I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (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.

    Pros

    Associate training - only if you have no similar college etc training and need a BASIC sales training program
    Associate discount - but you cannot afford the merchandise at your salary even after the discount

    Cons

    I worked at the South Coast Plaza location for a year.
    Everything the others mention about incompetent management, no chance of moving up, dangerous backrooms, weekend hours etc. Employees are not respected in any way, taken as slaves,work that you do and not required is forgotten, if you miss anything, you can never get that off your record. The managers never stand up for anyone, so afraid of losing their own jobs. Unless it is for a few months until you find something better _ although you might not have the time - don't go to work for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone in management and start from scratch.

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

    Pros

    Discount, got double discount 20% + 20% on special days. (other retailers give better discounts, so really not that great of a discount considering what you have to put up with.)

    Cons

    Lots of drama, If you like drama work in the Boca store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace dinosaurs in upper management. Store and Regional managers are politicians. Hire leaders and get rid of bureaucrats.
