Bloomingdale's Employee
in Short Hills, NJ

"There was a terrible Short Hills store manager who they say was finally fired. So what do they do, they hire one in her place who is worse. She is rude, aggressive, not helpful, demeaning, demotivating and a conceited elitist. No one can stand her and we talk about it all the time. Can't understand why a big company like this can't recognize poor managers."

"The company has many strengths and good people, but there is also a lot of room for improvement and the employees should definitely be compensated differently."

"The company has great benefits. It's a great stepping stone place for a first job. Good atmosphere, great management. All associates work commission, so they have to be on their toes while at work, but that's what motivates them to sell."

"I would say if you know you're unhappy and know this company truly does not see your talent, go to a better company that will."

Manager
in New York City, NY

"Simple minded Management... not the place for intelligent/creative types."

What do you like about working at Bloomingdale's?

"Salary, discount, location in New York City, sales floor atmosphere"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"It's easy... which is indicative of a less than ideal job environment. They are often heavily understaffed."

What don't you like about working at Bloomingdale's?

"Terrible technology, political, no clear managerial direction, disorganized and haphazard leadership, never kept in the loop about big decisions... ex. promotions, terminations. Unmotivated associates and management alike. Additionally, they offer very poor benefits."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Move away from a heavy promotional calendar, it's meaningless. Focus on making employees feel valued! It's not rocket science, it's retail... simplicity works. Bottom line, people shop for product, not people."
