    I have been working at Belk full-time

    Pros

    Technically part time, but have been working full time hours since I was hired. I love belk! The location I work for has a MAC counter and a few times out of the year they serve you breakfast before the store opens and you get to try out new products! Part time has the option to sign up for vision and dental insurance, and full time qualifies for that plus health. 20 percent discount, and 40 on a double discount day.

    Cons

    Salary doesn't reflect the work, IE low pay for hard workers

    I worked at Belk full-time

    Pros

    Solid discount, co-workers were decent, and there's a gym.

    Cons

    Since the acquisition Belk has steadily been getting worse culturally and you can't trust senior managements word..

     It's a very uncertain environment to work in. Definitely would stay away from most areas of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your word or you will continue to erode trust.

    I worked at Belk full-time

    Pros

    Discount
    Double discount days
    Benefits
    Gratis
    10 am report time

    Cons

    Management
    Credits
    Holiday hours
    Competitive
    Inconsistent schedule

    Advice to Management

    4 credits a week at a Clinique counter. Most customers are buying less than 50 dollars worth in a rich area and aren't going to take out credit. Embarrassing your employees won't make them try harder to get these credits.

    If your full time it takes up most of your life and you don't get as much free time because you don't get a set schedule
