    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Neiman Marcus (Charlotte, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Was called by HR asst. setup in person interview was kind of rushy about setting up interview...but quick process BUT I called 2 weeks prior to him setting up interview they do walk-ins M-Th So under that situation NOT so quick HR never returned my call HR asst did. Nothing really the HR assistant in the Charlotte location (fatty man) was uninterested when i walked in. He lied about the position tells me I a better fit for support(warehouse) because I would not be a good sales but I applied for a intern which required a college degree ...he was unprofessional rude and SUPER fat. He never asked any questions just rambled about NM like it was the best job in the world. And described the customers as rude clearly he doesn't like his job

    The HR supervisor that conducted the phone interview was very helpful and well-informed. The manager that conducted the in-person interview was very kind, but stuck to the book when asking questions. The interview was short and to the point.

    I applied online – interviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview

    The interview process was great as the executive and HR reps were all very sweet. They seemed interested in getting to know me as a person. It was very obvious they all loved the company and were passionate about their work. I really did not see it so much as an interview but rather a good conversation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview

    They asked very easy and simple questions about my resume, aspirations, and why I wanted to work for Neiman Marcus. Very laid back interview. No tricky questions. The interview was at Texas A&M University with a college recruiter. I did not get a second interview because I had one more semester left and they only wanted graduating seniors for their interviews at that point in time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Neiman Marcus in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through my university, and then I took an online personality and retail test. After that, I had a phone interview, but it wasn't at all the interview that I prepared for. The questions were vague, and the interview lasted only about 5 minutes. I did not go onto the next round, but it would have been an essay followed by an in person interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview

    Not super hard. Interviews are conversational. Mostly looking for fit with firm. Great people. Group project wasn't hard but can be derailed by controlling teammate. Enthusiasm and love for Dallas is what they strive for. The employees are the most passionate people I've ever met for a job. Final round process is great.

    Interview

    they don't respond if you did not make it for an interview. they only respond if you did. In my opinion it seems very difficult to get hired as a buyer there, you have to go to their HQ for the training and then work your way up. I have 2 degrees, one in merchandising and 1 in business and retail experience but I have not received word yet.
