    I have been working at Bloomingdale's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the main perks to working in Bloomingdales is the employee's discount! It can range from 20% to up to 60% off on top of either sale or full price items. Bloomingdales is a very friendly environment to also work in. Everybody does their job and knows how to do their job. I would say Bloomingdales is a more professional retail work environment compared to other retail departments such as American Eagle, Urban Outfitters, or Topshop.

    Cons

    One of the biggest Cons to working in Bloomingdales is that it is such a big commission based environment. You essentially make your money by what you sell and it is a draw verses commission based pay. Returns of also any merchandise you sell also affects your commission so keep that in mind. There is also deficit which means if you don't make enough money given the amount of hours you work then you do owe the company money which is deducted from your paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Do not micromanage employees because we are all here to do our job and to work. It is up to the individual to make their own money and sales. Micromanaging employees on the sales floor will just push employees further from wanting to complete tasks and reach sales goals.
