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

    the environment is always upbeat, a lot to do to keep you busy.

    support those who want to move up and be a larger part in the organization.

    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.

    Pros

    if you love clothes and a great discount can make friends throught clientale.

    Cons

    it is very stressful mainly because you work on one part coverage and there will be shoplifters in the front of your store people in your fitting rooms youre ringing up customers and the phone ringing all at once. They decide to do promotion changes an hour before you are supposed to close the store so youre there alone doing signs and windows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop being so cheap and give more budget hours and give the stores some kind of security on the clothing.offer more than 5 hours a week and not minimum wage.

    Pros

    Discount is the best you'll get anywhere, no other store gives a 40%

    Cons

    Promo changes are hard to do when you have to tear down your walls and four ways just to create these price points. DM will not respond ASAP to issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs lots of work. DMs really need to be able to communicate faster with the stores. Payroll should allow more hours to give to associates to keep them happy and with our store. The attitude of the manager changes the way your associates and assistant managers work in the store, leading to great customer service and bigger sales.

    Pros

    There are no pros with this company with the exception of employee discount on clothing. Is it possible to give no stars?

    Cons

    The local management and the district management are the worst that I have ever experienced. Downright rude to customers going so far as to make fun of them to their face, care NOTHING for employees at all, fighting amongst themselves and I even had the district manager lie to my face. Very poor communication skills for them all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to intervene in this stores management asap. They are in dire need of professionalism and training.
