    Used to be my favorite store - after working there, I will NEVER shop there again. EVER!

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

    Pros

    Good internal sales for employees. Just pretend your salary is enough to pay for those things. And hope you love wearing black. All day. Every day.

    Cons

    EXTREMELY political; very poor management, esp. the dumb young girls in middle mgmt; customers increasingly lower-class and STEAL; and of course, the typical lousy retail hours and pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    WAKE UP! Antiquated management; the talented people leave as soon as they figure out the place is a waste of time for them; the Willow Grove store has the highest turnover rate of employees, NO ONE is happy there; idiotic pep rallies that are oblivious to their true customer base and the state of the economy.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's

    Pros

    Very casual atmosphere, good reward system in plaec. Very much "you get what you put in"

    Cons

    Superiors could be condescending, not great at understanding work-life balance, often pressured into taking additional shifts to cover other's who had not been pulling their weight

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk more to subordinates like equals
