    I have been working at Debenhams part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Team members are what make it worthwhile 20% staff discount

    Cons

    Upper Management Constantly pressuring staff for accounts, conduct ‘reviews’ with staff individually if you do not open an account Trying to get holiday leave is like asking for a trip to the moon.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting pressure on staff for accounts Better organisation is needed Would be useful to actually see the management out and about on the shop floor but they spend most of their time in the offices chatting.
