      I have been working at Debenhams part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Fairly good benefits and discounts.

      Cons

      Managers and supervisors bully staff into doing things, at least they did at my branch. They put excessive pressure on people into collecting emails and opening accounts and it’s just too much.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your employees and be fair and understanding. Don’t disregard them simply because they’re ‘replaceable’.
