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

Pros

Interesting, dynamic work environment.
Decent moneymaking potential.
Great employee discounts on merchandise.

Cons

Very corporate, often incompetent work environment. It doesn't take a genius to get into retail, even if it's "higher end" in Bloomingdales case. I found management fairly cold, dry, and disengaging.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward salespeople with jobs based on merit, skill, and potential and focus less on age/seniority.

    Unfortunately with retail work, you do have the longer hours, especially during the holidays. However, that is to be expected with retail.

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great discounts & offers for employees from time to time.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, cut throat, negative work atmosphere. Very little support from dept. managers, they are just a figure head. Upper managers micro manage constantly and pass on negative comments that get repeated to everyone. There is ZERO confidentiality. Unpaid training & meetings. Training when new is new non existent, and co-workers refuse to help as they feel they are in competition with you. Favoritism is rampant. High school like work atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better structured training that will help in your area of expertise. Treat all employees as valuable. Have a dedicated customer service department.
