    Pros

    -great discount -learned to clientele and made great client relationships -fun experience when learning new ideas or products I would work for them again as long as credit goals did not weigh so heavily. I shined in customer relations, not typing in info like a robot to give credit cards.

    Cons

    -older coworkers are quite rude, act like they are above you when you are 30 yrs younger and have the same position -continuing employment is based solely on credit card goals, not overall skills or ability to retain clients or sales

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the employees that bring clients into the store rather than those that open credit. Credit goals are fine, but customers can't be forced to open another card and many are already cardholders, and associates shouldn't be punished for it. Senior management was fine. I often felt as though the managers were discussing employees and various issues behind the employees' backs and did not come to said employee until it was too late.

    Pros

    The current shoe team is great to work with. When we did have a manager, she was very attentive and able to focus on us. They offer great employee discounts.

    Cons

    Management is short staffed making hard to get a hold of one if there is a customer issue. There hasn't been opportunities for growth. The register systems need to be badly upgraded.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more management or allow associates to make the call.

    Pros

    If you like to work with high end fashion you will like working with the clientele, but management is not the best.

    Cons

    There is a very big lack of communication amongst managers and co workers and they hire and promote people who do not know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people who work for you as they are the life blood of business and the company. Stop micro managing and start supporting your staff.

    Pros

    Employee discount is great, I think it's the best in industry. Vacation time at upfront - as soon as the employment began, the employee will get full vacation time. It's depend on which department you'll work, the commission (draw) is good if you can fight back bully from tenure sales employees.

    Cons

    I had to deal with bully by other sales people. The company intend to hire younger generation instead of the experienced individuals. No career advancement High employment turn over at all positions including management.

    Advice to Management

    Unsure if Bloomingdale's wants to long term business with loyal customers & employees or just get whoever benefits to company's profits like Macy's division. There are the reasons that so many employees were not happy how the management treats their employees. Please don't ignore about it, don't wait till someone files law suit against you.
