Supervisor (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – August 9, 2018
Saks is an amazing place to work and grow. They offered bonuses, which shows the company appreciate the work of the others. It is easy to be promoted. I would recommend this job to anyone. Training with this company prepares you for the job on the floor!! The staff is friendly. This is an amazing place to work!
A typical day at work was relaxed at times, but could become fast-paced in a matter of minutes. I learned how to effectively communicate with various people. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and building a great clientele list!

Definitely cut throat. But you have the ability to make a lot of money. The manager I had was a complete sweetheart and the store manager too. Everyone as wonderful to me. I will cherish my time there for a very long time.
Opportunity to move up in the company, uncapped commission, wonderful brands to work with and high end clients.
Business Manager (Former Employee) – Beverly Hills, CA – July 22, 2018
Retail can be a very demanding job. You don't get much freedom to make your own schedule. So there is essentially no work like balance. You also stand all day long with a one hour break to eat. Goals are constantly increasing at unreasonable rates.
A typical day went by very slow, the traffic in the store is extremely low making it very boring and tedious, the retail hours and the random schedule was very difficult to follow trying to maintain a healthy work and home life. The store is very pretty and being around fashion helps employees to learn how to dress fashionable, the discounts for employees were a perk and very tempting for spending a good amount of the earnings trying to dress accordingly with their dress code.

Flexible schedule is good for college kids, aside from that I wouldn't recommend this place. Too negative and toxic of an environment. Not just because of management and associates but customers play a big role in this too.

Saks really pulls you into their culture. You meet lots of interesting people and the company allows you to work with them through out the store. Its a young, hip, and fun job!! They really encourage you to have fun at work. They also respect their employees and will go to bat for them.
Great work environment. always upbeat and fun!!
Standing on concrete floors can take a toll on the body.
