Productive fun workplace
Brand Manager (Former Employee), Boca RatonJuly 28, 2015
Pros: Prizes for good work, Management, Discounts, Fashion Education, Social Experience
Cons: On feet all day, commissions, competitive co workers
Working at Bloomingdales was different than most retailers. There was much more responsibility which I thought was outstanding. The women's designer New View section was broken up by mini stores. I was the private label specialist so I was in charge of maintaining the area, merchandising, visual, etc. I would also connect with shoppers and try my best to market the product. I worked very closely with buyers in the headquarter locations where we would discuss how many items of a product I needed, what worked and what didn't. I found the hardest part of the job was working with seasoned professionals on a commission based level. The most enjoyable part was getting educated on fashion and really connecting with the merchandise and people in the store.

SALES PROFESSIONAL (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 27, 2015
A sales job is a great job if you have the time and energy to put into it. If you make work your life you will be heavily paid for that sacrifice. However if you go to work with a negative and lazy attitude it will show in your check

Customer Experience Manager (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 19, 2015
I learn the most from interacting with my co-managers, associates, and supervisors on the selling floor, not training in a classroom. . My hope is that as I coach and train associates, they realize how much of an impact they can have not only to the customers, but also to each other.

Sales Associate/Specialist, Designer Handbags (Current Employee), South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa, CAJuly 8, 2015
Being a Sales Associate at Bloomingdales is prosperous, if you're passionate about fashion. You have the ability to socalize with coworkers and customers in wide age range, which keeps the job fresh. The management varies between departments, so its best to stay social and find what manager best suits you. The hardest part of the job is maintaining high sales goals during the off season. And the most enjoyable part of the job for me was the process of sales overall. It's great connecting someone with an item they genuinely want.

Great atmosphere
Fragrance Specialist Cosmetic Sales (Current Employee), Santa Monica, CAJuly 7, 2015
I love the the team I work with. I partner with lots of eager associates and enjoy partaking in dynamic sales opportunities. Our clientele consists of almost 70% tourists and the remainder are locals. The most challenging part of the job is maintaining return clientele as a good majority are international clients. This poses a dichotomy because if it were not for the challenge of maintaing clientele, I would not have the opportunity to meet so many amazing people.

Not much fun for employees over fifty(50)
Department Coordinator (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 6, 2015
Pros: Summer Fridays and half days before holidays.
Cons: No room for growth.
Worked there for 34 years my first job out of school learned a lot because there are classes you can attend to help you with new technology, not much room for advancement except you are executive. Enjoyed every day going to work, the most enjoyable part of my job was creating all reports for my buyers.

Extremely Unprofessional Work Environment
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Newport Beach, CAJuly 1, 2015
Without a doubt the worst working atmosphere I've ever experienced. The management is worthless. Good luck finding one when you need too. It reeks with politics and favoritism. They like to bill themselves as an exclusive hi-end store but you basically can get the same merchandise at Macy's for much less being it there the owned by the same company. There is absolutely zero chance for advancement. They'll throw you a bone by putting you on one of their flavor of the month committees but there's no compensation for it. They like to sell you on the team concept but they meaning management treat you like a minion. You're relegated to becoming a telemarketer because they're consistently on your back to make client phone calls to the point where customers literally will tell you not to call them anymore. If your a glutton for punishment then by all means forward your application.

Stressful and Competitive
Sales Professional (Current Employee), Newport Beach, CAJuly 1, 2015
Not much foot traffic and very client-base driven. The combination of competitive coworkers and un-organized procedures lead to a very stressful environment. Management can be overwhelmingly demanding and almost nagging at times. I prefer working for Nordstrom.
