    Pros

    Fun lively and relaxed environment, superior in house EDP program means that managers know what they are doing, and are accountable for their actions. My managers always made me feel like they were willing and able to work harder than their associates. Constant foot traffic, lucrative customer loyalty program, so achieving goals are easy

    Cons

    There's a new sale or promotion every 2 weeks. The customer is not the most sophisticated luxury shopper in the world Long hours Lots of foot traffic This left me feeling truly exhausted after my shifts and, like most retail workers, I had little work life balance. It's a giant store so there are Few opportunities for growth

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I really feel like the EDP program allows them to cultivated strong management. The three best managers I've had have all been at Bloomingdales

    I worked at Bloomingdale's (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The associates and the discount were fantastic!! I also loved the GM and Group Manager at the time, both are still with the company, but have been promoted.

    Cons

    The shoes dept was a rough one. Not a lot of growth opportunities if you were not White. The HR Manager was not unbiased, but I heard they let her go.

    Advice to Management

    Really Be an equal opportunity company...the World is diverse, Bloomie's Short Hills should give it a try.
