    Pros

    Good discount, although you must use your saks credit card in order to receive it.

    Cons

    Non-existent training- I had to research products in my own free time to have any idea what I was selling. Disinterested management that consistently understaffs in order to make their own bonus. A few employees make commission while the rest are expected to sell hundreds an hour with no incentive besides the barely over minimum wage pay. Immense pressure to sign people up for credit cards with a whopping $2 incentive. No insurance, no benefits. They will make sure you never work enough to qualify for those and hire you on a short hour basis so you will never accumulate time off.

    Pros

    The management team at the Las Vegas location is fantastic. They were always very helpful and understanding. The New York Jewelry Buying Office rolled out the red carpet at our annual meetings. We always had a great time!

    Cons

    If only they paid more I would have stayed with the company forever :(.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give better raises, especially to those employees who are really deserving.
