Hello- I have been reading about "in basket" tests...what is this? Thanks!
"...in basket interview session which is a timed test which you later review your answers and reasoning with a NM executive, group projects, and a drug test" www.glassdoor.com/Interview/Neiman-Marcus-Interview-Questions-E471_P5.htm
The questions became more complex as they wanted you to compare percentages (which you must calculate) comparing different stocks and item numbers within a certain month or year all within one question! on average, the questions take approx 2-3 minutes to thoroughly calculate yet they expect you to provide the right answer in 30 SECONDS! insane!
No questions were asked which was strange. Instead she said “We want to get a feel blah blah blah so ... go ‘head when you’re ready.” I gave them the run down on my background and then they asked if I had any questions for them. I asked a few questions of course and she asked if I had any further questions (okayyy) I said no but do you have any questions for me? She said no. The whole time I felt like they weren’t at all interested and maybe they had already found a candidate. Either way it was very off putting.
