    I worked at Bloomingdale's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Clothes are gorgeous..got to see all the new trends..good discount..bosses were good for the most part..some of the girls were really nice and fun to work..I had a good time working there and I regret leaving..I had a full time job during the day and worked here part time at night it got to be too much but it was a good learning experience but the items are pretty expensive so I couldn't afford much but they were amazing to look at I did get a michelle watch, david yurman necklace and some clothes at great discounts on 20 20 20 days I believe that was the ratio..when I worked there we had to wear all black which I LOVE I think it looks very chic and uniformed but you can make it your own by adding accessories..I was hourly on the floor straightening up, at the register, cleaning up fitting rooms

    Cons

    customers can be nightmares and leave horrific messes in the changing rooms that you have to clean up..one time I went into a fitting room and there was a gigantic pile of clothes inside out all over like a tornado..some customers looked and treated the employees like dirt on the floor..bosses want employess to push credit cards really hard..many of the customers already have them..some of the employees are difficult to work with it can be cut throat..the discount was pretty good but working part time there if I bought anything it took my whole paycheck..when its really busy it gets crazy in there and the clothes are a mess and takes forever to put back and when its slow a lot of folding has to be done which isn't bad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I didn't have any problems..just pushing credit cards was draining at times

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

    Pros

    Lots of in store events, appearances, co-worker sales, and overall good feeling. Employee appreciation. Union.

    Cons

    A bad manager will destroy that good feeling above. My manager went wrong by playing favorites, being too lenient with reps who violate company policies and procedures but produce numbers. It is possible to advance there but MY manager was not good at this. The benefits suck and are expensive!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Crack down on favoritism, and just because someone has been there 20yrs doesnt mean they get to make their own rules, that only they can follow.
