Why Bloomingdale’s?

Why work at Bloomingdale’s? What makes us the best employer in retail?

Is it the discount? The flexible schedule? The great benefits, pay and perks? The fact that we’re often the place for celebrity appearances and designer launches? 

It’s all of those things, yes. But it’s also something more - an energy you feel when you walk in the door. A connection and a sense that exciting things are happening, whether it’s in our stores or corporate offices.

From part-time sales associates to corporate executives, people tell us that working here is different. That they’ve made friends and built relationships that make coming to work even more rewarding. That they feel part of a team. That what we have at Bloomingdale’s is special.

We’re looking for leaders that will help shape our future. If you’re ready to find your passion, end your search here.
