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

    Interview

    Two in-person interviews. Friendly, accommodating, punctual. There were a lot of people being interviewed for the same position, but it was the flagship store in Manhattan so they needed a lot of people. After I interviewed with the first girl, she immediately sent me to the second one. It took me a couple weeks to make it in for the first interview, but I was hired the same day after successfully interviewing with two people.
