    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (White Plains, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Brief process with the mangers of the department. They ask you many questions, also ask questions back. It was smooth sailing. Quick process as well, the manager was very nice and had a smile the whole time.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview

    met with department manager and discussed basic background and work experience. Also discussed how to hand disputes among employees and how comfortable I was merchandising the floor without direction. And last but not least there are a lot of questions about your comfort level with an I phone because all employees have one and being tech savy is important.

    Merchandising Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview

    The hiring process actually consisted of many rounds. If HR liked your resume, you were invited to take a simple online retail math test. After that, I had a 30 minute phone interview. Next, there was a short essay that I had to write on a relevant part of Neiman Marcus' current business. It ended with a 30 minute video interview with an executive within Neiman Marcus.

    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.

    Corporate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Garden City, NY
    No Offer
    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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview followed by an in person interview, both were with the same HR recruiter and the general manager. They were extremely nice while interviewing and made it seem like more of a conversation between friends than an interview which I liked because it calmed my nerves and allowed me to be myself.
