do not accept the first salary offer- if you negotiate they will mostly likely reconsider.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Nordstrom in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview then in person interview with a number of interviewees and interviewers. You go to one of the Nordstrom locations with about 10 other applicants. You are given a one on one interview. Then asked to pick out an outift (pretending to be the sales person while the person interviewing you pretends to be buying an outfit for the weekend) and then you come together as a group for an open forum of questions.
