I have been working at Belk full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The company thrives on Diversity. They may not realize it but they do.
The potential of the company is unreal.
Loyal Friendly Associates, again, they may not realize it but they do.

Cons

Sadly they don't realize that employees that work hard, exceed goals, and are loyal are an asset. Technology sucks, old systems and registers, and equipment make the job slow.
Issues with upper Management, I agree with most of the comments on this site.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Action. Relentless Customer Care is taught, yet Relentless Associate Care is not important. A happy associate makes for a much more happy customer. It's called the trickle down affect. And customers Realize it. When the store has a good manager, the store does well, when it has a bad one, It doesn't. Take Note. Its sad when you have employees willing to lead and help but upper management is too worried about their own job on the line to save the entire store from failing. Its Insulting when a manager is hired while someone there has the experience and meets and exceeds goals is skipped over. Bringing in outside management when capable employees who already have a rapport with the team are there and willing to work. Its Great opportunities if one is willing to put up with managements lack of care for employees.

    I have been working at Belk

    Pros

    I have met some really interesting people, and some good connections to get out of Belk.

    Cons

    Not enough help, management is petty, associates are even pettier, unrealistic expectation of daily maintenance, no real bonus structure for anyone under store manager level. There is no tuition reimbursement program, HR doesn't take complaints seriously, extremely high rate of turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps having a "recovery crew" might help. Listen to your associates, and come into the 21st century in terms of your technology.
