typical day at work
Packer/Picker (Former Employee), Irving, TXAugust 28, 2015
I enjoyed packing with other employees and answering questions that trainees had. I would pack for a couple hours and then when the volume was high i would move to a different department to clear out work and make jams and the lines was clear. To keep the production going and for employees to keep there production numbers.

high challenge level for commission based sales
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Palo Alto, CAAugust 11, 2015
Pros: free lunches, free gift cards, employee discounts
Cons: standing all day, dealing with rude co-workers and customers
challenging environment with constant new ways to sell introduced by the company, high stress levels, hard on feet because always standing.

Co-workers can be cut throat and sharks...

Hardest part of job is the returns and standing all day long

Most enjoyable part is meeting nice people and making them happy with their purchases

Management is so-so

One of the best companies in retail.
Luxury Sales Training Specialist (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCAugust 9, 2015
Pros: Discount, clientele
Cons: schedule, commissioned base, black out dates
Retail is a tough industry to work in when it comes to work/life balance and schedule. However Neiman Marcus is one of the better companies to work for. The benefits and discount are fair.

The challenge in this line of work is the room for advancement and it's 100% commission base.
