Managers jumping off like it’s the titanic. we are loosing managers (and associates alike) left and right. can’t blame them one bit.
Topics regarding layoffs at Belk
To me it doesn't seem to be as bad as some people are suggesting. What am I missing?
Hello, is there any information on the future of alterations associates for Belk Stores. Will furloughs become layoffs or termination with severance?
Can you believe those Thanksgiving hours !
Customers can now order items and have them delivered to their front door the same day by a Belk employee. Any thoughts on this?
So I was I informed my furlough ended on a Saturday, I was told this about 2 weeks out, with the next day the start of my first week of availability. Scheduled 0 hours that first week. That week was followed by another week scheduled 0 hours. 14 days... — read more
Belk is not belk. Period. change the name of the store.
I just want to ask to fellow belk associates if this is happening to you. Are you in a store that has several people who only have to run a register or sit at a door while you are working out freight, unboxing freight, recovering, setting sales... — read more
I was an ASM for one year at Belk until about six months after they sold it. Our store manager was horrible. She was fired right before I quit. They told the associates she "retired" LOL.
The store manager seems scared of the other managers - they aight though. Store is a cluttered and ugly. People tryin leave to other jobs.
I’ve worked in three different stores and they all say the same thing “be thankful to have a job”, “it’s ok to quit if you don’t like it here (my favorite one), and “the grass is not always greener” , well after quitting Belk I can tell you the grass... — read more
Does anyone know if Belk is going to open this Thanksgiving ?
Belk is going to pure store managers and STM’s galore in early 2021. Some stores will have an STM as “acting store manager”. Regional’s will also be on the chopping block. Store Managers enjoy your cushy job while it lasts.
I have explained to several managers that we need help. This business cannot function with the minimal staffing they schedule. When you tell them they change the subject. Im tired of being yelled at by customers because you schedule one associate... — read more
Our store manager is paid $90,000 plus a year to do Minimal fulfillment, sit in office on personal cell phone, make coffee and burn popcorn. And leave at 4pm but schedule everyone else to work grunt hours. wTF is going on? We all need To protest... — read more
Just wondering....nobody has seen or heard from her
Given this site is completely annonymous. Why aren't you providing your store locations? Indeed commenters list their store location and name names too. Why not here? Are bigger stores in as much chaos as smaller mid-size ones? — read more
Forbes Magazine is reporting that Belk is not paying home goods vendors, some 90 days past due. The company is also radio silent and will not respond to requests for an interview. It also says that Sycamore has a poor track record and is not known... — read more
Everyone who currently works at Belk KNOWS what I’m talking about! There is always some form of restructuring or another. Change after change after change with layoffs only compounding the problem. I bet most of us aren’t given the hours we deserve... — read more
Does anyone else feel uncomfortable using the counter phones during covid? When we call customer service about a problem with Belk card they sometimes ask to speak to customer and then ask to speak to us again. We are passing a phone that has been... — read more
I hear that the furloughs are being called back. Will that be all furloughed even full timers ? Would they do that and just let them go in January like they do the holiday help ?
Just wondering...how far behind are YOUR stores markdowns? I know our store is weeks and months, depending on the department. Some haven’t been done since before furloughs.
Belk looks like a storm went through it . It's not the associates fault. There are not enough of them working to keep the place clean. The company is letting it go to the dogs.
Don’t let this smokescreen of hiring “elves” and bringing back $10/hr furloughs back create the illusion that belk is now doing well, because it’s not. It is by far in the worst shape of any American department store chain, JC Penney, Kohl’s, and... — read more
The Christmas "elves" memo is belks way of saying they will hire temps until January at Min, Wage, but are not bringing back long term associates on furlough because they are not sure what will happen in 2021.
Belk is now in the process of hiring Christmas help or "elves" as Belk calls them in the memo. Hopefully they willl bring back the furloughs before hiring temp elves.
People forget that way before covid-19 was even around Belk was cutting store shopping hours, cutting employee hours, and had poor inventory. It is now late September 2020 and Belk seems to be taking things day by day with no real positive outlook... — read more
Is there anyone else still on furlough ?
Returns in our store are out of control! I have to work the return area frequently and it stays slammed,. The lines are often 10-15 deep and filled with angry and frustrated customers. We have no staff to put the returns back when they come out of... — read more
I'm just speechless at the online business belk has. it makes zero sense. A customer orders 6 Kim Rodgers T Shirts at $5.99 each and they ship from 6 different stores, each package costs atleast $5.00 to ship, so they spent $30 on shipping for a $36... — read more
Their online business has been cut to the bone. They ship from various shipping locations and incur the multiple shipping charges for each item. The items are normally from 65 - 80 percent off already, so any profit margin is gone. This is a sign... — read more
I have an opportunity to make a career change. I would be working on straight commission as a service advisor at an auto dealership. The low end pay I would be bringing in would be like working 28-30 hours a week at Belk, middle would be 40, and... — read more
Our Belk store is currently a dumpster fire! The amount of new freight receipts and the amount of customers and returns are unmanageable under current staffing. We need more hours and associates for this store to function. When will they ever... — read more
We have store managers and STM's working only day shifts like a 9-4 and not working weekends. We have some employees that only work day shifts as well that are "manager's pets" types. Should this be allowed?
A sign that says customers must wear masks, but they can still shop if they dont have one on. Quarantine of returns, but customers are still trying stuff on in back of the store or the restroom. Belk does not tell employees when a coworker... — read more
Are they planning on operating as "one belk" for good with minimal staff? If so, most people are gonna leave before year end.
Target and Hobby Lobby just announced starting pay increase. Belk you are in the slow lane. With all that this company demands from it's employees you should be ashamed at the pay you start at.
I read on here somewhere that Belk is not opening for Thanksgiving this year. Does anyone know if that's true ? You would expect them not to be open with covid ramping back up again in some places.
A very good source at corporate said that small doors will have a store manager, stm, and lead Key carrier, medium doors will have a store manager, stm, and two lead key carriers, and large doors will have a store manager, two STM’s and two leaf key... — read more
