    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nordstrom (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty easy. You basically have a phone interview with HR, who then brings you in to meet them, the department manager and maybe the store manager. I was hired on the spot, so it went pretty smooth.
