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.

    The beginning was a great experience, lots of great info learned, great products.

    Cons

    Terrible management, over hire associates, unhygienic environment, no return policy effects associates and store. Hated the job in the end.

    Advice to Management

    show up more and maybe your associates will too. there are maybe 4 good managers in the store and they don't get recognized because of the stores ridiculous politics. shady company all and all. kiss ass is the only way to grow, not hard work!

    Pros

    The discount is great! The only good thing about this company is the discount, period.

    Cons

    The company tries to get the most out of you and then gets rid of you. You either work mornings, which allow you to be finished by 6:30PM or nights, which allow you to finish by 9:30PM. Basically, your whole day is occupied at Bloomingdales, not matter which shift you are working.
    They set impossible goals for associates to meet and if you do not meet these goals a certain number of times, they fire you. It is a very stressful environment considering it is only a retail job.

    Advice to Management

    Try to hire management that is educated, as most of the staff are clueless.
