Belk is a mirror image of Toys R Us

Before Toys R Us went bust, it was operated the same as belk. Managers had pay cuts, stock was low, and they were telling everyone that nothing was wrong. I worked there for 5 yrs.

There are those that drink the Belk Kool-Aid and those that don't. It is wise to know what's in the Kool-Aid before you drink it.

Fitting Rooms

I'm curious as to when fitting rooms will be opened. If they are opened will staffing increase to handle the extra sanitizing, etc.,.?

You really think things are different?

As a retired store manager/regional pre and post partner consolidation days I can say that it apparently appears not much has changed. Still the same neglected stores, unappreciated associates and management running like rats to hide the truths... —  read more

So ft nonmanagerial employees only get 28 or 27 hours for next week🤯🤯. Can we file unemployment for the decrease or not? This is insane


The only thing that hasn’t changed is the name

Anyone that worked for Belk before Sycamore knows something is terribly wrong. The only thing that has not changed is the name, I’m sure that will happen eventually if the company doesn’t fold first.

i left belk for dillard's in 2016

dillards has an almost full staff, about 70 people in our store, and we have four LP associates plus two LP managers, full time get 39 hours, part time varies. Our stores are open 11-7, sounds like Belk is running on a skeleton crew to lower cost.

Part time employees

Many part time employees have not been called back to work but their employee discount still is in effect so are these part timers still employed with Belk even though no one has called them or sent them a final letter ?

Belk’s changing hours again

Sunday open 3pm-9:12pm Monday 11am-3pm, then 3:45pm to 11:22pm Tuesday 4:13am to 8:01am Weds 6:55pm to 1:11 am Thurs 7;45 am to 8:15am Friday closed for covid 19 cleaning Saturday. Open. 24 hours with DJ and gogo dancing after 9pm Sunday... —  read more
