    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Neiman Marcus in November 2014.

    Interview

    They started me out with a short phone conversation then offered for me to fly to Dallas for the final round of interviews. The 2 day process was a sprint and I got to meet Executive Buyers and significant players on the Neiman Marcus team.

    Interview Questions

    • Being an assistant buyer is not the most glamorous job. You are running numbers and making spread sheets, not meeting with heads of fashion houses for extravagant dinners. How would you feel about doing less glamorous work?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Neiman Marcus (Irving, TX) in November 2014.

    Interview

    It was a 'mass' interview. We all got hired without questions asked. Then slowly they started firing one by one. New hirees did not know why. They were told if you can do 20 pages worth of packing, your ok. They got fired. Old employees stayed hired even if they were slacking off. Favoritism!!!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview

    Too dated to be helpful. Asked basic questions, just wanted to see if you got retail and basic management expertise of your presumed job function. THen dragged out money part of offer and made big deal over token improvements.

    Negotiation

    Hard, th y low-balled and the. Promised to make it up with annual reviews. Then lucky if you got 2% even with very good year.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus (Stanford, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by the end of the week via phone call, by the HR assistant. At this point I was briefly interviewed over the phone and asked why I am leaving my current job, why I want to work at Neiman Marcus and what customer service means to me. At the end of the call she said she'd love to have me come in for a interview. I then came in that next Wednesday for an interview with the HR manager and then she had me interview afterwards with 3 other people. At the end of this all the HR assistant said they'd be in touch with me. About 4 days later I was called and asked to come in for a second interview. During this interview they had me interview with a specific department manager they wanted to place me with and then I was given a tour of the store by this manager and then taken back to wait for the HR assistant again. She came in with an offer form and said they'd love to have me. I called later that day to accept the offer and she told me I would need to complete the drug test.
