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 team, I had a great D.M. and was trained to be ready to move up. PTO is very generous, scheduling is pretty flexible.

    Cons

    The amount of tasking can get overwhelming, you work with only one coverage and can have Mark downs then they will throw a sale change and expect it all to be done within a short amount of time while taking care of customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It doesn't matter, they are closing all stores.

    Pros

    Great team, very generous on number of PTO days. Helping girls find their prom and homecoming dresses is fun.

    Cons

    The work load is off balance and not good planning. Having to work alone and attend to the customers and then have to change sales on a dime was frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No need, company is closing down.

    I worked at Deb Shops

    Pros

    Great opportunity for development and advancement. Nice 40% discount. DM and RM were open and honest really great to work with.

    Cons

    liquidation; spending on unnecessary things rather than investing in the business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Home office management and those in charge of spending should have been smarter about what to spend money on. We didn't need so many people at home office and then no hours in the store.
