Interview

Nordstrom promotes from within so the interview was over the phone. It was fairly short because there was a lot of networking done prior to interviewing. It is always helpful if you know those who work in the company. Human Resources is very good at giving everyone an opportunity to get their foot in the door.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Los Angeles, CA) in Feb 2015

Interview

Apply online and HR or the Store Manager will reach out to you to set up an interview. There will be a phone interview and an in-person interview. However, if the store manager needs to hire quickly (during holiday seasons), it may just be a phone interview, so be prepared to give your best at any time.

Interview Questions
  • They give you some specifics about the department and ask how you will deal with it. For example, This floor has a million dollar seller, how will you meet their needs while still holding them accountable for tasks on the floor?
  • This department has seen a decrease in (specific department number), what will you do to change that?

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Boston, MA) in Dec 2014

Interview

Very brief and informal. The department manager positions are people who are already working in the company. This makes it a little easier when trying to move within your own region, as most of the other store managers will already know who you are and how you work.

Interview Questions
  • How are you going to improve business?

Interview

They are very aggressive at getting you in to interview. Quite polite during the process however show little respect for your current position or background. I feel like they wasted a lot of my time asking me back for multiple interviews given the follow up that was provided to me
