Sales Specialist
Newton, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

Interview Details – 4 interviews. Dept manager was more honest than others about pay. But I was lead to believe I would make a lot more money. They make job seem more rosy than what it is.

Interview Question – Typical interview. You should be asking most of the questions. Be professional & positive & dress the part. Don't believe everything they tell you.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I declined what they offered me, and they came pretty close to giving me what I wanted.

Sherman Oaks, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bloomingdale's in October 2010.

Interview Details – Hiring and interview process was not as difficult as i thought, they don't ask very professional questions, they must like you that is the only thing. If you be friendly, good looking and "able to connect" then you have more chances to get hired.

Garden City, NY

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Bloomingdale's in March 2011.

Interview Details – I went in for an interview and the 1st interview went well so then they asked if i wanted to wait and do a second interview in 20 minutes so I waited, and that interview went well too, then they had asked me for a third interview and said that they would call me. They called me maybe 5 days later to do the third interview and that went well and i had gotten offered the job and placed me, and filled out the application and forms so they could do a background check. They told me that they would call me when to start for training. I got the call 3 WEEKS later and they said that there was a mistake made that the position that was offered to me was not there and kept trying to offer me lower positions. I was without a job the whole time. The people were very friendly there, play up customer service skills to impress them.

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Bloomingdale's in January 2007.

Interview Details – I was hired as a seasonal employee but moved to a permeant position when one opened up. The process was very casual. The manager of the hiring department simply walked me down to HR, where I filled out paper work.

Interview Question – How would you handle a conflict with a customer?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was offered $15 an hour and negotiated to $16 an hour. Always ask for more.
