Nothing more than a name
Assistant Buyer (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 5, 2014
Pros: amazing discount, exposure to showrooms and designers.
Cons: no work life balance, poor training.
As an assistant buyer, you will have zero work life balance. This means working 14 hour days as well as weekends. Did I mention this means coming into the office on a Sunday because they don't provide you with a laptop? The pay is the lowest of all of the luxury retail buying corporations. With zero training classes or programs, expectations are not reasonable. Someone was crying at least once a week.

Productive workplace
5 F Denim Specialist (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 31, 2013
A typical day would be, filling in necessary styles of product needed on the floor in my department. Checking customer holds, contacting clients if need be regarding promos, new merchandise, etc.
I have learned how to manage myself as well as establishing myself as my own business. The management is not entirely there as much as it should be. For the most part my fellow coworkers are a joy to work with. The hardest part would be trying to stay afloat with all the different labels being carried. Being around good people and fabulous clothes.

Housekeeper (Former Employee), new york, nyJuly 5, 2013
Pros: healthcare, raises, union
Cons: schedules, limited equipment, no room to move up in the company
a typical day at work included getting a task and completing it by a certain time period. I've learned how to complete task on time and also work by myself without being micromanaged. My co-workers were all elders so i learned a lot being in their presences. The hardest part of the job was scheduling. After a while they couldn't comply with the schedule i needed. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in one of the wealthiest department stores in ny.

Bergdorf Goodman Shipping Mgr. Job Description
Shipping Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYApril 29, 2013
Pros: fast paced environment
Cons: space issues and the location of the shipping department
I started at approximately 9 a.m and a typical day ended at approximately 7 p.m. or later. I learned all of the requirements to successfully run a shipping department. My department which was on the 9th floor shipped approximatly 250,000 to 300, 000 packages per year across the country and the world.The hardest part of the job was finding enough space to accomplish this daunting task. I managed approximately 17 shipping associates. I was responsible for their schedules and timekeeping as well as assigning tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job was the quick pace since I enjoy multitasking.

One of the worst places to work
Sales Assistant (Former Employee), New York, nyApril 5, 2013
Pros: the clinics are a real perk at bergdorf goodman
Cons: i was told when i could go to lunch, couldn't just say, i am going to take my lunch. some days i would go without lunch.
This was one of the worst places I have worked at. I was treated worst than dirt. I was screemed at, belittles, made to feel incompetent. I would often see other sales associated and personal shoppers going off on their assistants. I couldn't do my job successfully because my boss constantly scrutinized anying I did. She believed nobody knew how to do their job. I have later learned Bergdorf Goodman has some sort of reputation about this. Obviously management and human resources don't take any action against the sales associated or personal shoppers because they produce. They just look the other way, and blame the assistants that they can't do their job. I would never recommend no one to work for this company.
