    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus (Walnut Creek, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    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.
