Pros

The discount and if you're into fashion, it's the place

Cons

Management turns a deaf ear to everyone except a select few... Customers are not the nicest -they have a nasty sense of entitilement

Advice to Management

If you're a slave to fashion, it's your place; if not run away as fast as you can.

    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 Management

    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.
