    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nordstrom Rack (Buford, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was emailed to set up a phone interview. During the phone interview the woman asked what days I was available and then asked what days I wasn't available which seemed redundant to me. I said I had full availability and scheduled an interview. The interview was fast. I had no retail experience, but did volunteer work which the hiring manager liked. Read on this site that there are usually 2 interviewers so I guess I didn't make it because after the first interview the lady showed me out and didn't say anything about calling back. Oh well.
