Sales/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Palm Beach Gardens, FL – April 9, 2017
I am part-time so I don't have as many responsibilities. The store is all about making sales and getting credit card applications. The managers always favor the top sellers, so if someone that sells a lot does something wrong or starts a problem with you nothing will happen to them. You have to keep up with numbers or you won't be there anymore
Manager in Training (Current Employee) – King of Prussia, PA – April 7, 2017
If you are passionate about retail, "clientling" and trends then Bloomie's is the place for you. Every day brings something different. If you do not have the passion for retail then this is not the job for you.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 6, 2017
One of the better Retail jobs I've worked for. Very relaxed environment. Great atmosphere. Huge expectations from the sales associates as far as making goals, especially with the price points being so high in most departments.
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – April 3, 2017
If you have ever worked in a department store setting then you know how it will be to work for this company. There are more chances to move up in the company because there are more positions available. But you have to love retail and love what you do to succeed.

They have a fun environment and a Great Pay. The sad part is that I only got a seasonal position with the company. If it were not for the fact the position was seasonal I will still be working there. I met 50 cent and almost every week someone famous was coming for an in store event. I worked for the Bloomingdale's that is located in Soho, New York,New York. I enjoyed everyday of work but it is very competitive going back to work there.
Flexible Scheduling, meeting famous people, and great Pay
Sales Professional (Former Employee) – Garden City, NY – March 28, 2017
Very fun place to work for;nice environment. Great for an extra job or part time job. Staff is normally very diverse. They treat their employees decently, compared to some of the bigger companies out there, even though they are a well-sized operation.
Sales Professional (Current Employee) – White Plains, NY – March 21, 2017
Its a good place to work. Retail can be slow at times so it gets tiring to just stand behind the register. You have to be prepared to deal with all types of customers as some can be very trying and rude. Certain coworkers are also very rude, and love to gossip which is a con, but to be expected in most workplaces. Most management is very nice and caring.
Great work/life balance, but hardly any opportunity to advance salary.
Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 14, 2017
Not the best environment for advancement. It is a good place to stay for a few years to learn, and then get out. The corporate "lifers" really care about the brand, and the brand could be more if money was put into it to do proper marketing.
Summer Fridays, understanding managers that trust you, fast paced environment, great coworkers
difficult to get things done, small teams, not competitive compensation, promotional raises small, dysfunctional departments (ex: creative has control over design of assets, and the briefer has no input into the design)
Lead Asset Protection Detective (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 13, 2017
A typical day at Bloomingdale's was very tidy. Managers aren't that nice to their employees. What I've learned from working for Bloomingdale's is how not to interact with the customers. Customers are the heart of retail and I believe that every customer should be treated with respect and provided great services.
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Aventura, FL – March 12, 2017
The customers will teach you a lot about yourself sometimes and you will learn how to handle any issue because of the diversity. However, management can be a pain and self-centered. The hardest part of the job is trying to some days make sales plan when there is no traffic and then it can be a very awarding place. I advise people with a very bubbly, outgoing personality not to get stuck there forever. This is only a stepping stone job it will suck you dry and then disappoint you.
