    I worked at Bealls part-time

    Pros

    Bealls looks out for its employees rather it’s from the hours or the benefits. I have worked with individuals that have wanted to leave but couldn’t because of the benefits

    Cons

    The pay is well but could be a little higher. Also when it is short staffed or busy they hesitate to bring in extra help making the work load heavier on those there. Work hard for a small pay

    I worked at Bealls part-time

    Pros

    The people I worked with were almost all fantastic. The hours are pretty good around the holidays.

    Cons

    They make you push credit pretty hard, even if you work in a dead store like I did.The management is pretty poor. The good managers are usually listened to less than the bad managers. The store manager who hired me was great at her job but she left because of the insane credit expectations, and then the store got saddled with a garbage person as a store manager and it doesn't appear that the upper management recognizes how terrible she is as a person.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote bad people, because then the good people will start leaving.

    I have been working at Bealls full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with; get to help customers

    Cons

    Not enough staff, too many special orders to fill, never enough time to clean up store at closing. Corporate pushes credit apps but also cut hours. Mgmt is stressed out making associates stressed.

    Advice to Management

    Let’s start with corporate - first get out from behind the desk and go see how things from our perspective. See how things really are. THEN work together to streamline some processes and eliminate others. Second, get back to buying merchandise customers will buy at a reasonable price. Some items are more expensive at our stores than at other stores.
    For those looking to get into management don’t go here! The climate is too negative and too demanding on employees.

    I have been working at Bealls part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have learned a lot about every facet of retail.

    Cons

    Ever-changing management, low pay, huge expectations, no leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees that work hard and smart by advancing them. Don't advance for company politics. If someone works full time hours, is on call, and fills in when needed advance them because they earned it. Inform associates of things that concern them. Let us hear about our VOG that you require us to push. Inform us of open positions. Meet with us, one on one and as a group once in a while.
