I have been working at Neiman Marcus full-time

Pros

If you're going to be standing on your feet for 9 hours a day, in a commissioned work environment you might as well make the most of your time. People who shop here have money. The ones who don't steer clear. With that said, you will be working more for your money as opposed to other commissioned based selling environments. Great benefits.

Cons

It's still retail. There are still those micromanagers, pointless performance reviews, (even when you are making your goals) working weekends, nights (my store was open until 7pm so I lucked out). Not much room to grow to management. No weekends off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None.

    I have been working at Neiman Marcus full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Best retail schedule. No late hours working. 2 Sundays and 1 Saturday off a month (plus, I usually take an additional Saturday off). Paid sick leave and PTO. Generous discount.

    Cons

    Much slower work environment than other department stores I have worked in. You have to really work to build your clientele.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Neiman Marcus full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No overtime, doesn't require any specific knowledge. Easy work.

    Cons

    Lot's of physical tasks to do (merchandising the floor, mark downs, changing hangers, etc.) that do not need any knowledge and it spoils all the good feelings of being a manager. Occasionally boring. Working place is in the disgusting stockroom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to new managers. Coaching, feedback on a regular basis are very important.
