The first interview was with one of the prospective Managers. It was a great experience. They sent me an e-mail a week after for my second interview. This time I got an overview of what my job entails and what was expected of me.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Bloomingdale's (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was group interviewed in soho. There're seven candidates and one manager sitting at the meeting table. The manager was nice and the interview processed as a conversational meeting. We have to be proactive to say whatever that comes to mind. Never stay quite and just smile along the process.

She looked over my resume, asked a couple of questions about my past experience, and my knowledge of the department and Bloomingdales. I was offered the job on the spot.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bloomingdale's (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process took about a week. I met with one of their HR Reps who asked me a couple of behavioral questions and many future goal questions as well. He didn't make it an interesting interview. Just kept repeating the same answer, told me the pay was $14 an hour and then started turning the interview about himself and not about the company...

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bloomingdale's (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    First they do a group interview and then call you back for individual interviews with a manager from each department. The group interview is very laid back to the extent where some may even consider it unprofessional. Just be very aggresive and outgoing to standout.

    Interview

    Be confident, warm and professional. Have absolutely no ego on the interview. They will be impressed. On the group interview answer all the questions first. They will ask about a time you went above and beyond for a customer. So be prepared with a great story.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bloomingdale's (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    After submitting your application online, the hiring manager contacts you for a group interview. There were 3 managers sitting at a table facing the candidates. It was meant to be more conversation based. After this, if selected, you are emailed for another interview with a manager of a specific department/brand.

    Reasons for Declining

    Wouldn't speak about brand I initially applied for. Also did not offer or "have" any other options of the same standard.
