    I worked at Debenhams full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    25% discount off all Debenhams OB and cosmetics/fragrance.

    Cons

    Store managers too obsessed with wasting payroll on fixing stores decoratively and bringing in extra staff for senior visits. No progression opportunities for those non-conformists who go against the grain. Sales managers expected to work long hours without extra pay or time back due to staffing reductions.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to the need for smaller stores, with smaller range but a much improved guest experience. This has been the case for many years Do this before you collapse.
