    Great. They were extremely nice and asked me about my background. It was an easy, smooth process. They offered me the job on the spot and had me sign papers immediately. Great company to work for. They give you plenty of hours, have other great employees, and in a great location.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

    Interview

    Lengthy process involving phone interviews with recruiters, then an in person interview with several store level executives including HR and the direct supervisor. From there an interview with a VP and then potentially an interview with Director of Stores or another board position. Talent assessments and leadership screening are also part of the hiring process.

    Interview

    I applied several times for this program over the course of about two years, and never heard back until the latest time when I applied and heard from a recruiter the very next day. I then completed an online analysis skills-testing quiz and had a phone interview. I sent a thank you and never heard from the recruiter again.

    Interview

    Pretty easy interview overall. The company usually mass hires and sometimes even hires people without any experience. Good place to start in retail if you are looking to learn about the retail world or find another job.

    Beauty Advisor Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's in February 2020.

    Interview

    I showed up for a hiring fair, was under the impression it would be a group interview but it was not. The questions were extremely specific and detailed situational questions, rather than "what are your strengths/weaknesses" or "why do you think you'd be a good fit" which is more what I was prepared to answer. I did my very best to answer but found it a little difficult. The interviewer came off like she loved my answers but I never got a call back from anyone.
