    Interview Details

    This is one of the best interview i ever had because of less knowledged interviewers. I had a chance to get on top of everything because of my vast knowledge and experience but it was not really the position i was looking for though.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Saks in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process was initially smooth with a couple of phone interviews, but then when were about to meet, an internal candidate was being considered. Great news for the internal candidate! Recruiter was nice and expressed her apologies. It seems as if there were some internal politics driving the decision.

    Finance Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Saks in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    First contacted by phone, and came in to meet the HR.
    Then came in a second time to meet the hiring manager, and VP of operations.

    HR was very friendly, asked basic questions.. why Saks, why retail, how do you feel about team work, etc.

    Interview with hiring manager was decent. She definitely knew my resume well (I've been to some interviews where the interviewer is reading your resume for the first time), asked pretty simple questions.
    The process was fairly open, and friendly. Met with the VP to speak briefly before she ran into a meeting.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Saks in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    Accepted job from the saks hr recruiter who made the job sound wonderful and promised promotion and opportunity. She had not idea what she was talking about and was probably spinning whatever she thought I wanted to hear without knowing what the company offers in terms of promotion. She told me I would be readily promoted once entering. That is totally untrue, and the opposite happens here. They pride themselves on saks university but it is pretty lame and they still work on a dos program from the eighties.
