    I have been working at Belk part-time

    Pros

    You can work A LOT of hours if you want.

    Cons

    The credit application PUSH for employees is a pain and discouraging. $3.00 for each application isn't all that exciting.

    Advice to Management

    In a small town if someone is a Belk customer they already have a card and they are repeat customers. We cannot conjure up new applicants from thin air. Sometimes we get lucky but a lot of time we get told store credit cards are BAD and people would rather use their Visa or Mastercard. Offer more PERKS to card holders make the card more desirable if we must SELL it to customers give it something other cards can't compete with.

    I have been working at Belk full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The corporate office has been updated to include a gym, updated cafe and coffee bar. So that's nice.

    Cons

    There are absolutely no processes put in place in the eCommerce Dept. VP's bark and scream orders at people and don't listen to any of the teams suggestions or ideas. They've eliminated so many positions but haven't planned for how any of those tasks will now be handled. Employees are overworked without as much as a thank you.

    Advice to Management

    You hire Subject Matter Experts so they can give you their educated opinions, not for you to tell them what to do. Get your act together. You are losing quality employees because of this chaotic culture you've created.

    I worked at Belk part-time

    Pros

    I learned a lot of useful information about retail work and the different attributes it takes to help make a store run successfully.

    Cons

    Unloading the truck each week. You get a truck or two each week full of new merchandise which has to be unloaded, unpackaged , and stocked on the sales floor for customers to see the new merchandise or products.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your employees a little bit more about lifting heavy objects the right way. Maybe it would help avoid future injuries of new employees , who have no idea what they are doing, and have never had a job in their entire life.
