    Average Interview

    Application

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Very long, yet very thorough. I was called for background and drug screenings. Interview went very well though. Interviewed with 4 people at four different times. As crazy as it sounds, and as intricate and time-consuming as they were, I actually enjoyed Them! They wanted the best of the best at that time, and I was amongst the running.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus in January 2016.

    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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    The interview process was really quick and easy. I applied in-store. They take you to their customer service level to fill it out on one of their computers. I was contacted about 2 weeks later. I interviewed with the HR manager and the the department manager. The interview was relatively fast - no more than an hour. They asked basic fit questions. The company hires a lot of people with little to no high end retail experience so if you have ANY experience in retail sales, the interview will seem easy.

    Assistant Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Dallas, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview, one in person with the marketing manager, one with the director. All of the interviews were brief. The one with the director was a little intimidating. I got the call with an offer a few hours after my final interview. I wish I wouldve pushed for a larger salary. Negotiate.

    Application

    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.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Dallas, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Hiring process was quick. Manager called me for an interview. I had 2 interviews: one with the HR Director, another with the Call Center Manager. I was hired the day after the interview, and started that following Monday.

    One thing I will point out is that the Call Center Manager was VERY rude in my interview. She implied that I was lying on my resume.
