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

Pros

Great working environment and employee discounts

Cons

Bloomingdales does not advertise and we are forced to call or email customers in our client books to create business. Most clients do not want to be called or emailed all the time especially during snow storms. Also new scheduling system MSP is not the greatest. As a manager I wish I had the opportunity to make the schedule for my team, there would be less headaches. Also returns are a nightmare. I have never worked in an store that had such a high return rate. We take back everything even if it came from another retailer.

Advice to Management

I wish store management would hire professionals. Its embarrassing how much internal shoplifting goes on in the store.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bloomingdale's was very accommodating, from rehiring after layoffs to working around my school schedule. You really feel part of the Bloomingdale's "family."

    Cons

    It's a very large company with thousands of employees and a very high turnover rate.

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

    Pros

    Great discount, upbeat atmosphere, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Commission-versus-draw set up for some departments, meaning if you don't make your "draw" you'll still receive your base, but you go into the hole and end up "owing the company".

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Commission-versus-draw.
