One a staple of southern charm, culture, and family values has turned into a complete disaster. Stores are a mess, employees are quitting left and right, store managers are here one day, gone the next, loyal "elite" customers are long gone, replaced... — read more

What does the article in today's Charlotte Observer say about Belk
Anyone heard if we are receiving either of these this year? I know we got screwed out of one last year is this going to be the new norm?
Serious question. Which dumb as or dumb ases are in charge of determining the weekly sale, daily deals, and weekly spotlight up in corporate?! I work at the flagship store in Charlotte and we hardly see any corporate employees shopping in store... — read more
Office supplies retailer Staples on Monday said it made an offer to buy Office Depot owner ODP Corp for $2.1 billion in cash, nearly five years after its second takeover effort was rejected. But you guyz here keep saying Syc n Belk & co are... — read more
Hi everyone! I work at a medium size store, and have been with the company for a few months. I moved from NY to the south and this was the only job that I could find that paid “decently;” $42k a year. While I know that is A LOT, compared to many... — read more
belk can do away with $180,000 a year RVP’S, they are a waste of money.
Any rumblings about layoffs or store closings in 2021 yet?
I'm just curious. Has anyone had to file unemployment to make up for the reduced hiurs?
Still have the virus and business hasn’t improved. The only thing that’s changed is the calendar. Good luck to all of us. Buckle up folks
Belk remains a company of concern as many other troubled companies' names are cleared from the default watch list. Full story here: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.adweek.com/commerce/2020-was-a-watershed-year-for-retail-bankruptcies/amp/
Lisa Harper owns this hotel. when will it reopen? nothing says "one belk" more than a luxury resort in Mexico.
What’s wrong Belkers? Why so quiet on post holiday sales? One Belk must be working!
Managers no where to be found. our managers (three on duty) mysteriously disappeared today (Christmas Eve), we were calling and calling and nobody was answering for over an hour. I work in Cosmetics and myself and two other associates searched the... — read more
A friend works there and I know they have it much, much better than we do in every aspect. She could put in a good word for me so the chances are I'd get a job. But still I'm hesitating. I'm scared of changing my job, being the last person in and if... — read more
Twas the day before Christmas and all through the store, things are disorganized, filthy and more Employees are scared and some of them sad, the way we are treated made most of us mad But let the execs sleep soundly in bed, while visions of dollar... — read more
I’ve heard from a very good source that RVP’S will be on the chopping block in 2021. So will some store managers. Have a feeling they will let people go without mercy.
Happy FESTIVUS, this is your special day to complain.
I haven’t had anything to be cheery about this season. I dread coming into work as it is, but I know that for the next few days after Christmas we’re going to have a ridiculous amount of returns. And take into account that we’re short staffed as it... — read more
If a company can only pay employees at most fifteen bucks an hour and can’t even give them 40 hrs as full time they must be in severe financial trouble.
My hours have been less than 28 a week for months now and I was eventually forced to get a 2nd job. I don’t know how the company can expect us to prioritize them first when the hours we are being provided aren’t enough to be sustainable. Now I have a... — read more
the way belk is operating is not normal. Period.
Let’s make it happen folks! The magic word- Conversion!
Belk after the holiday's is going to be a mix of empty shelves, no customers, layoffs, and store closings. what a complete mess. get out now if you can.
Belk needs to hire more people. It is ridiculous the workload that the company puts on employees. It is Christmas season staff appropriately!
From the macy's layoff page "We lost our DVP to Belks along with half the store managers in our district who he recruited. " So Belk is still hiring. Still recruiting. And still, after nearly two decades that I am familiar with, hiring Macy's... — read more
I’ve always wondered that. Wouldn’t it make more sense to attract customers that actually HAVE money to spend? Instead of someone trying to get another 65% off a sweater that is already $9.99?
"If you are in your 20's, 30's, 40's or even your early 50's, you should consider alternatives while you can rather than stay with a company that will continue to downsize, increase workload to even more unmanageable levels, and have fewer and few... — read more
Do y'all think the company will make it mandatory for employees to take the Covid 19 vaccine?
belk is using covid as an excuse to cut costs to the bare minimum at the store level and use they money to give the executive team six figure bonuses, covid is the perfect excuse.
Belk is not progressing the same way as other retail stores. It’s now mid-December, fitting rooms are still closed, lines are still long (One register open), furloughs have been called back, but where are they? Most of them are only working one day a... — read more
Wow. This site has NOTHING to do with being laid off at Belk. It’s just a board to post all of your gripes. If you’re so miserable, your job is so bad, your hours are getting cut, One Belk is a farce, Executive leadership is non- existent... — read more
I just want to send out a huge THANK YOU for all the grand memories you’ve given me so far. I’ve sooooo enjoyed all the hours that I’ve been overworked followed by an increase in stress levels caused by my managers. I especially applaud cutting my... — read more
Spending money on upgrading the warehouse. Albeit a rather small sum. Hmmm. That kinda goes against much of the scuttlebutt here that Belk will soon be bust. What about the stores you ask? What about them? Who needs stores anymore. Did... — read more
Anyone else hearing STM's in some stores are working normal 5 day work weeks instead of the 6 day work weeks for the holiday? But still collecting their comp time?
just so you know...Don Hendricks HATES going in stores, he will make up any excuse to avoid it. He also refers to store level workers (managers included) as “those people” ...truly a slimeball.
