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

Pros

Good pay. Paying 13.00 an hour as a sales associate. And the associates are fun to be around. They were like family. You grow to know and love the regular customers that come in.

Cons

I was written up twice and had meetings with managers because they were unsatissfied with my clientele of 100 customers. They put ALOT of pressure on you so that managers can get their bonuses while your stuck with the leg work. Do not keep promise to promote from within

Advice to Management

You already know what your doing wrong but refuse to change............

    Advice to Management

    Consider the well being of the associates,there are too many cheifs not enough indians.
    Stop allowing ruthless customers to buy , wear and return .... it takes away from the hardworking associates. If an associate call lp than that must mean that it is an emergency.

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

    Pros

    Have great training process to ensure that all new associates are sent out to the selling floor full of product knowledge. The pay plan/commission structure/benefits are above average for retail and they do offer employees extra discount during the year for black apparel (you have to wear all black everyday). If you are selling consistently and reaching your goals, you can be promoted fairly quickly.

    Cons

    Upper level management has a great rep ore, and motivate each other when needed; but that doesn't make it's way down to the selling floor (or out the doors to attract clients for that matter). When the sales associates stand around and gossip all day because the selling floor is so dead, it makes 8 hours seem like 80!

    Advice to Management

    Need to address issues with selling floor managers and re-evaluate mid-level management teams.
