Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Nordstrom.
Interview Details – manager liked me so I got the job it was that easy. I just had a phone interview too. As soon as some changes were made I was no longer a favorite.
Negotiation Details – no starting was $16.00 for visual that is good starting hourly the cap is $23.00, the company has done some cuts so this might change. I am guessing they will pay visual less.
I applied in-person and interviewed at Nordstrom.
Interview Details – I had interviewed for the position and it took almost five months before I was offered the job after interviewing. I thought it was odd till I started there and realized you NEVER have time for things like interviews and hiring because there is so much to do all the time in the world of visual merchandising/presentation.
Interview Question – can't think of one specific. I found out that they really look at what you are wearing and how creative and "on trend" you are. They are always looking for raw talent in Visual dept. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There really was no negotiation on my part. It was a small store and sort of the bottom of the Nordstrom food chain. I knew I was gonna start a little more than base because of my experience. Nordstrom really pays well for the field compared to every retail chain I have looked at.
The process took 1 week - interviewed at Nordstrom in September 2011.
Interview Details – The Visual Manager had me pull three outfits for 3 different customers in 30 minutes. I then described where each "outfit" was going and the target market

Even after I declined the offer, they asked that I call if I had any additional insights or questions.
