    Bloomies Job Review

    Oct 1, 2022 - Sales Associate/Merchant/Stock Associate in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Working with Bloomingdales is a great way to learn about fashion, brands, and the clothing/accessories etiquette. Being an associate you get to see first hand what is being sold the most and what is trending. On certain occasions, (especially weekdays) scheduling is really helpful. Working weekends and holidays is mandatory though.

    Cons

    -Upper management and staff always clashed. They never cared to address any concerns. -There is no room to grow your career with this company. Transferring to other locations is nearly impossible. Staff makes it hard. -The pay is terrible and the workload is tiring. - Credit for high sales, or accomplishing a big project will never be given to you.

    Pros

    A great place to learn about retail management. Great product and people to work with. Happy that I experienced it when I did. I would recommend it as a first job or a stepping stone to a better job.

    Cons

    The company is riddled with mismanagement, nepotism and controversial issues the higher up that it goes. Since this happens their is a huge lack of accountability and loss of sales dollars. Pay was not fair from manager to manager nor was accountability.

    Identify and Open Your Own Doors

    Sep 9, 2022 - Designer Specialist in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Veteran team members are a wealth of knowledge and support: if you give respect you get respect, and potential opportunities for professional growth. Taking initiative and exercising entrepreneurial muscles is not discouraged.

    Cons

    Draw vs commission isn’t feasible in some departments given the generous return policy; however, I believe they discontinued the practice during the pandemic. The managers are mismanaged and are often moved around between departments which creates an unstable and often professionally stunted work environment: the team that is supposed to direct, foster, and acknowledge your work is itself compromised. I was very deliberate when I said “potential” opportunities for professional growth. If you are on the floor but you are not management, professional growth will not be presented to you, and doing your job well is unlikely to help. You have to identify and open your own doors.
