    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Debenhams full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people you worked with, the rate of pay was always above average and staff discount was good

    Cons

    Worst management team in the world, would pick their favourites and give them the nicer shifts or better days off and managers could take up to an hour for their break but you would be in trouble if you were a minute late. Supervisors basically did the managers job but for less pay.
