    Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Last Call by Neiman Marcus (Central Valley, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on Indeed.com and received an email a couple days later. Set up an interview a few days after. This was my first interview and I'm happy that it was pretty laid back. It was just me and the head of relations, since the hiring manager was not in. Had to wait a couple minutes when I first came and then went into the back into his office. I was pretty nervous but stayed calm. Since I had no work experience he asked if I had any volunteer work ect. We suddenly got into a conversation about theatre and actors. He showed me one of the catalogs with outrageous things you can buy through Neiman Marcus. He then offered me a temorary/seasonal job, but I had to re apply through their website when I got home. There was also a background check/drug test but I never got that far. Ultimately ended up never going back because I was offered a better job somewhere else.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Last Call by Neiman Marcus (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I interviewed with Last Call and would have decided to accept the position had it not been for the unpleasant and unfortunate atmosphere. My first interview was with the hiring manager for the store and she was 25 minutes late to meeting with me. I was patient and waited near the fitting rooms and was appalled at the behavior of the associates who were there. They were extremely rude to customers waiting to try on garments, and one associate even rolled her eyes when asked for a fitting room. There were no pleasantries or smiles at all. I thought maybe it was just a bad day (no excuse at all) for those two women working. My interview was very brief and by the books and I felt the hiring manager didn't ask any pertinent questions, but just went off of my resume. She was pleasant to talk with, however. I was invited back for a second interview a few days later and met with the department manager. She was also 10 minutes late. I again waited by the fitting rooms and could not believe the same two associates were there and had the same behavior towards every customer that wanted to try on. One associate even went as far as to tell a larger gentleman that the dress shirts he had selected would not fit him, because he is too big. For this reason alone, I chose not to accept the offer of employment. Your job is customer service and that behavior is beyond unacceptable.

    Reasons for Declining

    Based on the behavior of the other associates, I would not want to work with such rude and unprofessional people.

    Operations Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied thru employee referral. Had brief phone interview to distinguish my qualifications. In person interview with district manager was very cold and uncomfortable. She never discussed in detail what job entailed until end of interview. Could of saved us both time if she discussed in initial phone interview. She asked if I'd be interested in lower position which I declined due to my experience and the much lower salary. Then she said she'd call in a few days. A week later she calls to offer me the same lower position in a different state. It was embarrassing and odd.
