An upbeat environment with close-knit working relationships
LOSS PREVENTION MANAGER (Former Employee), Wilson, NCMay 17, 2014
A workplace where 90% of those employed had been there for approximately 15 years each and near retirement. The younger employees balanced with the more seasoned veterans created a balance more than a disconnect.

For the most part I enjoy working at Belk, love the discount.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Trussville, ALOctober 2, 2013
Pros: employee discount, 401k
Cons: long hours on your feet, return deductions from your day's sales
Sometimes work is very stressful when there are too many employees and customers in the shoe area. For example during certain sales events especially Thanksgiving/black Friday. Our hours are long usually 12 hour shifts. Once we place shoes on the floor for customers to look at, mismates can happen where there will be only one shoe in the box and we – more... have to physically search for the mate. We are paid by commission so if a purchase comes back as a return the amount of that sale is deducted from your sales that same day. Our managers are more impressed with the amount of credit applications than actual customer service. The most enjoyable part of the job is when your customer thanks you for your help even if they did not find what they were looking for. Displaying new shipment of shoes is fun as well when you get to see the new arrivals. – less

very relaxing work atmosphere
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Cookeville, TNAugust 5, 2013
Pros: free lunches on occasion, got lots of credit, and also my managers.
Cons: the difficult customers and my co-workers when they were having a bad day.
I typically started off my day at the register. First I would make sure that all the money was balanced and what it was supposed to be. Then I would straighten around the register on the tables and shelves. And then if there was any cleaning(dusting, etc) that needed to be done I did that. And I worked on stock. I went to the back to see if there was – more... any that needed to be put out. And sometimes, if my manager asked me to I would start on markdowns/markups. I learned a lot about what it was like to work in retail. And I learned a lot about myself and what I was capable of. I loved all the managers. I did not have a problem or issue out of any one of them. My co-workers were very competitive, especially when it came to sales and soliciting credit. The hardest part was the difficult customers. The most enjoyable part was at night, when it was kind of slow I had a lot of downtime to just straighten, dust and help the customers that came in. – less

Great Retail Position
Presentation Team Leader (Former Employee), Gaffney, SCMay 16, 2012
This was my first position in retail and I loved it. I first started working as a cashier, but was eventually cross-trained in every department within the store. I ended up working for the Presentation Team and loved it. Eventually I was leader of the Presentation Team and managed, organized, and trained all the members. We were responsible for putting – more... out all new merchandise and setting all store sales. I learned a lot about leadership, communication, and customer service while I worked at Belk – less
