Didn't feel valued or welcomed in the work environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
More responsibilities were placed on some more than others, and it seemed there was a divide as management picked "favourites." It was a chill place to work overall, but what made it stressful was feeling undervalued and simply not enough. This store is notorious for bad reviews and poor customer service, however if you are committed to the customers and helping others, it is a positive and enjoyable experience trying to help people find what they are looking for, or finding alternatives that work for them. You learn a lot of problem solving skills and you learn to multi-task in a big store with lots to do.

Pros

Friendly and amicable coworkers

terrible

Staff was extremely friendly but management had favourites and showed that through scheduling and the way they treated you at work. the environment at work was toxic and always stressful as we were always short staffed due to the amount of people quitting

Staff needs improvement

Brainless work. Staff was accommodating for the most part. Key holders were all nice, willing to work with you and teach you things or give you some tasks to break up the day. Management was average. HIGH turn over. Most are students called in sick or were late on a daily basis. A very small amount of core staff. Most days it seemed like a task for other employees just to say hi to you when walking onto the sales floor at the beginning of your shift. Seemed like the manager had to overcompensate on staff friendliness.

Pros

Good discount

Cons

Poor management Poor staff High turnover

Under staff. Management lacks communication

for a minimum wage job the amount of work load is too much. managers back stabbed each other in front of employees and communication with the management team is very poor

Clean and productive work area.

A good environment I enjoyed the people that I worked with they were very friendly and flexible with hours. a typical work day involved many different stations either cash or fitting rooms or could even just be communicating with customers.

Pros

accepting coworkers

Cons

not enough hours

Not Well Handled

I helped open Saks OFF 5th and it was a disaster, terrible rude head management undermining the assistant managers attempts to create a healthy work environment.
