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

    Pros

    Great co-workers. The discount is good. You do have the potential to make decent money if you are an extremely strong seller. It's incredibly competitive.

    Cons

    Micro-managed. If the store is slow and commission based, you don't make money. If you aren't selling a lot, you go into defect and your paychecks will be bare minimum. This is only a good job if you are a STRONG seller even when the store is slow. Hard to move up or into corporate. Not many willing to help.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good internal sales for employees. Just pretend your salary is enough to pay for those things. And hope you love wearing black. All day. Every day.

    Cons

    EXTREMELY political; very poor management, esp. the dumb young girls in middle mgmt; customers increasingly lower-class and STEAL; and of course, the typical lousy retail hours and pay.

    Advice to Management

    WAKE UP! Antiquated management; the talented people leave as soon as they figure out the place is a waste of time for them; the Willow Grove store has the highest turnover rate of employees, NO ONE is happy there; idiotic pep rallies that are oblivious to their true customer base and the state of the economy.
