    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview

    Very casual, easy going and friendly. Overall not intimidating. May take a while to land interview but hiring process is quick once interviewed. Ask questions about retail experience, interest in film, ability to work under pressure, etc. Must be willing to work hard and multi-task. Personal selling is also an aspect of position so must have selling skills to offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    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!

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Neiman Marcus (Charlotte, NC (US)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Was called by HR asst. setup in person interview was kind of rushy about setting up interview...but quick process BUT I called 2 weeks prior to him setting up interview they do walk-ins M-Th So under that situation NOT so quick HR never returned my call HR asst did. Nothing really the HR assistant in the Charlotte location (fatty man) was uninterested when i walked in. He lied about the position tells me I a better fit for support(warehouse) because I would not be a good sales but I applied for a intern which required a college degree ...he was unprofessional rude and SUPER fat. He never asked any questions just rambled about NM like it was the best job in the world. And described the customers as rude clearly he doesn't like his job

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus (Dallas, TX (US)).

    Interview

    Face to face with supervisor. If supervisor like you then you meet the manager. Second interview meet director. Director gives you an aptitude test on retail math etc. Human resources does a background check, credit history. Since this is a financial job a poor credit history will disqualify you for the position.
