Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Lynnwood, WA) in December 2016.

Interview

Very quick, first offered phone interview then if passed, follow up in person interview. Often times different managers will interview you from different departments to see where you would fit best. Then they will decide who might offer you a position.

    Start with over the phone interview, minimal questions. Followed by an in person interview, basic question and an offer. Background check and paper work. adding more words words words... need to add more words to the question.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nordstrom (San Diego, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First I received a phone interview which they only asked for my availability. The guy on the phone said he'd call me back with information about an in store interview but did not get back to me. Since he never called me back I made sure to be persistent and that led to me being moved to the top of the list for an interview. Today I met the manager of Top shop; she asked a few questions that were pretty simple to answer. She made me feel comfortable and ended the interview with showing me the Top shop department.

    Just asked some quick questions regarding my availability. Expected more! Thats all she really asked me and then after that she told me that the HR manager in store would be the one to interview me. Im waiting on that interview now and really looking forward to it. It was a very easy interview that I really over prepared for.

    It was about 30 mins long. I had 3 interviews one with HR, and 2 interviews for each of the department I was interested in. During the interview with the department managers we had a role play where I had to show how I'd approach a customer and to put together an outfit for them

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview

    First, I applied online and was contacted by phone within a few days. I had a quick phone interview, then a week later had an in person interview. It was very standard. The department manager of the store interviewed me by reading questions prompted by a script. It was very repetitive. It took another 2 or so weeks to do "orientation." Overall, it was a long process for a job most anyone can do.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview

    Went into my local Nordstrom and gave my resume to the department assistant manager. Received a call around two weeks later to set up an interview. Two weeks after the interview, I was hired. Lots of questions about customer service- they want to see that you will be able to make connections with the customer and have your own customer base.
