I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great products and services provided. Nice bonus structure with opportunities to make a lot of money if you are sales driven. Nice full time benefits as well.

Cons

Same as other retail stores... Not always pleasant customers to deal with on rare occasions, and must be very motivated to sell so that you may keep your pay where it is and bonus.

    Pros

    The discount is definitely the best thing.

    Cons

    Everything. Lack of management, commission vs. draw, treatment from higher ups is awful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gain some respect for the sales associates and stop treating them like doormats.

    Pros

    Training program
    Discount
    Work with some really great people

    Cons

    The work culture is tiring and gets very stale. There is absolutely no work/life balance. Work expectations are unrealistic. I have done early mornings, late nights and weekends the past 3+ years I have been with the company. I agree with many of the reviews on here re: favorites. VPs and SR VPs do have favorites, and they always happen to be the ones that are valued for other qualities over their work. Shocker. And these favorites are not most people and they do get promoted much faster. Raises are sad. Approx. 2% for Assistants this year. The corporate offices need a makeover. The bathrooms are gross and there are no kitchens. Systems are down. A LOT. This makes it hard to do our jobs. Most people at the company complain a lot, but stay for the discount.
