    Pros

    Enjoy working in the cosmetic dept. at Bloomingdales in San Francisco. It's a very large store with a lot of fun and unique people!

    Cons

    One challenge working here is that the store is downtown and sits right between Mission st and Market st, which can sometimes bring a not so pleasant crowd into the store.

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's

    Pros

    Good company to work for, good pay and benefits. Employee discount is like no other! Sometimes you can get merchandise anywhere from 20 to 80% off retail value.

    Cons

    Not a lot of coaching for personal growth. Very bureaucratic: only get praise, recognition and promotion if you are "buddy-buddy" with management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to get to know your employees, help them grow because they will help you in the end. Be fair.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Palm Beach Gardens, FL

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, start pay was decent for a sales associate within a department store, direct deposit every Friday, Awesome discount 20% off & monthly double discount days & ontop of sale & clearance prices.

    Cons

    Fitting rooms customers just trash them and leave huge piles of clothes on the floor. They can try on however many items they want and all the fitting rooms are open. There maybe only two employees working so staffing was an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's better to be over staffed then understaffed. An employee could call out sick, go home sick, or go home early. Also during breaks need coverage especially in larger departments within the store to be able to provide good customer service and keep up with fitting rooms, straightening, go backs, etc.

    Worked as a Sales Associate, it was very hard to make any money there because customers had too many returns

    I worked at Bloomingdale's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They had good employee discount and lots of sales, That was the main reason I stayed there after I realized income is not as they promised when they were hiring

    Cons

    Management was good but overall store policies were not such as their return policy. I have had customers return dresses after 5 months and it would still be taken off my comission
