I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue

Pros

great discounts and double discount for employees
good company for your resume
when busy you can make good money

Cons

they keep some employees who have been there for a long time but arent performing. It costs to much to fire and then rehire so they never let go of those who should be!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

you need to recognize when there are employees who are negative to have in the department even if they've been there for years

    I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue

    Pros

    Nice discount, good selection of higher end items.
    The other associates are usually friendly and nice.
    POS system updated with good information on clients.

    Cons

    Can never get promoted in this store.
    Doing a good job just gets you more work, but no recognition.
    Job description is changed from day to day.
    Hypocrites of the largest kind.
    Associates treated like dirt, that's why the turnover is so high.
    Runs on a skeleton crew, so upper management makes more bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doesn't matter, they will not listen. Tell the truth, and appreciate a job well done, no matter the department. The happiness and tone of a store starts at the top.

    I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue

    Pros

    Great discount (which I use way too much), fellow employees are fun and very nice

    Cons

    Work can be mundane and boring as a sales associate, management doesn't provide a lot of information to sales associates about company information and future promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication from management, I want to know more about store financials and upcoming promotions. I have seen improvement from 2 years ago, but more can be done to give employees more information.
