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

    Pros

    Only speaking from my own experience, I work a 9 hour shift (one our for lunch) and the other 8 hours. If you are good at your job you are left alone for the most part. It is an ideal job for someone who wants to hustle and can coach and manage their team. The company is changing at the moment so that could change.

    Cons

    Monday morning quarterbacks. They will email you into the ground if you arn't doing something right. Sometimes this is a plus if you are new and looking for help. My job changed significantly, massive increase responsibility, and they are cheap when it comes to compensation "its an expectation". All things considered its not a bad gig they are top heavy so expect the politics to be there.

    Advice to Management

    Cheetahs aren't evil, but to the gazelle they are. Survival to the company looks like some evil corporate business not a good look.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid weekly, employee discount, worked at Chicago's "flagship" store, got to choose what days/shifts I wanted to work weekly

    Cons

    Extremely high sales goals, store is dead during the week, HR is rude, no interaction with department managers unless there was a problem

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees and help build up your team. Turn over is unbelievable and it's because management doesn't coach their team members.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good lighting in which to do makeup. Enough of a traffic flow to pull customers

    Cons

    Computer system could use a major update.I don't want to be responsible for every glitch in the system just like I don't expect IT dept to sell

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking back returns and damaged without receipts or after 90 days. Also, you hire a lower grade of personnel than you did 20 years ago.

    Pros

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