    Really strange place to try to work. Upper Managment is ALL about who they like the best at the moment.

    Pros

    It was a great place to work - it is now like a different company since they have consolodated. Good discount.

    Cons

    All about fear and intimidation. The rules change and nobody tells you. You are terrified to miss an email - so you check it even on your time off and vacations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your managers - busy work and "moving things to move them" is not the answer. Too many old May company Manager mentality - guess what - they are out of business.

    Pros

    People that have been there forever and know nothing else, the usual company folk
    may be happy, the few that still exist.

    Cons

    They hire parttime, give new people the hours noone else wants, such as sales when they open at 5am, or stay open until midnight. Then, when it suits them, they will cut your hours to 5 hours a week, and if you have insurance thru them, you end up owing on that. They harrass their employees to get credit applications, that is all they care about. Your bonus is $1 per application. They expect 3 apps a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lets see if Belk can survive the recession
