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.
