    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Troy, MI) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was quick and painless. Than an in person interview was set up. I saw in a room full of other applicates and waited to be called back. Overall, I thought the interview process was a bit extreme for an entry level, commission based position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview

    To the point yet laid back process. Once you get to the 1:1 interview, they ask a handful of questions or present scenarios for you to answer. They also do a department walk through of your sales floor and will continue into the back stockroom, depending on if they feel like they are strongly considering giving you an offer.

    It was fairly quick and to the point, very polite and straightforward. The manager asked me a few questions I expected such as why I wanted to work there and what my previous similar experience was. They definitely value creative people working in their store because fashion is a priority.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Braintree, MA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    HR staff was nice and tried to make the process seem light. Problem was that it took 2.5 hours. I spoke with two people who both asked me the same questions from a company packet. Seemed too long and repetitive.
