Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus in August 2013.

Interview Details

I applied online for a position in cosmetics. Was contacted shortly after and set up an interview with the department manager. I went in for my interview that took about an hour. Very friendly and professional overall. I was informed that they would run a background check and that I would be contact by HR to set up a 2nd interview that would be followed by a drug screening. It took about a week for them to get back to me. I was tentatively job offered on the phone and was told that it was pending a negative drug test that I had to complete at an auto generated location within 24 hours. After about 3 days I got a call that everything had cleared and I got the job.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is tedious!!! Mines took two mths and entailed 6 interviews! The interview with the store manager was intimidating and they seem a bit disorganised as I was going back and forth as they apparently werent't liasing with each other.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They offered me $23 but because I know they usually start at $25 and go all the way up to $28 why would I accept that? Anyways so I informed the HR person making me the offer that I need a minimum of $25 in a couple hours she called back and gave me $25.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process seemed excessive; not the number of interviews but the time between each interview. It took about 4 weeks for me to get to a final interview because they require you to go through HR, then the department manager and then you have to interview with one or more cosmetic vendors. The executives from the cosmetic companies are usually not local so you'll have to wait to meet with them when they happen to be in town. The communication between the store and the cosmetic executives seems to be lacking a bit as well.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process is tedious but well worth it. I first submitted an open app on the website. Ultimately, I was hired after interview and negotiation process took just over 3 weeks. It consisted of 8 interviews between the company and and the brand I represent…Area Dir. of brand (2), Acct. Exec of brand (1), Merchandise Manager (1), Dept. Mgr (1), and HR (3).
    Of course you encounter the same attitudes in any beauty department but over all this has to be one of the most pleasant experiences I have had.

    Negotiation Details
    Initial offer was low but that is the nature of most HR Reps. I was fortunate to be in a position to know the salary range from an insider. It took an additional 8 days but I was finally able to talk them up from $24 to $28 per hour.

    I was offered $22/hour firm and was told by HR they were not flexible on the pay. I accepted as I really need a job. Several months later I was able to negotiate to $28/hour because I was considering resigning.
