    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nordstrom (Vancouver, BC) in February-2018.

    Interview

    Applied on the online Nordstrom job website. Took about 2-3 months for a response, they called back and asked to set up a video chat interview (because I'm currently studying abroad). They emailed me an assignment, had to talk about two trends for both men and women and had to create a virtual Pinterest board of a 'fashion pull' (if I was doing an in-person interview I would have to do it in-store). Set up the interview for the following week after. They said they would get back to me by the end of the week but they didn't. Ended up following up with the hiring manager and she sent me an email that they sent it the final pull's to HQ for them to decide. Didn't get end up getting the internship but it was a great (yet stressful) experience.
