    An OK place to work part time

    Sales Associate (Former Employee) Boynton Beach, FL

    ProsThe store is filled with a calm atmosphere, co-workers and management were helpful and positive most of the time, really flexible with the days you can and cant work, really good place to get job experience

    Consdon't expect to get a raise working in this company, not the slightest hint of possible job advancement, amount of hours you get each week are based on seasons

    Advice to Senior Managementtry offering incentives like raises or job advancement possibilities

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Low pay and no appreciation of employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Daytona Beach, FL

    ProsFellow employees were great and the customers are wonderful.

    ConsCompensation is $8 hr! Doesn't matter how hard you work, how many letters of recommendation you get from customers, or how good your work ethic is. They do not reward their hardworking employees, so they have high turnover. If you shop at Bealls and have bad service, well, the company is getting what they're paying for.

    unrealistic expectations

    Area Manager (Former Employee) Port St Lucie, FL

    ProsI enjoyed the people I worked with.

    ConsIt was like a child dressing up in their parents clothes. the company expected tooth and nail work for hardly no compensation. It was hard to take the work seriously.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook to actual department stores for proper business model and working operations.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    New Name: STRESS Department Stores!!!!!!!!

    Management (Current Employee) South Florida, FL

    ProsStable financially, still family owned, small regional based, could still be a player in the clothing retail market providing the leadership changes and the company gets back to it's core values.

    ConsPressure cooker, meet goals, meet deadlines, slash payroll, it is win for the Regional Corporate Teams at all costs! If you like like rowing a boat with a 1/2 an oar, and want your Blood Pressure to go thru the roof, then this is the place for you!

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace yourselves with individuals who care and are loyal to what was a very, very, outstanding company instead of those who are here for the job and then move on after they have screwed up the place..............

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great People, Nice Atmosphere

    Sales Associate (Current Employee) Melbourne, FL

    ProsI'm sure this varies between stores, but the people I worked with in the Melbourne store are awesome. It helps when you are surrounding by people you love. The hours are good if you're willing to put in the extra effort, help and stay past your scheduled time (if allowed) The management is awesome, very personable people that communicate well. Good flexible schedule. Option to take full hour break or cut it short if desired.

    ConsLow pay, sometimes understaffed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep positive reinforcement to inspire workers to improve their performance

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
