I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Very big on building relationships, Great vacation,401k,insurance,discount.

Cons

No real set schedule. You know your schedule 1-2 weeks out,,
You can request off, as long as there is not a sale or event, which there are many,
Hard To move up in the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give associates a schedule 1 month out, to live a life & have a better ability to have clients return to see them.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's

    Pros

    The discount is great! The only good thing about this company is the discount, period.

    Cons

    The company tries to get the most out of you and then gets rid of you. You either work mornings, which allow you to be finished by 6:30PM or nights, which allow you to finish by 9:30PM. Basically, your whole day is occupied at Bloomingdales, not matter which shift you are working.
    They set impossible goals for associates to meet and if you do not meet these goals a certain number of times, they fire you. It is a very stressful environment considering it is only a retail job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to hire management that is educated, as most of the staff are clueless.
