Fashion Illustrator (Former Employee), White Plains, NY – April 7, 2014
It was just lovely working with Neiman Marcus for their one day event. It was so fun sketching the models with the new spring trends. All of the managers and associates were so helpful with anything I needed. I can't wait to work with them again!

Stock Associate (Former Employee), Plano, TX – March 26, 2014
Pros: 20% discount
Cons: work for dillards/macys and find a con here. you wont..
This company does everything "by the book", For a retail store it feels very "corporate".The sales are there. Knew a sales associate that sold so much he had a personal assistant. Great training, great opportunity for advancement. I def recommend this place.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Miami, FL – March 9, 2014
Working for Neiman Marcus it have been a daily learn experience. Not only about fashion and how to sell, also about how we have to interact with the clients and how we have to act to make them feel comfortable, and also I have learned how difficult but interesting the process of selling could be. It is a very competitive environment, because there are – more... lots of associates trying to catch a client and you as an individual has to give your best everyday to become a new client into a regular and loyal client. I keep daily communication with my clients. It is a very pleasant experience when clients send photos or texts back showing how happy and confident they feel after a purchase. – less

We would start the day off by unloading the truck. Learn how to do send UPS and FEDEX shipment off. Management would get in on holiday when get back up. when there nothing to do we would help other co-worker out.
Lead Sales Associate/cashier- Ladies Departments (Former Employee), Sawgrass Mills Mall, Sunrise – March 4, 2014
Pros: customer service first
Cons: did not care about damaging merchandise in rush to restock.
A typical day would start with calling clients. Restocking & rearranging the entire sales floor for new merchandise, even on Black Friday. The hardest part was the racks and racks of tried on clothes that had to be returned to sales floor continuously. The most enjoyable part was the satisfaction of a customer with their purchase.
Challenging place to work. I enjoyed the years I worked. Promote from outside instead of training for a upper level position from inside

Packing and Order Filling (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – February 24, 2014
Pros: work hours ae great during christmas time
Cons: work hours are extremely slow all around the year until christmas.
Management favoritism is above all else. Immediate suspension upon an accusation made by another coworker. Hours vary drastically from 2 hrs to 9. When it' slow, it's so slow that bills are hard to pay. When it's fast(peak season) you are expected to work 12+ hours daily(even if you have other responsibilities.Been working there for almost two years. – more... Learned how to order fill and pack. – less
Loss Prevention Investigator (Current Employee), Plano, TX – February 18, 2014
Pros: coworkers, and atmosphere.
Cons: they pay could be a lot higher.
A typical day at work involves monitoring the CCTV and walking the floor to prevent shortage from both internal and external affairs. I have learned a lot from the jobs, but I feel that the compensation is very low.
Returns Associate (Former Employee), Irving, TX – February 10, 2014
Pros: lots of ot after christmas/free lunch sometimes
Cons: can be hard and really stressful at times
A typical day would start off opening Fed Ex boxes customers return for credit and checking it for damages and defects. I learned a lot working at Neiman's about the fashion industry. Management was ok, but could be a lot better about caring more about employees than meeting production goals. Co-workers are ok, easy to get along with. The hardest part – more... of my job was meeting production goals each week.
I generally liked this job, but too much to do for what they want you to do for the pay. That is why there is such a high turn over rate in the Returns Dept. – less
