    I have been working at Last Call by Neiman Marcus part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with - feels like a second family all caring for each other. Loyal customers come regularly with whom we establish great relationship. The company provides great benefits.

    Cons

    There are really nothing to complain about. This is an ideal place to work if you love being around people and helping them with their needs as you establish relationship with them.

    I worked at Last Call by Neiman Marcus full-time

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Decent benefits and not too bad for hourly wages

    Cons

    The management didn't really support or back you. They were about their success and not yours

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team, and take into consideration their interests and passions.

    Pros

    Fun team
    Wide range of products
    Meet some great people
    Employee discount

    Cons

    The company is closing 10 stores through early 2018. I believe they are trying to rebuild their reputation as the leading luxury retailer and having clearance centers that offer high end merchandise at a discounted rate isn't the best way to prove you own the 'high end' space. I would not recommend getting a job here as I don't see the Last Call sector of the company thriving much longer, nor do I see much career growth coming from this branch of the company.

    I worked at Last Call by Neiman Marcus full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent employee discount. Nice customer interactions. Closed on Christmas.

    Cons

    Absolutely unbalanced responsibilities/accountabilities within the store management team structure. Employees feel expendable and not valued. Serious staff cuts in the last few years have completely diminished team morale.

    Advice to Management

    Give the store managers 100% responsibility for all Human Resources functions. They should recruit, hire, train and develop, and coach their staff! Stop covering them in Teflon.

    I have been working at Last Call by Neiman Marcus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount is really good especially when combined with seasonal sales.

    Cons

    No overtime, under 40 hours but more than 35.

    Advice to Management

    Pay hourly employees more.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and managers would try to do their best

    Cons

    Hard work was not acknowledged.

    Advice to Management

    Must fix hourly based on rank and work done. Can't give special treatment to people because you are afraid that they will leave. That encourages others to act the same way.
