    I have been working at Bloomingdale's

    Pros

    Absolutely the worst. I had a gift card and tried to spend it online. The order went through but later they sent me an email saying additional information required. I called, waited for 30 minutes and finally someone picked up. He assured me after getting my credit card information, the order will go through. That was NOT the case. The second order was denied again pending "fraud investigation". I called again and spoke to several supervisors, and they still cannot tell me why the system flagged my order. It was a simple gift card paid with CASH. There was no credit card involved so how can there be any fraud? The truth of the matter is, they stole my money and now I am out a $200 gift card and my order.

    Cons

    but on the other side if we talk about fsession.com they pretty good in that case

    I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are passionate about their careers and it is encouraged to move between areas to gain experience. Training is prevalent for system upgrades for the entire company to keep everyone on the same page.

    Cons

    Upward mobility is lacking. There are a limited number of positions once you get to a higher level and the positions do not open up often.

    I worked at Bloomingdale's full-time

    Pros

    When you're first hired, they provide all the necessary training you need to get started. The manager works with you to ensure your success and helps you build your clientele.

    Cons

    Not enough opportunities for career advancement. They don't look at the current employees for advancement; always hiring from the outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More attention should be given to current employees when looking to fill leadership positions. There are many current employees that are more than capable to fill these positions.
