    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nordstrom.

    Interview

    A very thorough interview. They take you into a side room and will ask you questions from a sheet of paper and write down your answers. I was interviewed by the Visual manager and her assistant. Once the sit down interview is finished they walk you to a certain department with a rolling rack and give you an inspiration sheet and ask you to pick outfits that correspond to those trends. Layering the outfits is key* and also pay a lot of attention to detail i.e.: rolled cuffs, rolled sleeves, popped collar etc.
