if you look at Dillards, Macys, JC Penney, Nordstrom, even Target...how does Belk compare?
Topics regarding layoffs at Belk
You have us watch watch cultural, disability, harrasment, racism, prejudice courses/ videos. Yet, Belk does not treat their long time, elderly, disabled employees right. I've seen younger employees with a brace/ cast, seniors on a cane stand all... — read more
I can’t possibly agree with some people here who claim that Belk still has some potential. Don't get me wrong, I would love that to be true, however my question is, what is that potential? How come I don't notice it? A company that does not know how... — read more
today i believe fashion is classless dull and plain its over priced and does not last the passage of time some might say its just belk i say its nearly all once great stores we are in a place in time where charmming beauty and grace are nearly over... — read more
Originally we were supposed to have Lancome till November. Now we are told to RTV this week already. Thoughts on the rush?
Just curious how many folks would leave if they could. I would but my family situation is complicated and I need to stay here...
Here is a humdinger for ya....our RVP instructed us to cut hours of existing employees and hire new ones at a job fair on 6/12
How can moving all the registers to a central location save money? Could someone please explain this to me cause my managers can't.
amazing competitive wage.. after taxes the average part time employee makes a competitive $77 per week. The full timers bring home $230 a week. How can you resist a payday like this?
"Love fashion, home and beauty? Join us for a store hiring event on June 12! Full and part time positions are available in all stores, and we are proud to offer flexible schedules, competitive pay and an associate discount. " ROFLOA! Wow...this... — read more
Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm an STM at a smaller store in Mississippi. Is this allowed? This sends a mixed message to my associates.
Look at what they changed their fb, cover photo too,, and the most disrespectful thing it was on Memorial Day!! What about our veterans?? Why wasn’t something about that posted?? Do we forget what day it was?? Well we know what time it is for... — read more
Sometimes I just notice brands that we no longer carry, or just see the old display model laying about, and wonder if they’ve pulled out, or if we just haven’t gotten any new stock (in ages, lol). So what’s the full list? Not counting... — read more
I feel it before and during every single shift. Once I’m done I try to find different ways to decompress. I’ll take my dog for a walk, meditate, anything to get the cr-p out of my system. Sometimes it works - but most times it doesn’t. How does... — read more
i also have a senior sales clerk named mrs. slocombe in cosmetics along with Miss Brahms i wish we still had real professionals like Mr. Grainger and Mr. Humphries working the mens dept but they all retired when Young Mr Grace died but i do hope with... — read more
We can finally accept debit cards as a form of payment when paying a Belk card account. I remember when we couldn't split payment using a third party cc even for purchases.
Think of how much we would save if we got rid of the layers of management that are nothing but a burden. While we are closing stores and downsizing you won’t see upper management scaling down to fit the needs of the company. Any time cost cutting... — read more

I recently saw that #552 in Greenville was hiring for an 'AP Lead' despite there already being an APM in place when I left in February. Is AP undergoing restructuring in other stores or is it simply a title change?
I find it funny that some colleagues try to look busy when the manager is around, and as soon as he is not there, they slack off to the maximum. Sometimes I think that I should also use this tactic because while I give my best all the time and in... — read more
I was relieved when SM who enjoyed belittling some of us went somewhere else. It was like a holiday. Only now do I see how much his behavior has affected the quality of our work. Before I didn’t have the will to work at all, in fact I barely worked... — read more
dillards hired me on last week. $16.50 per hr. much more than belk. same rules pretty much about sales, credit, and being late, ect...much better custmer base. not the "$2" customer with a bad attitude and no money to spend.
No stock in beauty/cosmetics is a sign the company is getting ready to fold. There are no other logical explanations for this. Also when big names such as Ralph Lauren, Chanel, Nautica, and Under Armor pull out that is the icing on a sh*t cake.
Can someone post the layers of managers from Store Manager all the way up to CEO, im just curious to see how many they have.
Multiple bosses who delight in pushing the work down three/four layers to us workers who are doing three people’s job to the point where none of our jobs even resemble what we signed up for. Get rid of the multiple management layers hire a few more... — read more
How many times have you witnessed that the same rules do not apply to everyone at Belk? For something that a regular employee would normally get punished for, others simply get away with it. I hate such double standards. Those who get the worse end... — read more
what i have read on here with some of the comments on only receiving private lable merchandise makes me wonder are they attempting to clear merchandise that no other company would what to buy like tjmaxx burlington ect products that are tied by name... — read more
“Beauty advisors”- what’s going on in your store? Are you about ready to pull your hair out too? We have 2 people working during the week. One opens and one closes so there’s very little overlap. Majority of returns get sent to cosmetics dept. Having... — read more
It's a shame Belk, and managers measure an associates worth, by a customer's willingness to give their personal data to Belk and third parties. How is obtaining emails, and selling a 29% interest rate credit card, considered quality customer... — read more
There is no point in complaining and wondering why some department is out of stock on something, why L’Oreal and other brands are pulling out of Belk... The inevitability is that Belk will sink and the only thing to think about is how to get out of... — read more
Lowe’s had a career fair a week ago, and guess what?! Myself and two other of my coworkers got hired! I’m left my “Lead” position, and getting hired at Lowe’s starting at $18! Also interviewed at Tj Maxx, got offered $16. A dollar more than Belk, but... — read more
Literally this place IS THE WORST. Our store manager sucks so bad and is also never there LOL! We never have stock in, and I’ve been written up twice because I’ve been late too many times. Why do these as-----s care if I’m late? I’m there LOL! I’m... — read more
Hey friends. So I seriously cannot take this place anymore. The store manager comes and goes as she pleases, is gone at least 3 days a week because she calls off, and literally sucks. The store manager even TEXTED a family member of mine who USED to... — read more
Why does Belk always, ALWAYS punishes its best employees who work hard and who are the responsible ones by pushing us under the bus, be it with customers or by laying us off? Yet workers who are lazy, gossipy, and rude with customers and the rest of... — read more
Without naming your location, rate your store from 1 (being the worst) to 10 (being the best) and why. I’ll start first. I'd rate my location as a 6. We seem to be way more unorganized after the layoffs that happened last year. We let go of... — read more
Well I got fired today for being late or calling out due to my cancer and aging parents........wow! Just WOW!
Despite everything, I try not to become a completely bitter employee and maintain a positive attitude. Every day I try to find some motivation to work, so as not to fall into complete depression. However, it is very difficult when you see that many... — read more
