Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (San Francisco, CA).

Interview

It was generally relaxed and friendly, more conversational than interrogative. The questions were basic and non specific. The interviewer was kind and candid and answered a lot of questions that I had about the position in an honest way. The interview lasted about half an hour or so maybe a little bit longer or a bit less than that, I can't remember. It was overall pleasant and not very stressful.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Interview

    Interview was pretty simple and straight-forward for a retail postilion. I interviewed with the department manager first and then with HR afterward. The hardest thing for me was deciding what to wear. NM has a reputation and i wanted to make a good impression. That should have been the least of my worries!
