    I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Double Discount Days, extra pay for credits, recognition for MORE cards registration, morning meetings where we discuss not just the day ahead, but the week ahead as well. Discounts at full-line stores, too. Allows for flexible schedules whether a mom, a student or a full-time specialist. They seem to care, but sometimes seem too busy to notice.

    Cons

    Wish pay was better and wish reviews came regularly. When payroll is short, the floor is limited as to how many people will be on the floor...which can be quite daunting in a 25,000 sq. foot store. The management seems beaten down and can't seem to get out of the back office and onto the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the back office and out on the floor. Monitor what's going on with your merch team and the merch leader. When the leader is out of town, the store seems to run much more efficiently. Be there to participate, not just delegate.
