Sales Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Lone Tree, CO) in February 2015.

Interview

I had two different interviews, one over the phone and one in person. The one over the phone isn't as personal, just goes over brief things, but in person they ask more in depth questions and really try to see if you are a right fit, overall, for the company and the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Bellevue, WA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online for a position in Womens Sales and was contacted 2 days later and scheduled a phone interview. My phone interview took place the next day and I was offered a spot to come in for their open interviews at the beginning of the next week. The open interview contained approximately 40 people. We all went into the conference room and were introduced to the managers of each department that was hiring. I interviewed with two departments. My first interview lasted about 5 minutes, my second interview lasted about 20 minutes and ended with the women asking me to "sell" them several pieces of clothing. I have never done retail before, but I love fashion so I used my best discretion. The two managers said I did great, handed me their cards, sent me home from the interviews and said they would be in contact within the week because they wanted to "move forward". I received a call 3 days later and was officially offered the job.
