I have worked for belk for the last twelve years, we always had problems in our store but things really went down about 3 years ago when marianita montero was hired as a regional manager. She is the most umprofessional, incompetent and clueless individual in charge I have ever worked for, she is a dictator, she micromanages and she is ruthless to everyone that works for her. Nobody is allowed to express their opinion nor go against her ideas, if anyone goes against her they will not last very long with the company. She will make their lives a living hell until they quit. Marianita montero has destroyed the career of many people that tried to stand up for themselves or to what they believed in by either demoding them or simply by making them quit. It is very discouraging to witness the low morale in the stores, the unfair way the managers are treated without any consequences to her. I know she can not continue doing this forever but, by the time someone realizes what is happening it will be too late, the northern region will be damaged to unrepairable conditions.
