    Former Employee - Sales Associate in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    I loved the stability. Being involved with a company that is unionized has a lot of perks. Great environment and good people to work with. Lots of independence as a sales person. You can easily move between departments.

    Cons

    It's hard to move up within the company even though they talk about how much they value growth and opportunity within the company. Pressure to open credit cards is the biggest problem. If you are not comfortable with it you can run into problems with management. Sometimes the only accolades anyone would receive would be only if they had opened a certain amount of credit cards. Hard work and superb customer service is not valued as highly as it should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Depends on what department you are in.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Willow Grove, PA

    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.
