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

    Pros

    Amazing employee discount. & designer/season sales.
    Vacation hours (for part timer's too!)
    Paid 20 minutes breaks.
    Restaurants inside the building.

    Cons

    Long hours on feet. Your feet KILL you by the end of a shift.
    Executives treat associates like second class.
    Holiday hours SUCK.
    Bratty/SPOILED customers.
    No room for growth. (If you are interested.)
    Some managers just don't know what their doing.
    Very strict attendance code.
    Return policy depends on the manager.
    Credit! Credit! Credit! That defines your performance for reviews. Nothing else really matters.
    Need to request days off 35 days in advance. If not, automatically, not approved.
    A majority of the store is draw vs. commission.
    Scheduling problems. Not enough staff but have yet to fill much needed spots.
    It is the best retail job I've had (compared to my many others), but I feel bad for anyone who depends on Bloomingdales for a living. Good temporary/college part time job. Can't wait to move on though.

    Advice to Management

    Make up your minds about the return policy! Stop making us look like the bad guy. The managers need to become more available. Stop making people work ALL DAY on Sundays. Stop making us stay until 2am for inventory, close the store early for one day like you used to! Listen to your associates. The executives need to be friendly and open with the associates. We are humans. Fix your shipping department. Multiple customers have received wrong/broken/warned/damaged items.
