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 Management

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 worked at Belk full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good sales and employee double discount days make purchasing designer clothes at a great bargain. great fellow employees.

    Cons

    When I started working there the store manager was a great guy who was out on the floor working and getting to know his staff and was easy to communicate with and willing to listen to new ideas. Then the management changed and the current manager is very easy to find since he is always in his office. Usually with the one male STM who is his minion. Miss my friends but do not miss the insane hours, (either too much or too little) the constant credit push and absent management and unrealistic goals.

    Advice to Management

    HR Corporate - are you sleep deprived? Who comes up with this insanity of pay raises? In order to get a raise you have to do 125% better than the year before. Not 100% - NO that's not good enough - 125%. Seriously? If sales associates were allowed to sell instead of setting sales, putting out merchandise, cleaning, doing go backs and pushing for credit, that 125% MIGHT be obtainable. Also, get rid of the 'two year rule' of keeping managers in one location. Attitude reflects management. Pay SEASONED female management the same as newcomer male management. There truly is a glass ceiling at Belk.
