    I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with top talent in industry for the most forward looking luxury department store.

    Cons

    Integration with HBC is causing short-term system integration problems. IT is woefully out-of-date which slows down and frustrates customers and their experience. Smaller market doors can be neglected.

    Advice to Management

    Increased transparency on struggles with IT integration. More thorough training on luxury selling skills for new associates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Saks Fifth Avenue (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening and then two in person interviews. One with the HRM and The other with the Group Manager. They were far too concerned about volume experience, then my actual skill set.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions until we got to volume at the time I was managing about 4million which was concerning.   Answer Question
