    I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Great co-workers. Decent base pay. Good opportunities to learn about merchandise. Great discount, one of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Sales can be very slow which is very aggravating when the same position at other stores can result in large commission checks.

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount
    Flexible....they let you move around laterally if you want to try new positions etc.
    Scheduling flexibility
    Recognition program

    Cons

    Medical benefits...high premiums and high deductibles
    Heavy workload
    Intense work environment due to huge pick up in e commerce and lack of interest in shopping brick and mortar.
    They aren't attracting the best sales associate candidates due to the uncertain business climate in brick and mortar department store retail.
    They struggle with employee engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting in store support staff positions. We are running bare bones. Start cutting highly compensated corporate positions instead. The CEO of Macy's inc is one of the highest compensated in retail while business has been in steady decline since 2009.
