Thread regarding Belk layoffs


Interesting you go on LINKDIN and see fantastic posts trend , vendor , or fashion statement . I also see many post of high potential development and how the senior management of Belk is promoting young talent . Everyone is excited and giving high fives and congratulating each other on these amazing things going on at BELK.
You visit the store and the fitting rooms and registers are closed in 80% of the store . Long lines to checkout or get into fitting rooms . I saw literally 6 racks of Go backs in the Crown and ivy department in a top 5 door in the company today . The associates at the registers complaining about wanting to go home and the upcoming inventory schedule of 3 days of 3AM to 11AM and then back to normal schedule the rest of the week .
Management turnover ( RVP, SM, and ASM ) and employee Turnover is extremely high above the industry average . Wages are low ( relative to industry average ) and the replacement management that are being promoted at a much lower pay scale then the prior manager ( can you say cost saving ) .
Final all the post about successful events when the store trends are below comps and again the industry .
To summarize what you see on social media in not the reality of BELK . The posts on social media are sound bites of success but in reality the big picture paints a lot of disfunction . Do not be fooled the place is a HOUSE of CARDS . The alliance with CONNs will not save the sinking ship but likely to take the life boat with it .

Belk will collapse like a House of Cards. Please God helps us now why are you making us wait and suffer all these insanity, greedy and ugliness from Belk?

Yes this is all true. Belk is the worst place to work. Employees that worked there for years are treated like shut. The schedules were a nightmare. The store was always a mess bathrooms filthy all the time. You only got a decent raise if you were a favorite or related to someone. Always talked to like you were in kindergarten. Worked there for 13 years. Stupid me. Worst job ever. Believe what you hear because it's Truth.
