    Pros

    discount on merchandise. If you have a good boss things can be good. You can get a handle on new trends and make friends

    Cons

    Many times things are not based on performance on all levels. It is all about if you are in with the right people.

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Minimal supervision with empowering responsibilities. Great scheduling system. Potential to make pretty good commission earnings if you are a people person and like small talk.

    Cons

    People have no shame. On average, shoppers return 40% of what they purchase from you. Which means that 40% of the time is a waste and lose the commission.

    Advice to Management

    Management is supportive but should be more understanding that we have personal lives too when it comes to vacations.

    Pros

    - Employee discounts - Building relationships with customer, co-workers and management a like

    Cons

    - Opportunity for growth is hard to come by when working under certain manager's leadership - Wearing black clothing on a daily basis even during Summer - Cant make your own schedule according to your want. Therefore, no planning in advance if you want to book a trip

    Advice to Management

    Inspire employee to do well and complimenting them on their achievement and what they need to work on. In that case, employee can work on their weaknesses to develop themselves and contribute to the growth of the business.

    Pros

    Not a lot of experience required, great team to work with. Very knowledgeable employee work force who have been there for many years.

    Cons

    Big gap in compensation, some people are making 30k more or less for the exact same job without regard to tenure or experience. No support from senior management. The associate support positions are continuously being cut leaving you with a tremendous workload and no team.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your managers, come up with a better training program. Do not cut more support positions because when the BOH work isn't done, sales are missed.
