Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Customers are usually educated and well behaved they just want to have a good shopping experience and are willing to pay for it.

Cons

The selling pressure are stressful and to tip toe around the customer not to insult them is high pressure.

Advice to Management

Take it a little bit easy. We can not force the customer to buy anything and if we do we get the return.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting, dynamic work environment.
    Decent moneymaking potential.
    Great employee discounts on merchandise.

    Cons

    Very corporate, often incompetent work environment. It doesn't take a genius to get into retail, even if it's "higher end" in Bloomingdales case. I found management fairly cold, dry, and disengaging.

    Advice to Management

    Reward salespeople with jobs based on merit, skill, and potential and focus less on age/seniority.

    Competitive Pay and Benefits
    Fun working environment
    Good learning experience

    Unfortunately with retail work, you do have the longer hours, especially during the holidays. However, that is to be expected with retail.
