I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Generous discount, payscale about industry standards and you work with wonderful clients.

Cons

Work life balance is very challenging due to the nature of the business.

Advice to Management

Continue to work on work life balance, the number of black outs at times causes the store to be short staffed during non events and over staffed during event.

Other Employee Reviews for Saks Fifth Avenue

  1. "Not a great work environment."

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

    Pros

    The reason the job is appealing is primarily the opportunity to sell high price point items and make a good commission.

    Cons

    Low employee morale due to regular negative feedback by Saks Corporate, store-wide low sales, poor communication, and draw-on-commission, which lends itself to a cut-throat, high stress and low support environment.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication between corporate, management, and associates. Develop a stronger company/store identity. Provide more incentive for teamwork between associates rather than 100% brutal competition, or customer service suffers.


  2. "I loved working for this company!"

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

    Pros

    The management team at the Las Vegas location is fantastic. They were always very helpful and understanding. The New York Jewelry Buying Office rolled out the red carpet at our annual meetings. We always had a great time!

    Cons

    If only they paid more I would have stayed with the company forever :(.

    Advice to Management

    Give better raises, especially to those employees who are really deserving.
