    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    generous benefits, adequate paid vacation, admirable community partnerships and philanthropic outreach, associates create bonds like friends- not just coworkers- and foster their own sense of teamwork, on-trend merchandise & great discount

    Cons

    creativity and abstract thought are crushed. productivity based solely on numbers (sales, credit accounts opened) and SMs pit associates against each other in competition. SMs don't know their people and spend too little time on the sales floor. despite what they promise, internal promotions are nearly nonexistent (even when exceeding performance expectations). no scheduling stability unless you're a student, no weekends off during holiday quarter. the single function HR successfully fulfills is monitoring dress code. only liars & suck ups thrive. okay for a summer job, but not the company for anyone looking to build a long term career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get to know the ambitions, qualifications, work ethic, and degree of education of the sales drones whose talents are being wasted in your store

    I worked at Bloomingdale's

    Pros

    The discount is great! The only good thing about this company is the discount, period.

    Cons

    The company tries to get the most out of you and then gets rid of you. You either work mornings, which allow you to be finished by 6:30PM or nights, which allow you to finish by 9:30PM. Basically, your whole day is occupied at Bloomingdales, not matter which shift you are working.
    They set impossible goals for associates to meet and if you do not meet these goals a certain number of times, they fire you. It is a very stressful environment considering it is only a retail job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to hire management that is educated, as most of the staff are clueless.
