Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Seattle, WA).

Interview

Met an assistant manager of the department for lunch in the Nordstrom cafe. We had a conversation discussing my interests in sales, shoes, and life outside of work. It was a relatively easy going interview and my interviewer was someone I ended up learning a lot from in my time at the company

    Interview

    They were very to the point but polite. I did a cold sale where I had to sell an article of clothing with no feedback from the interviewer. It was overall a very simple process and took about a month from application to the offer.

    Interview for cultural fit including behavioral questions. The interview was casual, yet professional. I interviewed with a manager in my department, so the ability to relate and connect is important.

    Interview

    Quite pleasant. You will most likely go through a couple of rounds and the manager (of said department) will definitely do some roll play with you, so get ready!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Nice person on the other end all good. Nordstrom keeps it classy.

    Didn't get it (I think?) because I mentioned an occasional Sunday volunteer commitment? My guess is they prefer totally open availability in retail?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview

    Phone interview, in person interview by HR and then by Manager. The phone interview and HR interview were basic screening questions. The HR also was just to make sure you were the same person on the phone. The manger would walk around the department. Do a sample sale. Very basic.
