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

Pros

It is a nice enviroment to work at

Cons

Bad management, employees are not treated equalily, and not given the same chances. Management is based on fear, does not support openness, sharing new ideas, just want everyone to follow rules- even when they are obviously not working.

Advice to Management

Adjust management methods to the age of employees - what works for a part time 20 year old will not for an experienced full time 40+ employee. When the business is based on the relationship between clients and sales professionals, make sure to keep them so you don't lose business.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, great employee discount. Scheduling could be somewhat flexible. Managers set reasonable sales goals, never felt extremely pressured though.

    Cons

    Some of the managers could be passive aggressive. Sometimes was forced to work a double shift if too many people in my department called out of work last-minute. Recently, new system was put into place where managers were nearly impossible to get a hold of in order for associates to learn to solve customer problems all by ourselves.

    Advice to Management

    Don't set unreasonable goals! And Be more accessible.


  2. "Great place to work if your motivated, bad upper management!"
