A Great Opportunity To Work For A Company With Class
District Loss Prevention Manager (Former Employee) – Cincinnati Ohio – September 27, 2016
Every day was different and allowed you to use the many skills you had acquired over your career. Working in a large metropolitan area at a premier store required dedication and a love for the people that you serve. The merchandise was top of the line and a clientele that required first class service. My co-workers were hard working and filled with team spirit.
Comm. sales Designer Salon (Former Employee) – Bal Harbour Shops Fla. – September 22, 2016
The opportunities for growth, the wonderful people I met and served. Always had good relationship with my managers. Some of those relationships have evolved into loyal friendships I value and treasure. The culture is one of tremendous product knowledge. The day starts with meetings where all areas of the store have featured products everyone is educated about. My customer relations were always the most enjoyable part. I had one of the most moving amazing retirement parties ever seen in the store.After a year away from what has been my lifeline I want to be a part of it again and hope to find a new fresh fit with the same commitment to excellence.Saks reinforced that commitment in me.
Amazing opportunity for growth.Customer relations.
Corporations evolve & change. The energy changes. And so do we.
Sales (Former Employee) – Huntington Station, NY – September 21, 2016
You come in help customers and clean at the same time. More staff was needed. I learned to use the register and tactics to help customers. Mangement needed more training on how to conduct themselves and not to gossip. The hardest part was cleaning after a very busy day. I enjoyed the free lunchs, raffles, associate appreciation week when your second break was extended and the employ discount was the best!
free lunch, associate appreciation week, great deals
management was rude, gossip to work to much, and if you were in the hospital and couldn't come to work they acted more rude.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bal Harbour, FL – September 20, 2016
The worst place to work people is rude managers don't care about the workers is all about numbers !! Not traffic in the store only employees, and they are always fighting for sales!! They will fire people every week !! The Heavy set Woman from human resurces is the nasty's people u ever meet !

Working at Saks sometimes can be alright. Ive learned how to communicate better and smile at all time! Learned how to satisfy every customer. The management their is great. My co-workers are very fun and always energetic. The hardest part of the job will be , trying to keep up with every count of merchandise each customer brings in and out of the fitting room. The most enjoyable part of my job must be when we have group meetings.
Shiping Lead (Former Employee) – Ontario, CA – August 19, 2016
Saks Fifth Avenue west coast warehouse days usually started at 7:00 a.m. Clear the conveyor belt for more inventory from receiving dock. Prepare for hanging garments as well. Sometimes had to stay past 3:30 but not very often. I learned about how a warehouse operates and how to co-operate with other supervisors to get the job done right the first time. Management had their good days and bad days And I got along well with most of them. The same goes for my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was sometimes working 10-12 hours a week day and eight hours on Saturday, but that was due to the holiday season. The most enjoyable part was getting to know some very interesting people.
Designer Handbags (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 15, 2016
Saks is a great company to work for. You really feel like you are in charge of your own business in cultivating customers into clients. Although there isn't really room for advancement it is still a very satisfying job. Managers are very friendly and easy to talk to. They really do try to balance your personal and work time so it benefits you. The most enjoyable part of my job is the connections I make with my clients and how I make them feel when they leave.
Skincare Specialist (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 14, 2016
My experience at Saks Fifth Avenue was excellent. I worked as a part time permanent freelancer at the rate of $25-30 per hour, however the product was removed from the store and my position was eliminated.
Sales Associate/Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 9, 2016
It is a good atmosphere to work in and the customer service is excellent. I learned how to do encaps and tables. I learned better communication skills and how to obtain my prior knowledge to help me better assist customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is accomplishing my every day task and making sure my customers leave satisfied.
La Mer Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 9, 2016
Unrealistic sales expectations and very slow pace . Expected to call email and write letters to customers to get them buy more or come back into the store. Associates stealing sales from others to meet goals and increase commission check
My typical work day can go easy or be challenging. I like my Manager that I have currently because he is very respectful and thinks about our family lives when it comes to our work. My co-workers make the environment fun and less stressful. They also help whenever needed without judgement. The hardest part of my job is just wanting to believe people are good until proven otherwise. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to do the right thing.
company has prizes and treats and plans special events to make employees feel good.
