Topics regarding layoffs at Belk
“Treat employees like they make a difference. And the will.”
We need to start a Belk Gofund me page only for hourly sales associates , Belk has been stricken with the SycamoreVirus out of New York and cannot pay its employees.
In order to be open thanksgiving, Belk needs merchandise, if stores are empty by October or early November then we now this is the end
For goodness sake, if full time is only 28 hours I would see that as Belk nearing the end of its life as a department store
Our employee hours are still cut. Full timers are averaging 28 hours or less per week. Most part timers that were called back are getting zero. Schedules are altered after being made with hours cut. Sometimes we are called the morning of and asked... — read more
I have been furloughed since March and I got called back today and I start tomorrow. I have been sad reading here and I wanted you all to know this is 100% legit!
I’ve read these complaints, they all have validity. You can’t make this stuff up.
Sears had the same email policy and they are doing great!
If email capture is so important, why not have a kiosk at the front of the store where a customer can enter their email or phone number themselves if the wish to? Why does it keep asking for the same email over and over for the same customers?
The person who said they feel it’s just a “few” employees who write negatively on this page should just go on the Facebook page and read all the negative comments from customers, that’s a REAL eye opener!!!! And these are just customers who order a... — read more
Store is a mess. Everything is on sale. Only one or two associates on the floor. This is not a good sign.
Right before a company is about to go under they tell the employees “if you don’t like it then quit”, No company that is doing well would tell an employee that, only a company that is about to fold and has nothing to loose would say that... — read more
Are they putting furloughs back to work ?
Are they asking the furloughed associates to come back to work or are they laying them off or dismissing them ?
Are they having conservations with furloughed associates? I heard they were supposed to start calling soon.
can you sue belk for creating a toxic, unsafe (not practicing social distancing) and in some stores dangerous work environment ? If so, we should form a class action lawsuit
Macy’s, Khols, Dillard’s, Stein Mart all have a larger staff than Belk, we are still operating on 13 associates and two managers a day.
if belk cuts holiday pay for thanksgiving and keeps the store open, all associates and managers MUST protest, call out sick, stage a walk out, do something!!!!!! Don’t let these greedy b–tards take time away from your family!!
So, a very good source said even though all this mess, cutting pay, store hours, etc.. Lisa Harper will get a bonus of over $500,000... wtf?
our store managers spend $119 on lunch today on Belk’s store credit card, how is this allowed?
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.
Just checking in on you mother harper, we haven't heard a peep from you, have you lost the ability to communicate?
%As of July 2020, Men’s Wearhouse, apparel and home retailer Lands’ End, retail group Premier Brands, and Belk, the department store chain, all received a Moody’s rating lower than B3, which suggests they are at high risk of bankruptcy." There you... — read more
Lin-Foo-Yin said that 5000 years ago.
“People lie when they have a personal stake in not telling you the truth”
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.
It's Third Quarter. Almost everyone one of the companies on Moody's list for high risk of bankruptcy by the end of the year have now filed for bankruptcy. Except Belk. How is it still hanging on? It will have to file soon, perhaps this month. ... — read more
For those if us still on furlough our unemployment ends soon. Is the company going to extend unemployment ?
Our store is changing hours to 10-7 this week. Employee hour cuts are still in effect. We have long lines, angry customers, stressed associates, and no AC. Belk is practically giving away the store with all the discounts. The store is a wreck... — read more
We are attracting the worst customer base in retail, low budget customers who think they are owed everything, very demanding but they have no money to spend. the worst of the worst.
we Just lost two STM’s, one last week and one this week, no two week notice. This is bad!!
Our Store has no a/c. Help! It was 80 degrees
I'm curious as to when fitting rooms will be opened. If they are opened will staffing increase to handle the extra sanitizing, etc.,.?
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
