Great Store to start a career in retail

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Bloomingdale's full-time for more than 10 years

ProsVery big on building relationships, Great vacation,401k,insurance,discount.

ConsNo real set schedule. You know your schedule 1-2 weeks out,,
You can request off, as long as there is not a sale or event, which there are many,
Hard To move up in the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive associates a schedule 1 month out, to live a life & have a better ability to have clients return to see them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
