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

    Pros

    Phenomenal employee discounts, and a very fun-loving company culture. Generous PTO policy.

    Cons

    Consistently poor business results inevitably lead to staff cuts and job dissolution from year to year in both the stores themselves and the corporate offices. Resources are stretched too thin in all business units. Pay isn't that great when you work in the corporate offices (unless you're a VP or something) because extra financial resources are diverted to the stores since they are ultimately the bread winners for the company.

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

    Pros

    Sales can be really good during high peak seasons which means great commission. No constant manager regulation. There’s a point system for calling out and lateness which helps you stay in good standing.

    Cons

    Commission. The associates are very sharky. Minimal growth. Always promoting outside the company.

    Advice to Management

    Help your associates grow within the company.

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

    Pros

    I really try to keep an open mind and consider all the aspects of a job, but the only pro I can think of is that you get a direct deposit paycheck on Fridays.

    Cons

    Effective this coming February 2018, “sick days” are no longer available. You must use accrued vacation time if you are sick.

    If you don’t push the loyalty program and open credit cards, forget about surviving here.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like human beings! Put yourself in our shoes.

    Don’t forget, you’ll never survive as a company with your sales and support associates.
