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

Pros

They offered generous pay & commissions

Cons

The dreaded 1:30-9:30 shift. The whole employee training etc..was very dated

Advice to Management

The HR dept. test question booklet was way too long for a retail job. I had to take 2 test that lasted an hour each. With banal questions like..."would you steal, report theft...etc." Who in gods name would answer yes to them. I felt like it was a waste of time instead of one on one interviews..but there was also plenty of these. All this for a retail job. I am now the Director of Administration at my current job & will always remember these interviews & the Bloomingdale process of how not to hire people.
