Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 13 July 2018
This job was very stressful for me, maybe because i was working for free due to it being work experience. Also the manager i had was quite rude and did not take my opinions and request into consideration whilst i was there.
I worked in a range of different departments for two weeks and loved the busy and fast-paced environment. I enjoyed working at click and collect the most but didn't enjoy working in the restaurant due to unpleasant and stressful work environment. Dealt with rude customers, however, the staff were lovely and really welcoming.
Debenhams itself was a very good opportunity in a wonderful place where i could definitely see the benefits. However the branch i worked at employed people who did not offer support or a friendly work environment but instead created one which i did not enjoy working in.
Senior Merchandiser Home & Childrenswear (Former Employee) – Warrington, Cheshire – 5 July 2018
Managers are never on the sales floor and wouldn't care if the department was short staffed. There were times when I had to stay after my shift as my replacement didn't arrive and my manager still wouldn't come out of the office. Very much a them and us attitude
Senior Assistant Buyer (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 4 July 2018
Great place to get started in buying admin but career progression is difficult, almost non-existent, salary increases are minimal, hours are long and challenging but the teams are great and the people are fantastic to work with.
Debenhams was the first job that I ever had and was a lovely place to gain experience in customer service. I worked part-time alongside studying for a degree and the management at Debenhams were very flexible in allowing me to tailor my shifts around my university lectures and deadlines. Training sessions were carried out at the beginning of the job as well as held throughout the year to ensure all staff was aware of their responsibilities. Management are very driven towards meeting sales targets for the Debenhams Mastercard and sometimes too much pressure was put on the sales team when targets were not being met. Overall, this was a brilliant first job to have.
Was a fun place to work, lifted my confidence levels
Work Experience Placement (Former Employee) – Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear – 27 June 2018
I was only there for a week as it was only work experience, although my time when I was there it felt like I was working there for like 2 month, I enjoyed doing my work experience there as it pushed me to gain confidence to speak to customers and engage with them whenever they needed me.
All the customers were very friendly but the Debenhams store was only relying on the employees to make store cards and nothing else so I was the person not to make as many as other people and they got rid of me
Perfumery Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Oxford Street, London – 27 June 2018
I enjoyed selling to customers. Spraying my fragrances as I was on promotion and serving customers. The hardest part of the job was dealing with difficult customers. The best part was making a big sale!
