Current Employee - Merchandise Manager in New York, NY
Current Employee - Merchandise Manager in New York, NY

I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (more than an year)

Pros

You get to manage high end vendors and brands. Have the opportunity to be a business owner. Great specialist contracts. Continuous contact with the buyers and planners. Best recognition programs I have ever seen. In NYC the staff/stock associates are unionized, helping job protection. Fun, energetic, exciting environment. You meet a lot of great people making your work day much more enjoyable. Senior management encourages success.

Cons

In management they expect a lot of change but do not allow the man power to get the job done. Customer issues result in inventory loss through marking items out of stock and customer accommodation. In NYC many stock/sales associates are very tenured and have lack of motivation, making it hard to motivate staff. Can be very political.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I was a manager for 2 years. It is a self motivating job that requires a lot of energy.

    Pros

    all pros, the store was ok. The store was good when they gave that double discount. But... that was about it. Rude sales associates. Trying to steal sales.

    Cons

    no cons, the store was ok. I was picked over a position for a dept because i was non "what they were looking for" racist

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give me more money. Please and thank you

    Pros

    Management is pretty hands off, but in turn the overall business suffers. There is not much I can say that is positive

    Cons

    -can't get a consistent schedule
    -business is purely based on promotions and coupons, attracting an unfaithful clientele.
    -Stores re very dirty, visual and safety standards are deplorable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your culture to something remotely resembling Nordstrom
