Absolutely, the most stressful, unorganized, forever changing place to work.

I worked at Deb Shops

Pros

Hours are pretty good.
Discount is amazing!
Great place to earn retail experience.
Merchandise is great.
Everything is easy to learn.

Cons

On-call shifts leave you with no personal life.
Overwork you. Manager will ask you to do an open-close shift, but won't do one herself.
Pay sucks for how much work you're actually doing.
Unnecessarily stressful for it to be a clothing store.
No type of advancement opportunities or raises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you see that we're genuinely sick, SEND US HOME. Don't do things that you specifically told sales associates not to do; that's being hypocritical. Train new people better. Sales associates shouldn't be working 12 days straight or be getting called in on their only day off. BRING BACK LAYAWAY. Layaway helped the company a lot IMO. Get pricing guns for markdowns! Stop showing favoritism. If you're going to work/give hours to a sales associate like they're FULL TIME, they should get the benefits. Shouldn't even part time sales associates get benefits?????

    Pros

    great discount, people I worked with, I pretty much liked, esp my manager. some of the repeat customers. clothes were awesome.

    Cons

    the pay sucked!!! upper management/ ownership was horrible! drama, since I worked with a lot of teenage girls, they always brought their drama to work with them. no raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire people that know what they are doing. give more hours to those who deserve it, and give raises and promotions to those who deserve it.
