    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied and then received a email and then call regarding completing a 12 page personality test. Once the test was finished they set up a 1 on 1 email at the store location.

    The interview with HR was directed mostly about the contents of my resume and verifying that i had worked at these places. She double-checked the dates with me and asked me straight forwards questions.

    After the HR interview I met with the manager of the department who asked me logistic questions about schedule and training. Much more friendly.

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    First you meet with the Human Resource manager to determine if you are a good fit for the company then you meet with the department manager and the merchandise manager. They can ask very specific question to see if you can do the job and also want to know if you have experience or a good clientele base.
