Pros

The customers are nice and the merchandises displayed nicely.

Cons

They just must like you to grow in this store and you have to be in the favourites list and a good kisser to succeed no matter what!!!!

Advice to Management

Be fair and don't judge your employees by their look!

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

    Pros

    Lots of in store events, appearances, co-worker sales, and overall good feeling. Employee appreciation. Union.

    Cons

    A bad manager will destroy that good feeling above. My manager went wrong by playing favorites, being too lenient with reps who violate company policies and procedures but produce numbers. It is possible to advance there but MY manager was not good at this. The benefits suck and are expensive!

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on favoritism, and just because someone has been there 20yrs doesnt mean they get to make their own rules, that only they can follow.

    Pros

    Exciting to work in NYC and in the cosmetic industry

    Cons

    I realize there are good and bad employees (and good and bad managers) everywhere, however the Bloomingdales "guidelines" as far as attendance and performance expectations are extremely lax. If you want to be part of an organization that empowers and challenges its associates and managers and helps to grow and nuture their associates - this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and their concerns.....
