    I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good money - nice discount

    Cons

    top-level, top-down management style was not conducive to long-term, loyal employees. Very agressive sales technique used & encouraged. If the sales team is treated fairly & therefore WANT to do a great job; then comes commitment & loyalty which breed great service - the sales will come!!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the front line. They are your best asset..
    Pay attention to them. Praise & acknowledge them when appropriate.

    I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great working environment, excellent and thorough training experience, good discount, great colleagues and great customers

    Cons

    Salarie is very dependent on how good of a sales associate you are, so one must work a lot and build strong clientele to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Support your sales staff and help them learn the ins and outs of selling.
