I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue

Pros

Double discounts for employees are very good.

Cons

No place for growth or advancement. Pay is low and pressure is high. Higher management keeps pushing and does not realize that we cannot force customers to come in the store and make purchases. Sales associates are hit for the returns.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People on the floor know what they are doing. Please ask for their feedback instead of assuming that clientelling is enough to bring customers. A little more useful marketing is needed.

    I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time

    Pros

    good company, CEO very smart

    Cons

    Lots of inner office drama and gossip, high turnover, people that are promoted aren't necessarily a perfect fit for the job, the facility is old, no kitchens or place to eat lunch, it smells kind of funky; takes a long time to get promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a kitchen, seriously
