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

Pros

The pay was excellent during season due to high traffic in the store.

Cons

The full time employees were a daily challenge to work with. Very territorial and unhelpful.

Advice to Management

Please encourage team work. It's a good company to work for in today's world. But the dynamic at this store was tough. It was always about #s. Team work is absent here and it made for a difficult working environment.

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

    Pros

    Great discount! You have the ability to create, grow, and develop your own business and success. Those individuals who are determined and ambitious have room to flourish. People are friendly and willing to assist you.

    Cons

    Not for those who wish to coast by - fast paced and demanding.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to mentor those individuals with high potential and continue investing in training entry level positions so that internals can grow within the company. I would love to see even more of the upper level positions being filled by internal candidates.
