Former Employee - Group Manager  in  New York, NY

Pros

Good compensation, good vacation benefits. 3 weeks after your first year and opportunity to earn holiday comp days.

Cons

Very little recognition if any by store managers, senior managers are finding ways to "get you" during visits instead of finding ways to direct you or teach you to be better at your job. It's all about image and how polished and professional you look. Some managers are black listed because their tie is not knotted tightly during CEO visits

    Although it's sales, this job is for college students, not graduates.

    Pros

    Not a lot of micromanagement is practiced allowing for a bit of freedom and independent thinking, versus always having to get a manager's approval for every single little decision.

    Cons

    If you get paid hourly plus commission, that's great. That means some guarantee of money, the more hours you put. If you're strictly commission, good luck, because like Nordstrom, Bloomingdales does not have a return policy, therefore customers can return anything they want to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to suggestions, because we are the ones that knows what happens on the sales floor and follow through with those suggestion, especially if they can make tremendous differences to the profit we make for Bloomingdales.

    Former Employee - Sales Specialist in Century City, CA

    Pros

    commission (depending on area can be very good)
    the discount

    Cons

    the century city store has too much politics going on. there is absolutely no growth into management without a 4 year degree. The manager I had gave no positive feedback. there is always an excuse on why someone can't move departments. I hate the dress code

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    yes the customer is important but you have to remember your employee is what gets the customer to become and client with repeat visits
