They wouldnt give me a perm contract after xmas even though the store i worked in had about 700 hours worth of vacancies. Might be because they had to be told i was pregnant after i fainted on the shop floor.

I left a few years ago as a new awful line
Manager came in. Several of us left in quick succession as a result.
Very low pay for the amount of work and responsibility.

I left my job at Debenhams after just couple of months because I was treated like dirt by the management and most of the staff. I didn't get the training I needed either. When I brought up all these issues to the management, they turned it around and blamed me. I value my own mental health so I saw no other options but to leave.

Worked at Debenhams for a year, most of the colleagues are nice but the management are a complete joke and only care about how many credit cards you open.
