    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (Chicago, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was invited to interview online, which took a long time to finally get an interview date. I interviewed the first week of December. The department manager I was supposed to interview with took off that day so I had to come in twice to interview with someone else. I was supposed to know what seasonal work I would be doing the next day. They stopped all contact after that. Extremely unprofessional. I could tell they were lying based on the person I interviewed with, because apparently there were "no positions" when I was told there were several the first time.
