    Jewelry Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Saks (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    This job is impossible to get unless you have a client book, very different from Macy's where you'd think customers from all over the world to shop. But they did offer me an opportunity in the shoe department.

    I interviewed with the head of HR and a Cosmetic Manager. It was a straightforward interview process. Nothing uncomfortable or silly...Saks is big on catering to your guest and building the relationship so be prepared to accept returns for ANYTHING, used underwear etc..... You will be asked how you build a relationship with your clients, your follow up process and how you notify clients about special events etc..

    Interview

    It was a very short interview. The process was not made personal and very generic questions were asked. They wouldn’t have any idea of my capability from these questions

    Assistant Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Saks (New York, NY) in August 2008.

    Interview

    Accepted job from the saks hr recruiter who made the job sound wonderful and promised promotion and opportunity. She had not idea what she was talking about and was probably spinning whatever she thought I wanted to hear without knowing what the company offers in terms of promotion. She told me I would be readily promoted once entering. That is totally untrue, and the opposite happens here. They pride themselves on saks university but it is pretty lame and they still work on a dos program from the eighties.

    Assistant Planner Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Saks (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    HR doesn't really understand the job requirements. It really depends on who you will be working for directly. So in this instance the planner I interviewed was the person who decided if I got the job or not. In hindsight, I wished I passed on this job. The planner was very two-faced and threw me under the bus multiple times. Not worth the amount of stress this job gave me. Life is short, and it sucked my youth out of me.

    I applied through campus career portal. A couple of days later I had a 10 minute phone interview and then scheduled a time on campus.
