Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Ashford, Kent – 20 November 2017
it was a very fun place to work but some times changeling at times. the hardest part was when the shoes or handbags needed to be put in different places so you had to move everything around to make thestorelook better.
Temporary Worker (Former Employee) – Perth, Perth and Kinross – 22 November 2017
I walked out of here today as management were trying to get me to do shifts that weren't agreed when they gave me the job. I have a child at school. I was really upset about this. Some of the staff are terrible especially older management in menswear and the guy in suits. I would not advise anyone to work here.
I enjoyed every day I worked here apart from the Winter months - the support network was mainly verbal and less about support from the front line when doing daily tasks. Would recommend anyone to take a position here, however some branches may or may not have the best management team.
Great team, friendly regular customer
No lunch, no hot drinks, strict ruling with no explanation
Although I loved my co-workers at Debenhams, I found the environment too stressful to work in and some of the staff quite hostile. The pay was very low and I had to find something more suitable for my lifestyle.
Waitress/Kitchen Assistant (Former Employee) – Trafford Centre, Greater Manchester – 16 November 2017
This review could be outdated as I haven't worked here for a few years, however my time at Debenhams was satisfactory. The people I worked with were the most amazing people and we bonded over the bad management! Staff were shouted at by managers for reasons that were down to bad management! It took leaving to realise how mistreated we were.
Sales Advisor (Current Employee) – Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire – 15 November 2017
My day at work would be serving different customers and cleaning and selling watches and jewellery, even thought sometimes I would be put on different departments to help out other customers and serve them.
Retail Assistant (Former Employee) – Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear – 10 November 2017
i enjoyed the work i completed in lingerie and worked as part of a team i learnt a lot about the retail trade and built confidence when working with customers. The management were understanding and provided relevant training in the job and culture and ethos was good.
Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Blackburn, Lancashire – 8 November 2017
Despite being a department store and separated into various categories I.E Menswear, Restaurant, fragrances etc. It was a lovely environment to work with as everyone was in the same boat working towards the same goal
Sales assistant (Former Employee) – Swindon – 8 November 2017
Always a happy environment, everyone was so polite and warming, and were always help and advise if things were difficult or hard to understand. hardest part of the job was the late hours through the christmas period.
Typical day was.. coming into the store (I worked in the clothes section), given a pointless pep talk from supervisors and the manager of the clothing section. This talk was about what the stores targets on sales for the day, the whole store and our section in particular. Now why I find this not only meaningless because how exactly do you as a store worker affect to any great degree how much the store makes its laughable. Secondly it just rubbed it in your face the fact your on such a low wage while the store was raking in the money.
The job itself was boring repetitive and just made you become a brain dead zombie from the non challenging nature of the work. Tidy this stand of clothes, help people at the changing room or look for shoes in the shoe room for customers.
hardest part of the job is simply to not fall asleep, which I almost did twice in the stock room due to day dreaming from utter boredom.
I worked here full time for three long months before I left.
You always had plenty of time to day dream.
You can feel IQ points dripping out of your brain by the day. Horrible rates of pay, typical dead end job.
