Licensed Agent (Current Employee) – Bloomington, IN – September 12, 2015
Working with people from all walks of life can be interesting a learning experience. I have learned to better understand the way people act and how to respond to all type of responses. The management has been quite accommodating to my needs the best they can be. The hardest part of the job would be when people call and yell at you when their problem is not the cause of something you yourself have done. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you are able to help someone and leave them feeling good and satisfied with the help you have given to them.
Productive atmosphere. Had a chance to meet many different people.
Bagger-Cashier (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – September 9, 2015
Usually i would begin my day by finishing a fellow co workers day. Unless i was there in the morning. We would make sure our register area was neat and orderly. The reciept roll was full and ready to begin scanning items. It took some time but soon i was remembering the numbers of the produce without looking for it on the item. You gain the ability to multi task and work quickly but orderly when the lines are long but you need to me quality services to each customer. The co-workers were all very nice and all helped each other when we needed it.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Visalia, CA – April 9, 2015
I had a great staff a typical day at work would be processing shipment and changing mannequins and rotating old clothes with new closes. helping customers find what they where looking for. The hardest part about the job i would have to say would have been dealing with customers about are return policy but it part of any retail job and its something i have learned to handle wit may years in retail. Best part of the job meeting great people we had lots of regular customers that we really got to know.
Cashier/Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Odenton, MD – January 25, 2015
I only worked at Bloom for a year. Working at Bloom was a difficult job. You had very long hours on your feet with short breaks. The management was inconsistent and they did not care about their employees. They had us on our hands and knees cleaning base boards and cash register lanes more than we did anything.
While we were able to connect with regular customers it was difficult to bring yourself to work because the management slacked off and expected you to pick up their slack.
The turn around time in employees was horrible, in the year that I worked more people were hired and quit than were there when I started. We were always understaffed and management didn't do anything to help.
Lastly, management showed a lot of favoritism. If you did what the manager did you got more breaks and longer breaks than someone who did not participate in the same activities.
poor management, no respect, understaffed, poor turn around time

you get no raises with this company. the manager thinks he knows what he is doing. the co-workers stab each other in the back and management condones such actions. the customers are the most enjoyable part of the job.
the pay is not to bad
no good medical coverage, no raises, management treat employees bad
Cashier (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – June 1, 2013
working there is fine, unless you want to advance in the company, don't expect to get recognized for you hard work, and enjoy eating from the dollar menu from McDonald's because that's all you'll be able to afford
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – San Bruno, CA – February 27, 2013
A typical day at work consists of maintaining a welcoming and clean environment. I have learned how to provide good customer service. The management did not care about their employees. We had no workers compensation. The hardest part of the job is dealing with difficult customers. The most enjoyable part is learning how to work as a team with my coworkers.
