    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Belk.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed on my lunch hour, HR was very professional and made interview seem more like a get to know one another time than an actual business interview. This was 19 years ago and things have changed in company since then, it was more personal and more of a caring atmosphere and not so much about numbers as it is today under the new CEO.

    Offered a good salary and a good job but this was 19 years ago when it was a total different company, Today the company is more about money than the actually caring about the associate.

    Director In IT Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Belk.

    Interview Details

    The process itself was fast and professional. Phone interview a couple of in person sessions where I met with other directors, VPs and C-Levels. HR was a pleasure to deal with, very professional, good communication. While clearly the IT staff has been upgraded there are still some relics from the old days who are completely out of touch. Based on their questions and attitudes they aren’t current with today’s strategies and technologies, and don’t like the changes in this department. Sadly I got very different views of the job from the more recent hires than the long term employees which says this isn’t one team. Also Belk clearly hires for ‘skills’ in a specific role rather than hiring for character, I doubt they are capable of real career development even with their executives. At the end of two days of interviewing, It was very clear to me this wasn't the right company for me.

    Interview Questions
    • None, they asked the same boring questions, what are your strong points, what are you weak points. Then a lot of questions on what technologies and methodologies I have experience in but none on successful or failed projects. Not one person asked me where I wanted to be in 5-10 years in my career which I think is an important question but almost everyone asked me why I wanted to work there, (and not in a good way). One executive just asked who we might know in common so he could ask them about me???   View Answer

    I don't even remember when I applied. I had just been applying to any and everywhere. When I received the call I was already working so it much have taken 1 or 2 months for them to call me after I applied. They called me in for an interview and hired me that same day. I went through the 2-3 day training for pt seasonal sales associate and was out on the floor by day 4.

    Commission Shoe Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Belk.

    Interview Details

    Very involved. Multiple steps. On-line portion very sketchy because of the unreliability of the IT system. It was necessary to resubmit information multiple times to be acknowledged. Actual face-to-face interview was lightweight and the simplest part of the process. I think by then they already know whether or not you're in.

    Interview Questions
    • There really wasn't anything difficult except for the process itself, which was exhaustive and lengthy.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. The offer was take it or leave it. I had been unemployed for five months, so taking the position was a no-brainer.
