I have been working at Neiman Marcus full-time for less than a year

Pros

amazing clothes and products and discounts but I spent all my money there

Cons

rude caty snotty staff, very competitive staff, upper management stand offish and nasty, to many staff to little customers can get boring, not seeing daylight being trapped in a department store all day, only get commission if you break your target and if you dont break your target then that negative gets carried over to next month so you end up in a big hole which you can never get out of and you get unfair targets and its unrealistic sales goals

Advice to ManagementAdvice

reward staff more

    I worked at Neiman Marcus full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    High end retailer, friendly atmosphere, interesting clients, event driven. Never boring and always up-to-date fashions.

    Cons

    Lack-lustre management, high turn-over rate, commission only pay led to negativity among salespeople

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some quality time looking for top-talent. They are out there!
