    Interview

    30 minute interview process, where Visual Manager goes through a series of questions from a handout. Pretty standard questions, and casual conversation between manager and I. Following interview process, walked around store with manager and had to pull 3 looks based on a picked trend. Overall, I had fun!

    Interview

    Applied for Job online and then invited me to video interview. completed a video interview at home that you record yourself and send in. They reviewed it and invited me to an in-person interview. Interview was at the Nordstrom location I was applying for. The interviewer was the visuals manager and she was really nice and friendly. She asked me questions from a packet and wrote them down and let me ask her a bunch of questions. Then I did 3 pulls for a trend. They are still conducting interviews and so I am still waiting for decisions to be made.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nordstrom in April 2015.

    Interview

    The visual manager and supervisor interviewed me together and it was fairly casual and straightforward. The manager explained how they did things at Nordstrom, their day-to-day, and what the stylist's responsibilities are. I was given 30 min to pull three outfits that fit the trend given to me from a specific shop in the women's department. The interview was going well until the supervisor ran out to me while I was walking back to the office to present my outfits. I was watching my time so that I wouldn't go over the limit they gave me but I felt rushed while I was presenting and as soon as they had said a few words each, I was asked if I knew how to navigate out of the back area. Not even a "do you have any questions for us" which I thought was odd.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Houston, TX) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed with HR and then the department manager. Pretty standard questions. They're just making sure that you're a hard worker and have a passion for the business. They also want to make sure you're current on fashion. If you don't know about fashion, fake it. They want to be seen as the cutting edge of fashion and won't hire you if you don't understand it.
