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 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.

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

    Pros

    Employee discounts of at least 20% all the time, usually more on bigger promo days.

    Cons

    Horrible management doesn't care about their employees, only about themselves. Micromanaged to the point that multiple coworkers are all doing the same project just to double check each others work. No trust at all within department so everyone is in it just for themselves. No collaborative effort to fix the problems. HR is horrendous. Multiple complaints about management from multiple employees get brushed under the carpet and ignored. Employees worthy of promotion are pushed aside for those that suck up to the higher ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look around and start realizing that the horrible attrition rate within the company is all due to poor management. Always looking for different excuses when you should be looking in the mirror.

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's

    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 ManagementAdvice

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