    Cons

    •Management is unresponsive to employee needs
    •Management has a vast superiority complex
    •Big Brother: Loss Prevention is more concerned about watching employees than customers
    •HR tends to look out for management's needs as opposed to employee needs
    •Very little room for growth within the company
    •Payment is generally lower than average hourly, or draw vs commission
    •The store is typically very slow, while the floors are overflowing with commission sales associates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no need to micromanage employees, they are hired as "Sales Professionals." Constructive criticism is good, but not when it verges on being condescending.

    If the company wishes to thrive, it needs to account for employee needs, and must stop brushing them off.

    The company, under new executive management, has take a turn for the worse. Unless it changes its leadership style, revenue will continue to fall, the turnover rate will continue to rise, and the company will not succeed.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent training & work-life balance

    Cons

    Set in the past in too many ways - boring/stodgy, dress code, too much HR/corporate vibe. Low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on future not past marketing media and more team building. Talk to and communicate with staff instead of blindly dolling out work.
