    I worked at Bergdorf Goodman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the best merchant team. Developing business for the new designers as well as the established. Opportunity to work with merchant team on the curated assortment. Working with tenured selling professionals and their loyal clients.

    Cons

    A large store with many silos. Colleagues are often spread thin. Drive for desired technology metrics impede expected personal service.

    Advice to Management

    More focused areas of responsibility for middle managers. A consistent approach to work life balance. Continue to partner merchants with selling management and selling associates.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bergdorf Goodman (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online, once you are contracted by HR if they are interested in meeting with you, you are asked to take an online retail math test and a personality test. If results are satisfactory, they call you in for an in-person interview with HR. Then you'll be called back to meet with the Buyer, and then a third time to meet with the Divisional Merchandise Manager (DMM). Upon receiving an offer, you must first pass a background and drug test.

    Interview Questions
