Unwelcoming staff & boring job
Style Advisor (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB6 juillet 2019
Most staff there, including many managers are very stuck up and will ignore you if you don’t have the right look. You are expected to sell unreachable targets and while you do make commission, there’s not many customers so you won’t make much also makes for long, boring shifts when you barely have any traffic. Very unwelcoming environment.

Fulfillment and Sales Associate (Employé actuel) –  Ottawa, ON14 juin 2019
minimum wage paid, and hard work ethic. enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet new people every now and then, challenge aspect of the job is dealing with very rude customers which I have become accustomed to in the long run.

I worked here for like 4 days and it was the most boring placed I've ever worked. If you like fashion, feel free to apply, but if you need stimulation and human interaction, don't work here.

Disaster.
Style Advisor (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON2 décembre 2018
We were sold a dream that this brand would be something great for Toronto. In reality, it's a shadow of what the states has to offer and HBC has only tarnished the name. Between bad management, an inadequate supply chain and a broken inventory system they really don'y have much to offer. Hours are crazy because they don't balance schedules, often departments are left understaffed or completely overstaffed. All the employees are miserable and it makes the culture very toxic.
Points positifs
possible good money, discounts
Points négatifs
management, culture, schedule

Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Winnipeg, MB5 octobre 2018
the whole store is a ** I don't even suggest my friends shopping to there, everything in the store was try by customers million times! they treated you like a cleaner! the manager will use fake slime to ask you clean, organized, they better hire a cleaner instead of sales! oh, probably they don't have enough budget to hire a cleaner :)

Terrible work environment.
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON21 août 2018
Negative work environment and managers do not care about you. Associates try stealing sales and all managers care about are numbers. Nothing is ever organized and the floor is always a mess! Doesn’t even feel like you’re working in a “luxuary” store. Terrible!
Inexperienced managers coming from Banana Republic that don’t understand the concept of building rapport with clients. They want you to juggle between customers which angers the customers and makes them feel like you’re abandoning them when they’re willing on spending $$$
Points positifs
The discount.
Points négatifs
Store manager Janet makes work environment very uncomfortable. She’s like a witch!

Terrible. Do not work here.
Style Advisor (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB30 juillet 2018
-fake people: every associate will be nice to you and smile at you BUT they will steal your sales or twist your words about your sale so that your manager gives you trouble and will believe them instead of you. also, if another associate has an issue with you they will go behind your back and tell a manager instead of confronting you instead. there are so many fake people at this location and it is not fun to work at.

-territorial about customers/clients: the company really emphasizes on clientelling and cross-selling (selling from all different departments) and this is not necessarily bad but it can get competitive when associates from other departments are in your department selling your merchandise.

-rich clients/customers: when you meet a rich customer who has not shopped here before, your first instinct is to give them exceptional customer service so that they'll come back to shop from you. and you are motivated because you want their sales so that you can make money. but this can sometimes backfire. everyone is different so some customers are not the type to ask you to be their personal shopper or necessarily contact you to let you know that they're coming and they want to buy something from you so it can hurt when you see that they've bought stuff from another associate. also, some customers will be rude to you because they're rich and they think that they can get whatever they want. this will hurt you. sadly, there are some customers out there that think that the amount of money that they have entitles them to be rude to you or expect a godly level of customer
  plus... service from you and if they don't receive this godly level of customer service, they WILL complain about you which can create so many issues for you (stress, anger, management pressure, etc.). some customers will even go as far as to complain about you in order for management to give them a discount and this WILL happen to you eventually.

-POOR COMMISSION STRUCTURE: some departments are on a different commission structure. this means that some people will literally HAVE to sell or else they will owe the company money that will be taken out of their paycheck (it is not wage + commission, it will be wage vs. commission). some departments are set up this way and there is nothing you can do about it. so make sure you read your contract before accepting this job. there is absolutely no way for you to renegotiate or ask for a different commission structure than those other associates in your department. the only way for this commission structure to be good is if they give you the merchandise that people want to buy, instead of giving you bad product. they have to work on that.

-usually slow: working on a weekday can be extremely boring and slow means no sales. so why would you show up to work when you know you'll be bored and LOSE money by standing there doing nothing?

