I worked at Bloomingdale's part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great products and great sales associates

Cons

Incompetent and lazy HR and management. All except for the assistant store manager. But unfortunately her previous job must have been working with animals because she incapable of talking to other humans. You would really think it was a corporate job judging by how sneaky and deceptive the upper management was. It's only retail. I wish I had read reviews prior to working here.

Advice to Management

Get new management.

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

    Pros

    Associate training - only if you have no similar college etc training and need a BASIC sales training program
    Associate discount - but you cannot afford the merchandise at your salary even after the discount

    Cons

    I worked at the South Coast Plaza location for a year.
    Everything the others mention about incompetent management, no chance of moving up, dangerous backrooms, weekend hours etc. Employees are not respected in any way, taken as slaves,work that you do and not required is forgotten, if you miss anything, you can never get that off your record. The managers never stand up for anyone, so afraid of losing their own jobs. Unless it is for a few months until you find something better _ although you might not have the time - don't go to work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone in management and start from scratch.
