    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Austin, TX) in September 2013.

    Interview

    It took forever. Three separate interviews with many different managers. Then a week to get an offer contingent on passing a drug test, which I did so shortly thereafter I started. Each manager wanted to make sure I was right for the particular position which was a challenging one to say the least, so maybe that's why it took longer.

    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.
