Review Highlights

Pros
  • You get a 40% discount on their clothes, which is good because they are very cheaply made (in 16 reviews)

  • The employee discount is decent, but that's literally the only good thing I can think of (in 7 reviews)


Cons
  • Upper management not only is on different pages but in different books (in 18 reviews)

  • The new district manager is driving my old store into the ground (in 10 reviews)

    Pros

    Good for professional growth. Most times promotions are given within the company as long as they have qualified individuals.

    Cons

    Pay rates and sometimes not enough employees scheduled for the volume of work.

    I worked at Deb Shops

    Pros

    Very easy going job if you stay on task & do what you're supposed to. I loved working as an assistant there. Wish I didn't have to leave.

    Cons

    It is very hard to move up in the company so when you do get the opportunity, take it!!! The only reason I got offered a management position is because they didn't want to hire outside of the company. They are also very STINGY with hours. As a part time assistant I'd only get 16-25 hours. And when I was first offered the job they told me an hourly rate that we agreed on, after that it was lowered .50 because of a reason that was never mentioned to me.

    Pros

    Great hours,awesome discounts for employees.fast promotions is showing great work and commitment,but won't go hire then store manager the district manager isn't going to give you their job,

    Cons

    Not enough pay,the district manager is a control freak,younger employees challenge the assistant managers behind the store managers back. Employees don't take loss prevention seriously

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loved it, but was going downhill.

    I worked at Deb Shops part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I loved the discount and the clothes. Loved the girls I worked with, just wish there was more consistency and they give seniority more hours than just recently hired associates.

    Cons

    No consistent management. They began to hire a bunch of sales associates at one point which brought all of our hours way way down!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone who will actually stay as manager instead of so many that couldn't handle it.
