Worked in food service as well as having another job in a highly reputable restaurant and it was embarrassing when customers would come into the second restaurant and recognise me from Debenhams as there would be 40 minute waits on cheese toasties, management was atrocious, tables never cleared, cutlery put out for customers while still filthy, overpriced and food was disgusting. I became ill working there because of the stress that induced it.

Better communication between management and lower rank staff. Say please and thank you and talk to staff with respect and not just barking orders all the time. Stop threatening staff who doesn't manage to open many accounts and get email capture. Concentrate on customer SERVICE not customer HARASSMENT to open accounts. Appreciate staff's hardwork on shopfloor and keeping store tidy and well stocked - not number of accounts opened. Stop looking at cctv to check on staff.

You can work there as a first job and they will provide all the training you need, but I would suggest stay clear.. it will make you hate retail! Worked in Debenhams for 2 years!!!!

The working hours are planned around what you can do, and they are able to work around your home life.

Often - it is a hit or a miss. Overtime is not usually available at the end of the tax year or when the company is saving money. However, during summer and Christmastime there is usually plenty.

25% of Debenhams brands and 10% of concessions as long as you get the staff credit card. (Credit card and credit check done when applying). If you don't get that, you get nothing.
