    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Nordstrom.

    It was short and brief. The department manager will take you into their area and ask their set of questions. It was a very standard interview with the general questions you get asked everywhere.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    The interview was with one other candidate and the manager. The interview itself wasn't so bad; the questions kind of assumed you had previous retail experience though, which I didn't. My only complaint is they went through the process of interviewing me over the phone and in person when their seasonal positions were already full.. She told us that during the interview, which was kind of disappointing
