Sales Associate (Current Employee), Columbus, OH – November 19, 2013
The company is rich in history and iconic presence for New York City but there is a lot of politics in the culture. Ivy League applicants and those with pedigrees have a much better chance of landing the job. The best part of working at headquarters is the variability of day to day work and the relationships made with the high end vendors.

This is not a very professional workplace... which starts with the management and ends with the disgruntled employees. Often, you can find yourself working eight consecutive days without management realizing it.
You have to be extremely proactive to make sure you have the right tools you need to have a somewhat healthy existence in this store. My advice – more... is to do all work correspondence via email so you have written proof of dealings with management and HR. – less

Cons: management and associate interaction, poor communication amongst the department as a whole.
A typical work day at Saks Fifth Avenue consisted of answering up to 3 chats at once. I mostly assisted with an order that had been placed by a customer who was simply following up on their order, or I was actually assisting placing the order for the customer. I also assisted with any discrepancies with orders, billing information, and/or shipping information. – more... The hardest part of the job was to be sure to assist everyone in a timely manner even when there may be an irate customer that I may be assisting as well. It can be a challenge to make each customer feel you are focused on just them individually when actually, there may be more than one you're assisting at once, however, I managed to do so. I really enjoyed assisting all customers, and chatting with them was the best. I also worked from home doing my job, in which was indefinitely the best part of working for Saks Fifth Avenue. – less
