    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 have been working at Bealls full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great training, awesome peers.

    Cons

    Low pay, no real advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Need to address pay concerns, insurance goes up every year more than standard raises so in effect I'm making less money every year.

    I have been working at Bealls full-time

    Pros

    I have a job and that's it.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Poor raises. Management is mean. No advancement opportunity for Americans. Not many people speak English. Poor morale.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to good workers. Enforce the rules in handbook about speaking English. Remember that we have a high cost of living and offer raises that match. A nickel or dime an hour doesn't help. We are humans too.

    Work life balance is amazing!

    Cons

    Poor leadership, leads with fear. Managers are poorly trained to be the best fit managers. Demographic tends to lean towards an older demographic. The culture is stiff and there is a lack of “fun”

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

    Pros

    Collegial atmosphere, nice work environment, generally helpful and caring management.

    Cons

    There is no formal training for new hires! This translates to an inefficient staff and inconsistent experience for Guests. My store is run on a skeleton crew, so it is difficult for Guests to get help on the floor. There is no obvious career path for sales associates and the starting pay is about 25% less than other nearby retailers, which probably accounts for a higher turnover than they would experience otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adding even a half day of training for new hires - it would make a huge difference for Guests and staff alike.
