Here at Saks, we base our interview process off the Saks Fundamentals in order to ensure an equitable interview process is conducted for all applicants. These Fundamentals permeate all roles within the organization and are consistent across all of our functional areas, and from a recruitment perspective allow us to understand the necessary requirements to succeed in the organization as a whole.
Each of our Fundamentals has their own set of behavioral questions that are asked during an interview based on the level of the position. These behavioral questions are designed to elicit examples of an applicant's past behavior in work situations, where their past performance is used as a performance indicator for the position in which they are being considered.
Our interview teams will set up individual scenarios using lead questions and may ask additional probing questions, and will then assess your answers against specific Behaviors tied to each Fundamental. These Behaviors inform our interviewers as to what each Fundamental looks like in action, and act as their foundation and anchor.
To ensure that you are best prepared for an interview at Saks, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with our Fundamentals.
