    Assistant Buyer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview Details

    They asked very easy and simple questions about my resume, aspirations, and why I wanted to work for Neiman Marcus. Very laid back interview. No tricky questions. The interview was at Texas A&M University with a college recruiter. I did not get a second interview because I had one more semester left and they only wanted graduating seniors for their interviews at that point in time.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Neiman Marcus in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through my university, and then I took an online personality and retail test. After that, I had a phone interview, but it wasn't at all the interview that I prepared for. The questions were vague, and the interview lasted only about 5 minutes. I did not go onto the next round, but it would have been an essay followed by an in person interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview Details

    Not super hard. Interviews are conversational. Mostly looking for fit with firm. Great people. Group project wasn't hard but can be derailed by controlling teammate. Enthusiasm and love for Dallas is what they strive for. The employees are the most passionate people I've ever met for a job. Final round process is great.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Neiman Marcus.

    Interview Details

    First you meet with the Human Resource manager to determine if you are a good fit for the company then you meet with the department manager and the merchandise manager. They can ask very specific question to see if you can do the job and also want to know if you have experience or a good clientele base.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Walnut Creek, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Neiman Marcus in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied and then received a email and then call regarding completing a 12 page personality test. Once the test was finished they set up a 1 on 1 email at the store location.

    The interview with HR was directed mostly about the contents of my resume and verifying that i had worked at these places. She double-checked the dates with me and asked me straight forwards questions.

    After the HR interview I met with the manager of the department who asked me logistic questions about schedule and training. Much more friendly.

    Too dated to be helpful. Asked basic questions, just wanted to see if you got retail and basic management expertise of your presumed job function. THen dragged out money part of offer and made big deal over token improvements.

    Negotiation Details
    Hard, th y low-balled and the. Promised to make it up with annual reviews. Then lucky if you got 2% even with very good year.
