Sales Associate (Twisted Heart Specialist) (Former Employee) –  fifth avenueOctober 16, 2018
great products to sell and offer to customers and the fifth avenue location is a gem in particular to work at. I also liked the employee cafeteria and the fact that they cook food on the premises.

Great place to work. High fashion and fast paced. Relationship building a must.
Processing Team Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 1, 2018
Open store, email, prioritize, check in and meet with staff, assign job responsibilities for the day. Attend management meeting, oversee and participate in getting out the merchandise, shipping and receiving and merchandising floors. Working with customers, other managers and associates. Then markdowns, rtv's, salvage, retickets, and floor prep. Attend prep meeting for needs for following day. Let staff go. Follow up on all buyer requests. Close. Management task and sales oriented. Best part working with buyers, management, employees, customers and fashion. The Christmas, inventory, and night weekend hours were the worst part of management.
Pros
Working in high fashion with employees, buyers, customers and management.
Cons
Long hours, physical, fast paced and demanding.

Don’t do it
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 26, 2018
HBC is a failing company, and the only people that stand a chance are upper management. A close friend even works at another location where several employees walked out and quit because they were all led to believe the commission structure is better than reality. At this point they are just looking to stay afloat, hence the fire sale of gilt, and the closures of Lord and Taylor Stores.

Risk Analyst (Former Employee) –  Jackson, MS 39209September 20, 2018
Saks Fifth Avenue was a great place to work, holidays in the office were full of laughter and cheer. The workload wasn't at all overwhelming and you were rewarded with raises and chances to win prizes, not to mention the flexible hours for the early birds and mid day people. My experience there was nothing less than satisfying and I would love to work for this company again.

ok place to work part time not a career
Yves Saint Laurent Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOSeptember 11, 2018
It's a Ok place to work if you are looking for part-time work. The company does not promote from within therefore no advancement. Also they do not offer pay raises. HR and Senior Management encourage you to sell more if you would like to see more money.
