Does Debenhams offer massages?

Pros

Discount cards available to staff. Food sampling each seasonal menu change.

Cons

Unorganised, rampant bullying, lazy management, nobody knows what they're doing. Store managers are late at paying or more than often get people's payslips wrong on purpose to make up for their overspending. They dock half an hours pay if you're late by a second and can also refuse to pay if you forget to sign in or sign out. No staff benefits unless you take a certain bus firm or live in central London or something. No free or discounted meals unless you use their store cards which are either credit cards or a card you have to top up yourself...

Advice to Management

Stop treating restaurant staff as the bottom of the food chain. When people are being picked on it must be taken seriously. It isn't a crime to to show compassion.
