I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very big on building relationships, Great vacation,401k,insurance,discount.

Cons

No real set schedule. You know your schedule 1-2 weeks out,,
You can request off, as long as there is not a sale or event, which there are many,
Hard To move up in the company.

Advice to Management

Give associates a schedule 1 month out, to live a life & have a better ability to have clients return to see them.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    generous benefits, adequate paid vacation, admirable community partnerships and philanthropic outreach, associates create bonds like friends- not just coworkers- and foster their own sense of teamwork, on-trend merchandise & great discount

    Cons

    creativity and abstract thought are crushed. productivity based solely on numbers (sales, credit accounts opened) and SMs pit associates against each other in competition. SMs don't know their people and spend too little time on the sales floor. despite what they promise, internal promotions are nearly nonexistent (even when exceeding performance expectations). no scheduling stability unless you're a student, no weekends off during holiday quarter. the single function HR successfully fulfills is monitoring dress code. only liars & suck ups thrive. okay for a summer job, but not the company for anyone looking to build a long term career.

    Advice to Management

    get to know the ambitions, qualifications, work ethic, and degree of education of the sales drones whose talents are being wasted in your store
