    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Beachwood, OH) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was called to come in for an in person about a week after I applied. First interview was with 2 ladies from the department I applied to. My availability was not what they needed but I was very qualified so they passed me on to the manager of a different department. The interview was short, about 4 questions. They give you a tour to kind of test your product knowledge. After they told me the would contact me within a week, which they did, to offer me the position.

    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?

    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

    Easy Interview

    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.
