Some say that this show will last a maximum of two more years. What are your thoughts? I would not be surprised if it lasts even shorter.
Belk needs to address the serious problem of the “wardrobing” customer, typically a customer who buys clothing, wears it, and returns it. Belk also has the ticket switching customer who buys a $39.99 dress and puts a $99.99 tag from another brand on... — read more
Although I know that there are those who are not looking for anything new at all. What are you guys waiting for?
The self proclaimed “proven leader” with “years of leadership under his belt” is conspicuously absent from any internet videos, social media, YouTube videos, etc... In fact try to search the internet for anything related to Don or Donald Hendricks... — read more

belk reminds me of the game Jenga. its gonna tip soon.
I have a question about all the fuss over presale. Cosmetic or Charity day. Management only seems to care about what we do in presale versus our over all goal. We are constantly being harassed if we aren’t where they think we should be in presale... — read more
Store Manager and RVP both job hunting together. Both were seen at interview for another company by store manager at another location. This says a lot. Is everyone fixing to bail?
Just a quick question. What is the lowest a full time associate should be getting in hours for the week? Currently my store has been giving full time 28 hours.
No matter how much I work and how well I do my job, my manager is always there to criticize me. He doesn't do it to get me to work better, he simply does everything he can to make me feel worthless. I really need this job, but I'm sick of this... — read more
With the current turmoil at Belk corporate, (nir patel lawsuit, executives jumping ship at an epic rate) can belk suddenly fold if there is literally no leadership left? Are more people jumping ship?
Nir Patel is in hot water after Belk filed a lawsuit aganinst him today for "recruiting belk's employees to Game Stop" , "stealing payroll information", and "unetical business practices".
Maybe they can't stand me either, but I'm certainly not a slacker who does almost nothing other than brown-nosing and backstabbing my colleagues. Those are the type of people I work with and I hope I won't have to do so for much longer. How to put... — read more
Sooo does anyone know the reward policy for when employees catch and help prevent shoplifters? I recently helped stop a instance where these guys tried to get away with $2000 worth of kids clothing and have been told I’d be rewarded. I’m just... — read more

The situation here has been rather hopeless for a long time now. Things are becoming uglier every day. It's much easier to find a job when you already have a job so for those who haven't considered looking for something new, now is the high time. I... — read more
What are the shifts like at your store? Mine is usually us getting off at 6:00 or we get off at 9 if we close. Then they put the schedules out right before the new week and try to change it the day of your shift. Is it like that anywhere else?
I am currently working in a small store and I am very dissatisfied. I'm looking for a new job in another company, but I'm wondering how much better it is to work at a bigger Belk store? Maybe someone here has worked in both, small and large, so... — read more
If they cut my hours I will quit, because I simply won't be able to pay the bills and I will have to look for a new job. Is Belk really doing so badly that they still have to cut hours? How far is this place from rock bottom anyway?
I’m gonna circle back to the smoke and mirrors post a few weeks ago, hiring new help but cutting hours of current help creates the illusion that belk is doing well, so does buying merchandise from defunct retailers that was closeout and marking it up... — read more
belk’s losing tons of money in shipment costs with its extremely high rate of returns. tens of thousands of belk orders get partially returnd or fully returned. Smaller belk stores, and slower low traffic belk stores particularly in rural areas have... — read more
we were told to "hire, hire, hire" earlier this year and then it started up again last week. but they want us to hire and cut the current employees. what is going on?
Our store began drastically cutting hours on Wednesday. Associates are being called and asking them to take off. I know a full time associate who was asked to take off Thursday-Saturday. We have had hours cut in the past, but never this urgently or... — read more

Why hasn’t belk found a new CEO? Don is still the “acting” ceo. What’s taking so long? Nobody wants that job?
Rumor has it that don Hendricks is Allegedly set to join Lisa at Torrid later this year. Don And Lisa are proven leaders with a track record of success.
some clown named hyon park jumps sinking belk ship to join lisa at torrid.
Anyone wanna take a guess?
I understand the need for a new 1000 people because employees are still leaving in droves from Belk. But financially, it doesn't make much sense to me. My estimate is that almost none of those 1000 employees will stay here for a long time. Isn't... — read more
Our store has managers who appear to be doing fulfillment but they find a very few number of items. They are always walking around led with their scanner, but their biggie always is empty. Does anyone know if managers are allowed to “pretend” they... — read more
I say all employees band together and do a sick out on a Saturday. Our safety matters, work life balance matters appreciation matters and not a $4 lunch. Having 25-30 employees and 7 do all the work and nothing is said to the rest. I am just over it!... — read more
At Belk we don’t pay you to think. We pay you to cheat and lie to get credits and monies from customers and associates! Honesty we can fake that don’t you think!
Has anyone been concerned that stores are down in sales exponentially, some stores down as much as 50%. However, upper management has been instructed to gloss over this issue. They still want the focus on email, credit, customer satisfaction, and fly... — read more
