Internship Interview

Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Denver, CO) in March 2017.

Interview

I applied online, and received a call to set up an interview about a week or so later. The interview was scheduled for two weeks after the phone call. I was brought back to a 4-person panel style interview. They each took turns asking me questions, all taking notes each time. The first questions they asked were very basic, like which location would you prefer, what are your top three departments, availability, etc. Then they went into the more in-depth interview questions. Tips: 1. Have your resume, letter of recommendation, cover letter, and a thank you note printed out to give to the interviewers. 2. Write down all the questions you can find, and have answers prepared. 3. Dress to impress, but remember this is Nordstrom, not a bank. I wouldn't wear a suit, they want to see your personal style; but keep it professional. I wore black velvet dress pants, a white blouse, and blush pumps. Don't forget to accessorize. 4. Get there early so you have time to review notes, go to the restroom, etc. 5. Remember to eat! I forgot and I was super shaky.

Good luck!

    Was a very pleasant and encouraging interview. I met two different store managers and they told me their stories and about the internship. Then the interview began and it was pretty average. About fifteen minutes of straight-forward questions. Then asked to pretend sell an item to the two interviewers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nordstrom in March 2018.

    Interview

    It was about an hour long. Pretty intense for a basic internship. It was a four on one style interview, so it was pretty intimidating. They also had a role-play part with another coworker. Seemed like a fun internship-but not for me.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Beachwood, OH) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very quick interview, about 20- 25 minutes. The human resource manager and shoe sales person asked the questions and wrote down my responses, but it was mostly the manager that controlled the interview. They were pretty casual and very nice. Answered all my questions and gave me their contact information.
