Fast-paced luxury retail enviornment
Contemporary Private Label Selling Specialist (Current Employee), Chestnut Hill, MANovember 24, 2014
Pros: beautiful wardrobe.
Cons: location and hours of the store.
Strong focus is placed on building and maintaining client relationships. I learned quickly how to maintain these relationships and over time developed a client book of over 100 contacts which is still growing. Management is concerned with employees reaching their personal sales goals as well as keeping loyal clients happy. Many co-workers work for leased – more... vendors within Bloomingdale's and this creates a separation between leased partners and Bloomingdale's associates. The best part of this job would be the opportunities for meeting different people and creating new professional relationships. The fast-paced environment and attention to detail is something I enjoy. – less

Public Relations Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Palm Beach Gardens, FLNovember 23, 2014
Working for Bloomingdale's has been a wonderful experience and I'm proud to be a part of such a wonderful organization with a great history. I was constantly urged to move up in the company, and when the right position for me became available, I was supported in my promotion every step of the way.

fast paced place to be. A business with a party scene.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), New York, NYNovember 16, 2014
Patience is the most important aspect of this type of job. When dealing with hundreds of different personalities, it is important to remember that all customers are dealing with something outside of your service. Some will take it out on you, some will not. I've learned that it's never personal, and always keep a level head, no matter what. That can – more... be the hardest part of the job if you're not patient, and the easiest, if you are. – less

There was always an ongoing task to complete everyday at work.
Women's Shoes - Operations Manager (Former Employee), Chevy Chase, MDNovember 11, 2014
Pros: networking with many other business professional and social societies.
My normal day would be coming in to check the conditions of the sales floor, and then straighten. The next would be to be to audit the stock sales room and refresh the area.Then I would write out the current schedule and task every sales person and give them all individual goals. I would usually be processing new shipment and getting product out onto – more... the sales floor. Throughout that day I would also follow up on every sale professional to make sure task were being completed and goals were being met through coaching delegating and developing them. Some days were a bit more intense than others when it came to the many personalities that I came in contact with. But we surely had a sense of family within my specific department. The hardest part was getting some tasks complete due to lack of support from upper management. I enjoyed the constant interactions with the various clients and community. – less

Fast paced competitive clientele
Sales Specialist (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAOctober 27, 2014
Pros: commission, benefits, discounts, product knowledge(kept me hip)
Cons: catty co-workers, management goals sometimes extreme
Day consists of checking client book, calling any clients that may need to replenish on product. I learned a lot about getting the most of the busy times and try my best to close the sales on slow days. Management was helpful at times, to help you see where you stand as far as the numbers you make for the day/week/month. Co-workers can get very territorial, – more... but the commission rate was very cut-throat. The hardest part was probably meeting the monthly requirements of accounts opened. Sometimes on peak months, the goal was pretty outrageous. Most enjoyable part was the product and working with my very personable clients . – less

Sales Professional/ Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Costa Mesa, CAOctober 13, 2014
Pros: great experience with customers.
Cons: base versus commission.
Had to make sales to reoccurring and new customers. Good thing about it, the commission was great, yet on the other had if there were returns that would take away from you commission which would then take away from you paycheck. But in all the environment was great, and I met a lot of great people.

Selling Manager role requires much flexibility.
Men's Selling Manager (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAOctober 12, 2014
The company culture at Bloomingdales is not one of openness and of people development. There are distinct roles that each person has to follow and many people are involved in leadership decision making at a senior level. However, the Selling Managers are not included in many decisions which have an impact for them to be effective in their respective – more... roles. – less

Cons: life/work balance is not always the best
Overall a great place to start in retail to gain an identity in retail. Offers multiple opportunities to learn what you like and do not like. Daily interactions with customer and clients constantly gives you new ways to find solutions to issues. The environment cultivates clientele and you learn the benefits of the customer/ associate relationships.

Pros: fun environment
Cons: can be seriously slow at times
I am the Sportswear and Suiting Specialist for HUGO BOSS at Bloomingdales in San Diego. Typical day is pulling reports to see where my numbers are +/- to my goal. I'd also restock and re-merchandise the area as well. I am not a manager but more like a sales associate with an area of resposibility. I report back to the sales Manager any issues, great – more... feed back or call outs/ concerns my clients may have. Interactive with my clients via text or email about the latest and greatest trends meanwhile exhibiting my professional behavior like no other store in the world!!!! I have recently been given the resposibility as a mentor...So new hires on the floor are partenered with me for training!!!! – less
