Typically a couple of weeks. You apply online, they call you for an interview and you come in to interview with the HR manager. That person will then send you on to interview with a department manager of whichever department you applied for or which one they feel like you would be a good fit. Then, if that manager likes you he/she will have you meet the store manager. From there on that basically means you got the job and you just have to wait for new hire orientation. So overall the process should be a week or two

I had an unfavorable interview experience. I was interviewed by the department manager on Friday. I thought the interview process went well. I went to the department in which I interviewed for to see where it is located and how the process works. The interviewing manager stated I would receive a phone call on Monday from either himself or another manager. Well, 2 Mondays came and went with no phone call. I did not receive any e-mails either. I thought this was very unprofessional as well as rude. You should not commit to something and then not follow up with it. If they decided on another candidate, fine but don't leave me hanging. Shoot a quick e-mail advising they decided to go with someone else. I took the time out to go on this interview and I believe I should be advised as to the outcome. Very disappointed with Nordstrom as they pride themselves on Customer Service.

I used to look forward to coming in and help my team make their goals, since I’m a manager that’s what is expected. But being a small store it’s hard for majority of my team to even sell enough to make commission.

Hours depend on the needs of the business. If you sell well, are a team player, show up on time and don’t ask to leave early, and take initive instead of waiting for a manager to tell you what to do you will eventually become an allstar and open majority of your shifts

Almost everything!! Being a manager is OD stressful since you have to manage a team, make sure you get your managerial tasks properly done, AND make your sales goals. The pay is VERY SH*TY IF YOU HAVE BILLS and it is INCONSISTENT.
