It was really tough at times, but it also had many fun moments.

Pros

DEB is has a lot of good people working, they are willing to help and explain new parts of the job well. The managers are trained well and listen to the employees.

Cons

It seemed strange to me that even though the store is trying to promote a "hip" style of dress, the employees are not allowed to wear the t-shirts that the store sells. When the store is short staffed, covering all the sections can become a real problem.

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

    Pros

    Variety of merchandise and customers, potential for rewarding career

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Markdowns 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.
