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

Pros

You can sell throughout the store and are encouraged to. The clients and coworkers are generally very nice. Opportunities are limitless but difficult to achieve

Cons

Opportunities are limitless but there is a lot of pressure to clientele, do returns and assist in the general running of the store all of which take away from sales performance

Advice to Management

Focus on priorities and help workers achieve their goals

    I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and discount - if you care for the label.

    Cons

    The compensation system for selling is a disaster. It is hard to cover the draw, which is the minimum wage, after all the deductions your check doesn't cover expenses to show up at work. And yet, more people is hired to compete on selling floor.

    Advice to Management

    1.Why don't you reconsider the compensation system: a base + commission ? The check would be more predicable, this would improve the morale which influences customer service level.
    2.Do you really believe that putting more selling force improve the numbers? It just deludes income of everyone, causes huge turnover among employees which doesn't help to build customer relation and to assure quality service adequate to the standard of the store. Saks become The Revolving Door Store!
