Overall Reviews at Saks Fifth Avenue

Fine Jewelry Sales Associate | San Francisco, CA | Mar 11, 2020
Saks was a tough job because you are on a commission structure and there is not much clientele. My manager was wonderful, but upper management was uncaring of their employees
Customer Service Representative | New Orleans, LA | Jul 19, 2019
Its Avery good place to work
I'm happy at Saks at the moment. the pay is low and I wish they would get rids the commission policy in New Orleans. commission verses draw is killing my checks. most of my commission earned got to a draw based on your hourly wages.
Fine Jewelry Sales Associate | Los Angeles, CA | Jul 10, 2018
good for college students
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.
Sales Specialist | Cincinnati, OH | Dec 30, 2019
Not the best Saks store. Very old and dated and no high end luxury brands like Fendi or Gucci.
I worked at Saks Fifth Avenue in Cincinnati Ohio so it was different. Saks was a commission environment and it lead to a lot of unhealthy competition. It was a very slow paced store and employees would often fight over customers. It was an unhealthy environment because of that. Employees didn't want to help other employees if they weren't going to get paid behind said help.. The store I worked for was often empty.
Style Consultant | Greenwich, CT | Aug 24, 2019
Nothing to say
The customers were great. I enjoyed selling. The area was convenient. Flexible hours. Enjoyed the job, the product, and the guest. I would recommend it to anyone.
Beauty Consultant | Hackensack, NJ | May 28, 2019
Upscale Customer Retail
If you love customer service building and fashion. Saks is a nice place to work. I worked at a smaller location in Hackensack NJ, so you must focus, take your time, and articulate your skills to build relationships and repeat business with your clients, providing the best service, and follow ups. This location of Saks has closed.
Assistant Sales Manager | Boca Raton, FL | Sep 3, 2019
Stressful job
Stressful, demanding job. Not very gratifying. There is no opportunity for advancement. Its been a while since I work there. At this time I have nothing more to add
Planner | New York, NY | Jul 19, 2018
worst place to work
terrible work/life balance and company culture. management is the worst ever, no room to grow, advance or achieve anything in this environment. very sad place to work.
Style Consultant | Palm Beach, FL | Feb 2, 2020
Productive and Nice work environment
I loved working at saks palm beach because it felt like home, everyone is genuinely amazing. It can be a fast pace environment which is good to meet goals.
Customer Service Representative | Jackson, MS | Oct 3, 2019
Just a job
Only good part about Saks was working from home. Overtime was mandatory and if you missed a day due to illness it was unexcused even with a doctor's note. Work it until you find something else. Management is all over the place.. no one backs you if you have an issue with a customer.

Questions And Answers about Saks Fifth Avenue

Why did you leave your job at Saks Fifth Avenue?
Asked Mar 27, 2017
They fired me but told me how great of an employee I was and that they had nothing but good things to say about me. And the truth was I am a hard worker one of the most hardworking in that department it’s just that manager hated me. The best he said he could do was put me in the system to be rehired if I applied again.

If you were in charge, what would you do to make Saks Fifth Avenue a better place to work?
Asked Jan 30, 2018
I’d not pick favorites like they usually do... fire or cut down the hours for the employees who do the bare minimum and actually show recognition to the ones who do work which leads me to the next point of being more present on the floor. I’d help struggling salespeople and show them tactics on how to approach customers better and how to close the purchase. Because reading a module is generic and sometimes people need hands on help.
Answered Mar 16, 2020
Be a “people person”, fight for more hours, and acknowledge everyone for their hard work. Upper management should be knowledgeable about what and how much there is to do in every department.
