    I applied online – interviewed at Neiman Marcus (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    Very Easy going and not intimidating. Visual is a creative field and you can express yourself freely. They are strict on appearance . I have dark brown hair and had blonde color on the bottom which i had to dye all on color after. Visual is more laid back and can wear jeans, but for the interview always dress proper and nice.

    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.

    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.
