    Pros

    A great company who cares about its employees and encourages success. They offered competitive benefits and pay. Leadership had a good vision and outlook on the retail environment.

    Cons

    More clarity around career advancement, as well as overall communications to its employees. Overall, working for a company like Belk was a great experience and allowed me to grow professionally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees engaged, and listen to them. They are the eyes and ears of the company, and will give you insights that may not have previously been apparent.

    Pros

    The double discount days, the twenty percent employee discount. Being able to put the extra coupons toward your purchases.

    Cons

    The cons of working here include a Change of work schedule without proper notice. You can be taken off or put on the schedule without knowing and you show up to work when you don't have to. Our you get in trouble because you didn't show up for a shift when you didn't even know you had to work in the first place.

    Advice to Management

    Give hours to associates and promote from within. Instead of hiring people from outside and not giving others who work hard the opportunity to make more money. Apprecate and be more personal with employees, after all they keep your store running properly. Do more as upper management instead of always watching the employees work and not being seen or available to aid in giving proper customer service to consumers.

    Pros

    Good insurance, wide variety of people, very diverse workplace

    Cons

    There is a serious disconnect between Upper management and store level employees. Also, if you get injured, they will immediately begin a campaign to ruin your reputation, slander your professional name, and attempt to deny coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your store employees. Show concern when someone is injured. Live up to your responsibilities.
