occasional free treats
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee), Wilmington, NCJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: lots of affairs which included sample foods coffee and hot dogs
I enjoyed working here, as the customers were a delight. They really looked forward to being helped and were patient if you were helping someone else. My co-workers were very helpful knowing I was new to the cash machine, especially wanting to give customers every discount they were entitled to. One of the hardest for me was learning all the different keys on the register.

Beauty Advisor
Beauty Advisor (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCNovember 18, 2014
A typical day at work would depend on the season. If it was shopping season, then overall the store was busy. I learned a lot for the duration that I worked here. I learned tips and technics on skin care, makeup and product knowledge. The management was uncertain and unorganized. In 6 months, I had 3 different managers. My co-worker were great. The hardest part of the job would have been working on base and commission, because everybody would pounce on the customer. The enjoyable part of the job was meeting all the interesting people.

Productive Workplace
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Prattville, ALJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: occuasional supplied lunch, cash value for credit card signups
Belk's was a great Job. I was on my feet almost constantly but it was an active day each time. I was able to befriend my coworkers for easier interaction between us during the day. My manager specifically was very kind and motivating. She was a very serious hard worker with a pleasant personality and I wasn't afraid to speak to her about any problems I was having if any occurred. They enjoyed boosting moral often and keeping their employees very happy in order to keep their customers happy. We had personal basis with a lot of the customers and often times spoke with loyal repeat customers as formal friends. I would often go out of my way to assist a customer in order for them to have a quality visit to Belk's and shopping experience. This could, and often did, happen by telling the customer how they looked in clothing and offering suggestions as to which outfit would appear better to their body type. This had to be done with extreme care to not offend the customer in any ways. I did not much like putting the clothes away because we often reorganized the racks and it often felt like a maze in the short time I worked their. Many of my coworkers were not seasonal help like I was and would often steal customers away from me just to keep their sale numbers up and that often frustrated me but I just tried harder to make loyal customers who would only work with me if I was available.

Belk's is a fantastic place to work. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to go to work every day. Each day is different from the day before. Getting to interact with customers on a daily basis is a bonus.

fun workplace and outstanding associates
Area Supervisor (Current Employee), Richmond, KYNovember 4, 2013
Pros: great customer service experience, great deals on clothing.
Cons: not much room to advance and move up. work a lot of weekends, with little to no time off on those days.
Love the customers I work with as well as my fellow employees. Belk just doesn't have much room to grow. It's all about who you know and not how hard you work at least in certain regions and stores.
Very fast paced which makes the day go by faster.

It's just a job
Coach Specialist, Winston (Current Employee), Salem, NCAugust 28, 2013
Cons: scheduling system, favoritism with schedules
Sales oriented job with not a lot of freedom. Assigned to areas within departments. Not a lot of 5 star selling opportunities to customers. Obtaining credit applicants commended over selling. A lot of traffic due to it being located in the only mall of the county. Flooded with coupons which it makes it difficult to sale high priced/valued items. Client base is always looking for a discount or a markdown due to coupons circulating every week. Do a lot of standing, not a very challenging work environment. Reminds me of a upscale Walmart. Co-workers are pretentious. Upper management does not have time for peons. The most enjoyable part of the job is leaving for the day.

I worked in the handbag and Accessories Department.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Burlington, NCAugust 13, 2013
Pros: going in early at 6am.
Cons: hours were being cut.
My typical day at work started with opening the registers in the handbag and accessory department. After that we had a 10 minute morning meeting where the sales plan for the day was discussed, the different sales and coupons were also discussed, if we had markdowns to do. Sales to set. Hardest part of the day was trying to set the sales sometimes. Most enjoyable was seeing the new merchandise come in and where to put it.

Clean and friendly environment to work in. Very nice customers and staff!
Loss Prevention Associate (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALApril 17, 2013
Pros: one hour lunch, got gas money for going to court, running earns etc..
Cons: having a short staff in the loss prevention department
A typical day may consist of checking fitting rooms, looking out for potential safety hazards, doing a bag check of associates at closing time, and watching cameras for potential shoplifters. I learn not to panic and to always keep calm no matter the situation. The management at Belk's was very pleasing and a welcoming experience. The hardest part of my job was having to detain teenagers 13 and 14 years old for shoplifting. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with cameras and technology.

Nice and clean environment. I enjoyed meeting and helping customers with their selections. Management was very knowledgeble about products and services. My co-workers were very friendly and willing to assist me at busy times. The hardest part was standing the entire tour but got use to it before I was laid off. I enjoyed interacting with my co-workers and meeting new friends.
