Every associate in our store had to sign the new Time Off procedure but I am curious if it will apply to management? Our store manager and several ASM/Leads are off most weekends/nights while many associate's requests are consistently denied with no... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Belk
If anyone's interested Tom was in our store and said we will not be going forward with chanel or coty fragrance.im sure everyone else will be following shortly
Does anyone else have a feeling that they are dealing with completely side issues instead of tackling things that really matter if they are going to save this company? Oh yes, I almost forgot, they don't have much will to save at least what can be... — read more
What I resent about this company is that employees are very little informed about things that could be very important to them. Someone here said that we are always the last to find out important information and I totally agree. OK, it's already... — read more
Why the h–l are we setting a 1 day sale with no help!! Online you push a few buttons but in the store it is not that easy. Plus it needs to be done by 10! The stuff is higher today with the extra 5 percent off! The customer will notice but that is... — read more
I’m so glad I can leave belk. TJ Maxx is aware that Belk is facing problems and they welcome former Belk employees and managers with open arms (atleast they did with me), I’ve noticed when another company encourages you to start immediately without... — read more
nobody has mentioned on here that if an associate or manager quits they are not being replaced, another red flag this bus is gonna crash.
I've been an STM since 2013 and have noticed that store managers have less accountability and more free rein to do what they want than in the past. Our store manager can work shorter shifts than the sales associates and nothing ever seems to happen... — read more
Someone said all the unnecessary floor moves, ect...Is like rearranging deck chairs on the titanic and that’s exactly what they are doing. This is not a sustainable business model. Our store is a mess but not making any of their numbers. everything... — read more
i'm heartbroken at what has become of Belk. why in the world are they destroying the company like this?
We have a Corporate visit coming soon and Managers are having us ‘spread out’ what little stock we have in our case lines. I’m actually trying to find decorative empty boxes to be space fillers in the cases and back drops. We haven’t had anything... — read more
Belk corporate, did it ever occur to you, these associates are the ones, you solely depend on, where would you be without them?
Customers seem completely different to me and are certainly much less numerous than they were before. Some have absolutely no empathy so it is not possible to give them the best possible service they want because there are simply not enough of us... — read more
Some people speculate that we might hear the news of company’s liquidation very soon. I don’t have any more reliable insights, I’ve only heard speculations that it might happen. Any thoughts?
I don't need any information about the company's business or some insider news to know that this is coming to an end. The situation in my store is so bad that everything has become visibly clear. I wish I got laid off earlier so I don't have to watch... — read more
What keeps you here?
As I’m sitting here on my lunch break, I keep thinking about how nice it would be to just leave and never come back. A weight lifted off my shoulders. As of today, one associate quit after her shift on Saturday, another’s last day was Sunday, and 3... — read more
With this sudden change in staffing, and store operations, its obvious that Belk is near the end. No staff, closeout merchandise from Ross, A total shift in customer base, it's a wrap guys..
People don't quit a job, they quit a boss. This is the way it is in most cases. I worked here for many years, the job was hard but I accepted it and adjusted. However, after I got a new manager, I don’t want to stay here anymore. He’s the biggest... — read more
My RVP Candidly tells me this centralization of registers, streamlining of merchandise, and downsizing of employee coverage is Belk’s “last ditch effort” to save a failing business. If this does not work and profitability contributes to decline... — read more
Belk is not mid-range anymore, it’s now exclusively for the budget/clearance shopper. they also expect high end service when spending $7 on a tshirt. One customer demanded we steam her $8 Kim Rodgers blouse because it was wrinkled.
news must be getting around the mall that belk is in trouble because Multiple store managers from other stores have come into belk trying to recruit us. Dillard’s manager told me I can start tomorrow at Dillard’s if I wanted to. She said belk is... — read more
Don Hendricks is visiting stores this month and next month. Supposedly he wants his visits to be under 30 minutes so management cannot ask him questions, he also has assistants surrounding him so people can’t approach him, kind of like Kim... — read more

Anyone else hearing this? With centralized registers and low staffing levels. Everyone from store managers to sales associates will be getting the axe. Small doors are down to one register at some locations.
here's my own slogon ( charming elegant style belk ) but you can make up whatever you want silly or straightforward.
If you work at belk....tell me the products they sell are cheap, WITHOUT telling me the products they sell are cheap 🤣
“No I in team” is a philosophy invented by bad managers. When they don’t care that one person works and five don’t as long as job’s done. If that one dares to question what the heck is that, he gets “No I in team” or gets shamed as a “not a team... — read more
All over $15/hr....Make the switch today !!!
My 20 year old daughter worked at Belk from August 2019-March 2020 (when closed for covid) and was payed incorrectly multiple times during her time there. They would always have an excuse as to why her pay was incorrect, often blaming her for time... — read more
We recently got a new store manager last month who is only 24 and clueless. OMG!!
Cost cutting to this level is not normal, sure companies (retail and other types) must be cautious with money in these times, but what Belk is doing is not normal. plus at Belk all the money theY save by not paying employee raises, vendors etc...goes... — read more
After I left Belk, unfortunately I came to a company that is not much better. Absolutely all the same problems. I didn’t accomplish anything other than going through the stress of adapting to a new environment. I would love to go back to my old... — read more
it’s funny how at every other company on the planet, the more you sell the more successful you are, not at Belk they gave a cheap lunch and dollar store gift bags to the “best of belk” employees who coincidentally happened to be mostly new hires or... — read more
I know this is a long shot that the belk family would want to spend money on a declining industry. but when private equty firm Thomas H. Lee Partners (THL) a private equity firm based in Boston purchased art van furniture and levin furniture using... — read more
The problems at Belk (as of April 1, 2021) are EXACTLY the SAME issues that Toys R Us and SEARS had before they went under. They also tried to use a smoke and mirrors technique to gaslight employees and gullible store level management into thinking... — read more
Do y'all think the proposed 2% raises will actually happen? I have serious doubts with this company. It seems like a tactic to keep people from quitting. I haven't seen any pay increase in 2 years so they've left me very pessimistic regarding Belk.
