Bloomingdale’s is America’s only nationwide, full-line, upscale department store and a division of Macy’s Inc. Currently we operate 37 department stores and an ever growing number of Bloomingdale’s The Outlet stores in 13 states as well as the always open and fashionable Bloomingdales.com. Bloomingdale’s also has an international presence in Dubai.
We are currently looking for leaders who will help shape our future. At Bloomingdale’s, we seek talented creative people with a passion and entrepreneurial spirit who enjoy the fast paced, exciting world of retail. Having a strong interest in fashion as well as being a natural collaborator helps! In short, we want people with a desire to grow professionally as well as personally because at Bloomingdale’s we provide the tools for both.
When you join the Bloomingdale’s family, you are now part of an organization deeply committed to giving back to the communities near and afar. Through strategic philanthropic marketing campaigns or local grass roots efforts, Bloomingdale’s is committed to making a difference.
Although Bloomingdale’s is part of a Fortune 100 Corporation, we hold true to the family values of our founding brothers, Joseph and Lyman Bloomingdale. As large as we may become, we will remain intimate and operate Bloomingdale’s with the utmost integrity like a family run business.
At Bloomingdale’s, we will always have passion for the business and compassion for each other. After all, we are like no other store in the world.
At Bloomingdale’s our associates are our number one differentiator. That is why we focus on finding talented, collaborative and creative people who are looking to discover their passion – not just find a job.
For over 140 years, Bloomingdale’s has been on the forefront of retail excellence and we are always looking for the next big idea. Our best initiatives across the three channels of business have been created, developed and executed by our people. We strongly believe great ideas come from all levels and tenure and that innovation is not limited to senior management. This is why we recruit people with an entrepreneurial spirit who are assertive and passionate.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Bloomingdale's.Interview Details
First applied online, followed by a group interview with people applying for all sorts of positions. It was all very trivial/superficial. A visual job requires a set of skills that's entirely different from a sales role. At no point did they ask anything relevant about the actual job itself and what I can bring the table. Meanwhile, I was ready to go with my portfolio and point of view on visuals, etc. If hiring is based on trivial questions like "what would I bring with me to a deserted island", then no wonder turnover is high. Never heard back from Bloomingdale's, not even to say that they passed.Interview Questions
