    For the retail industry, this can be a fun and interesting place to work!

    Merchandise Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsFun staff, fun managers, nice setting and atmosphere, interesting customers, benefits, etc. (in short, pretty standard for retail, but upscale, so that gives it a nice touch, as compared to other places).

    ConsDepending on your role, the pay varies (sales vs. non sales roles). Obviously, if in sales, it can vary even more and is really what you make of it. Some sales employees did VERY well (yes, this meant selling a huge amount of products, but at this point, it is really something you either love or don't love to do).

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone really, my experience was almost always pleasant. They have a pretty good structure in place, in terms of lots of roles for each little niche.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A learning experience, but one I did not wish to learn.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsNice people
    Clean environment
    Relaxed (depending on position)

    ConsNo overtime
    Lack of growth
    Insensitive management

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust work on communication with employees. Those above seem to disregard those below. Concerns should be addressed beyond the ears.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    it's very easy

    Department Manager (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsNo overtime, doesn't require any specific knowledge. Easy work.

    ConsLot'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 Senior ManagementPay more attention to new managers. Coaching, feedback on a regular basis are very important.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I had a great experience working for Neimans, but didn't see too much room for growth.

    Product Specialist (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsOne of the best reasons to work for Neimans is the fact that they have an amazing reputation for being very fashion forward and carrying a variety of high-end brands- the plus to that is being able to actually afford them because of Neiman's amazing discount!

    ConsThey didn't have the most efficient computer system for keeping track of clients and they didn't have access to email. The only way to send a client at email was to contact them from your personal computer or smartphone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would definitely consider upgrading the computer system with something that could combine features of email and a program like Microsoft Outlook.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Nieman Marcus

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsThere are lots of perks working in luxury retail. We as employees recieve a large discount as well as free clothes and gifts when we hit certin goals.

    ConsThe commission rate is very low and people in our economy don't spend money like they used to 5 years ago. If customers return merchindise the commission is reversed from the sales assiocates, even if the merchindise is damaged or altered.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease change the return policy, there is not a time limit on how long customers can make returns and up to a year to reverse the commission for sales associates.
