    Assistant Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview

    Overall, I had to do a lot of follow-up and leg work to progress through the interview process or get any feedback at all. The communication I did have with NM representatives was great, but I wish that they didn't go AWOL on me, even after I was asked to follow up with them.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Dallas, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview Process went well. Everytime they were very polite. The math test was definitely pretty tough. After the math test there was a personality test. The phone interview went really well, they asked a lot of questions related to the company and a few about my experiences. The essay was kind of tough because it required a lot of thinking. The skype interview was where I had trouble. I thought it was going well but towards the end I realized it didn't go as well as I hoped.

    Clerical Support Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Garden City, NY).

    Interview

    My interviewer did not tell me the location of the interview so I assumed it was at the mall the store is located in and I was wrong. I was not the only interviewee who had this problem so that shows a lack of organization/good verbal communication. That almost made me lose all interest in the job, but I apologized to my interviewer and she was understanding and made sure to call me twice to make sure I knew where the interview was located. When I walked into the office for the interview whoever was at the front desk gave me a dirty look and was snobby which obviously made me want to work there even more. The interview was the longest most intense interview I have ever had. I think it lasted for 1.5 hours. Not even interviews in the actual fashion industry are that intense. She asked a lot of behavioral questions. I guess I did well because when I asked what the next step in the hiring process was she immediately spoke to her boss to have an interview with me. He seemed very unprepared and uninterested. He told me the next step in the hiring process was to have an interview with HR. I haven't heard back since and honestly don't care because the interview process left such a bad taste in my mouth.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Dallas, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Multiple steps in the process. You start by submitting an application online, then you take a retail math test, if you pass that, you will get a 30 minute phone interview with a recruiter. Asks questions about your experience, leadership style, learning style, future goals, and why you want to work for them. If you pass that, you have to write a 2-page essay responding to a question/problem. After that, you interview with an executive over video or in person.

    Interview

    I had two different people in deferent Upper Executive roles. I was felt at ease, they were transparent issues in department: people, sales and merchandise performance.

    I've interview over past three years at multiple Luxury stores in San Francisco, CA. All have either called me back giving me ares to work or have replied to me emails asking for my career and salt development. Some are now mentors, part of my network and still future bosses.

    There are been reports written in 3 and 4th quarter 2014 have been written about how we have to visit how we recruit and say no to a candidate for " people benching for manpower strategies.

    It's just sad they 100% reflect the brands culture of brands they carry

    These brands are carried at Neiman Marcus.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Glendale, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The HR person said I was too assertive. I thought that was odd considering it was a sales position. I had to email and call just to follow up on our conversations about the position and required paperwork. I found the management to be very lackadaisical.
