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

Pros

This job is corporate, so it has good benefits and some of the people there are wonderful.

Cons

The down side is that it is very seniority based, so there is little room for mobility until people retire.

Advice to Management

Be open to the the wants and needs of younger employees, when your staff begins retiring you will need people to fill their shoes.

    I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    For the type of work, it's a decent wage although some with less experience fare better than others in an identical role.

    Cons

    Blatant displays of favoritism, unrealistic goals, little to no room for advancement, far too many events for a store that claims not to be event driven.

    Advice to Management

    Equality. Each and every employee should receive the same treatment. Personal feelings and affections often cloud ones sense of fairness.
