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

Pros

This company offers a good benefits package, flexible schedule and generous merchandise discounts.

Cons

Room for advancement opportunities are somewhat limiting. The creation of more managers-in-training programs would help promote and recognize in-store talent.

Advice to Management

While looking at associate's sales and how many loyalty accounts opened per month, take into account other talents that each individual possesses.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    •The Discount which ranges throughout the year from 20-50+%
    •The large workforce, easy to make friends
    •Easy to balance work and personal life

    Cons

    •Management is unresponsive to employee needs
    •Management has a vast superiority complex
    •Big Brother: Loss Prevention is more concerned about watching employees than customers
    •HR tends to look out for management's needs as opposed to employee needs
    •Very little room for growth within the company
    •Payment is generally lower than average hourly, or draw vs commission
    •The store is typically very slow, while the floors are overflowing with commission sales associates

    Advice to Management

    There is no need to micromanage employees, they are hired as "Sales Professionals." Constructive criticism is good, but not when it verges on being condescending.

    If the company wishes to thrive, it needs to account for employee needs, and must stop brushing them off.

    The company, under new executive management, has take a turn for the worse. Unless it changes its leadership style, revenue will continue to fall, the turnover rate will continue to rise, and the company will not succeed.
