    I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time

    Pros

    Ability to buy for luxury retailer , vendor and coworker relationships are great

    Cons

    All work and no pay. No recognition. They only celebrate a certain type of employee and if you're a minority's you're barely noticed for the work you do even if you work twice as hard as your counterparts. Take the job if offered but get out after a year.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify your top management and hire more people and pay people what they deserve.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Saks Fifth Avenue.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick. First you are screened by HR which is very technical, the personal shoppers are very down to earth and it flowed like a conversation.
