    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the manager I would be working with (in person). She was very friendly, enthusiastic about the interview, and seemed really interested in getting to know me.
    Then, I was interviewed by the HR manager that same day, also in person. She was also friendly and made me feel at ease during the entire interview.
    I was called by the first manager minutes later to let me know the job was mine.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (Costa Mesa, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Got an email to schedule an interview. Did not specify it was group so was a surprise arriving and it being a group of 8 applicants. All applying for slightly different positions. After group interview with HR manager,a specific manger came to interview applicants they believed would fit in their department. Didn't ask hard questions at all. I definitely over prepared.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's.

    Interview

    Applied online and within a few days i recieved an email to set up a time and date to schedule for a group interview. Group interview questions where not difficult to answer however everyone there (5-6 applicants) applied all for different positions. So no one seemed to interact well since everyone had different interests and goals.

    I was recruited from another manager. They asked me what my interests were and what I like to do in my spare time. It didn't feel like an interview. I basically tried to sell my skills to them.

    I was asked to come in for an interview to be a sales associate but I really wanted to be a merchandiser. The job was not posted online but they told me I could be in any of the open departments and easily transferred me to the right people.

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (Orlando, FL) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Most of the questions were very simple. Basically questions to find out how much experience I had for the job I was applying for. Some of the other questions were where do you see yourself in 5 or 10 years and what would your dream job be?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (Boca Raton, FL) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Usual interview as you are asked questions about your experience and how they apply to the current available job and what pay you are expecting. There was nothing out of the ordinary in this interview from what would be expected. Do a little bit of homework about retail and the company itself and anyone will do just fine.
