    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Walnut, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Applied Online, got a call back a few days later. Had a one on one interview with the HR department. He was a bit in a hurry right when i got there so that made me even more nervous. He asked me about 3 simple questions and asked if i had any questions for him, so i asked about the company. He then asked me my availability which was Full time. He then again asked me if i had any other questions for him. I did asked him a final question, he answered then AGAIN asked if i had any other questions for him.. Wait? i thought I was being interviewed! After i said no, he answered all my concerns he then stood up and said "Alright thank you." I was very very shocked. Grabbed my stuff and told him to have a great day. Even if i got i call back, i think i would have declined considering how i was treated.

    Interview

    Quick, friendly and informative. Not worried about my lack of retial experience but more interested in my overall sales experience. They were looking for the right fit in the personality department. And the training came along afterward. I'm very happy the process was short and sweet

    Interview

    Unprofessional interview. I was disappointed for such a big company, especially Neiman Marcus. I expected a class act and their interview process was not good. They called me over the phone and scheduled an interview. I drove an hour to get to the interview and then they called me just 20 minutes before my scheduled interview time and said they had to reschedule. I was sitting in the parking lot, well dressed and well prepared, waiting to go in when they called so I was already frustrated with them. We rescheduled for a couple of days later. When I finally got to the interview, the woman who interviewed me was constantly excusing herself and at one point asked me to wait in the lobby. I think in half an hour we started and stopped the interview at least three or four times. She hardly asked me much of anything, and she seemed like she just wanted to wrap it up and get out of there. At this point I just was not impressed and was not interested in working there.

    Interview Questions

    • I really don't think there were any difficult questions at all. I expected the interview to be more in depth. I also was not able to ask the questions I wanted answered because she was in a hurry to wrap it up.   Answer Question

Mainly an engaging conversation on general

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Easy but detailed... the person conducting my interview was very friendly but made it clear that our time together was serious and they were looking for specifics. Neiman Marcus focuses on customer service and places high emphasis on always going above and beyond for our clients. Once i complete the interview with the HR team member, I was introduced to the manager of the department I was interviewing for, and had a separate interview, on the spot, with said manager.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Neiman Marcus in April 2013.

    Interview

    I did not have any sales experience, but anyway they called me. The interview went fine. They should not have wasted my time; even though, they knew I did not have retail (specially high end) experience... I felt like I was just a number to fill in to look like HR doing their job.
