I worked at Bloomingdale's part-time (less than an 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.

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Discount, great place to learn, some wonderful employees.

    Cons

    Management does not value employees. They will ask you to change shifts or work weekends on a whim, and send you home early to save $$. They do NOT make the customer the main priority because they refuse to pay and hire employees to service the clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like we are tying to cure cancer here! We are in retail and the political backstabbing that takes place is appauling.

    Current Employee - Commissioned Sales Associate in Chestnut Hill, MA

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (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.
