    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Bloomingdale's in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted after filing out online application to make an appointment online. It allows you to choose an upcoming time slot to come in for interview. I made an appointment for the following week. Arriving early is good (to calm yourself & collect your thoughts).

    I was met by two recruiters who asked a few questions. Then they informed me that, if invited back, that I would only get show my portfolio in the next stage (they were NOT the Bloomingdales managers I needed to see).

    The next day I was asked by that recruiter to email him some of my portfolio, which I did. He did confrim receipt and that he'd pass it along.

     I am still awaiting word.

    I applied online – interviewed at Bloomingdale's in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Actually applied on their website then got an email to set up an interview. I thought it was a terrible way to hire because your answers will determine if you get an interview. You could actually beat the system by typing in certain answers to get the interview. Although it's a way of eliminating job seekers easier, it's not necessarily the best.

 Current Sales Associate in New York, NY

Pros: “Great pay! You work off of commission, if you don't meet sales goals you still make 9.50/hour. I worked in a fast paced location in New York City so you typically always exceed sales goals.” Full Review
