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

Pros

discount, the stores are generally clean, fun and busy atmosphere, great merchandise, non commission so friendly workers

Short you on hours, un realistic sales goals, sale after sale after sale, required to make sales calls weekly (pester customers and then they dont come back), stress and pressure of opening new accounts weekly, super political environment, employee turn over is insane your always promised you can "go somewhere" in the company ... you wont

Advice to Management

get off your high horse and properly train and communicate with your department

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company fully tests all computer program upgrades to limit issues when new programs go live and they seem to act quickly to resolve glitches when they are discovered.

    Cons

    Inability to eliminate poor performing employees from a department due to lack of a real HR manager in branch. The amount of time required to document all acts of insubordination became a second career for me and I felt very unsupported by management.

    Advice to Management

    Ugh, why does everything have to be so political? Several times I witnessed incompetence being rewarded with promotions while other smart, hard working individuals were passed over. Thankfully, I do not feel I was held back at any time.
