    Decent pay compared to other dept. stores, but there is stress.

    I worked at Neiman Marcus full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This position wasn't as demanding as other similar positions at other department stores. Also, the pay was much better than other companies.

    Cons

    For this position, you are a bit mistreated depending on which department you work for. You get a bit more mental stress for departments with higher-end clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the amount of stress these associates sometimes endure for the little pay they receive compared to the commissioned sales associate.

    I have been working at Neiman Marcus full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Potential for great pay
    - Amazing discounts that can exceed 50% off
    - Awesome perk and incentives to motivate you

    Cons

    - High expectations
    - If associates get a return the commission from it is taken out of their pay unless it's been over a year
    - The better you do, the more management expects from you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so hard on your employees when their numbers fall because your whole department's numbers have dropped. Clearly, it isn't a problem with a single individual at that point. Don't make employees handle issues that arise from other employees unfairly stealing sales/commissions...that is your job as the boss. If you want to accept merchandise returns after months or when they have clearly been used then do so on the house and don't make your associates' paychecks suffer for it.
