I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time for more than a year

Pros

1. Employee discounts
3. Staying current with fashion

Cons

1. Will find reasons to fire you if they don't like you.
2. Dangle a promotion in front of you and make you chase unrealistic sales & account goals and doesn't give you the promotion/raise unless you threaten to quit.
3. Constantly understaffed so you work larger areas without proper breaks because no one to cover the floor
4. Managers will never back you up when you get in trouble

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay a higher wage for quality people instead of recruiting from Macy's stores and recognize talented associates instead of keeping the average worker bees.