-returns/not being able to sell: if you're on a wage vs. commission structure like mentioned above, it will stress you out if you don't sell much or if you get a big return. being on this structure means that you have to sell in order to make money so when you can't, it makes you feel terrible and it makes work not fun. for a part-timer, you should not be stressed about a PART TIME JOB but sadly this environment will cause stress.

-bad merchandise: as mentioned above, there is bad merchandise at this Saks location which makes it hard to sell. how do they expect me to sell when they are not giving us the brands that people want to buy??? makes no sense.

-managers don't care about you: this depends on which manager you work for. some managers care more than others, while others will not say a word to you if you say that you have a medical emergency and you can't work for a week. also mentioned above, they will sometimes not believe your side of a story or won't even let you tell them your side. there can be a lot of manager favourites.

-clientelling: there is a big emphasis on on the clientelling service with this company and it's understand that they want employees to reach out to their top clients but there is a limit to how much that associate can email the client or send them offers before they get annoyed. it's a "luxury" store but going out of your way to "invite them back" to shop with you each week will make you feel annoying.

-weekly promotions: lately there has been a promotion every single week and this is poorly thought out because it conditions the clients/customers to only shop when there is a promotion going on. having a promotion once every week is too much and yes, it DOES brings customers into the store and makes them shop but it's annoying to have to keep updated and learn the new exceptions/rules with each new promotion.

-unhelpful managers/management structure: basically how it works is that there's a store manager and a department manager for each department. this can be unhelpful because if you need help then the department managers are the only ones that can help you which can be stressful for you and for them because there are very few and they are hard to find. it would be so much more helpful if there were assistant managers for each department so that they can update you on new promotions/rules and help you when you can't find a manager.

-hard to stay up to date: basically if you don't work for a day you can miss a lot. sometimes coming into work after having 2 days off only to find out halfway through the shift that there's a new promotion going on or a new rule has been set in place is really frustrating. literally NO ONE TELLS YOU ANYTHING. even if you read their emails you still might not know everything. also, THERE ARE A LOT OF EMAILS TO READ.

-inability to contact higher ups: some higher ups don't have a phone for you to contact them which can be extremely frustrating if you are having a client issue or would like to talk to them about work related things. what's the point of a higher up person if they can't be reached and you're forced to contact other managers? you will literally not be able to talk one-on-one with higher ups.

-higher-ups are now wanting to only hire/replace former employees with people with commission experience (Holt Renfrew or Nordstrom) but no one is going to ditch their job to come work at Saks... especially with the poor merchandise, poor commission structure, and slow traffic.

-no work/life balance: this company may say that they understand that university students need certain days off or need less hours or what not but they are not compliant with what they say at all. the minimum hours is 25 a week, and if you're a university student and you want to keep your AMAZING discount at Saks then good luck asking for less hours...

Dishonest Management
Sales Associate (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB3 juillet 2018
Working at Saks started out to be a fun experience with lots of mentioned room for growth and opportunity as I was part of the team that opened the first store in the city. However, after a few months I noticed how incredibly dishonest the management was in terms of the sales structure and overall culture of the store. The management made empty promises and created an extremely toxic environment with my coworkers resulting in 8 of the original associates quitting within months. I was called just hours before my shift to hear that it was cancelled on many occasions, despite being a full-time employee, and began to feel uncertain about the future of the store. The most enjoyable part of the job was the discount.
Points positifs
Store discount, working with high end merchandise
Points négatifs
Under stocking, poor management, associates stealing sales with no repercussions

Client Service Representative (Employé actuel) –  Toronto, ON2 avril 2018
Stay far away from the Canadian venture of Saks. It is a joke. There is no sense of job stability, there is HUGE turnover, and upper management is dysfunctional. The company is so CHEAP! The parent company is the Hudson's Bay Company, need I say more?

Avoid at all costs!

Over worked, under appreciated
Store Merchandising Associate (Ancien employé) –  Toronto, ON26 février 2018
The days tend to be really long and management would alter your hours without much notice. You can expect to work at times with little direction and you would make decisions based on your judgement and then management who is never around when you needed them would not be supportive. The environment wasn't positive but I feel that changes have been made to try and improve things there.
