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

    Pros

    Friendly Coworkers who are willing to help with anything and you make great connections with clients. The environment in general is a great place to work at.

    Cons

    Making Commission is almost impossible if you work part time and management doesn’t tell you that when you’re hired. Doesn’t pay you enough for the work load you get.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management

    Pros

    Overall professional atmosphere
    Managers are friendly and can resolve issues you can't
    Overall though I've listed alot of cons, it's a typical retail experience and it's probably better than most stores
    Depending on the department you work in, you can make money (Denim is where it's at)

    Cons

    Traffic was low
    Clothes are overpriced
    Always had sales, which is great for customers but horrible for the Sale Associate because customers always expected a deal
    Returns hit you hard after a month in
    Commission versus

    Advice to Management

    Depending on your manager, some are hands on, which is annoying and others are more laid back
