I loved working at this store.
Sales Clerk (Former Employee), Texarkana, TXJune 10, 2014
Pros: liked working there
Cons: couldn't quit ever get in sink with my store manager.
I loved working at this store. I liked the location, the environment and I had great co workers. On the down side. My hours kept getting cut back and back until I was cut out. I finally quit. The store has weak PR relations from it's main supervisor. I didn't really have many issues about the rest.

Basic Retail Environment - but horrible work life balance for Salaried Managers
Area Manager (Former Employee), Fort Myers, FLJune 5, 2014
Pros: employee discount, hard working managers
Cons: work life balance / the scheduling was really bad
For the most part Managers here were fun to work with and most were honest and hardworking.

Employees that I supervised were my number one asset at this job. Without them - this company would not be where it is today. The problem is (like most retail jobs) the bulk of their "backbone workers" are part-timers with not much benefits given to them so – more... as a Manager here you are constantly dealing with a lot of negative attitudes and competition from employees fighting for more hours, especially from workers with families and more responsibilities in their lives. The employees that were working here part-time and going to school still were the only satisfied workers here that I saw (the majority of the time).

The most satisfying part of this job for me was working with the customers and giving as much support to my employees as I could to make their jobs easier and run more smoothly. When my employees would thank me for my support - that was enough for me to know that I was making a difference here - bringing in more positive than negative through my skills and understanding.

As a salaried Manager here we were responsible for ALL store operations including the evaluations of all employees that worked under you. We would get very little help from our Store Managers in many of the store operations here and I feel that this was mainly due to the fact that their work load was overwhelming as well.

The worst thing about this job was the Schedule. Store Managers would never take into consideration your work life balance. You would be scheduled from 11am-9pm - but you would never get out at 9pm when closing down the store - if you were lucky you would be able to have everything wrapped up by 10pm in order to go home. Then they would schedule you to work the very next day at 7am-5pm. Plus not only were you working and scheduled to work well over 40 hours a week - you only got paid for 40 hours a week. So technically you really were not making the money you think you are if you take into consideration all the mandatory extra hours worked. Also you rarely ever had 2 days off in a row and weekends, holidays, etc....forget about it - I worked them all. I never had one holiday off working here other than Christmas Day of course because they are closed. I missed many family get togethers and functions working here at Bealls.

In all there were a lot of negatives at this job and 99% of them for me came from the Scheduling but I was always thankful for Bealls giving me this job and allowing me to learn many more skills needed to improve my career. For the most part the people here were fun to work with and I have many good memories with customers and employees that I worked with over the years here. So for that I am very thankful that Beallls is here and giving some people like myself a living wage in a Management position - even if that means you need to sacrifice a work life balance. – less

Merchandise Handler (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLMay 23, 2014
Pros: going to outside events
Great place to work. I worked there over 8 years. I learned so much about the company and it showed me how it all comes together. The management was decent and fair. My co-workers were awesome and are still like a family to this day. The hardest part of the job was getting all of the stock out on the floor in 24 hours no matter how much there was. I – more... remember one year our boss paid the stockroom crew overtime to stay and pull straight pins out of 6 huge boxes of dress shirts. Each shirt had about 12 pins. there was about 400 shirts. The most enjoyable part of the job was great planning and scheduling. – less

Pros: good pay

I learned that teamwork is a very good thing.
My co-workers were some of the best i have ever worked with. miss them all.
the hardest part of my job was working in difficult environments – more... (super cold in winter/super hot in summer)
the most enjoyable part was doing a good job and working with great people – less

a wonderful place to work with a great atmosphere
Office Assistant (Current Employee), Fort Myers, FLOctober 17, 2013
An typical day at work will be coming in the morning to smiling faces ready to start their day. Then I would count the money ready to go do the deposit and finish the rest of the day greeting and helping the customers. My most enjoyment of my job is helping the customers their purchases and with picking out their clothes.
