Belk associates are underpaid and unappreciated

you wear many different hats therefore learn a lot

Consthey expect far too much from their employees. helping customers, putting away stock, price changes, merchandising, setting sales, and associates are pay for performance. If you stand behind the register and do nothing else you get pay increases. If you do all of the other necessary work but don't have a high sph they actually take money away from you at review time. most employees working there on average of 5 years are actually being paid less now than they were then. $8 or $9 an hour when their starting rate was 11. I have never seen any retail company expect so much from their employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to reacess your pay scale. it is archaic.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
