Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Name on resume, and very flexible scheduling, thats all.

Cons

Image of company is deceiving! Brown-nosing coworkers and managers, no trust amongst anyone, HR enforces hostility and complaints against employees for no reason, draw pay structure = basically commissions only....and had to pay $80 a month in parking fees! Here's the bonus: this company is so cheap, they served a bag of 99 cent hersheys kisses for employee appreciation week.....I could write a book about how misleading this company is for future fashion and sales / marketing professionals

Advice to Management

Pay salary and commission, stop enforing hostile competition, train your managers to know how to use (or at least open) the registers. This was an embarassment of a company to work for.
