    I worked at Bealls part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The 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

    Cons

    don'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 ManagementAdvice

    try offering incentives like raises or job advancement possibilities

    I have been working at Bealls part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fellow employees were great and the customers are wonderful.

    Cons

    Compensation 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PAY A LIVABLE WAGE TO YOUR EMPLOYEES!

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people I worked with.

    Cons

    It 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 ManagementAdvice

    Look to actual department stores for proper business model and working operations.

    I have been working at Bealls full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stable 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.

    Cons

    Pressure 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 ManagementAdvice

    Replace 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..............

    Pros

    I'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.

    Cons

    Low pay, sometimes understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep positive reinforcement to inspire workers to improve their performance

    I worked at Bealls full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Reasonable job expectations, flexible schedules and great discounts.

    Cons

    Below average pay at both FT and PT levels. Corporate seems to be detached from the stores in terms of what the day-to-day business really looks like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct unannounced visits to get a clearer picture of what goes on. When visits are announce you give the RD's time to bring in an army of labor to clean up, fix up and fluff the stores.
