    Pros

    Selling at Bloomingdales is simple if you're ready to focus. I made a ton of money working only 15 hours a week. Most weeks were $300-$400 after taxes on a good week I made over $600. Some of my co workers complained about not making any money but they were the ones messing around and talking to each other and ignoring customers.

    Cons

    It can get irritating if people start stealing sales. You have to make sure you keep an eye on your customers or someone else could ring them up. In my particular department, if you were courteous and didn't steal sales, others returned the favor. I heard in other departments it is much more cut throat.

    Advice to Management

    I wish that they would simplify some of the sales. We would have like 3 different promotions going at once and it got confusing for the sales associates as well as the customers

  6. Great experience working with them and being apart of the logistics team.

    Pros

    The amount that you can sell has no limit and it has a great employee program. This company will allow you to move up if you open your mind to it.

    Cons

    The executive training program is not as great as it seems. It takes extremely too long to become a store manager.
