    I worked at Debenhams full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good break at lunch time, doss job really

    Cons

    If you aren’t a good visual merchandiser, you will not progress. Very much mates chosen for promotions, or the people that have been there longest. Very catty, behind your back atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Get out on the shop floor all day, where your salary is actually being made, by customers coming into your stores. Develop the people that want it and deserve it. Create a proper business structure that every store can follow (for higher management). Don’t hide things in cupboards for area manager visits, or get 10 extra staff on for those days, show them how a store really runs on a day then they would see the real issues...

    Pros

    Staff discount after 6 months

    Pay is low Constant pressure to open store cards Understaffing means that the existing staff are expected to do everything and customers are not happy with lack of service

    Advice to Management

    Employ more staff or dont have so many tillpoints in stores, it stretches staff who cannot be doing stock or fitting room because they are fixed to the tillpoint for 8 hours

    the staff in the store are amazing friendly helpfull and caring, love working for this store its fun and exciting in the team.

    Cons

    company gives you nothing expects the world and pays peanuts, always expecting for you to go above and beyond but pay the bare minimum allowed .

    Advice to Management

    look after your teams because the company doesnt. make them feel valued and wanted if you want them to do all the tedious tasks that head office expect of them.

    I worked at Debenhams for more than 2 years

    Pros

    A company with history and really nice costumers

    Cons

    Supervisor's role at Debenhams is probably the worst. Plenty of responsabilities but the salary is just a fraction higher then regular employees.

    Advice to Management

    Debenhams, as many other department stores, is struggling to keep up with online retailer's and family run businesses. Probably even more automation is needed. Some restructuring of the business must follow.
