Doesnt stick to there promises
I worked there and was promised a transfer to where I was relocating to. I even waited a certain period of time like they said and then at the end they acted clueless about my transfer. Also never ended up getting my final paycheck so I'm a unhappy about that. Was pregnant also so pretty furious actually. Company is untrustworthy, in my opinion.

Great team to work with!
This was a secondary part time position and I was responsible for wrapping packages, making payments, and closing (putting up all the register money in a safe). I learned how to deal with the public. Management was terrific and I had great rapport with the approximate 100 employees. The hardest part of the job were the hours we had to work at Christmas and the most enjoyable part were the relationships I had with coworkers.

Mgmt changed
A lot of favoritism, at the location in Pt. Orange, Fl. Valdosta Ga was good. Management stability was there, which allowed you to enjoy the different departments.
ProsGreat online training
ConsPart time only.

Good First Job
I worked at Belk for two years before putting in my two weeks to move on to something else. I was hired as seasonal, but was hired on as a regular part time employee because I came in when I was supposed to, came in on time, did what I was supposed to, and didn't call out. Manager/Supervisors were accommodating when I requested days off. They really cared about employees at the one I worked at while also satisfying customers. They would even feed us employees when we worked on or near holidays. I was able to move up twice with slight pay raises, but was never made full time. Very few people who worked there were actually full time. Hated pushing customers to apply for the store credit card. Overall if you have good managers and coworkers like I did its enjoyable and a good environment.

I really like it at belk most of all with the employees and enjoy working with costumers the most about my job and helping other when needed. Management was cool and had to work with each close.

Ok place for teens.
Belk has a good team environment and everyone is cordial. Their management style is very laxed and new policy changes were tough to keep up with, as they were not announced in advance.

What is the maximum number of hours a part time associate can work per week?
Asked Jul 20, 2016
They will schedule you what they want to schedule. They do not have to give you any hours, or they may schedule you six days with five hours overtime. They expect you to eat, sleep, and breathe Belk, even as a part time employee. They will give you full time hours, without making you full time so they don't have to give you benefits. Belk is all about profit, so if you being in money, they will give you hours, but will not fight for you to stay.
Answered Dec 11, 2019
No more than 29. I was working 20 to 28 hours a week. I’m now down to 5 hours. I’m not the only ones who’s hours have been cut it’s 90% of the part time people.

How do you feel about going to work each day at Belk?
Asked Oct 3, 2017
I used to love it, now I dread every single time I walk in there. Almost 100% of the time it is nothing but a headache. You have people who sit on their butts all day, delegating orders to others, yet talking about how tired they are. You have a handful of people running miles around the store everyday, while they ones chilling in their offices enjoy the bonuses the handful earned for them. As a regular associate you will not profit a dime off your hard work. Matter of fact, it will never be acknowledged as your work at all. Your manager gets all the credit, and all the reward.
Answered Dec 11, 2019
I would feel a sense of dread everyday. The job isn’t worth your mental health and the stress they put on you.

How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Belk? What are the steps along the way?
Asked Feb 25, 2016
If they are truly interested it will take anywhere between two weeks to a month. You will receive a call from Human Resources or management who will schedule you an interview with a manager based on your previous experience. This manager will most likely be your team supervisor. If they decide you are an asset, you will be notified within a week or two at most. You will be brought in for on boarding, background checks, and computer training (paid). After completing that, you will be introduced to your team and receive training by your team lead who’s quality of leadership skills can vary from amazing to awful. Make friends with your team members quickly as well as members of other teams and you will be alright.
