While the potential for success was evident, the internal processes, directives, and communications led to chaos.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Madison, WI

I worked at Deb Shops full-time

ProsVariety of merchandise and customers, potential for rewarding career

Conslack of clear directions, no accountability system, process for daily tasks not defined

Advice to Senior ManagementMarkdowns and promotional changes need to be reformatted- a list of sku#s makes the process of identifying and locating the necessary merchandise extremely time-consuming and ineffective. Code the merchandise, have themes on tags so new products can easily be identified and placed correctly in displays. Install security cameras and gates- too much opportunity for theft becomes overwhelming on managers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
