I have been working at Saks Fifth Avenue full-time

Pros

You are encouraged to create a "book of clients"and "run your own business." You are fairly autonomous and you are able to run your business the way you see fit. Management is easily approachable and will assist you.

Cons

It takes a while to be an accepted to the sales team. There is a double standard between the sales staff and the management team. The CEO is under a lot of pressure to perform, and is raising the bar on a daily basis. To succeed you need to open Credit Accounts and do end of the sale Surveys.

    I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue as an intern

    Pros

    The only pros was the employee discount.

    Cons

    Worst internship ever. No one was prepared for us and our manager was super rude to us the whole time. There was a lot of favoritism. Every employee I met told me how much they hated the company. When we complained about certain things we got ignored and lectured. One of the interns quit halfway through and then our manager quit. :( I wished I never applied here. The company culture is old and does not want to change. They tell you if you work there you will have career growth, but honestly you will most likely just stay as a Store Director. Hard to move to Corporate according to everyone who worked there. The fact that our manager quit shows that.

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared for interns. Treat us with respect and don't talk down to us.
