    I worked at Bloomingdale's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Bloomingdale's was a fun place to work. Though very boring due to the low foot traffic, the employees made it enjoyable. The managers could use a bit of training when it comes down to how they treat employees, but overall it was a positive experience.

    Cons

    Not too many cons. Like some retails stores, when the holidays are over, it can be hard to sell, so it's almost like you're only getting base pay and not commission due to the high amount of returns. It was bad. Their return policy is too lenient and that's probably one of the reasons they are loosing money. Some people in management were extremely annoying and felt as though they were too high up to help the associates. All they would do is walk around and make commands and would not even bother to help the associates unless picks were involved.

    Pros

    Supplies benefits, 401K plan, Coworkers are great!, you learn a lot about politics.

    Cons

    Some managers are on vacation constantly or rarely on the floor. Management is honestly awful. They ask you to work harder with less pay. They do not treat you like human beings. Stay away from full time.

    The stress is not worth $10/hr with only 3% commission

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking advantage of people and learn how to motivate people. Trying to put all the workers against each other in a competition does not work. Treat people with respect and take ownership and responsibility.
