    I worked at Bloomingdale's part-time

    Pros

    - discount
    - decent work hours

    Cons

    - Too linient on customer returns demonstrating a desperate need for retention
    - very poor security
    - YES manager played favorites. She clearly had employees she favored over others and would allow them to get away with things such as not coming in to work, working under their hours, not helping other associates clean up the store (because as long as they got sales they were saints in her eyes)
    - YES manager gossiped and did not help her employees with labor. Perfect example is during the holiday season. Rather than help us clean up she would say and I quote “wow this is a disaster, clean up chickadees” and would proceed to stroll off into her office.
    - overall management was not up to par and many associates felt as though they carried more weight than others and when managers/HR was confronted with these concerns nothing was done to initiate some sort of change.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were fun and made the work entertaining.

    Cons

    Management was disjointed and difficult to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Give consistent answers to customers, because it makes your employees jobs harder when you give discounts to some customers and not others.


  9. "Intern at Bloomingdales"

    Pros

    Great exposure to executives and management. Great training program. Really good work life balance (9-6). Good pay and discount benefits.

    Cons

    Day to day role and experience depends on the supervisor you get assigned to. Some interns had better experiences than others. But that is seen pretty much anywhere.
