Racist & Favoritism
Women’s Shoe Specialist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 18, 2019
Wouldn’t recommend the job to a soul. If you seeking something temp or part time gig for play money sure. The managers are unfair and majority of them racist. Had the worst experience there i quit within a 5 week time frame of being there. A lot of favoritism that takes place rules apply to certain employees. Stay away I wouldn’t recommend anybody working here

Enjoyable work but too much negative environment
Sales Professional (Former Employee) –  Orange County, CAMarch 16, 2019
Enjoyed my time working there for years until I realized there was no potential for growth and if you're a hard worker you end up doing everything yourself. They often if not a good chunk of the time hired from the outside in instead of promoting employees from within. typical retail work environment with lazy and negative employee relationships which management knows and listens to but does not do anything about.
Pros
Liked the actual merchandising work
Cons
other employees and management. plus heavy work load for the pay

Horrible
Sales Professional (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 6, 2019
Horrible location because I've heard better things about other locations. Management and store drives on drama. Unrealistic goals for the traffic that the store receives.

Commissioned Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Sacramento, CAMarch 4, 2019
I have worked here for 2 years and it's been alot of fun. co workers are friendly and like family at times. The company works hard to uphold the company mission and has fun doing it. Unfortunately not many managerial positions or room to advance; small raises.

Age discrimination at Short Hills Bloomingdales
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Short Hills, NJMarch 3, 2019
I work here and do not recommend it because of the age discrimination. If you are over 40 they will never promote you. They only push ahead young employees. Experience isn't valued. Work ethic doesn't either. You will be stuck in a dead end job forever. They even fired and demoted the excellent middle aged managers who were respected. They have been replaced with young ones who are uninspiring and self serving and do not even answer their phones to help you. I work here 5 years that were wasted.
Pros
Benefits discount customers fast pace
Cons
Age discrimination Bias towards youth

Terrible Work Environment
Sales Associate (Part Time) (Current Employee) –  Stanford, CAMarch 2, 2019
Work here if you'd like to be treated like garbage, work long hours, and get paid close to nothing. All managers have a power trip, not worth being talked to like a middleschooler.
Pros
Great Discounts
Cons

Like it so far
Sales Associate tabletop and housewares (Current Employee) –  Costa Mesa, CAFebruary 22, 2019
The store and products are high end. Customers are overall nice but very demanding. The hardest part of job is customers being mean to you. Even if an issue with the reward cards have nothing to do with you and are completely out of your control, they look down their noses at you and are just rude. The ones that have no proof of purchase or bring old used coffee machines and items back will bully you. My manager has been very supportive since I started and flexible with my schedule requests. She makes sure we know about what is going on in the store and all the events, what my goals are and what items are included in the deals. I like that she checks in on me every day to see how things are going and if I need help with anything. There are some difficult personalities to deal with, but that is part of teamwork. Merchandising in the mornings before we open can get sweaty.
Pros
manager is very supportive
Cons
people who have been there a long time are gossipy

Blomingdales outlet is a great place to work. Great environment, I had an awesome team of co-workers while I was there as well. Hours are awesome, it's very easy to be able to pick up shifts as you please, and as they are available.

complete lack of diversity in management
sales associate (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJFebruary 16, 2019
There is definitely a lack of career advancement at Bloomingdales Bridge water, New Jersey, if you are colored , None of the executive leadership roles/ business managers are colored. A few sales associates with college degrees who have demonstrated excellent customer service and sales goals never got the chance. Nor was even approached about the executive development program ( program to transition into a business manager). instead other white candidates from outside were newly hired when they have many qualified and eligible candidates already employed. This review is for Bloomingdales bridge water.

Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 13, 2019
not a very friendly nor caring company towards its employees. No room for growth unless you have a friendship with certain executives. Very much operated like a high school.

Very racist and sexist.
Classism is very much part of the everyday of this company
