Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (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 Management

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.

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    nice place to work, great benefits, great discounts. able to make decisions on your own when a costumer may have unusual situation. the atmosphere is pleasant and you come across some nice people that makes your day go by.

    Cons

    pressure to open new charge accounts. long hours on weekends and event sales.

    Advice to Management

    too many sales, costumers are trained not to buy full priced merchandise

    Pros

    i don't speak for sales associates, cause i know that can get stressful, but any other job in bloomies is really very easy.

    Cons

    your best bet is working for a vendor, bloomies will hire you as an on call associate but give you almost full-time hours. so you aren't complaining cause you like the hours but they have the upper hand, because u aren't a part-time or full time associate.

    Advice to Management

    focus on the positive things workers do. not the negative.
