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 of the deal are most often those who are here only for work, while those who work the least while making connections and doing their brown nosing can get away with pretty much anything here.

When I left Belk our store manager was working a "part time" job or so she said which caused her to leave at 5pm everyday and not work weekends. she also would spend HOURS in her office with the door closed, turns out she would be on "plenty o fish" because another associate baited her and made a fake profile to talk to her. She quit shortly after we called her out.
AD, reported grievances are documented and likely part of your employee file in store. If verbal conversation, ask for documented notes. Also, follow up with manager at any level you’re meeting with, especially if you’re not seeing measurable differences as a result from conversation. Email would be preferred method.
Well, shockingly I voiced my opinion about favoritism and managers having "pets" in the stores and was told "don't let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya" so whoever wrote the last response is full or sh*t.
Alfred Dunner, manager’s behavior would be monitored by his/her RVP. If no one is reporting discrepancies, there is no disciplinary case. If you are witnessing anything other than adherence to policy, it is up to you to protect yourself. First, take care of yourself and follow policy. Document discrepancies if you’ve felt you’ve been treated differently than others. Be sure to include dates, time, etc.. All of this is important, otherwise those in power to make the change you’re concerned about can do nothing. Be a part of the solution if you’re concerned or feel shortchanged. Don’t sit idle and voice on this platform.
We witness the double standard all the time with the manager's "brown noses" and "pets".
I doubt corporate monitors managers behavior, and reported incidents can be easily intercepted, and changed.
In Ga, you can be easily fired for anything. It's your word against managers, and if they cover for each other, oh well.
Do your job to the best of your ability. Show that you are competitive and a winner. Make your goals. Companies want people that are willing to put in the effort.
To the person who wrote that last reply: Stop drinking the Koolaid!! Off course there are double standards. Happens with management too. If you are well liked or part of the in group, you’re not held to the same standard of accountability.
No such thing as “regular” employee. We are all employees of Belk and guided by policy. Take care of yourself and make sure you’re adhering to policy and avoid repercussions. Anything further, schedule a meeting with your store HR Mgr., or SM. Be front and forward with your documentation of discrepancies. Excel line is also available to all employees.
