    I worked at Bealls

    Pros

    Love the people and the atmosphere! many of the employees have been there for a very long time and it doesn't take long to figure out why. There are goals to meet but they are reasonable.

    Cons

    Low pay. But for me it was a trade for being able to keep my sanity and not have a lot of stress. the work life balance is great also, so the low wages seemed a trade off for that as well.

    Pros

    Generally nice people to work with. Company is growing, and just launched an ecommerce site.

    Cons

    Pay seems below industry standards. Promotional opportunities are often kept quiet and only offered to preferred candidates, or quietly marketed outside the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase salaries to either encourage current employees to stay, or attract higher caliber outside candidates.

    I worked at Bealls part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great team work and schedule. They work around school etc etc. Holidays arent that bad but you need to be prepared to work overtime if needed.

    Cons

    pay was pretty bad and the dress code needed to be more inforced. The upper mgmt need way better people skills, seems as if they hate coming to work everyday

    Pros

    It's a fast paced company to work for. It's a job with constant change & constant action. It requires an upbeat attitude, & smiles all around.

    Cons

    The hours can be very long. Weekends are a must for all managers. Schedules are very intense. Holiday hours are very rough.

    I worked at Bealls part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Upbeat, easy, focus on customer service, standard compensation for retail type job.

    Cons

    Limited advancement, management easily manipulated/bullied by certain employees. Basically, 20% of the people do 80% of the work. If you show initiative, others take credit and you get over looked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into what is going on with shift managers, department managers and who is actually DOING the work At closing, is everyone working or pressuring the few to SPEED UP so they can get home... not a team effort at all. I was always taught that we all have to pitch in to help others whether it is your job to do or not. I think that performance reviews should be done at each level and that floor personnel should rate their supervisors. Just a suggestion.

    I have been working at Bealls full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company is focused on providing a warm and inviting environment for both internal and external customers. The company has been going through an evolution both with product, operations and talent. The key drivers are now focused around talent and developing the talent within to become exceptional. The company, 100 years old, prides itself on internal promotions and finding positions that best suit the associate's competency base.

    Cons

    Could look at a better 401k package but other than that the company is a wonderful company to work for

    Pros

    Flexible with your schedule, you receive benefits like holiday pay after working for a year. You do learn to be patient and build great customer service and sales skills. This skills are great to have to keep growing in your future career.

    Cons

    No opportunity to grow. Very Very stressful because they never schedule enough staff when they are busy. One person has to do so much work by themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please schedule more people. It will make the job so much less stressful.
