Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nordstrom (San Francisco, CA).

Interview

The interview process was pretty easy. You basically have a phone interview with HR, who then brings you in to meet them, the department manager and maybe the store manager. I was hired on the spot, so it went pretty smooth.

    Interview

    About a 2 week process. Interviewed with 2 departments before I got a call days later that I did not get the job. I wanted TBD but coming home from school the only open department was men's formal.

    Interview

    You'll have several interviews with HR, Store manager, and department managers. First you have a phone interview, then they'll ask when you can come in for an interview. They take you on the floor for a customer/sales associate scenario.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Leesburg, VA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    After applying online, they sent me a link to schedule an initial phone interview. After you select a time, you must be available for a two hour time slot after that time (ex. you select 2, they will call you any time between 2 and 4). After you pick up, the only question they asked me about was my availability, I told them I would have completely open availability. She seemed pleased by that. The woman looked up the position I was applying for and told me that all sales associate positions in all the departments had been filled since I had applied the last week. It became obvious to me at that point that the woman interviewing me wasn't from the specific store, but from some off-location call center that conducts these initial interviews. So I wasted two hours waiting for their call only to be told that there weren't any jobs left. For a store so well known for their customer service they treat potential employees terribly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview

    I applied online, and received an email the next day asking for an interview with HR. Interview with HR went smoothly, and I was invited back to interview in the store I applied to. I thought the interview went well, but they still hadn't called me back a week later. I called and I was given the run around about HR. Still haven't received a call back, I think it's probably safe to assume I didn't get it - which is fine, but I really find the delay in response unprofessional.

    Interview

    Phone interview and schedule it at 2. Called me at 3:30. Waited quite a while and the person interviewing me sounded rushed. She said she would spend about 5-10 minutes on me.

    Interview

    It was your basic interview with basic situational and personal questions. Overall very easy going, felt a bit like a conversation. They also bring you down to the store for a mock sale as well.
