    Clueless chief merchant ran the place into the ground. Shocked ceo and others couldn’t see it coming. What a shame could have been a nice place to work

    Pros

    Love the clothes. Easy to move up.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't listen. I worked there for years and worked hard. Upper management doesn't listen and overwork their staff with no assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. When they cry for help don't just bail on them and let them sink.

    I worked at Deb Shops full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small store and cheap clothes. Lots of freedom to hang yourself. Not much to say good. Biggest mistake leaving a good company for this. I applied for assistant but they couldn't find a store manager so they gave me that position n had my assistant Manger train me!

    Cons

    Terrible senior management. No order and treats good employees bad. Doesn't care about personal life. Hard to find good workers. High turnover and loss.

    Advice to Management

    Cross your ts and dot your is! Upper management is terrible and will fire you over the smallest mistake like not calling enough customers that did a return....
